The Tennessee Titans might entertain the idea of trading Marcus Mariota at the trade deadline. If they do, I have five QBs the Titans should target.
The Tennessee Titans’ offense is abysmal. There’s no sugar-coating it. It’s bad, like really bad. So, the Titans could look to make some moves at the trade deadline to boost their play on offense.
The interior of the offensive line has been less than impressive; the receiving corps isn’t as strong as some had hoped, and, of course, the quarterback position is a huge question mark.
There are a few positions to consider if the Titans do look to make any moves at the trade deadline. A trade that will benefit the team long-term would be ideal and should probably benefit the offensive line, but the Titans will also need a quarterback after 2019.
I only say that because there’s a pretty good chance the Titans move on from Marcus Mariota after this season. That means a rookie quarterback coming into Nashville next Spring, so having a good offensive line in front of him will be very beneficial for his career.
The ideal candidate would be a current college quarterback who can be the franchise quarterback for the next decade, but a good veteran presence is also important.
Ryan Tannehill could fill that role for the Titans, but with him being injury-prone like Mariota, I would advise the Titans to look for someone more reliable if they need to play him in 2020.
An older quarterback with a lot of experience will be a few subjects on my list. The two other quarterbacks aren’t necessarily young, but they’re not too old either.
Let’s get into it with our first possible trade candidate. I don’t know if the Giants are willing to trade him for what the Titans will give up, but first up is Eli Manning.
