Having Tom Brady would be cool, but why go away from Ryan Tannehill? He’s earned the starting job, so the Titans should not entertain Brady in free agency.
Something I never thought would happen is reality this offseason: Tom Brady is a free agent. Brady has ruled my childhood, and a portion of my adulthood, and is undoubtedly a sports legend. At the moment, that legend is up for grabs.
A Brady return to the Patriots seems like the obvious scenario. However, there are quite a few teams that would make sense for Tom Brady. One of the popularly mentioned teams is our Tennessee Titans.
First off, this idea was made popular thanks in part to ESPN First Take analyst Stephen A. Smith. He has been on the Brady to the Tennessee Titans boat since the middle of the 2019-2020 NFL season.
The idea is popular because of the many Patriots ties there are in Tennessee. There’s Mike Vrabel, Jon Robinson, Logan Ryan, Dion Lewis, and Malcolm Butler.
Head Coach Mike Vrabel played and won three Super Bowls with Tom Brady and the Patriots. Jon Robinson was the Assistant Director of College Scouting in New England. Ryan, Lewis, and Butler all played in New England.
With all of those ties, it would be rather easy for someone to ring up Tom and convince him to end his career in Tennessee hoisting a Lombardi Trophy. Unfortunately, if they were to persuade him to Nashville, that is not how it would end.
Contrary to the belief of my fellow TennTruth writer, Colton Pickard, the Tennessee Titans should avoid Tom Brady. Brady to Tennessee was the dream maybe five years ago. Now, it is clear Brady is washed up and only a shell of his former self.
Jon Robinson has two choices. Option A: Stick with a quarterback who escaped the dumpster fire in Miami and had a career year under your offensive system. Option B: Go with a 43-year-old Hall of Famer who probably has one-to-two years left.
Don’t let the “Hall of Famer” part fool you. You go with the former on that one.
Having Brady in two-toned blue would be good only for the sake of his name and likeness. The product on the field would not be what most are expecting.
The Titans should be all set on moving forward with Tannehill. Although we don’t know if Tannehill will keep this up, the Titans need to be the team to find out.
Brady is the antique product you wanted as a kid and, finally, have a chance to buy as an adult. However, Tannehill, Derrick Henry, and Logan Ryan, along with addressing more important team needs, are like bills you have to pay.
Brady could be nice, but it isn’t necessary. Let’s keep Tannethrill and Henry, and let’s see what they can do together for a full season.
