After multiple reports about Tom Brady’s high interest in coming to the Tennessee Titans, current Titans QB Ryan Tannehill is firing back.
Multiple reports from Boston and Nashville have indicated that Tom Brady is prepared to join the Tennessee Titans for the 2020 season. After a career season, Ryan Tannehill will not let Brady take his job without a fight.
The free-agent markets open up on March 18th, and with that right around the corner, Tannehill is not backing down from Brady or the Titans front office as he reaffirms his plans to stay in Nashville for years to come.
After making it to the AFC Championship this past season, Tannehill’s desires for his future in the NFL consist of getting the Titans back to the playoffs in 2020.
The Comeback Player of the Year joined SiriusXM’s NFL Radio on Wednesday to discuss his future, and I don’t think it has Brady in the picture.
"“I like what we started there last year, the guys around the team, and I’d like to be back,” Tannehill said. “We’ll see what happens, obviously getting down to the last couple of weeks here. … A lot of conversations got to go on back and forth to kind of figure out where we’re at.”"
The decision surrounding the quarterback position could show Tennessee’s motives going into the 2020 season. If we see Brady signed, then it could mean the Titans are going all in for the next year or two. If we see Tannehill resigned, then we could be looking at a long-term solution.
I would prefer the Titans to keep Tannehill and resign him and have him for years to come. Brady just came off his worst season this decade, and his age isn’t helping anything.
Regardless of what the Titans are thinking, this could send the franchise soaring to its first Super Bowl Championship or right back to mediocrity.
