Tennessee Titans roster remains nearly intact for next season

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Perhaps Tennessee Titans executive vice president/general manager Jon Robinson’s two most critical moves since the AFC Championship game were locking up a pair of the team’s own free agents with new, multi-year contracts—quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry.

Tannehill, acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins, was a catalyst for the team’s resurgence in 2019, taking control as the starter in Week 7 and finishing the campaign with a league-best 117.5 passer rating. He was named to his first Pro Bowl and voted the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill sets Career, Franchise Records

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – A year earlier, Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill was still with the Miami Dolphins, where he concluded his seventh season with the Dolphins. Robinson engineered a trade in March 2019 that landed the signal caller in Tennessee, where he began the campaign as the backup to Marcus Mariota.

Tennessee Titans’ Jon Robinson shapes up Roster

 

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson has had three offseasons to mold the roster to his liking and can point to tangible evidence of progress. After being named to his current post in January 2016, the team tripled its win total from 2015, going from three wins to nine wins and earning him the additional title from Amy Adams Strunk of executive vice president.

Her confidence was rewarded in 2017, when the Titans earned their first postseason berth since the 2008 season and won their first postseason game since the 2003 campaign.
