Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has gone 3-1 since taking over for Marcus Mariota during the team’s Week 6 loss to the Broncos. His strong play has resulted in the team staying alive in the playoff race.
Tennessee is expected to make a strong effort to retain Tannehill if his great play continues down the stretch. However, it’s difficult to determine the market for Tannehill. To date, he hasn’t lived up to his billing as a first-round pick with the Dolphins. He was only acquired in an effort to push Mariota, before Mariota’s disappointing play left the team with no other choice but to make a change.
Tannehill, 31, has earned rave reviews within the organization. The change of scenery could be attributed to his success and his market value could be on the rise. Scouts have also been impressed.
The Titans have not negotiated with Tannehill’s camp about a new contract. That could change soon. So far this season, he’s thrown eight touchdowns to four interceptions with a 71.3% completion rate and 104.4 QB rating. His restructured contract is due to pay him over $2 million in bonuses if he keeps up his strong play.
