The Titans have a tough decision to make this offseason when it comes to the quarterback position, as the club would love to do whatever it takes to get back 2019 postseason hero Ryan Tannehill.
Tannehill helped the Titans top the Patriots and upset the Ravens before they eventually lost to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game in Kansas City.
Now Tannehill is a free agent, and if the Titans don’t tag him or get him inked before free agency starts, he likely is going to get offers from teams that need quarterbacks.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com spoke today about Tannehill, and what the Titans game plan is when it comes to getting a deal done with the veteran quarterback.

If the Titans do use the franchise tag on Tannehill, it’s going to run about $27 million for the team, all of which is guaranteed.
There is one major monkey wrench in all of this with the 31-year-old Tannehill, that being if the Titans can find a way, anyway, to talk soon to be free agent QB Tom Brady into coming to Tennessee.
If that happens, the team won’t need Tannehill, but it could take time and a whole lot of money and effort to get Brady to come to Nashville.
