Titans Legend Sends Clear Message About QB Ryan Tannehill

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill struggled in the divisional round of the playoffs, throwing three interceptions in a heartbreaking loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. That performance led to a ton of speculation about his future.

As of now, Tannehill's base salary for the 2022 season is set at $29 million. He's under contract through the 2023 season.

During a recent interview with TMZ Sports, former Titans running back Eddie George was asked about Tannehill's outlook in Tennessee. Despite the poor performance against the Bengals, George still believes in Tannehill.

"I mean, he can be the guy," George told TMZ Sports. "It was just one of those days for Tannehill, which is unfortunate. The turnovers certainly didn't help. The Titans had a great year despite of it [the loss to the Bengals]."

When asked if the Titans should move on from Tannehill this offseason, George said he believes the team should stick with its current quarterback room.

"He's just got to cut down on the turnovers and find a way to come back. I wouldn't go searching for something that - you know, the grass isn't always greener on the other side. I would ride it out."

Tannehill finished the 2021 regular season with 3,734 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

There's no indication that Tennessee will move on from Tannehill this offseason.
