Mike Vrabel is Non-Committal on Ryan Tannehill’s Future in Tennessee
The Tennessee Titans entered the offseason with some major question marks around their offense. Not only did Tennessee immediately part ways with offensive coordinator Todd Downing and several assistants, but the hanging question of Ryan Tannehill's questionable future loomed large.
Tennessee addressed its OC vacancy on Tuesday with the promotion of Tim Kelly. The retention of Kelly prompted immediate speculation that Tannehill may, in fact, return for 2023, and head coach Mike Vrabel was asked about this.
Vrabel kept his cards very close in regard to Tannehill's future, offering a non-committal response to the question. During a media session around Kelly's promotion, Vrabel would not commit to this acting as "a bridge to Tannehill being on the roster" but didn't allude to any sort of decision that would mean his departure, either.
Tannehill is under contract until 2024, but the franchise does have a valuable out if they wish to part ways. The Titans can save nearly $27 million in cap room with a post-June 1 release. Conversely, Tannehill's 2023 cap hit is valued at $36.6 million.
Considering the dismal performance of rookie Malik Willis, it's not like the Titans have many great options. Tannehill can't win the franchise a Super Bowl by himself, but Willis would need to make massive strides forward to outperform the veteran counterpart.
