The Tennessee Titans offense is looking more dangerous than ever in 2021. The organization sent a second- and 2023 fourth-round pick to the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for franchise legend Julio Jones.

Ryan Tannehill will be entering his third season at the helm for the Titans surrounded by an elite skill-position group that features A.J. Brown, Derrick Henry and Jones. And because of that Jones acquisition, Tannehill's odds to win the 2021 NFL MVP award have skyrocketed.

Ryan Tannehill MVP Odds

Prior to this deal, FanDuel Sportsbook listed Tannehill at +4000 to win the award. With Jones now in the mix, Tannehill's odds have jumped all the way up to +3200, giving him the 12th-best odds to take home the hardware.

Since taking over as the starter in 2019, Tannehill is one of only five quarterbacks to have posted an adjusted yards per attempt (AY/A) mark above 8.50. Tannehill's 9.23 AY/A during that span is actually the best mark in football, beating out names like Patrick Mahomes (8.91), Deshaun Watson (8.66) and Aaron Rodgers (8.56).

With Brown and now Jones on the outside, Tannehill could be poised for another statistical leap in 2021.

Already one of the most efficient quarterbacks in football, another spike in production could help make Tannehill a legit contender for the MVP.
