Titans explored Aaron Rodgers trade this offseason

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill doesn’t plan to mentor rookie Malik Willis this season, but the veteran signal-caller might need to be worried about his future with the organization.

Just over two years removed from signing a four-year contract extension worth $118 million, Tannehill finds himself on the quarterback hot seat in 2022. Tennessee drafted Willis in Round 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft, landing a young passer with the talent to develop into a starter.

Even if Willis doesn’t reach his ceiling and falls short of becoming the next Titans starting quarterback, Tennessee’s actions this offseason should have Tannehill uncertain about how much longer he’ll be playing for the franchise.

NFL insider Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that the Titans were ‘dipping their toes’ this offseason into an Aaron Rodgers trade. While the back-to-back NFL MVP ultimately signed an extension with the Green Bay Packers, he was firmly on the Titans’ radar along with quarterback Deshaun Watson.

While the Titans are ready to roll with Tannehill as their starter in 2022, making another run with him at the AFC, it’s evident the 33-year-old quarterback likely isn’t in the long-term plans.
