Ryan Taneyhill Probably Drink some tequila tonight.

GM Titans John Robinson told reporters Friday evening that the team did not consult With the current midfielder who started before trading up to determine the midfielder Malik Willis In the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Willis, considered by many as a first-round candidate, slipped through the first two rounds and into the third.

Tannehill did not appear at the start of the voluntary Offseason program as he enters the penultimate season of his four-year contract with the Titans. While the consequences of the cap shielded him from the team’s lead in 2022, it’s much easier to move in a different direction for 2023.

Named a Top 10 Dolphin in 2012, Tannehill arrived in Tennessee three years ago, when Marcus Mariota It was a solid start. Ultimately, the Giants put Mariota off the bench in favor of Taneyhill, who became the comeback player of the year.

After three interceptions in a loss match by the top-ranked Titans to the Bengals, Taneyhill became a magnet for cash. The Titans flew gigs, but questions remained regarding his future with the team. With Willis now on the list, these questions won’t go away.

Nothing the Titans say will change that, especially since the Giants have spent so much time in recent weeks insisting on that receiver. AJ Brown It will not be traded.

So was Brown, and Taneyhill’s situation necessarily became uncertain. While he will undoubtedly be the man for now, Willis will have a chance of becoming Taneyhill’s heir, should the Giants decide to move forward beyond next season.

Whether Willis evolves becomes the primary card in this equation. His general condition and desirability were called into question as he slipped through pick after selection. The Titans saw enough to trade and get it. Now, in a company that is based largely on results, if not entirely, Tannhill will have to show he can create the kind of performance that pays the Titans to keep Willis behind, indefinitely.

Tannehill will have to do this with a new looking reception body, under the title Robert Woods (acquired from rams) and Trillon pyrexthe first manager and is expected to step in directly and replace AJ Brown.
