The Tennessee Titans have made a decision on their quarterback position. And, no, they’re not signing free agent quarterback Tom Brady.
Instead, they’re re-signing quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who helped guide the team to the AFC Conference Championship game. Tannehill has received a four-year agreement that will take him through the 2023 season.
While the agreement has been reached now, it cannot become official until the new league year. The NFL has announces despite the coronavirus devastating the sports world, the new league year will continue on Wednesday, March 18th.
The deal is worth $118 million. He will have an average salary of $29.5 million per season.
He is receiving a $20 million signing bonus. With his signing bonus and salary, he’ll make $37.5 million in 2020, with $62 million owed through the 2021 season.
He could also be owed another $29 million in March 2021. He is receiving $62 million in guaranteed at signing.
The 31-year-old Big Spring, Texas native was also traded to the Titans on March 15, 2019. It also just happens to be the same date — one year later — that he agreed to this extension.
With the Titans, he began the season as the backup quarterback. Then, head coach Mike Vrabel replaced Marcus Mariota in Week 6, which gave Tannehill an opportunity to start once again in Week 7.
He appeared in 12 games, including 10 starts. Tannehill went 7-3 in those 10 games.
He also went 201 of 286 for 2,742 yards. He had 22 touchdowns and six interceptions.
Tannehill comes into the 2020 with 100 career appearances, including 98 starts. He is 49-49 as a starter.
