The Tennessee Titans fired GM Jon Robinson on Tuesday. This was a surprising development.
Robinson has been in the role since January 2016. He became the team’s Executive Vice President and GM in January 2017.
It comes just days after the Titans suffered a 35-10 blowout loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Robinson traded star receiver A.J. Brown to the Eagles in April.
Brown had eight receptions for 119 yards and two touchdowns against his former team.
“Since becoming (the) controlling owner in 2015, my goal has been to raise the standard for what is expected in all facets of our organization. I believe we have made significant progress both on and off the field through investments in leadership, personnel, and new ideas,” Titans owner Amy Adams Struck said in a statement. “This progress includes the core of our business, the football team itself, which is regularly evaluated both by results (wins and losses) and team construction/roster building. I am proud of what we have accomplished in my eight seasons of ownership, but I believe there is more to be done and higher aspirations to be met.
“I want to thank Jon for his dedicated work to set this organization on an upward trajectory and I wish him and his family the best.”
Vice President of Player Personnel Ryan Cowden will serve as interim GM. The team has begun the process to search for a new GM.
Before joining the Titans, Robinson worked for the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
