Titans committing long-term to QB Ryan Tannehill with four-year extension

Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Tennessee Titans and quarterback Ryan Tannehill have agreed to a four-year extension. The deal is worth $118 million with $62 million in fully guaranteed money.

This comes just hours after reports surfaced stating the Titans were looking to lock Tannehill up long-term.

Now that the Titans have clearly comitted to Tannehill as their franchise quarterback, former second overall pick Marcus Mariota will more than likely leave in free agency.

The implications of this deal expand outside of the quarterbacks room as well. Expect the team to use the franchise tag on running back Derrick Henry, the NFL’s rushing champ last season and soon-to-be free agent.

This contract is well deserved for Tannehill. After taking over as the starting quarterback last season, he posted some of the best numbers of his career. He recorded a career-high in completion percentage with a 70.3 mark.

He also threw 22 touchdowns to just six interceptions and accumulated 2,742 passing yards, leading his team to the conference championship game in the process.
