Tennessee Titans Rumors: Veteran QB Could Be Post-June 1 Cut

Reports coming out of Tennessee Titans camp during OTAs have been highly positive regarding the performance of rookie second-round pick Will Levis.

Given the absence of a fifth-year option for Ryan Tannehill, it's understandable that the Titans are eager to assess Levis's potential as quickly as possible.

In terms of financial implications, Tannehill currently carries a significant cap hit of $36.6 million. However, if the Titans were to execute a post-June 1 cut or trade, they could save $27 million while incurring only $9.6 million in dead money.

It is worth noting that there have been rumors connecting Tannehill to the Atlanta Falcons, where his former offensive coordinator, Arthur Smith, is now the head coach.

As a result, a trade is also a possibility.

Last season, the 34-year-old posted a 65.2 completion percentage, his worst since 2018, while throwing just 13 touchdowns and six interceptions across 12 games. Photo Credit: Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports
