Titans Bench Marcus Mariota In Loss To Broncos

Oct 14, 2019 8:31 AM

The Tennessee Titans pulled Marcus Mariota in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.

He was replaced by Ryan Tannehill in the team's 16-0 loss.

Mike Vrabel said afterward that he'll evaluate the quarterback position this week.

"Things happen for a reason, and I truly believe that. I can learn from this and grow from this, and I'll become a better player from it," Mariota said. "For me as a competitor, I would love to be out there with my guys. But again, it's going to be completely up to the coaches and what they decide."

While the Titans didn't put up any points with Tannehill, he did lead them to their only two trips to the red zone.

Aug 8, 2019 8:22 AM

Jalen Ramsey made it clear he's ready for a big payday when he reported to camp last month.

If the Jacksonville Jaguars don't give him the contract he desires, the cornerback has already picked out a few potential destinations.

On an episode of the Bussin' With the Boys podcast, Ramsey revealed two clubs he's interested in.

"It would probably be either here [Titans] or Vegas [Raiders]," Ramsey said.

The Jaguars picked up his $13.7 million option for 2020 and can franchise tag him in 2021.

Derrick Morgan Retiring From NFL At Age 30

Jul 15, 2019 8:24 AM

Derrick Morgan is retiring from the NFL at the age of 30.

The former Tennessee Titans linebacker will turn his attention to making a more significant impact outside of football.

Morgan spent nine seasons with the Titans after they selected him with the 16th overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft.

"My purpose in life is bigger than the game," Morgan said. "What football taught me was the power of influence. My goal is to create better and more meaningful opportunities for marginalized communities to break the cycles of generational poverty and build greater wealth and economic mobility. I feel a deep responsibility to leverage my platform for this."

Mike Vrabel Reiterates Ryan Tannehill Will Be Backup

Jul 8, 2019 8:28 AM

The Tennessee Titans don't see any quarterback controversy between Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill.

Mike Vrabel reiterated that Tannehill, acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins, will serve as the team's backup.

"His job as a backup -- everybody's job as a backup -- is to push the guy in front of him," Vrabel said. "To compete and try to make yourself better and try to make the team better and see how everybody responds."

Tannehill was the eighth overall pick back in 2012.

Jun 13, 2019 8:23 AM

The Tennessee Titans will retire the numbers of Eddie George and Steve McNair during a ceremony before the team's home opener against the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 15.

McNair wore No. 9 and George wore No. 27. Both played for the Houston Oilers before the franchise relocated to Tennessee in 1997.

"This is a big moment for me personally, because I love these guys and I know my dad [Bud Adams] loved these guys. He would be so happy and proud that we are honoring them today," team owner Amy Adams Strunk said.

"Together, Steve and Eddie led the Titans to new heights with 80 wins and four playoff seasons together, including an AFC championship and Super Bowl appearance in 1999. I am pleased to announce that no other Titan will ever wear No. 9 and No. 27 again."

Brady's Age Factored In Adam Humphries Choosing Titans Over Patriots

Jun 4, 2019 9:04 AM

As a free agent, Adam Humphries says Tom Brady's age factored in his decision to sign a four-year deal with the Tennessee Titans.

The wide receiver was also coveted by the New England Patriots.

"Obviously, he's the G.O.A.T. That's that simple," Humphries said. "But there's so much that factors into a decision. It was a four-year deal. Who knows how many (years) he's got left? There's a lot that goes into it.

"Obviously the chance to play with him would have been awesome, but a lot of things factor into that decision. Ultimately, I thought this was coming here to a team that was on the rise and with young talent on the offense and a really good defense. They'd had a taste of the playoffs. I felt like my need at the slot position was great. I felt like I could really contribute and start something new here."
