    2024 0 base salary 0 signing bonus 4.6mil restructure 4.6mil cap hit 9.2mil dead cap

    2025 0 base salary 0 signing bonus 4.6mil restructure 4.6mil cap hit 4.6mil dead cap

    Ryan Tannehill

    What should the new GM do with this?

    Don't know what to do, but do NOT want to run it back with Tammy.

    The 9.2mil over 2 years is what Jon did prior and this is the repercussions of restructuring. So Ryan gets paid by us even if he's not on the team. There is outs I.e offering Ryan a new contract and taking away the restructuring or including into the new. Signing bonus is guaranteed money straight in the bank for the year. So when players get stupid guaranteed money in the new contract it's not all straight in the bank of said player. Owner signs check for all guaranteed owed there and then they say but can be given out whenever owner decides to pay over the duration of contract year by year.

    I think we should sign tanny for another 2 years to get us over the qb hump we're going to find ourselves in. We ain't going to get 1 this year unless we get lucky in the later rounds. Plus there's not any free agent qbs I'd trust in either, Ryan will be cheaper and got more chemistry with the team. 50 mil guaranteed for another 2 years and even out the spread of cap hit over 3 years. We'll save like 8-9 mil on this years cap and Ryan knows he'll be lucky to get a better deal else where.

    Vrabs said he wants Tannehill to be his QB this year. That's really the best option the Titans have anyway.

    We know Willis isn't it. Even if they draft a rookie, chances are they won't be NFL ready and would need Tannehill to start anyway.

    Beef up the OLine, grab a receiver or 2 and hire a good OC.

    Is the dead cap hit any less post June 1st?
    Seems like the only hope is he restructures. At this point it’s probably best to keep him another year

    Aqutis30 Do you mind - NOT being a Motaur?

    I would restructure it for 2 years to lessen the cap hit this coming season, BUT we have to start looking to the future unless our plan is to go through veteran QB's forever.

    Salary cap has to be sorted by end of april or something. Pretty sure it's a month or so before 1 June. You are taking a risk relying on free agents being there if you plan cutting post 1 june.

    See how this same deal can be spread out over 3 years instead of 4 and the salary cap hit not be so large this year.

    Not sure how that would look in a contract but if 3/ $60 mil with appx $20 mil cap hit each year would be better for the team and give time to find a replacement or give any replacement rookie a 1-2 years to sit and learn.
