More like a third of the league
The obvious answer is to let the season play out, see how he does, and go from there. If he plays well, franchise and make a move in the draft if opportunity comes up. Otherwise wait 2-3 years pending performance.
If he sucks or is average rest of this year, go all-in for a QB this draft.
He’s a FA after this season. He and his agent wanted a one year deal....he wants to be a starter with the contract that goes with it. I could see him having a good year and then walking to whom ever paid the most....not saying it wouldn’t be the Tits but who knows.
If he plays well the rest of the season, he'll want a long-term deal for starter money and there are teams in this league who will overpay.
Freakin' Case Keenum got a two-year, $36 million deal. I'm still shocked that happened.
To franchise Tanny a season while a rookie is groomed will cost $25M. I don't see JRob doing that.
IF (and that's a big IF) Tanny plays out the season healthy looking like he did Sunday, he'll get a long-term deal from the Titans who won't draft a QB in the first. The Titans would likely use a 2nd-3rd on a prospect the slides to groom as the #2 like the Pats did Garoppolo.
If Tanny is signed to a 4-5 year deal, the Titans might not draft at all unless sees a great value slide.
I don't think it would be out of the question for JRob to give RT a tag, I think its out of the question for RT to play on it. He is going to want a contract if he puts himself in a position to get one.
We were going to send a lot of money to MM if things worked out differently, RT is/was probably going to be cheaper than if we had signed MM.
None of this matters as Brady will be playing for the Titans next season.
The only thing that gives me pause on the franchise tag is the fact that they picked up Mariota’s 5th year option not knowing how he was going to respond after the last couple seasons, and the price tag is in the same neighborhood
I am fine with all of that, do not want to start over with another rookie. It would be different if we were bottoming out again, but I doubt that is the case.
Two thirds to three quarters of first round QBs fail to live up to expectations.
Grooming a guy taken later sounds good but almost never works out.
The cost is the cost of doing business in the NFL. I am fine with it, it is what QBs cost.
If Tanny balls out I think the Titans have to re-sign him.
We are in no man's land right now, you sign Tanny to starter money 4-5 year deal, and he gets hurt again or starts to stink or draft a rookie and there's a chance he stinks as well. I see JRob doing both if he sees a QB he likes in the draft.
Hellz naw. I've been there, done that, far too many times.
As do I but it gets more complicated if Tanny strings together some good games.
Assuming he does, I don't know why Tanny would accept a deal without hitting free agency knowing some whack owner will overpay and this is likely his final shot at a long-term deal.
That only leaves the tag. Maybe JRob says he'll only do it once under the pretense that he wants to work out a long-term deal during the 2020 season.
But, honestly, I think his play will return to his career averages or he'll get hurt again which means the Titans will have more leverage.
