Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans were one of the playoff stories of 2019. This saw them give a boatload of money to quarterback Ryan Tannehill in the hope he can recapture some of the magic that progressed them through the postseason.

However, the $91 million man has had significant trouble staying on the field during his career to date. With limited options available behind him. Having someone like former Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton waiting in the wings would do their chance no harm at all.

ESPN’s Logan Mullen is also of the belief that Newton and the Titans are a good fit.

"“The Titans gave Ryan Tannehill $91 million in practical guarantees over the next three years. Tannehill’s hold on the starting job isn’t going anywhere at that price tag, but the former Dolphins starter missed 24 games over his final four years in Miami. There’s a reasonable chance he misses time this year, and the Titans currently have seventh-round picks Cole McDonald and Logan Woodside behind their starter. “Tannehill was revelatory as a play-action passer last season, which fits what Newton does best. From 2017 through the first half of 2018, Newton posted a passer rating of 114.7 on play-action attempts, the seventh-best rate in the league. The Titans are built around Derrick Henry and their power-running attack, and it’s not difficult to imagine how Newton could play a role in that attack. A few starts for the Titans could help rebuild his value before the 2021 offseason.”"

Imagine a backfield that consists of both Newton and NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry. This would undoubtedly strike fear into opposing defenses and it represents a mouth-watering proposition that could keep the Titans competitive if Tannehill is forced to miss time.
