An AFC contender will likely explore signing free agent quarterback Ryan Tannehill this offseason.
The veteran signal caller is ready to move on to his third NFL team after five seasons with the Tennessee Titans. Tannehill previously played for the Miami Dolphins before that from 2012 to 2018.
After releasing quarterback Mitch Trubisky on Monday, the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely explore signing Tannehill according to NFL insiders Ian Rapoport, Mike Garafolo, and Tom Pelissero.
“With new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith, the expectation is Pittsburgh will explore adding free agent Ryan Tannehill, who had his best years with the Titans while Smith was the OC there.”
The 35-year-old Tannehill will enter free agency for the first time in his career. With rookie Will Levis’ emergence as starting quarterback last season for the Titans, Tannehill and the Titans were both ready to part ways.
Tannehill made the Pro Bowl in 2019 for the Titans as well as winning the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year award too that year.
