Titans ink QB Ryan Tannehill to massive four-year extension

Published

on

So much for those Tom Brady rumours.

The Tennessee Titans, who are fresh off their deepest playoff run since 1999, have rewarded the starting quarterback that made it possible with a big, fat promotion.

The team announced that they have signed the veteran QB to a four-year, $118 million contract extension.

“I do know I love the organization, I love the team, I love the guys on the team, and I love the tone coach Vrabel sets, and the vision that he has,” Tannehill said while at the Pro Bowl earlier this year.

“I feel like we’re headed in the right direction.”

The 31-year old, who was the recipient of the 2019 Comeback Player of the Year, was initially acquired in a trade with the Dolphins back in March 2019.

He had worn out his welcome in Miami, and opened the 2019 season as the Titans’ backup. But thanks to a continued lack of success by Marcus Mariota, he was eventually promoted to starter and immediately thrived. In 12 games and 10 starts, Tannehill posted an unreal league-leading 117.5 QB rating, to go a long with a 70.3 pass completion percentage, 201 pass completions, 2742 passing yards, 26 touchdowns and just six interceptions.

The team posted a 7-3 record with him at the helm, and managed to squeak into a playoff spot. While in the postseason, they shocked both of the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens on their way to the AFC championship: which ended in a 35-24 loss to the eventual NFL champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Charles Harris is getting a fresh start with a new organization following an unsuccessful tenure in the Sunshine State.

The Miami Dolphins announced they have traded the 22nd overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft to the Atlanta Falcons on Friday. In return, they received a seventh round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Harris, 25, had failed to live up to the lofty expectations coming out of the Missouri Tigers football program. He recorded just 61 combined tackles, 3.5 sacks 2 passes defended over a span of three seasons and 41 games with the Dolphins from 2017-2019.

Percy Harvin wants to return to NFL after four year absence

Published

on

A former Pro Bowler is aiming to return to football for the first time since 2016.

Longtime NFL wide receiver Percy Harvin spoke publicly about his desire to play in the league once again despite having a career that was initially cut short due to various injuries.

“I thought I was done, but that itch came back,” said Harvin to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

“My body is feeling good…Mentally I’m better. My family is good. The timing is right.”

The 31-year old played eight seasons split between the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets and Buffalo Bills from 2009-2016. He played a couple of preseason games with the Bills in 2017, but called it quits before the start of the season.

Throughout his career, he posted 353 receptions for 4026 passing yards, and 40 touchdowns in 75 games. He won the Super Bowl with the Seahawks in 2014.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette wants team to sign Cam Newton

Jacksonville Jaguars star running back Leonard Fournette knows exactly who he wants as his next quarterback for 2020.

If he had his way, free agent Cam Newton would be the team’s new starting QB.

“Cam went to the Super Bowl…He’s a great guy. I’ve been knowing Cam for a minute now.” said Fournette about why he wants the Jags to sign him.

Fournette also emphasized he’s not trying to start a quarterback controversy in Jacksonville. He’s also a big fan of Gardner Minshew, who had been penciled in as a starter after Nick Foles was traded away earlier this offseason.

“And like I told some people that talked to me, it’s no disrespect to Minshew. I’m just trying to get in the best position as a team as we can [to] win. That’s all that was about. Just friendly competition ’cause that brings out the best in people.”

Cam Newton is looking for a new team after being released by the Carolina Panthers in March. He had been with the club for his entire nine-year NFL tenure, leading them to the Super Bowl in 2015 (which they lost) and amassing 29,041 passing yards, 2371 pass completions and 182 touchdowns in 125 combined games.
