Earlier this week, local radio host Jared Stillman suggested that Aaron Rodgers would be “open” to playing for the Tennessee Titans after it was revealed that he had purchased land in the Nashville area.
“Aaron Rodgers has purchased land and is in the process of building a home in the Nashville-suburb of Franklin,” the report said. “Also, source says Rodgers is ‘open’ joining the Titans. Another source says that current Packers teammates do not expect Rodgers back in GB.”
However, the news is not so good for Titans fans just a few days later as ESPN’s Titans reporter Turron Davenport reported the team doesn’t consider Rodgers to be an option for them at quarterback.
“However, a team source confirmed to ESPN that the Titans don’t consider Rodgers to be an option for them at quarterback and have full intentions of moving forward with Tannehill.”
Titans GM Jon Robinson made it painfully clear that he truly believes in Ryan Tannehill.
“Ryan’s our quarterback,” Robinson said. “He’s made a lot of plays for us. He’s a great leader. He’s extremely tough. Love what Ryan brings to our football team, love what he stands for. We’re looking forward to him getting back in there, and getting back on track, and keeping this thing rolling.”
The Green Bay Packers may not be ready for a divorce anyway. The team reportedly is interested in offering Rodgers a “monster deal” to remain in Green Bay going forward, according to Benjamin Allbright.
Tannehill completed 15 of 24 passes for 220 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the divisional-round loss to the Bengals.
Aaron Rodgers completed 20-of-29 passes for 225 yards and no scores as the Packers lost 13-10 to the 49ers in the divisional round.
