ESPN’s Dianna Russini first reported Sunday afternoon that the Titans were “working hard to get a deal done with Ryan Tannehill per sources.”
For the last few weeks, I was told by several sources the Titans interest in Tom Brady was never more than light conversations in the building. They were committed to making a deal work with Ryan Tannehill either through a new deal, if not the franchise tag. #Titans
