After parting ways with Marcus Mariota and signing Ryan Tannehill to a long-term deal, the Titans need a backup and Josh Rosen could be that backup. He’d get to learn from Tannehill, who has revived his career in Tennessee after also “failing” in Miami, so he knows how Rosen is feeling.

Rosen wouldn’t be pressured to go after the starting job because of Tannehill’s deal, but he’d provide insurance and could learn from a former first round pick. The Titans lean more on the run game anyway and that also takes the pressure off of their quarterbacks.

Not a realistic landing spot because of the length of Tannehill’s deal, but Rosen isn’t going to be a starter and he’d know that heading to Tennessee.

As is the case with the Titans, the Broncos have their starter. Unlike the Titans, however, the Broncos have a young starter. Drew Lock was taken in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, but played well down the stretch of his rookie year.

The Broncos don’t need a starter, but Rosen would give them an upgrade at the backup spot over what they currently have. Jeff Driskel highlights the backup quarterbacks in Denver, and Rosen is better than Driskel. He could work with Lock and maybe it’d do him some good to be in an organization where there’s zero pressure to be the starter.
