NFL Rumors: Trey Lance makes sense with Tennessee Titans
It’s no secret that the Titans have been searching for their next quarterback beyond Ryan Tannehill. The veteran Texas A&M product isn’t a bad player, he’s just not the kind of QB who is going to take a team as talented as the Titans to the Super Bowl.
Tennessee is nearing tis teardown stage. While Tannehill remains under contract, the Titans could trade for Lance and have him sit and learn behind the 34-year-old, who is likely in the final year of his current deal considering there are two void seasons beyond this one.
Tennessee hired former 49ers director of player personnel Ran Carthon this offseason, which prompted some rumors of a Lance move down south. Lance addressed that conversation, suggesting that he didn’t want to leave San Francisco, but that was before it was made public that the 49ers were fielding calls about him.
"“Kyle told me the next morning because we had an install meeting. Kyle asked me, ‘Have you seen everything? People say you’re going to the Titans and stuff,'” Lance said at the time. “I go, ‘What are you talking about?’ And he goes, ‘I just saw it. People are talking crazy. They don’t know what they’re talking about. I just thought it was funny.’ He was the one who told me about it. I didn’t see anything.”"
Much like Jordan Love, Lance would be most effective in a scheme he can learn on a curve, rather than being thrust into a starting spot. With the Titans, he would have that opportunity.
