Report: Titans not interested in Aaron Rodgers pursuit
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who may be playing for another team a year from now, recently purchased some land in Tennessee. Specifically, Rodgers purchased property in Franklin, Tennessee — a Nashville suburb that’s just minutes from Nissan Stadium.
Does that mean Rodgers may suit up for the Titans in 2022? Probably not.
Despite Rodgers’ land purchase, Turron Davenport of ESPN reports that the Titans do not intend to pursue the three-time NFL MVP. Rather, they remain committed to quarterback Ryan Tannehill despite his poor playoff performance.
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.
That falls in line with what Titans general manager Jon Robinson said about Tannehill down at the Senior Bowl in Alabama.
“Ryan’s our quarterback,” Robinson said. “He’s made a lot of plays for us, he’s a great leader (and) 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.”
Because Rodgers is currently under contract with the Packers, any comments about targeting him this offseason would be considered tampering. As such, Robinson had no other choice than to skirt around the topic. We’ll see if he stays true to those words if and when Green Bay begins fielding calls on Rodgers.
