NASHVILLE, Tenn. — New Tennesee Titans quarterbackAny tension that might have been brewing quickly was dispelled with the start quarterback Friday
Tannehill claimed this month that it'sWillis, mentor to Willis, was asked about the Titans selection in the third round.
Willis was not offended by Tannehill's comments, and stated that they are already off to an excellent start.
Willis stated that “it was never anything bad.” “Ryan's an excellent guy. Everything is great. He brought us over to the house the other night and gave us some advice on the next steps.
Coach Mike Vrabel added, “I thought Ryan handled it very well.”
Vrabel said, “He is genuine and authentic.” “Everyone here knows he is a great friend and teammate. Mentoring is not his job. His job is not to mentor but to help us win many games. He also has to be a great teammate. This was not an issue for me.”
After leading the Titans' top seed in AFC last season, Tannehill will be the starter again this season. He did throw three interceptions, however, in a devastating loss to the Titans.Last season, in the Division Round of playoffs.
Willis was selected by the Titans in the third round. They plan to develop Willis, while Tannehill will lead the way until at least 2022.
