Tennessee Titans QB’s contract limits 2022 options

The Tennessee Titans will have a chance to move in and sign quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

Don’t bet this would be inappropriate, though.

While one might question Taneyhill’s feasibility as a quarterback to lead the Titans to the Super Bowl, a Tennessee launch or trade in him before the 2022 season is “not feasible,” according to former NFL agent and salary cap expert Joel Currie, who writes for Network CBS Sports.

According to OverTheCap, Tennessee, which is worth more than $6.2 million over the expected maximum space for next season, will cost $57.4 million by cutting Tannehill. The penalty will be his fully guaranteed base salary total of $29 million for 2022 and $28.4 million of the remaining proportional signing bonus money in his contract. That would bring in an $18.8 million loss in cover space.

Trading Tannehill before June 1 will lower the cap by $28.4 million and $10.2 million in cap savings, but the receiving team will be in trouble due to their fully guaranteed base salary of $29 million for next season. The state of Tennessee will likely have to pay a portion of that salary to facilitate the deal, consuming the maximum savings. There is also the question of who will want Tanehill after his season – including the AFC League loss to the Bengals, and he threw 17 interceptions – and who will be the midfielder in at least 2022.
