Ryan Tannehill on Mentoring Malik Willis: ‘Not My Job’

NASHVILLE – Ryan Tannehill stepped to the podium on Tuesday afternoon and almost immediately came under some heavy pressure.

The media availability was the first for the Tennessee Titans quarterback since he spoke immediately after the 19-16 playoff loss to Cincinnati in January, a game in which Tannehill threw three interceptions.

So there were plenty of pressing questions:

Why had Tannehill’s play dropped off so much in 2021, culminating in the postseason meltdown? How deeply had Tannehill taken the loss to the Bengals, and how would he improve in 2022? Why hadn’t Tannehill been present when the Titans went through Phase I of their OTAs starting April 18? Was he aware of the optics surrounding a couple of recent social-media posts, especially one that showed Tannehill deep-sea fishing while OTAs were underway? (It turns out that photo had actually been taken in March.)
