It shouldn’t be a huge surprise to any Titan fans that head coach Mike Vrabel would like to be the next head coach of the New England Patriots. But there’s a very good possibility if that happens for the 2024 season that some current high-profiled Titans may be going on the ride with him.
Vrabel, who played for the New England Patriots from 2001-2008, won 3 Super Bowls, and was just recently inducted into the Patriot’s Hall of Fame, would be a welcome site for Patriots Owner Robert Kraft. Kraft has hinted at the idea of letting Bill Belichick go by year’s end. Vrabel, who has compiled a 51-39 regular season record since beginning his tenure with the Titans in 2018, might be bringing some luggage along with him.
With yesterday’s announcement from Vrabel that Will Levis will be the starting quarterback going forward and that Ryan Tannehill will be demoted to backup, one has to wonder if the Titans will seek a trade for Tannehill. What better scenario than them trading him to the Patriots who are not happy with the play of their current starting quarterback Mac Jones? Tannehill is 38-23 as a Titan and has thrown for 91 touchdowns and 39 interceptions in his 5-year tenure. What a perfect fit for a struggling Patriot team.
Another possibility, although not a popular scenario for Titan fans, is that running back Derrick Henry will also follow Vrabel to New England. Henry, who is the 2nd all-time rusher in Titans history, could be looking for a new team at the end of the year as his contract runs out. With the emergence of Tyjae Spears at running back, one has to wonder if the Titans will offer Henry a new contract.
It’s only a matter of time until we find out if the New England Patriots become the New England Titans
