No. 2 - Ryan Tannehill

Alright, don't freak out. I understand that Ryan Tannehill has struggled mightily this season and it is certainly worrisome. However, I believe the 35-year-old veteran still has something left in the tank. He clearly would not be the move of the future, but bringing in the competition is something Pete always preaches.

Tannehill would be a relatively cheap option that could potentially mentor the eventual quarterback of the future. Besides the experience and wisdom, Tannehill brings leadership. He's played in over 151 games over his 11-year career. Initially drafted by Miami, Tannehill has spent the last five seasons with the Titans.

The 2020 season was arguably the best of his career. He threw for 3,819 yards, had a 33:7 TD:INT ratio, and got his team into the playoffs for the second straight year.

This season has not quite been the same. The turnover margin quickly fell into the negatives, the Titans were losing games, and eventually, an ankle injury sidelined him enough for Will Levis to come in and take over the offense. If Seattle decides to take the chance on him, he will surely be paired with a rookie who will better fit the timeline of the team.
