Ryan Tannehill signed a massive four-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, altering the Tom Brady sweepstakes and making it more likely that Brady goes to the LA Chargers.

The Tennessee Titans were one of the potential fits for Tom Brady in free agency this offseason but that is no longer the case, as the team agreed to a new four-year deal with the quarterback that took them to the AFC Championship Game in 2019.

The Titans agreed to a four-year, $118 million contract with Ryan Tannehill. This contract is the ninth-largest active quarterback contract in the NFL and the $62 million guaranteed is the sixth-highest figure for a quarterback.

This narrows the list down for potential Tom Brady suitors as the Titans were viewed as one of the favorites to sign the veteran quarterback. Head coach Mike Vrabel is a former teammate and friend of Brady and Brady could have benefited playing alongside an elite running back in Derrick Henry with a solid offensive line.

Barring a surprise, there are three likely destinations for Tom Brady this offseason now: the LA Chargers, Las Vegas Raiders and New England Patriots.

With the Titans out of the running, we decided to re-rank the likely landing spots for Brady, as well as make the case for him signing with each of the three teams.
