Part of that was due to Brady's close relationship Titans head coach and former New England Patriots teammate Mike Vrabel. Tennessee also boasts a strong offensive line and plenty of weapons for Brady to work with, so it seemed like a natural fit for the six-time Super Bowl champion.

Titans players, including offensive lineman Taylor Lewan, seem to be just fine with that result. Lewan recently talked to NFL Network's Mike Giardi about Tennessee choosing Tannehill over Brady while throwing in some funny jabs at the ex-Pats QB.
Read what Lewan had to say in Giardi's tweet below:
Asked #Titans tackle Taylor Lewan about the team sticking with Ryan Tannehill instead of diving into free agency and signing Tom Brady. Nice nod to Tannehill and some funny jabs at TB and #Titans coach Mike Vrabel. @nflnetwork pic.twitter.com/m0jOJ51Lhf

Lewan is quite the character.
It's clear the Titans have tremendous faith in Tannehill, and it's hard to blame them after seeing how he performed last season. The 31-year-old finished the campaign with the highest passer rating of all QBs (117.5) while tossing 22 touchdown passes and only six interceptions.
