What Titans GM Ran Carthon said at introductory press conference

The Tennessee Titans introduced new general manager Ran Carthon at a press conference on Friday, his first since joining the team.

The press conference started with opening statements from owner Amy Adams Strunk, head coach Mike Vrabel, and the new Titans GM, who thanked several people who helped him get to where he is today.

Carthon then took questions on several topics, including his thoughts on the team as it currently stands, and what he thinks of quarterback Ryan Tannehill, whose status is murky going into the offseason.

All in all, Carthon made a great first impression. Here’s a look at everything he had to say.
