Tennessee Titans

One of the most efficient seasons of Cousins’ career happened in 2019 when the Vikings ran the ball 479 times on the way to the playoffs. It may be tough to find a team that runs with that frequency these days, but the Titans seem willing to throw it back and bring Cousins to his past glory.

The Titans are in a similar problem to the Vikings, where they have a quarterback that’s good enough to win, but not good enough to win a title. Like Cousins, Ryan Tannehill took the Titans to a 13-win season in 2021, but the team came crashing back to reality by finishing 7-11 and losing their final seven games last year.

With Tannehill rumored to be on the cutting block and Malik Willis appearing to be a bust, quarterback has to be a top priority for the Titans, but it’s unlikely to be addressed in a draft where they hold the 11th overall pick.

The presence of Derrick Henry and an elite offensive line could do wonders for Cousins as he loses his arm strength. Like many of the other teams on this list, it could also buy time for the Titans to groom a replacement.

The dynamic between Cousins and an old-school coach like Mike Vrabel could be interesting, but if Tennessee wants an immediate solution, they could do worse than Cousins.
