Maybe honesty isn’t always the best policy as Ryan Tannehill is finding out this week. The Tennessee Titans quarterback has been taking heat Wednesday for comments he made Tuesday about Liberty quarterback Malik Willis.
Tannehill said of Willis, a third-round pick by the Titans in the 2022 NFL Draft, “I don’t think it’s my job to mentor him. But if he learns from me along the way, that’s a great thing.”
Among those objecting to Tannehill’s me-first attitude was free-agent quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, the former Rookie of the Year pointed out that while it’s not in Tannehill’s “job description” to mentor Willis, it is his job to lead the entire team.
