Malik Willis signs, completing Titans’ draft class

USA Today

The Titans’ entire 2022 draft class has now signed.

Rookie quarterback Malik Willis signed his contract today, the team announced. He was the only unsigned player among the Titans’ rookie class.

A quarterback from Liberty, Willis showed flashes of greatness in his college career, to the point where some thought he’d be a high first-round draft pick. But he also showed inconsistency in college, and he ended up lasting until the Titans took him with the 86th overall pick.

With Ryan Tannehill as the starter, Willis may not play at all as a rookie. But the Titans believe he has starting potential, and that after a redshirt year in 2022 he may be ready to compete for a starting job.

  1. You really cant blame Willis, he knows he could play alot this year. Tannehill has to prove he can win with new receivers and their top draft choice has had a bad summer so far. With his salary and losing in the team’s first playoff games the last two years, Tannehill has to regain the fans trust again and Willis has a chance to try to somehow supplant him but we will see.

  2. I hope he does very well…the Titans NEED a new face to the franchise. Haven’t had one Steve McNair and Warren Moon.
