Tennessee Titans QB Malik Willis ''isn't in a competition with Ryan Tannehill right now, and he won't be breathing down his neck to win the starting job in training camp either,'' according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website.
Huddle Up: Wyatt noted that Willis stood out in a good way during rookie minicamp but that his job is to "learn, and improve, as much as possible in his first days, weeks and months on the job." There is more than a decent chance that Logan Woodside would get the nod this year if Tannehill is forced to miss time. However, all bets are off in 2023. If Willis shows a lot of progress between now and then, Tennessee could easily try to move Tannehill's projected $36.6 million cap hit to another team in his age-35 season.

Tennessee Titans QB Malik Willis' role with the club in 2022 will likely be determined by how quickly he grasps the team's offense and improves while gaining the respect of his teammates, according to general manager Jon Robinson. However, the team is adamant that veteran QB Ryan Tannehill will remain the starter.
Huddle Up: Willis is likely to spend at least one season learning behind the 34-year-old Tannehill and should be viewed as a high-upside stash option for dynasty formats.

Liberty QB Malik Willis was selected by the Tennessee Titans with the 86th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Willis had to wait longer to here his name called than most expected, and he will presumably spend at least a season learning behind Ryan Tannehill. At this point, Willis is a high-upside stash option for dynasty formats.

The Pittsburgh Steelers would take Liberty QB Malik Willis at No. 20 overall if he fell to them, in the opinion of Steelers Nation Radio host Matt Williamson. 'I don't think he gets past the Steelers. I think if he is there at 20, they absolutely take him. I don't think they are going to trade up. But if they go from 20 to 17, I think that's a possibility as well,' Williamson told Tim Benz on the TribLIVE podcast.
