According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the Tennessee Titans have parted company with general manager Ruston Webster. In four seasons with Webster as general manager, the Titans are 18-45, tied with the Oakland Raiders for the second worst mark in the league over that period. The rumours swirling earlier on Monday is that both Webster and interim head coach Mike Mularkey would be retained. With Webster’s firing, Mularkey’s position is now less secure than before. Webster should be credited for refusing to bow to immense pressure, particularly from Chip Kelly’s Philadelphia Eagles, to trade away the number 2 overall pick in the 2015, resulting in the Titans selecting a potential franchise quarterback in Marcus Mariota. However, a year earlier he was the main man in charge of selecting Bishop Sankey, a running back who has failed to live up to his lofty draft standing. With the Titans having four straight losing seasons, and winning only five games in two years, a clear change has been needed. Mariota is an intriguing piece to work with, but a dearth of talent (thanks to the poor talent decisions from Webster) means the new GM will have work on his hands to resurrect a franchise that was a powerhouse in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.
