Some stunning news which caught many people off guard on Tuesday was the announcement that the Tennessee Titans had fired general manager Jon Robinson after seven successful years in the front office.
During his time as the team’s GM the current AFC South leaders had been among the most successful franchises in the NFL, generating the ninth-highest winning percentage in the league since 2016 when Robinson arrived.
At the time of his appointment the club was fresh off two campaigns in which they’d finished dead last in their own division.
The Titans have not suffered through a losing season since he was hired, going 66-43 during his spell as the GM, and they look poised to capture the AFC South for a third successive campaign.
Some of Robinson’s moves while with the Titans include drafting Derrick Henry, A.J Brown and Jeffrey Simmons, while selling assets for Julio Jones.
One man who could work his way up the Titans chain of commands as a result of this firing is their head coach Mike Vrabel, who should compile more power over the roster down the stretch, while he might also have a say in who replaces Robinson.
For the time being Ryan Cowden, the team’s vice president of player personnel will assume Robinson’s duties on an interim basis.
