Malik Willis has just three NFL starts to this point, but that may be all he receives in a Tennessee Titans uniform.
According to a report Monday from Peter King, the Titans have lost faith in the young quarterback.
Willis, who was a third-round draft pick in 2022, didn’t make much of his opportunities when Ryan Tannehill sustained an injury last season. The Liberty product averaged 4.5 yards per passing attempt, failing to record a passing touchdown but throwing three picks.

In the context of his report above, King floated the possibility of Tennessee selecting C.J. Stroud as the franchise’s presumptive number one quarterback.
As the reporter framed it, “Coach Mike Vrabel is tight with Ohio State coach Ryan Day. Vrabel will get the real about Stroud from Day, and I think that real will be mostly positive. And Vrabel will be a good coach for Stroud.”
While a lot can change in a couple of months, it’s worth noting that coach Vrabel sung Willis’ praises in March. Of the young quarterback’s offseason development, Vrabel said the following.
“He’s already dove into the offseason, and he’s communicated with the staff about where he’s been, working with different coaches…he understands what it is supposed to look like, being a starting quarterback, being a quarterback in this league.”
