The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran quarterback Trevor Siemian according to a report by his agent Mike McCartney.

Siemian, who spent the better part of the 2016 and 2017 seasons as the Denver Broncos’ starting signal-caller, will move on to back up Ryan Tannehill in Tennessee after spending two seasons as a backup with the Vikings and Jets.

The former Northwestern quarterback was taken by Denver in the 7th round of the 2015 Draft and spent his first season backing up Peyton Manning in the Broncos’ Super Bowl-winning campaign.

After that year and Manning’s retirement, he assumed the reins as the starter at the position and delivered mixed results, throwing 30 touchdowns and 24 interceptions as his team struggled over the next couple of seasons.

Two backup jobs have defined Siemian’s career ever since, with his only regular season action taking place last season with the Jets as he made a Week 3 start. Unfortunately for Siemian, he suffered a torn ankle ligament just a few minutes after debuting, meaning that his 2019 season ended prematurely.

In Tennessee, Siemian is expected to back up Tannehill and serve as an injury insurance policy in case Tannehill experiences health issues.

He is expected to report to Nashville for training camp this week.
