Titans and QB Mason Rudolph reach agreement on 1-year contract worth $3.62M with incentives

The Tennessee Titans made a change at quarterback last season by turning to rookie Will Levis. Now, they are adding another signal-caller to the mix. The team has agreed to terms with former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph on a one-year deal worth up to $3.62 million. This move was reported by Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. With Rudolph joining Levis, the Titans’ quarterbacks room now consists of Rudolph and third-year passer Malik Willis.

Mason Rudolph, 28, spent six seasons with the Steelers after being selected in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He has career totals of 3,085 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions in 21 games. Rudolph has a record of 8-4-1 over 13 starts. He helped the Steelers make the playoffs during the most recent campaign while Kenny Pickett was sidelined with a sprained ankle. Rudolph is now set to start a new chapter with the Titans.

The addition of Mason Rudolph comes as the Titans are going through the first offseason of a new era for the organization. Former head coach Mike Vrabel was fired after two consecutive seasons without a playoff berth, and Brian Callahan, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals, has taken over as head coach. In addition to acquiring Rudolph, the Titans have also signed wide receiver Calvin Ridley to a four-year, $92 million deal. Running back Derrick Henry is set to join the Baltimore Ravens on a two-year deal.

The Titans are also likely to part ways with longtime quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was benched in 2023. The Steelers had shown interest in Tannehill as competition for Pickett, but ultimately signed Russell Wilson instead. According to Callahan, building harmony between quarterbacks is a top priority for the team. He emphasized the importance of having a backup quarterback who can support the starter in the room and maintain a positive relationship. It seems that Rudolph and Levis have been identified as a good fit for the Titans.
