Titans’ future will be dominated by decisions on Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Tennessee Titans’ magical postseason ride came to an end at Arrowhead Stadium with a 35-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Titans have some pivotal decisions to make this offseason. They’ll have plenty of work to do in free agency if they want to keep two of their biggest offensive stars.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill — who finished with a 9-4 record as a starter, including playoffs, after replacing Marcus Mariota — is slated to be a free agent. The Titans could place the franchise tag on Tannehill to keep him off the market while they work to negotiate a long-term deal.

The other decision surrounds whether to re-sign running back Derrick Henry, who led the league in rushing during the regular season with 1,540 yards. Henry had 182 yards rushing to help the Titans beat the Patriots in the wild-card round, then went for 195 against the Baltimore Ravens. He finished with 69 yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs. The fourth-year running back is also a free agent.
