Titans fire general manager Jon Robinson after losing to A.J. Brown, Eagles in Week 13
The Tennessee Titans are looking for a new general manager after firing Jon Robinson, the team announced Tuesday morning. Ryan Cowden, the Titans' VP of player personnel, will take over as interim GM.
In her announcement, Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk said the team made "significant progress both on and off the field through investments in leadership, personnel and new ideas" but that "there is more to be done and higher aspirations to be met."
The timing of the firing is odd considering the Titans currently stand at 7-5 and atop the AFC South for the third consecutive season, and Robinson signed a contract extension in February.
However, the news comes days after the Titans lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, who acquired star receiver A.J. Brown from the Titans during the 2022 draft in April (after Robinson's extension). Brown caught eight passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns in the 25-10 win for the Eagles. Brown also has almost more receiving yards and touchdowns by himself this season than the entire Titans receiver room.
Brown admitted the game against his former team was emotional and that he circled it on the schedule after he was traded to Philadelphia.
