The Titans surprisingly fired GM John Robinson in the middle of the playoffs

Now in Week 13 of the NFL season, it’s a surprise shootout.

Tennessee Titans have parted ways with general manager John Robinson, according to multiple reports.

Robinson has been the team’s general manager since 2016 and has made the playoffs in four of his six years at the helm. The Titans are well on their way to another playoff berth this season, currently 7-5 and leading the AFC South by three games.

It’s a very interesting move and an odd time for a team that has been highly competitive throughout Robinson’s career. In 2019, the Titans competed in the AFC Championship before falling to the eventual Super Bowl champion Chiefs.

Perhaps not coincidentally, the Titans faced the Eagles on Sunday, the team that Robinson controversially traded for star receiver AJ Brown in the offseason. In his first game against his former team, Brown caught eight passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns in a 35–10 victory.

Robinson served in the front offices of the Patriots and Buccaneers before being hired by the Titans.
