The firing of Tennessee Titans GM Jon Robinson has been made public information.
Information continues to circulate about the circumstances surrounding his firing.
One insider, Tom Pelissero, has his take on the situation, given his immense amount of league resources.
My understanding is #Titans brass wasn't happy with the direction of the roster assembled by Jon Robinson and decided to make a change, despite leading the AFC South. He was under contract through the 2027 draft, and walks away with another four years' pay.

Robinson’s firing initially felt like it came out of the blue, considering the recent on-field success of the Titans.
It appears that was an extreme disconnect between him and his bosses.
Because of this disconnect, Robinson was fired.
The Current State Of The Titans
The Titans are currently 7-5, three games ahead of the 4-8-1 Indianapolis Colts.
While their playoff spot isn’t technically locked in, the Titans have a 96% chance to make the playoffs.
Although they are in a near-lock to make the playoffs, they will likely make an early exit this season.
The AFC is swimming with talent.
In the playoffs, likely opponents for the Titans are the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, or the Miami Dolphins.
Unfortunately for the Titans, they would likely be outmatched in any one of these games.
Nothing is guaranteed in the NFL, and any team can certainly beat another on a given day.
However, the Titans offense is 26th in scoring this season.
The firing of Robinson can allow the Titans to clean house this off-season, and reconstruct the roster the way that the front office would like it to be assembled.
