As he prepares to enter his second season in the NFL, Tennessee Titans quarterback Will Levis is already showing increased leadership, and in particular when it comes to the team’s new players.

Titans general manager Ran Carthon recently revealed that Levis has been asking for the phone numbers of every player Tennessee has signed so far this offseason in order to reach out to them, according to Jim Wyatt.

“The cool thing for him as he grows into this leadership role on this football team is he asked that every player that we sign, could he get their phone number so he could reach out to them,” Carthon said. “We love to see that.”

Levis is entering a much different situation than the one he saw during his rookie season, when the offensive line was putrid and the receiving corps. was extremely thin behind DeAndre Hopkins.

The Titans have done a good job thus far giving him more weapons, with the additions of wide receiver Calvin Ridley and running back Tony Pollard.

And, Tennessee made a key addition to the offensive line with the signing of center Lloyd Cushenberry, although there is still work to be done, with the Titans needing to at least add a left tackle.

However, the Titans are expected to address that need in the 2024 NFL draft, and the hope is Notre Dame’s Joe Alt will be the guy who solidifies the group upfront for the long term.

So far, Levis is excited with what the Titans are doing around him, as head coach Brian Callahan stated.

“We’ve surrounded (Will) with more playmakers, which I think every quarterback desires,” Callahan said. “So, we’ve had a chance to build some explosiveness I think… We’re trying to give him a chance to have success, and I think as a young quarterback that is all you can ask for, a team investing in the talent around you that gives you a chance to go out and perform.

“Will is really excited,” Callahan added. “I think it makes him want to work harder. He is an intense personality as it is. It inspires him to go work, which he doesn’t have any problem doing. Just the excitement of, man, we’re being aggressive, we’re trying to add good players. We aren’t sitting back, and (we’re) being aggressive in our offseason approach. I think he appreciates it and I think he is excited about it.”

It was difficult to fully evaluate Levis during his rookie campaign thanks to the lackluster group around him, but with an improved unit around him in 2024, that will not be the case in Year 2.
