Pelissero notes the Titans explored some trades for left tackles but it looks like they’ll stick with Ty Sambrailo as a replacement for Taylor Lewan the rest of the way. 

Reiff was forced to take a pay cut by the Vikings this summer and was reportedly available given he didn’t appear to be in the team’s future plans. But Minnesota apparently didn’t get any offers it liked. 

Reiff, 31, is a former first-round pick by the Lions in the 2012 NFL Draft. He finished his four-year, $7,993,700 rookie contract with Detroit and another made $8,070,000 under his fifth-year option.

Reiff signed a five-year, $58.75 million deal with the Vikings as an unrestricted free agent in 2017. He was entering the fourth year of the deal and was set to make base salaries of $10.9 million and $11.65 million the next two seasons when Minnesota forced him to take a pay cut entering the 2020 season.  

In 2020, Reiff has start seven games for the Vikings at left tackle. Pro Football Focus graded him as the No. 38 overall tackle out of 74 qualifying players.
