The Tennessee Titans shocked the football world last year when they decided to cut star cornerback Adoree' Jackson from the squad. Not too many saw this one coming considering how the Titans decided to pick up the team option on the former first-round pick's contract for the fifth year.

As it turns out, Jackson's controversial exit had a lot to do with his relationship with Mike Vrabel. Jackson, who now plies his trade with the New York Giants, recently opened up about his time under the Titans head coach. Let's just say that these two just didn't see eye to eye (via Mike Moraitis of USA TODAY SPORTS):

“Vrabel got there and I had to get used to him and what he wanted,” Jackson said on a recent podcast appearance. “The type of player he wanted and the style he wanted.We didn’t gel. It didn’t mesh right. My play didn’t work and the way he was coaching didn’t work for me.”

“It matters because the game is 90 percent mental and 10 percent physical,” Jackson added. “Being coached a certain way can effect mentality and keep you from playing your own game.”

Vrabel was named as Tennessee's head coach in 2018, which was a year after the Titans drafted Jackson as the 18th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. It seems that their relationship deteriorated through the years, which ultimately led to a rather unsavory divorce after three seasons together.

“Good coach. Smart as hell,” Jackson said. “He knows what he’s doing but he don’t know how to coach everybody.”

To be fair, it seems that Adoree' Jackson does think highly of Vrabel and his coaching talent. However, it is also clear that the outspoken wide receiver just doesn't feel like Vrabel is the right man for the job. It's a good thing they've parted ways.
