Tennessee Titans: Cap Room Update


The Tennessee Titans are heading into the off-season with plenty of cap room to make a splurge in free agency if they so choose.

The Titans will have about 19.4 million in cap room to spend on their own players and possibly some free agent additions. This is according to John Clayton from ESPN and The Tennessean. The Titans went into last year with about 12 million in cap room that was unused. Last year the Titans went into the season with close to double the amount of cap room than other teams in the league.

Titans GM Ruston Webster mentioned the salary cap earlier, “We’re a fairly young team, and we’re still growing,” Webster said. “We were just smart about how we allocated (cap money), so that it didn’t all go into the first year.” Yes they were very smart about how they allocated cap money. Kamerion Wimbley looks like a great signing, so much so that the Titans are going to head into the draft with DE being a pretty big area of need.

Unfortunately, that’s one of the problems with free agency, you let one of your guys leave a year before (Jason Babin) because he is too expensive to sign, then you sign someone (Wimbley) to a more lucrative contract than Babin got.

One thing is for sure, the Titans are bound to make a splash in the free agency pool this year. Mike Munchak is under the gun this season and it would seem that the Titans will do what they can to make sure that they put the best product out on the field next year.

One other aspect to think about is the fan base is getting pretty restless and I think the brain trust knows that they must find a way to sell this team to the fans. Free agency will help that.

    Nice to see that we’ve got the money. The question is: Where will they spend it? DE? OL? LB? Need depth at DE and LB and some big guy to anchor up the middle of the line. Could also use a BA safety.

    Waiting and watching.

    Get jennings or bowe and the best FA safety there is. Then you can focus on DE and off line in the draft without worrying about skill positions.

    Let’s hope something smart happens.

    They most certainly will have to do something in free agency..whether that is looking for 2-3 starters and then some added depth…not sure but they will be players.
