The Tennessee Titans made a splash early in free agency and are still swimming in the free agency waters. Here’s a look at the moves they’ve made thus far, as well as rumors and interests.
Agreed to terms
The Titans went out and immediately got Levitre. They payed handsomely for him, giving him a 6 year, $46.5 million contract. He should vastly improve the offensive lines play for the Titans.

On the verge of signing
– This looks like the end of DT Sen’Derrick Marks time in Tennessee. Hill is scheduled to work out for the Titans today, where he is expected to sign a contract before leaving. Hill could be the steal of free agency. I’ve heard nothing but good things about him from Lions followers, saying he was stuck behind Detroit’s talented Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley and deserves a shot to start elsewhere. His 330 lbs frame should help the Titans
shore up the run defense.

Free agent interests
WR Danny Amendola
– His name was immediately linked to the Titans when free agency opened. I thought it was some sort of joke, but apparently not. The Titans are said to be highly interested in bringing him in, for whatever insane reason. I will throw my hands into the air if they bring in this injury prone man. Here’s my article about it from this morning

Players cut/Trade talk
CUT – SS Jordan Babineaux
– The Titans
to free agency opening. His poor play in 2012 and the fact that they’d signed Wilson made him extra fat prime for the cutting. Not a surprising move by any means.

Signings and re-signingsSS George Wilson
– The Titans brought Wilson on shorty after his release from the Buffalo Bills. It was a great move that vastly improved a position that seemingly lacks any talent.
