Jon Robinson has done a lot of great things as the Tennessee Titans General Manager. However, one of the more lack luster portions of his first year was his actual signings in free agency.

Now, no one wants to be blown away with big names, because that is how you screw up your franchise down the line. (As you sign big stars that other teams didn’t want, you end up being forced to let your stars walk because of cap issues).
Despite this, it would have been nice to see a few splash players on both sides of the ball or maybe a veteran who has two or three years left in him who can be a good teacher/locker room guy/rotational player.
With some of those guys still out there, it may be the time of the year to actually start looking at them again.
According to PFT, May 12th holds special significance to teams regarding free agency. They are reporting that the 12th is the day when signings stop counting towards compensatory picks:
“May 12 is the date on which free-agent signings don’t count toward the determination of compensatory draft picks. For a team that signs a free agent after May 12, it doesn’t reduce its potential haul of compensatory picks. For a team that loses a free agent after May 12, the move doesn’t increase its compensatory selections.”
If that is true, here are a few names that could be on the Tennessee Titans radar in this last wave of free agency.
Leon Hall CB
The Tennessee Titan drafted some developmental cornerbacks late in the draft, but there is still a need at outside cornerback right now. Those guys should earn their keep as special teams players, but right now the Titans need to find a bridge cornerback in what is left in free agency who can fill that gap.
They may have originally passed on him because of his age (31) but the fact that he is still available speaks to a soft market for him which means he may be cheap. He has also been a key piece in a very good defense in Cincinnati where he played 700+ snaps last year, so you know he is reliable.

LaMarr Woodley EDGE
I don’t love Woodley, and if all things were equal I would love to see the Tennessee Titans make a play for Dwight Freeney. However, I think he is waiting to pick his team around week 5 and try to make a playoff run.
Woodley is the type of DE convert that Dick LeBeau loves and he could be a great teaching tool for Kevin Dodd at a thin position on this roster.
Leonard Johnson CB
Johnson is a weird player, but he is exactly the kind of guy you look at during this wave of free agency. He has the size to play inside or out and he comes from the New England Patriots, where they are unlikely to re-sign him after drafting Cyrus Jones with their first pick.
He got lost in the mix at CB in Tampa Bay because of a scheme switch and from there he ended up with the Patriots where he had a nice stint.
Is he a starter? Maybe not, but he is the kind of versatile guy you want on your game day roster to make your choice easier and he has the desire to play hard and do anything you ask.
