Tennessee Titans Ultimate GM 1.0
By Will Lomas
Let me take a crack at helping the Tennessee Titans become a team capable of a Super Bowl run in 2017.
The Tennessee Titans are a winning team piloted by a great GM in Jon Robinson with a talented young quarterback and several key pieces on both sides of the ball.
For the first time in a long time this team looks like they are on the precipice of greatness and they could be poised to turn into a perennial playoff team. Jon Robinson has been nothing but great in his time with the Tennessee Titans so I am not going to sit here and pretend to know more than him
That being said, it is fun to play GM and try to figure out what I would do in a given situation. With that in mind, I encourage everyone who feels the same to go to Fanspeak and try their Ultimate GM mode.

Long story short it is the principle of a Madden offseason where you decide how you want to attack free agency and the draft, only you can’t save and cheat this system just like you can’t turn the salary cap off.
In Ultimate GM mode you really go through 5 stages.
1. Identifying needs
3. Re-signing players
4. Free agency
5. The Draft
They use OTC’s numbers and cap figures to estimate what players could make on the open market. If you make an offer to a player once free agency starts, you get no feedback. You just submit an offer and hope that you don’t get outbid.
As you will see I made an offer and was rejected because a team offered a larger contract. It is one I would have potentially met or exceeded if given the chance, but that isn’t how this works.
The they shift you into the draft where you can attempt to fill out the rest of your needs and grab impact players.
Once you start the draft, teams may attempt to trade up with you to get a player they like and they will send you an offer of picks. I take one of these trades to show you how it works.
So, let’s start the process.
