2 and 3. Cuts and re-signings
I bunched these two together, because I didn’t do much here. While you could make an argument for a few cuts, I didn’t do any because the Tennessee Titans have a massive amount of cap space.
So, for argument’s sake let’s say I cut Jason McCourty. I would get back a good chunk of money, but if I lose a CB in camp or preseason what do I do? Can I just put a pile of money out there and leave it to cover someone? No.
That leaves me in a position to make a bad deal with a free agent CB in preseason or try a trade. Neither one of those is very appealing to me.
I attempted to re-sign Byron Bell, but he refused. I offered him a 2 year, $3 million contract with half of it guaranteed. I would imagine this is because in a bad OT market/draft he should be able to start and to make a lot of money elsewhere.
The one player I attempted to re-sign and got, was Daimion Stafford. I think he is a very good special teams player who I have no issue with on defense. Does me make a lot of splash plays? No. But he is a hard hitter and he if the Titans are in a pinch there I would put him at SS and let Kevin Byard play FS.
