With the last official week of the 2017 season coming to a close Sunday, 30 teams are already looking towards next season. Who are the potential free agents that are playing in the Super Bowl that the Titans should consider signing?
As you all know, the Super Bowl is Sunday and there are plenty of players on each roster that will be looking for a new contract after the big game. Some of these players would look great in a Tennessee Titans uniform. There are some definite holes that need to be filled on the roster and hopefully getting an experienced player coming off a Super Bowl run or win would help out the Titans next season. Here is an in depth look at some Super Bowl free agents Jon Robinson should consider.
Logan Ryan – CB – New England Patriots
The best way to win in the NFL is to have a solid defense. Ryan would be a much needed upgrade at the cornerback position in Nashville. He is not a star, but is one of those players that does everything well. In 2016, Ryan had a career best 73 tackles, according to Pro Football Reference. He also has 13 interceptions over his 4 year career. These would be welcomed statistics to a Tennessee secondary that is lacking in quality options. Moreover, Ryan will be 26 years old at the start of the 2017 season, meaning he has plenty of good football left in his legs.
Michael Floyd – WR – New England Patriots
Last week, I wrote an article about the under the radar Wide Receiver options the Titans should look into and Michael Floyd was not on the list. The reasoning behind that is because he looks a little lost out there. Floyd struggled this year in Arizona before being traded to New England and has not made any impact after. If Bill Belichick can not make Floyd a valuable option, then nobody can. Just look at all the no name wide receivers that became stars under his guidance.
Now ignore that whole paragraph above. Michael Floyd would be an excellent buy low candidate for Jon Robinson. Reason number one, Floyd looked like a superstar in the making before this season. The problem in Arizona was that he had too much competition for targets. After that, it is tough to go into New England and just produce in the middle of the season. Floyd also has the size the Titans need desperately at Wide Receiver. He is not a must sign because there are so many question marks, but he has the pedigree to make a major impact.
Sean Weatherspoon – LB – Atlanta Falcons
The Titans have a very solid linebacking corp, but depth is always important. Sean Weatherspoon is one of those players with a chip on his shoulder. He was highly touted coming out of college, but never reached his full potential. On his way to having a quality season, Weatherspoon finished the year on the Injured Reserve with a ruptured Achilles. This may keep potential suitors away, therefore the Titans could potentially swoop in to steal an experienced player for cheap. He would fit nicely behind Avery Williamson and Wesley Woodyard. Weatherspoon would probably even push them for a starting spot as well. He is not a slam dunk option, but would be someone to look at for linebacker depth.
Jonathan Babineaux – DL – Atlanta Falcons

There is something to be said for consistency. Babineaux has shown consistency his whole career on the defensive line. He brings a veteran presence with every play and will not hurt you on the defensive line. The Titans can always use depth and Babineaux would be the perfect guy to bring into the locker room to provide that depth. If his price tag is too steep, Jon Robinson should stay away. Babineaux is definitely not the player he once was, but still has some solid football left in the tank.
Duron Harmon – S/DB – New England Patriots (Sleeper)
This is the sleeper pickup of all sleeper pickups. There has been much debate on Titansized about the safety position. Some people are completely fine with Kevin Byard (who I love) and Da’Noris Searcy holding those positions, while others do not. There definitely needs to be some added depth to the safety pool no matter what. In comes Duron Harmon. Harmon is a quality player that just happens to be stuck behind one of the best safeties in the league. You may know the last name, its McCourty. He has a ton of potential and has shown to have an eye for finding the ball. What is also great about Harmon is that he can play cornerback as well. It is really important to maximize each spot on a roster. When players can play more than one position they automatically are more valuable.
