We are in full swing of NFL free agency and what is the most fun about this is trying to figure out who the Tennessee Titans will be signing this offseason.
Based off of Twitter, Tennessee Titans fans seem to be unhappy with the lack of big name targets the Titans are going after in free agency. It is easy to sit there and play General Manager as a fan. The reality is Jon Robinson has a job to do and in all likelihood has a plan for how to do it. For those of you calling to spend all of the cap space on older free agents, please relax and have faith in Robinson. The team will still be competitive without Hightower, Jeffery, Cooks, Pryor, Gilmore, or Bouye.
The way to build a football team is through the draft, not free agency. The Titans have made some great moves since Robinson took the helm, and stockpiling draft picks is part of that. He is an evaluator of talent and will continue to improve the team with moves even if they are not the flashiest. It also is not like Robinson has accomplished nothing this offseason. He addressed the secondary issue with the fantastic signings of Logan Ryan and Johnathan Cyprien. He addressed the special teams which was ranked 19th in the NFL according to football outsiders last season. Robinson also addressed the defensive line by re-singing Karl Klug and bringing in Sylvester Williams. These moves may not be flashy, but they are smart. That is really the name of the game.
The offseason is not over yet.
There is still plenty of time for Jon Robinson to make a move. The big thing to pay attention to is the draft though. The Titans have 8 picks in the upcoming draft and will surely use those picks to fill the holes on the roster. Doesn’t it make more sense to draft a young prospect with all the potential to be the next great receiver in the league than sign a guy that has a history of injury. Or pick a player that can become an inside linebacker for the future than sign someone that seems to be looking to fleece whatever team he signs with for a lot of money just because he won a Super Bowl. So far, Robinson is making the right moves. He is not buying into the hype of big name free agents and is still improving the team.

Yes, the Cooks trade would have been nice, but giving up one first round pick for a wide receiver is a little ridiculous. Unless that receiver is Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr., or Antonio Brown, there is no receiver worth a first round pick. Wide receivers can be found late in the draft. They also can come out of nowhere. The Titans need to bolster their receiving corps, but sometimes the big name is not the right move. Jon Robinson has a plan and Titans fans need to be patient. It definitely is tough to be patient when the Tennessee Titans have not reached the playoffs since 2009. Patience does run out, but Rome was not built in a day. To all the fans out there with doubts, please just stick with it. The team will continue to improve. Patience is key.
