Should the Tennessee Titans extend any players?

The Tennessee Titans should start reaching out for some contract extensions.

The Tennessee Titans are in the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t already looking towards the offseason.

You never want to “buy high” on a player, but at the same time you don’t want to let a player hit the open market or even a contract year if you can help it.

With that in mind, the Titans need to start calling agents and trying to figure out which players on their roster could use a new contract before they take a step closer to free agency.

Which players are the biggest concern? Here is a quick list:

1. Marcus Mariota QB (FA next year)

-Marcus Mariota is a franchise QB, if you disagree I don’t know what to tell you. Even after an unlucky year this year, his total TD:INT ratio is 68:34 so exactly 2:1.

Any time you have a chance to lock down a franchise QB for cheap you need to do it. The city and fanbase loves Mariota and who he is as a person, you have to try to get him for cheap this offseason before he potentially explodes in 2018 (especially if the Titans get a new OC).

2. Taylor Lewan LT (FA next year)

-Lewan is a two-time Pro Bowler already and he should be your favorite player on the team.

He is physical and plays the game the way it should be played, he is probably only going to keep getting better and his love of the game and connection to Nashville should make him a strong candidate for a huge contract.

  • 3. Ryan Succop, K (this year)

    -Has any team been lucky enough to have back to back great kickers like Rob Bironas and Ryan Succop? While he is 31, he is coming off of one of his best seasons and kicker is such an important position. It was the kicker position that probably kept the Chargers out of the playoffs this year.

    4. DaQuan Jones, DL (this year)

    -Jones had a biceps injury in the middle of a very good season. I love Austin Johnson, but there has to be a way to get Johnson, Jones and Casey all on the DL at the same time. After the injury and because his stats won’t blow you away, you might be able to get him for cheaper than usual.

    5. Quinton Spain, LG (this year)

    -The interior offensive line has been disappointing this year, but they are all young and they are a year removed from being one of the best OLs in the NFL. Consistency is important at OL and Spain is still a starting caliber guard.

    6. Rishard Matthews, WR (next year)

    -Matthews is the Titans leading WR for the second time in the two years he has been with the team. Adding Matthews was a master stroke, but now it is time to figure out if you value him as a WR2 or a WR1.

    With Corey Davis on the roster, you could spend a little bit more on Matthews now so that when he is entering those FA years you can throw money at him to keep a talented young WR.

    7. Eric Decker, WR (this year)

    -Decker wasn’t the 800 yard receiver that we thought he would be, but a large part of that is because he wasn’t healthy. 210 of his 563 yards came in the last four games.

    If you can get a WR that averages around 50 yards per game when healthy, that is what we thought Decker would be.

    8. Josh Kline, RG (this year)
