Tennessee Titans: Predictions for pending free agents
By Max Dambach
Kendrick Lewis, FS
Lewis has probably done enough filling in for Kenny Vaccaro and Logan Ryan to earn a second contract as a backup in the secondary with the Titans. He also brings value on special teams.
Luke Stocker, TE

Luke Stocker has been a solid backup and blocking TE for Tennessee. If the Titans are not planning on drafting another TE, then they can go into 2019 with a solid group consisting of Delanie Walker, Jonnu Smith, Luke Stocker, and Anthony Firkser. Stocker filled in admirably for Walker and Smith with just under 200 yards receiving and two touchdowns. He can still be a cheap and trustworthy pair of hands for Mariota unless the team wants to go younger at the position.
Will Compton, ILB
Compton was signed as a veteran stopgap after Avery Williamson left in free agency. Much like Palmer, being stuck behind Woodyard, Brown, and Evans, makes it more feasible to draft a late round project or sign an undrafted free agent to fill his place.
Kenny Vaccaro, SS
After Johnathan Cyprien tore his ACL and was lost for the season, the Titans signed former first round pick Kenny Vaccaro to take his place. Vaccaro deserves a ton of credit for anchoring the strong safety spot opposite Kevin Byard in one of the league’s top defenses. Even with Cyprien returning from injury in 2019, it makes sense to bring Vaccaro back. This league has moved more and more towards three safety looks. Cyprien, Byard, and Vaccaro would be an above-average group to keep on the field in certain packages.
Quinton Spain, OG
Spain has certainly been up and down in his play since the Titans drafted him, but he is starter material for most teams in the league and will not command a huge price tag. Spain needed time to adjust to LaFleur’s zone-blocking scheme, but he and the rest of the offensive line took a huge step forward over the last month of the season. Keeping the group in front of Mariota and Henry intact should be a priority for GM Jon Robinson.
Brynden Trawick, SS
Trawick has been a fantastic signing for the Titans and has been a true standout on special teams. He just earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl in 2018. For an up-and-down special teams unit, this is a no-brainer.
