What should Tennessee Titans fans be hoping for today?
The Tennessee Titans had a great first day of free agency, but with several big names off the board what is next?
First of all, congratulations to Jon Robinson on a great first day of free agency. Bringing in Kenny Vaccaro by essentially giving him a slightly different version of the Johnathan Cyprien deal that he had just gotten out of:
That is truly an outstanding job, essentially upgrading with a player that you know is a fit without really hurting your cap space at all.
After that, the Tennessee Titans gave Adam Humphries a new deal and I will get into that and what he brings in a different post. However, what I will leave this tweet here:
These two moves were below market price and ends up leaving the Tennessee Titans with a lot of cap room for this offseason in fact they still have about $28 million according to Cory Curtis.
So what should the Tennessee Titans be doing now? This is a check list of what I would be thinking around noon EST on Tuesday.

1. Sign Justin Houston
It probably won’t happen especially with him being the biggest name left on the EDGE market. However, that should be the biggest swing this team takes right now trying to find an impact player at one of their biggest positions of need.
Houston is a star pass rusher that would instantly change the Tennessee Titans. All of the other EDGEs on the market are fine, but they will either be overpaid or the Titans will be looking to replace them in a month during the draft.
2. Go after Rodger Saffold
The Titans need interior linemen and with Quinton Spain gone they clearly have a spot to fill at left guard. As a long term starter in one of the best offenses in football, Saffold showed that he can win in a variety of ways and that he is one of the most athletic linemen in the game at that size.
Taylor Lewan is already campaigning for him and it would be a huge upgrade for this team.

3. Make one more big run at a Pro Bowl talent
If both of the top options fall through, then there are only a few big names left on the free agent market.
Those are the big names left after the first two names on the list are gone. Tate would be able to start and move around as the WR2 on this team, Suh would finally give Jurrell Casey the counterpart he needs in the middle of the line, and Paradis is one of the best centers in football and would be great to have even if he will be expensive.
4. Look at backups at EDGE and QB
I don’t like the idea of going after another EDGE if Houston is gone. Anyone you just be an expensive stopgap to give you leverage on draft day and who will come of the bench for you.
However, names like Ziggy Ansah and Shaq Barrett may be cheaper than I initially thought with the market dwindling down.
As for QBs, there are two names the Titans should have on speed dial: Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tyrod Taylor.
Go out and bring in a mobile QB who can fit into the same gameplan you use for Marcus Mariota. The difference is that Fitz is wild and Taylor is more disciplined and controlled.
No matter what your style preference, both of those players would be huge improvements and would give the Titans a true boarderline starting QB as the backup behind the injury prone Mariota.
