Future cap space: $55.2 million

Right now the Titans stand to have $55.2 million in 2020, which seems like a lot but it puts them in the bottom third of the league. Now the margin between the bottom-10 and the top-10 isn’t huge, but you obviously would be closer to the top than the bottom.

I will talk about the future free agents in a second, but that money is probably enough for two premium contract hits and one mid-level contract. Without spoiling the rest of the article, that just isn’t going to be enough money to keep the main pieces of the Tennessee Titans roster in place.

This is going to make every game a tough evaluation for the Titans front office as they try to figure out the best combination of deals to put together to make this team the best it can be.

Now I will say this, the way the Tennessee Titans roster is currently constructed I don’t see a weak point if everyone is healthy.

Obviously you would love to have another premium EDGE player, but it seems like the young trio of Harold Landry, Sharif Finch and D’Andre Walker are going to be cheap and very effective. Add in Kamalei Correa and Cameron Wake and you have a solid group.

Aside from that, maybe right guard? But look at how the OL breaks down right now:

LT: Taylor Lewan

LG: Rodger Saffold

C: Ben Jones/Corey Levin

RG: Nate Davis/Kevin Pamphile/Ben Jones/Aaron Stinnie

RT: Jack Conklin/Dennis Kelly

That lineup gives you three great to above average starters at LT, LG and RT. Center should be fine and RG should settle out to be fine after a strong competition in the preseason.

At the end of the day no one has an elite OL at all five spots, so you have to pick and choose where you will be strong.

So with no needs on the roster it will give them flexibility in 2020 to create their own needs by prioritizing certain players and finding ways to create cap space by releasing players.
