Logan Ryan

Marcus Mariota

-Ben Jones

-Jack Conklin

Wesley Woodyard

-Dennis Kelly

Derrick Henry

Wow. That is a LOT of talent scheduled to walk out the door. If I had to guess what they do with that $55 million in 2020, I would think that Kevin Byard and Marcus Mariota are the guys who have the best chance of getting the big contracts.

After that I think the only essential are that you come away from this group with a right tackle whether that is Dennis Kelly or Jack Conklin.

That leaves Ryan, Jones, Woodyard, and Henry on the outside looking in. In all likelihood they are going to have to make moves in free agency and in the draft next year to replace bodies at RB and SCB.

When you look at this it makes more sense why they drafted David Long, because he is probably going to be the replacement for Wesley Woodyard as much as it hurts to say. It also shows you why Amani Hooker was a good call, considering that he played some slot CB in college and you could also just put him at safety and walk Byard or Kenny Vaccaro down to play slot CB depending on the situation.

The final note is that UDFA Alex Barnes has a really good chance to make the Titans roster in 2019 since the cupboard could be bare at RB in 2020 if he doesn’t.
