What would contracts for Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, running back Derrick Henry, right tackle Jack Conklin and cornerback Logan Ryan look like?
This is a big offseason for the Tennessee Titans, as they have high-profile players hitting the open market, plenty of money to spend, and because of a loophole in the collective bargaining agreement, multiple tags to hand out.
The Titans have around $53 million to spend at the beginning of this offseason. Now, they definitely could cut players to create more space. Plenty of players have been thrown in the category of “not being able to help their team”.
They also have some top-tier players that they need to re-sign or the success from this past season may be short-lived. Derrick Henry highlights these players and he had a dominant season that not only carried into the offseason, but leveled up.
Ryan Tannehill, who also stepped up this season starting in Week 7, is also on the market as an unrestricted free agent. Many fans and executive personnel believe that he is essential for substantial success going forward, and it’s hard to argue against them.
The cornerback that had lockdown tendencies in this year’s postseason is available to re-sign, and although this may be one of the tougher decisions the Titans have to make, Logan Ryan has shown that he can be “that guy” for the Titans’ defense.
Although it is very hard to find a dependable tackle in the NFL, the Titans may have struck gold with Jack Conklin. The 2016 first-rounder had himself a nice season blocking for the league’s rushing leader and the third-best rushing team in the NFL. He should be kept around if the Titans are going to build around Henry.
Let’s take a look at what contracts could look like for these four players.
