With phase one of free agency over, the Titans still have work to do if they want to take the next step in 2020.
For a long time the Tennessee Titans have had more to gain in the offseason than lose because honestly the team hasn’t been talented enough where tough business decisions had to be made.
However, the Jon Robinson era is different and so far in the 2020 offseason, the Titans have lost, traded or cut:
Beasley will replace Wake, and should be an upgrade as Beasley had 8 sacks in 2019, which would’ve been second most on the Titans last year.
Dzubnar seems poised to take over the special teams linebacker role from Daren Bates.
Sambrailo will play the swing tackle role that Dennis Kelly played, as Kelly will now most likely start in place of Conklin.
The trade of Jurrell Casey caught many Titans fans off guard, but the move makes sense. Casey is under contract for three more seasons at at least $11 million per year, and he’s already 30 years old. It makes sense the Titans didn’t want to be stuck paying a 32 year old that kind of money.
But did the Titans really part with so many fan-favorites just to sign Vic Beasley and a couple role players? I think it’s a fair assessment that the Titans have lost more than they’ve gained, and there’s work to be done if the team plans on making it back to the AFC Championship game.
Let’s take a look at where the Titans most need to improve after one week of free agency.
