The Tennessee Titans make the right moves without taking big risks and earn solid marks.
Sometimes a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, which is a lesson that Tennessee Titans fans are relearning after years of chasing free agents.
Just to set the table before we get into these grades, I want to give a quick overview of where the division stood coming into the offseason.
Over two months ago the Tennessee Titans were fighting the Kansas City Chiefs for the right to go to the Super Bowl. While the Titans lost to the eventual Super Bowl Champions, it shouldn’t dishearten fans who seemingly watched the team collapse into oblivion after a 2-4 start.
The Houston Texans had just lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in one of the most embarrassing final three quarters of a playoff game in NFL history. After giving up their future for Laremy Tunsil, the Texans needed to find a way to make a splash in the offseason with no first round pick to use.
Jacksonville looked broken after trading Jalen Ramsey away for two first round picks, and while they had draft capital they didn’t have any money to spend. This was a chance for the Jaguars to get younger and build through the draft, but it was going to be a rough free agency period because of years of bad deals.
Indianapolis was in the strange position of watching T.Y. Hilton get hurt and old, while also looking more like a product of Andrew Luck than an actual star wide receiver. Anthony Castonzo had to be convinced to come back for another season while Eric Ebron defected entirely. QB was a major concern going forward, but how would they address it?
With those quick summaries, let’s look at PFN’s objective view where they broke down the grades for each team’s offseason.
