Some pretty massive news for the Titans.

It isn’t getting the attention it deserves, but there is some pretty massive news going around right now that could seriously change the Tennessee Titans over the next 12 months.

I’m not talking about anything viral, I am talking about the latest proposed agreement for the 2020 season between the NFL and the NFLPA.

Tom Pelissero has been excellent at keeping people informed on this, including what we are about to talk about. Specifically, the latest proposal from the NFLPA to the NFL about what they think is fair for the 2020 season.

This has a pretty important number hidden inside:

That’s right, just $198.2 million in cap space for 2021 which is something close to $50 million less than what was being projected in the spring, and it is around $20 million less than what Over The Cap has been using as their projection.

And right now I know that everyone is focusing on the 2020 season and how it will be played, but that is a VERY important figure we just learned about.

The potential impact of that is huge, but before we look at the biggest ripple effects from that decision, let me remind you exactly where the Titans stand right now.
