1. Tough decisions before the season starts

A massive part of the healing process from this fallout is going to have to be put solely on the backs of rookies and cheaper players. If every dollar has to be accounted for and worth it, then there are going to be more cases of cheaper rookies making the roster than ever.

I will get more on the rookie impact in a minute because it is really hard to understand what the Titans (or any team) will get from their rookies at this time. Instead, let’s focus on some tough decisions facing the Titans specifically.

A lot of the offseason is spent building a depth chart that can be competitive and helpful during training camp. But with rosters rumored to be limited before the season this year, you can expect that the most focus will be spent on the most valuable assets.

Small things like cutting Ty Sambrailo, Matt Dickerson, Jamil Douglas, and other fringe level depth players in favor of different, cheaper players could save millions at the end of the day.

A million may not seem like much to an NFL team, but right now every dollar counts and everyone in the front office knows that.
