Reminding Titans fans of the truth.
A lot of Tennessee Titans fans seem to forget what actually happened to the team last offseason. Let’s take a step back and remember how it all really went down.
The misconception is that this is an accurate timeline of how the Titans offseason went down:
-Cut Logan Ryan
-Re-signed obvious free agents
-Decided to let Jack Conklin walk
-Traded Jurrell Casey
-Signed Vic Beasley
-Draft Jack Conklin’s backup
-Sign Clowney to a huge deal
All of those things are in the right order, but that is the wrong narrative about what happened last offseason.
Here is how it really went down.
The Tennessee Titans had $57 million in cap space and had 22 free agents set to hit the open market. Among them were Jack Conklin, Logan Ryan, Dennis Kelly, Anthony Firkser, and two guys you might have heard of named Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill.
Robinson had to make tough calls and cut Delanie Walker and Cameron Wake while also releasing Ryan Succop and Dion Lewis. That added much-needed cap space, but it also created more holes.
Looking at the start of the 2019 season to the 2020 season, the Titans would start the next year with new starters at QB (Mariota), TE (Walker), RT (Conklin), RG (Pamphile), DT (Casey), EDGE (Wake), LB (Woodyard), CB (Ryan), and K (Succop).
