Tennessee Titans fans are definitely loving that roster now.
At this point, if you’re like most Tennessee Titans fans, you have to be telling yourself that salary caps have to work independently of every other mathematical system. It’s hard to figure that thing out sometimes because it clearly doesn’t work like our checking accounts.
Throw in contract restructures, guaranteed money, and dead cap space references, and before you know it, your favorite team has added two of the league’s most expensive talents when most of the general public had been told that it was impossible.
Just take what we’ve seen in Nashville. One minute, guys like Jonnu Smith and Corey Davis are out of the door because the Titans supposedly didn’t have any money to pay them and keep them around. The next minute, Tennessee is making some relatively inexpensive additions, as you’d expect before adding eight prospects via the NFL Draft. That’s when things started getting tricky and many of us began needing a fight card to keep up.
Once the selection meeting wrapped, Tennessee added guys, subtracted a few others, and inked their draft picks before managing the coup of the year by getting a very expensive Julio Jones to join the team.
Tennessee Titans fans are in a very good mood. This looks like a good time to do some roster projections. Sure, it’s June and these are way too early, but come on. Haven’t you already done the same thing? Here’s a look at what the 53-man roster might look like following the addition of one of the game’s best wideouts, Julio Jones.
