Cost-effective options

David Quessenberry, OT (RFA)

The starting right tackle for 2022 should be Dillon Radunz. He fits the ZBS scheme that this team is supposedly running and he is a smart player that seems to be committed to getting better.

Despite that, Quessenberry is a guy that Mike Vrabel has known for a long time since his days in Houston and he is doing a decent job at the right tackle spot. If this coaching staff wants to go with him over the younger and more athletic option, that is their decision but he is a solid (but unspectacular) option if they can keep him for the right price.

MyCole Pruitt, TE

Pruitt is a really solid tight end, but he isn’t blocking at quite the level he was last year under Arthur Smith. Instead, he has blossomed into a good red zone receiving threat and he should probably be the Titans TE2 if they can keep him for the right price.

Dane Cruikshank, S

There is nothing wrong with Cruikshank’s play on the field, but he just can’t seem to stay healthy. Keeping him as a third safety would be nice, but it is hard to imagine him hitting the open market and not getting a look from a team that is willing to roll the dice on him as a starting strong safety.

Chester Rogers, WR

Rogers started out really well but just hasn’t been able to step up despite a rash of injuries. He has earned the right to compete for a spot on the 2022 roster, but only at the right price.

Randy Bullock, K

A terrible week in New England moves him down the list a little bit, but a nice stretch run could move him right back up into the second-best tier.

Anthony Firkser, TE

No one has had a more disappointing year than Anthony Firkser. I don’t expect him to be back after this year because it is too easy to imagine him going to Green Bay or Atlanta and making similar money while putting up monster numbers in an offense run by someone other than Todd Downing.
