Which Tennessee Titans should leave?

The 2021 NFL season is officially in the books and now the Tennessee Titans have to take a long hard look at their roster.

While the Titans are tight on cap space, they have plenty of flexibility. There is always the possibility of reaching out to players and restructuring or extending contracts to make their 2021 cap hit lighter, but it is nearly impossible to accurately predict the cap implications of those deals.

Thanks to sites like Over The Cap, you can accurately predict the cap implications of what would happen if players were cut outright.

With that in mind, there are six players on the books next year that the Tennessee Titans could definitely consider cutting. Most of these players have value as trade options as well, but for the purposes of this, it is easier to look at what the players would give the Titans if they were cut and who would replace them.

I’m not advocating for any of these players to be released necessarily, but the cap space that they could open up would be valuable for a Titans team that is very close to getting to a Super Bowl.

Let’s start with the guys who are probably going to get cut.
