Most likely to get cut

1. Kendall Lamm, OT (A cut creates $3.2 million in cap space)

Lamm made sense as an option to push for the right tackle position in camp, but injuries killed any momentum he could have created. David Quessenberry ended up as the right tackle by default to open the season and Mike Vrabel is so incredibly resistant to change that there was no way Quessenberry would end up on the bench without an injury.

There is no future in Tennessee for Lamm unless the Titans suddenly change their mind about how much they like him as a starting right tackle. This is one of the easiest cuts to make.

2. Brett Kern, P ($3.2 million)

Kern is a fan favorite and he was great for a really long time, but he is the 3rd highest-paid punter in the NFL and he wasn’t worth that this year.

The 15-year vet has struggled with injuries over the last two years and his yards per punt average has dropped for five-straight seasons. At 36, it is fair to assume that his strongest days are behind him and unless he is willing to reduce his price you can’t justify this price.
