3 former Titans we'd like to see return in 2024

Reunions are always fun, and these three even make a little sense.

Things are going to get wild next week.

When the NFL's new league year begins – and free agency officially begins – teams are going to start throwing money left and right as they try and capitalize on the first wave of free agents. According to Over The Cap, only two teams have more cap space available to them this offseason than the Titans, who are looking to turn the page on the Mike Vrable era and start new with Brian Callahan running the show.

The Titans have plenty of their own free agency decisions to make – quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry are both unrestricted free agents, although those decisions probably aren't too difficult – but there are a handful of former Titans out there that would make for sensible free agent signings.

Even with Callahan looking to remodel the roster to shape the system he's bringing to Nashville, some players from the Vrable era could still be useful in 2024 and beyond.

And once the first wave of top-tier free agents all sign, the Titans will have more than a few opportunities to make those reunions happen. Here are three that we'd love to see.

EDGE Bud Dupree

Dupree's been a reliable edge rusher for most of his career, registering at least four sacks in all but one season (welp) throughout his nine years in the NFL.

Health was an issue during his time with the Titans, but that seems to be behind him – he appeared in 16 games last season, after only appearing in 22 total (17 starts) over two years with the Titans. He may not be an elite edge rusher – or even starting-caliber – at this point, but having EDGE depth never hurt anyone. It's not like edge is a particularly huge point of concern for the Titans, either: both Arden Key and Harold Landry had productive seasons in 2023 and are under contract for the foreseeable future.

If Raheem Morris wants to take the Falcons in another direction, bringing Dupree back to Tennessee could be an interesting low-cost move.
