Free agency has been open for nearly three months now, but the Tennessee Titans should be busier over the next three days than they have been since the 2024 NFL Draft.

That might sound crazy, but hear me out on this. In his post-draft press conference, Ran Carthon said that they were still planning on signing free agents and that they wanted to get those guys in sooner rather than later.

His reasoning was that he wanted guys to have a chance to get in the building, build team chemistry, and understand how things were going to be done under new HC Brian Callahan.

Shortly thereafter the Titans signed Tyler Boyd to start in the slot and Nick Vannett to add depth at tight end.

Curiously, the Titans didn't add a safety despite repeatedly saying that was a position that they were looking at and even being connected to players like Justin Simmons and Marcus Maye (both are still free agents).

So are the Titans done adding free agents? Did they just decide that they were better off with what they have now? No, I don't think that is it.

What are the Tennessee Titans going to do next?

I believe that the Titans wanted some new guys in here before OTAs started, but once OTAs kicked off they were always going to give the guys on the roster a chance to show that they could be the solution to the problems that the Titans still have.

For example, instead of adding another cornerback for depth they gave their guys a chance to battle it out and former Vol, Gabe Jeudy-Lally has emerged as someone who could earn a spot on the depth chart and save the team a few million dollars in cap space this season.

However, the team's mandatory minicamp finished today and there is a 72-hour window open between today and the final week of OTAs which span June 10-13.

If someone was going to pull away from the pack and prove that they were worthy of a bigger role than Brian Callahan and Ran Carthon had in mind, they would have already done it by now.

Now that the coaches have a clear idea of what to expect from this roster heading into training camp, they have a chance to call some free agents and get them in the building for a few OTA practices before they have a break for the summer.

If nothing happens over the next three days, then I could see the Titans sitting on their hands for the next month and a half and letting training camp play out before making any more moves. But, considering how much cap space they still have this is the most strategic time to add veteran help at safety, EDGE, offensive tackle, and/or defensive tackle.
