    According to this Yahoo article we could be in for some cap issues in 2014: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-s...-cap-outlook-big-changes-could-152601035.html

    Long-Term Cash/Cap Outlook: The Titans will have some cutting to do in 2014 as their projected cap commitments is nearly $135 million. Seven players, including Johnson and offensive tackles Michael Roos and David Stewart, have cap numbers exceeding $6 million.

    That's bad, considering we do not even have near a top 10 NFL roster. Definitely overpaying for some mediocre at best people.

    It was a do or die mentality this offseason with all the signings. We put all our SB hopes of the next few years into this year.

    This news doesn't surprise me at all, we have either the highest paid offense in the NFL or the highest in the AFC, forget which it is, but isn't that insane the Titans have the 1st or 2nd highest paid offense in the league...

    All the more reason the team will be looking to trade Nate Washington. Need some kind of relief.

    This however is more concerning if true:

    Potential Camp Cap Casualty: Veteran right tackle David Stewart had an injury-plagued and penalty-filled 2012 season. Stewart missed the final four games with a broken leg, yet still managed to lead the Titans with eight penalties, seven of which came within a four-week stretch (Weeks 3-6) early in the season. Stewart received a $1 million roster bonus on the tenth day of the 2013 league and is due $5 million in base salary, which would become fully guaranteed if he's on the roster in Week 1. Releasing Stewart, which is possible since Michael Otto is a serviceable option at right tackle, would save $5 million in cash and cap space in 2013 and $6.4 million in cash and cap space in 2014.

    If every single WR we had didn't have their own flaws, maybe we can do this, but we can't trade him, not with questions about Hunter's toughness, Wrights speed, Britt's health, Williams abilities, Walters age. I mean we literally have no WR's that are locks for us, every one of them has something wrong with them.

    Stewart is a top 10 Tackle, Washington is a top 100 WR

    Give me the guy who's one of the best at something vs. the guy who's nothing special
