    I would say disappointed. I think we whiffed on some quality D players, sucks we missed out on Dansby. Did we even attempt to sign BJ Raji, who signed a one year 4 million deal? What about Brandon Spikes, a 1 year 3 million deal?

    I did like the Oher deal and think the contract is just fine and easy to recover from if he busts here. I also liked McCluster BUT what about guys like Moreno and Andre Brown who are sitting out there with no deals? Either one of those guys on a one year deal for Greene insurance would be great.

    Satisfied

    Would like to have kept Verner around, but I am not big on spending money on older guys who have never really been stand outs. It wasn't flashy, but it was smart, it will pay off next year.

    I'm decently satisfied, at least with the McCluster signing, although picking someone up for the D like Brandon Spikes would have really made me grin.

    Disappointed for a different reason than many of you. I would prefer the Titans build around the Green Bay Packers model -- don't overpay for free agents and focus on building through the draft and then keeping your homegrown players around.

    The Titans let Verner leave for a small contract and overpaid for McCluster and Oher (two players who are below-average at their positions).

    It's not a disaster or anything, as the overpaying isn't too severe and McCluster and Oher aren't important enough to derail the team.

    But still, I would say I'm slightly...

    Neutral. We're no worse or better. Filled some holes and created one or two.

    I like the McCluster and Woods deals. Oher could be a great signing but I wasnt excited by it much. And the Whitehurst thing isnt as bad as most you guys make it out to be.

    Overall Im on the fence about our 2014 FA, so far its been questionable, but at the same time productive. So we'll see what happens. Moving CJ would make things a little better also.

    -Resigned Jackie Battle: C Nothing special here, should move the chains on short distance downs
    -Resigned Pollard: A- Great move, had to be done.
    -Reigned Ropati Pitoitua: C+ Decent move, good depth
    -Resigned Leon Washington: C+ Good returner, provides little at RB
    -Signed Dexter McCluster: B Nice player to have, but not someone to carry a heavy load.
    -Signed Al Woods: C- Decent depth for what he's worth I guess.
    -Signed Charlie Whitehurst: D+ Downgrade the backup QB position with an injury prone QB. Overpaid, but at least he knows Whiz's system.
    -Signed Wesley Woodyard: B- Solid depth, but not the answer at ILB.
    -Signed Michael Oher: C- Overpaid, bad player, not the answer at OT.
    -Resigned Antonio Johnson: C- Won't have a noticeable impact on the team
    -Resigned Marc Mariani: C Both return specialists can't make the roster.
    -Cut David Stewart: A Had to be done.
    -Cut Ryan Fitzpatrick: D- Downgraded the position.
    -Cut Rob Bironas: C Better to cut a kicker one year early than one year late. Still debatable, as he had a good 2013 season.
    -Letting Verner go with a lot of available cap space: F Good teams keep the players they draft and spend those 4 years building up. For what he got from Tampa Bay, we should have thrown an extra few million at him. Anyone who remembers our Verner discussion this off-season knows that I was tough on him, and still believe J-Mac to be the better CB. The fact that I gave this move an F should mean something.
    -Not going after any big name Free Agents with all the cap space we have: F

    Coaching Hires: B- They kept the guys we needed to keep, but some of Whiz's guys are less than admirable. I like Horton though, even though I hate the 3-4 Defense.

    Overall grade: C-
    This off-season could have and should have been a lot better. Before this off-season I had 100% faith in Ruston Webster as our GM. Now I strongly question his decision making and motives.

    Neutral to Satisfied.

    Running back worries me. I would have liked for the team to do something, if they are going to cut CJ. Greene is effin' terrible.
