    The Titans are not in the best spot cap wise. In terms of effective cap space the Titans an estimated $3.6m in the hole. that is with key people needing to be re-signed at several positions.

    Some monies can be pushed to 2022 to save 21 space but 22 is not looking great either. In 22 the Titans will have an estimated $51.6 million in space, which sounds like a lot but that puts them in the bottom quarter of the league. And, there will be several key positions to be re-signed.

    Let's look at what can be cut:

    Malcolm Butler (most targeted DB in the league) -- net $12.6m with $2m in dead space
    Roget Saffold (We can always get a guard in the first round) - net $10.5 with $2.3m in dead space
    Adam "My Humps" Humphrey (Better to keep Davis) -- net $8.7m with $2.5m in dead space

    Some others include Kenny Vaccaro, who could be cut if Hooker can be a viable replacement. Kelly would be a nice cut if we had someone who can take over at RT. But, unless they draft an RT in the first round we are best to stick with Kelly.

    We just drafted a RT in the 1st! I think Wilson gets until TC to shape up....therefore we keep Kelly....Vaccaro can go, I do like Butler, would he restructure?

    We did? Nah, that can't be right. Not with all the injuries we had at OT this year. If we had taken an RT in the first they would have moved Kelly to LT and played him at some point.

    Was cap hit that hard due to covid? Or did the clowney Beasley mess put them behind? I could’ve sworn they were in great shape before signing clowney.

    A lot of column A, a little from column B.

    It was always going to be tight this offseason, Covid made it worse.

    It looks like we have 6 mill according to over the cap, which you linked. And there is a chance the cap could be as high a 195, which would give us 20 mill more. I think we definitely see some restructuring. We need to fill close to 30 spots on the roster.
