    We need the money and you can always get Guards. Money is better spent where it is not so easy to get a good player in FA or with a low first round pick.

    And there is a reason Butler was the most targeted DB in the NFL. QBs loved to pick on him, and you think he is worth all that money?

    We actually don’t know where they are cap wise. No sense getting too tense until the owners decide that number.

    Take a look at the "Effective cap space" column :(

    Marlon Humphrey was the 2nd most targeted CB..I found that surprising

    That is why it is an estimated number. We do have a pretty good idea. And, regardless of what the cap number is, we will have to make a lot of adjustments to re-sign key FA and improve the team.

    It is not like we are magically going to end up with a ton of cap space.

    Look at who is opposite Humphrey.

    Meanwhile, Butler had trash opposite him and opposing QBs still targeted him. What does that tell us?

    Again since Adoree has been back, has he made a play? He has looked worse than the random DB's we were throwing out there in his place!

    Sunday all he had to do was turn around and play the ball and he either saves a TD or could have made the INT. Maybe he never got healthy because he sure did not look as fast to me.

    “You can always get guards”. Oh you mean like Chance Warmack?

    You realize most targeted and snaps played is a direct correlation. Marlon Humohreys was the 2nd most targeted and he just signed a massive deal.

    I've not crunched the numbers but I anticipate Hump, Vaccaro, Saffold and Butler are possibly released. Jonnu, Jones, Jayon and Davis will be allowed to enter free agency but the Titans might have a shot to get one or more back on cap-friendly deals.

    Butler had a solid season but I think they'll want to move Fulton outside and try and keep King in the slot if they can afford him. Maybe Butler would restructure and allow the Titans to use Fulton in the slot a season. They'll sign Sambrailo for depth and there are quite a few other guys set to become UFAs the Titans should be able to keep as depth. Keeping Firkser as a RFA is a no-brainer.

    But that leaves major holes at WR, G, TE, SS, DL and CB.

    I know JRob has some tough choices to make. The window of having Henry in his prime, Brown cheap and Tanny still playing at a high level might be only another two seasons. After that, Brown will take a massive contract (or be franchised) to keep which means JRob can't be whiffing on the draft and free agency like he did this year because the Titans may not have the option to afford high-dollar free agents.

    This is all considering the cap doesn't go down or do we already know by how much if it is?
