    No, but there is a difference in 6 mil and 20 mil. You can’t really estimate from guesses. Until that number is actually set, all speculation is meaningless. It will be a challenge regardless and I don’t see how we avoid restructuring some deals and losing some guys we want to keep. Most teams will be in the same boat though.

    When good CBs are “targeted” it usually means they are covering the better receivers and QBs are going to look for the better receivers.

    Top CBs get top WR matchups

    Its a bad stat to look at because it sounds terrible

    JRob can't just look at a rusty Adoree who might be far from 100%. Anyway, his contract is guaranteed. No savings to release him.

    Same for Butler. He had a solid season but how about his first with the Titans? Very mediocre and many here questioned the signing. He was playing much better last year before the injury but nothing like this season.

    Point being, I think you have to look at the big picture. +$10.2M to the cap is quite a savings unless the Titans think they'll get the same production next season they did this year from him.

    I agree

    Just responding to the Butler comments, I like Butler, hope he restructures, like it or not he was one of our better CBs this year.

    Look, gotta get money somewhere. If we do not cut any of these guys then we will not be able to re-sign most key FA, much less sign an outside FA. Which means the team will be worse next year.

    And this is why the Titans need to act now

    Either way, we are not going to be in a good spot. There were always going to be tough decisions to make this offseason.

    Also, the Colts and Jags are flush with cap space.

    Plenty of ways to clear money without cutting your best players.

    Cap space doesn’t equal wins. Relax.

    It’s some amazing to me that people on this board want us to sign every FA and get mad when we have leftover cap space and then they want to turn around and cut everyone for more cap space.

    Savings would only be $3.5m, with an $11.5m hit to the cap.

    You can do a June first cut to push most of that to next year, but as it is they are going to have to push a lot to next year

    Nowhere did I say I want to "Sign every single FA"

    I do though want to re-sign a lot of our free agents. Which include Cory Davis, Jayon Brown, Jonnu Smith.

    Butler our best player? LOL, being the best defender on the Titans is like being the smartest kid with Down syndrome. He is badly overpaid and that money can be better used elsewhere. Cut him, unless he takes a big pay cut.

    Like it or not, the cap is a thing. Successful teams know to cut overpaid players.
