Today, March 16th is the start of the 2022 League Year for the NFL. At 3:00 pm CST the Titans and every other team will be able to start announcing free agent signings. I’d imagine a surprise signing or two from the Titans as they have done a decent job in years past at keeping signings under wraps until the league year commenced. There are a multitude of WRs available that make a lot of sense for the Titans and I suspect they get a deal done with at least one as well as at least one more TE. I can’t imagine more than one significant draftee at each spot, meaning there is work to be done in FA.
As an aside, the AFC West is going to be fun to watch as an outsider, and I’m glad the Titans don’t have to play every team in that division twice a year. Ok, maybe I’d take the Raiders twice. Still, no team is a pushover and the QB play ranges from solid to sublime.
Jackrabbit Jenkins has been released a year after signing with the Titans. He was a solid player for Tennessee despite some of the fan backlash he got. Going into 2022, the Titans’ top corners are already in place with Fulton, Farley, and Molden. Cutting Jenkins always made sense as it saved nearly $7M against the cap and allows you to get younger and cheaper at the position.
The Panthers signed D’Onta Foreman to a $2M deal and Titans fans lost their minds. Relax, people. Foreman was a nice player, but you can get backup running backs elsewhere. Anywhere, actually. I’m happy that Foreman got paid, he deserves it. The Titans didn’t need to be the ones paying it. Adding a backup to Henry with some legitimate pass catching ability would be nice, like the role the Titans had planned for Darrynton Evans.
