Tennessee Titans 2020 Free Agent Targets:

Tennessee Titans Needs:

 

Kicker

Reason: The Tennessee Titans just released their long time kicker Ryan Succop after a shaky performance last season.

 

Right Tackle

Reason: The Titans will not have enough cap space this season to bring back Jack Conklin who has been a very solid starter for them the past 4 seasons. So this leaves them with a big hole at Tackle that they can either fill in free agency or the Draft.

 

Tight End

Reason: Most teams would be fine with Jonu Smith and Anthon firsker as their one and two tight ends. Tennessee runs a lot of 2 Tight End personnel and with Delanie Walker being released they are in need of a reliable Tight End to fill the TE1/TE2 position.

 

A Fast Pass Catching Running Back

Reason: Dion Lewis is out, saving the team 4 million in cap space. With Lewis gone they are in desperate need of a backup for Derrick Henry who can step in on 3rd downs and pass-catching situations.

 

Pass Rushing Outside Linebacker/EDGE

Reason: With the likelihood of Kamalei Correa leaving in Free Agency and the Release of Cam Wake, the Titans are in need of some edge-rushers this offseason.

 

Backup Middle Linebacker

Reason: With Darren Bates and Wesly Woodyard leaving in Free Agency the Titans are sure to be looking around for a great role-playing Linebacker to bring in the offseason.

 

 

Free Agent Targets:

Kicker:

Dan Bailey – Bailey was widely regarded as the leagues’ best kicker from 2012-2015 kicking an astonishing 91.7% of his field-goal attempts and making 100% of his extra-point attempts. But after having a down year in 2017 the Cowboys released Bailey and he was soon picked up by the Minnesota Vikings where he continued to struggle up until last year. In 2019 Bailey looked like his old self again making 93.1% of his field-goal attempts. If the Titans can manage to snag Bailey for a decent price he would be an amazing pickup.

Age: 32                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 2 Million Dollars Per Season

 

Kai Forbath – Forbath has been a solid kicker in his 8 year NFL career. Playing for seven teams in eight seasons he has made over 86% of his field-goal attempts and 93.8% of his extra-point attempts.  Last season was his best performance so far hitting 10 for 10 in field-goal attempts and making 100% of his extra points for the Dallas Cowboys.

Age: 32                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 1.2 Million Dollars Per Season

 

Greg Zuerlein –  Zuerlein has perhaps the strongest leg in the NFL, hitting 50 plus yard field goals routinely. He does have some accuracy problems hitting only 82% of his field-goal attempts throughout his 8 year NFL career. On the other hand “Greg the Leg” is as about as consistent as it gets with extra points knocking through an impressive 97.8% in his career.

Age: 32                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 2.2 Million Dollars Per Season

He is Two Time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots and started in 28 games for them between the 2015-2018 seasons.  He signed a contract with the Bills in 2019 but got injured in training camp and was put on IR ending his season.

T. J. Clemmings – Clemmings is a very versatile Lineman, playing multiple positions along the offensive line.

Age: 28                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 1 Million Dollars Per Season

 

Demar Dotson – Dotson is a very consistent Tackle. Five out of the past six years he has had over a 70.0 PFF rating and hasn’t given up over 6 sacks in any season played. Dotson has started 105 games for the Buccaneers in his 11 year NFL career.

Age: 34                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 3 Million Dollars Per Season

 

Marcus Gilbert –  Gilbert has had over a 75 PFF Rating four out of the last five years. Gilbert was the definition of durable for the Pittsburgh Steelers for 2011-2018 Starting 87 Games out of 88. Gilbert was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in 2019 and was immediately placed on IR and didn’t play for them all season.

Age: 32                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 4 Million Dollars Per Year

Age: 29                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 4-7 Million Dollars Per Year

 

Jason Witten – Witten is the definition of dependable, Witten has a 75% catch percentage over his 13-year NFL career. Is an eleven-time Pro Bowl selection and a two-time First-team All-Pro and won the Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 2012. He would be a great veteran presence in the offensive huddle this season and would bring an extra sense of security for Ryan Tannehill.

Age: 37                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 2.5 Million Dollars Per Year

Ty Montgomery – Montgomery is a converted Wide Receiver and is a very good role playing Running Back. Over his 5 year career Montgomery has over 900 yards receiving and averages over 8 yards per catch. Won the “Jet Award” in 2013 which is awarded to the top return specialist in College football.

Age: 27                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 1 Million Dollars Per Year                                                                    40 Yard Dash: 4.55

 

C.J. Prosise – Prosise is a Big, fast, pass-catching running back who would be a perfect third-down back for the Tennessee Titans.

He is a talented pass catcher and is averaging over 10 yards per catch in his NFL career.

Age: 31                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 1.2 Million Dollars Per Year

______________________________________

Pass Rushing Outside Linebacker/ Edge Rusher:

Jadeveon Clowney – Clowney is a beast, he is a Top 5 edge rusher in the NFL and is going to be a tough signing for the Titans. Clowney has 32 sacks and 71 tackles for loss in his 6 year NFL career. Clowney would be able to slide right into the OLB/EDGE role for the Titans and make a huge impact.

Age: 27                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 17 Million Per Year

 

Vic Beasley Jr. – Beasley is a sack master, he led the league in sacks with 15.5 in 2016 and has amassed 37.5 sacks in his 5 year NFL career. Beasley is a turnover machine forcing 11 fumbles and snagging and interceptions as well in his career so far. He would be a perfect fit for the Titans and would be a whole lot cheaper than Clowney.

Age: 27                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 6-9 Million Dollars Per Year

 

Bud Dupree – Dupree burst onto the scene last year recording 11.5 sacks  16 tackles for loss and 4 forced fumbles. Dupree has recorded over 4 sacks every season he has played and has continued to improve every season. Dupree would be a decent fallback option if the Titans cant land a “Big Name” pass rusher.

Age: 27                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 5-8 Million Dollars

______________________________________

Backup Middle Linebacker:

Sean Lee – Lee would be a perfect fit for this Titans team. He would bring a veteran presence in a young linebacking core. Lee is one of the most solid and smartest linebackers in the last decade and could make a huge impact if used correctly. Lee has 14 interceptions, 60 tackles for loss, and 30 passes defended in his 9 year NFL career.

Age: 33                                                                                                                                                Estimated Salary: 2.5 Million Dollars Per Year

 

Thomas Davis – Davis is savy veteran who would bring a sense of toughness to this linebacking core. He is a smart older player who would be a great mentor to our younger linebackers. Davis has 13 interceptions, 90 tackles for loss, 54 passes defended in his 14 year NFL career.

Age: 36                                                                                                                                              Estimated Salary: 1.2 Million Dollars Per Year

Indoor Football General Manager Plan:

Player Acquisition:

Every team that has succeeded in the Arena football league has one thing in common, a great Quarterback. Most of these Quarterbacks have three things in Common, Most lead the league in yards per completion, Most are Dual Threat, and most championship winning Arena League Quarterbacks have a High QB efficiency rating.

 

The other component to a great Arena team is your passing Defense. Most every team that has succeeded in the Arena league has a top 3 passing defense in the league. It’s a perfect benchmark for understanding how good an opposing team is because in most cases the stat “Opponents Passing Yards per Game” matches up precisely with league standings. If you give up the most passing yards per game you are most likely bottom of the standings. The same cant be said for rushing yards per game, you can be one of the worst teams in the league in terms of stopping the run but still be top of the table in terms of overall standings in the league. The way you Win on defense in Indoor football is you disrupt the passing game with pass rushers and make sure you have pure cover corners and  Safeties to clamp up downfield.  So what this tells me is when teams are signing/scouting Defensive linemen and linebackers they should not be worried about “Run Stoppers” or a prototype Nose Tackle or a Run Stopping Defensive Tackle, the only thing coaches and General Managers need to be asking is “Does this player have the potential to get the quarterback on an every-down basis?”.
