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

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.
