Free agency is gearing up in the National Football League. Some teams are fighting to keep key players and stay under the salary cap. The Tennessee Titans are under the 2012 salary cap by about $30 million.
This certainly offers new Titans General Manager Ruston Webster and Head Coach Mike Munchak enough room to not only keep some key players that are set to become free agents very soon, but to also sign some key free-agent acquisitions and have substantial cap room left to sign their 2012 draft picks.
In this first of a two-part series, we will cover the free agency acquisitions the Titans will need to make, and give insight into why—including the reasoning of players they could potentially lose in free agency to other teams.
In our second installment, we will cover the gaps the Titans will need to fill after free agency via the 2012 draft, including where they need to add depth to become playoff contenders in 2012.
