Last week, I went over the Tennessee Titans' salary cap information, focusing on upcoming free agents, possible roster cuts and how the team's salary cap space should be spent. In this article, I will break down how the Titans' salary cap spending is spread over the roster position-by-position.
With Ken Whisenhunt being brought on as the team's new head coach, some inherent changes to the team's final roster composition are inevitable. I will discuss the latter changes as they arrive. One of the reasons Whisenhunt chose the Titans over his widely expected next coaching destination in Detroit is due to each team's roster composition.
Having Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush and Ndamukong Suh on the roster may seem like a great corp of talent to have as a new head coach, but they take up $55,790,500 of cap space or more than 43 percent.
Without making some roster cuts, the Titans will not be able to make many changes to the current roster. The team have a large portion of the roster becoming free agents and very little space to re-sign them.
