I don't think we'll see any more big name signings and I think they stay pat with Gabbert as backup QB.  Right now they are somewhere in the 25million (being a little generous) cap space remaining range and they would most likely still like to extend Byard.  

 

I can definitely see them bringing in some depth/bargain guys/ST players though and would be a little disappointed if they don't actually. 

I agree with you.  Except upgrading Gabbert.  I want to see MM play a full season, but it's doubtful.  We need a better backup and I think they will try to get one.

Robinson tried to sign Bouye, Butler got 5 years 61 mill, 30 guaranteed, around the same amount, same signing bonus and 4 mill more guaranteed. 

 

We simply do sign those people

But he didn’t sign Bouye, didn’t trade for Cooks, didn’t sign Gilmore. He doesn’t sign the top tier. He gets the second guy. Staffold will be the first top paid lineman in FA, which will be the first top paid position for Robinson. This is also the closest we’ve ever been to the cap. 

 

We we sign these people every year. We are also desperate. Yeah, neither is true or makes sense.

He was prepared to sign Suh to a large deal last offseason.

And he didn’t. I’m not sure why this is hard to understand. If he wanted Suh he would have continued to up the offer.

Was it?  He hasn't done a thing since getting the contract extension...

He got hurt.  Your comment is pretty dumb.

Delanie had 74 catches for 800 yards in 2017 and he was a MAJOR loss last year.  The guy is worth every dime we pay him to be a Titan until he retires.  One of the best players in the history of the organization.

That isn't a very smart comment either.  Obviously it was more appealing for Suh to play on the Rams next to Donald and a team with potential SB aspirations.  Oh, by the way they went to the SB.  Money wasn't the only factor.

Obviously, which is why we didn’t get him. You think he turns down an extra 4-5 million? Nope. Our offer was an extra million. Robinson doesn’t panic and he doesn’t overpay.

I think JR has done a good job with the roster, but this all comes down to QB.  If MM turns the corner this year, all these moves will look brilliant because the team will be winning and winning a lot.  If not, then draft picks and FA pickups alike look like mediocre/bad moves.  The team is plenty good enough to win with good QB play.  Everyone knows this, and it's why all threads eventually become MM threads.

From my perspective, there's really not any heat on JR.  If MM turns into a healthy franchise QB, then we win now and everyone is happy.  If not, then JR gets to pick his QB and he only gets on the hot seat if his chosen QB fails.

Nice response. I hope you're right. I really do.

 

A combined cap hit (against) of $16,641,583.00 for free agents signed - with one of them at 37 years of age - isn't a good continued signed of evolution into the better. Saffold was an obvious and solid enough decent signing, but when Robinson started (out-of-the-gate) back in 2016, his move to bring in Murray culminated into the turn-around-franchise-all-time for our Titans. Moves like that since are few and far in between. Mariota and this offense NEEEEEDDDSSS a top flight wide receiver threat beyond the word "desperately" and Corey Davis unfortunately hasn't been the answer. 

 

Players like Zach Brown, Jared Cook and even Jason McCourty are players that should've never left and still better options than the players signed and currently on the roster. The worse move on behalf of Jon Robinson................... The TERRIBLY RIDICULOUS signing of Malcom Butler with a cap hit (against) of $13,100,00.00 and paying this overrated corner $10 M per year on average.

2019 Cap Hits per Sportrac: 

 

Saffold: 6.4M

Humphries: 5M

Wake: 5.3M

 

Curious what the number is for Vaccaro. 

 

If we tender Tye Smith and re-sign Stocker, we'd be sitting at approximately 16M in cap space, assuming Vaccaro year 1 is around 4M. With a rookie pool of about 6M, that's around 10M in space left I think. 

 

Probably don't want to spend too much more. Maybe a smaller deal here or there for a Danny Shelton or whoever. Or signing a ST safety or linebacker. 

 

We have a hole at backup safety imo. Cruikshank can't be trusted to step in when someone goes down. 

 

I'll be curious to see if they bring back Compton, who is like an extra coach in the room and plays ST

Ross Tucker on his podcast today lumped Robinson in with GMs who had pressure and said he’s loading up before Mariota’s status is unknown after this season. 

 

Hes stealing from me

You clearly don't know anything if you are pounding the table for Jared Cook and Zach Brown.

You gotta be kidding me, genius... really??? Even though it was more significant in reference to analogizing in retrospect vs current players cap estimate and production overall, please... Enlighten me to the fact (at the very least) that both Jared Cook and Zach Brown since leaving Nashville have been so awful to the point of stating your emphasis on knowing nothing vs this franchise overall since. 

 

Please, sir. Teach me obiwan.

 

Clearly - (in your world of expertise), the Titans front office and coaching staff have won so many games together and been to the playoffs for so many years consecutively since (both) Cook and Brown have been in the league. Not to pound the table or anything, you know... Just saying.
