Btw, that’s the last viable starting 5 tech option on the market other than Jernigan who is a tweener and a JAG. I guess Margus Hunt as well.

 

However, there are some good options at nose tackle:

 

Snacks Harrison

Brandon Mebane 

Domata Peko

Marcell Dareus

John Jenkins 

 

Mike Daniels is more of a 3 tech, and Covington is more of a rotational player at 5 technique. Damion Square is another rotational end that the Titans visited with last year and didn’t sign.

Gotta be honest...not a fan of the offseason plan so far. Not saying “the sky is falling” by any means but we have several big concerns and few draft picks to fill them with. 

 

I like that JRob has managed to keep the continuity of the offensive side of the ball, the entire starting 11 will likely come from guys who were on the roster last season, that is going to be a massive bonus with the offseason program basically wiped out due to the corona virus.

 

Commenting on the roster as it is currently structured there is no doubt as we sit here right now it is weaker than the team that walked off Arrowhead after losing the AFCCG, if the goal was to improve the roster to beat the Chiefs this year I just don't think that has happened so far this offseason.

 

Vrabel/JRob are reportedly having a conference call with the local media during next week sometime it will be interesting to see JRob's view on how things have gone since FA has opened.

 

As previously mentioned I believe to some extent a decision was made to be conservative early in free agency to protect that 3rd round comp pick for losing Conklin, I expect some FA signings post the draft, the issue is other than Clowney is there really anyone left on the market that could make a significant difference to this team immediately.

Only guys left are JAGs other than Clowney and Golden.

 

And Harrison who is the best run down nose in the league in my book, but seems

to be declining with age.

I just don't see them signing Golden, more likely that Correa returns than signing Golden.

 

Clowney is the big mystery other than that report out of the Seattle Times there has been absolutely nothing else reputable linking him to the Titans.

I almost bet that his agents have been using the Titans “interest” to leverage the Seahawks.

Of course.  He wants to be in Seattle and Seattle wants him. They are letting him see his value then will sign him to a probable short term deal.

He'll say that this part of free agency is effectively over and they are going into draft mode.

Yeah I could see new head coaches and rookie QBs really struggling this year with how limited all the offseason stuff is going to be.

Same. 

 

As I said earlier, they’re gonna roll into the draft needing a starter at CB, DL, RT and a major need at RB. 

 

One of these is going to need to be filled by a free agent after the draft I’m guessing. 

 

Not sure about needing a starter at corner.  Jackson/Butler start outside and I think Robinson drafted Hooker last year to be the slot corner this year.   Wasn't he the #1 rated slot corner in college or something like that?  I would imagine he gets every opportunity to take that job.  Certainly need depth though.

My concern is that he would have the same weakness against speed guys that Ryan had.
 

But yes, he was a great slot defender at Iowa. And he would still be way cheaper than Ryan. And they could still draft a corner.

I would've liked to have been more aggressive in FA but the reality is most teams that improve a lot do it thru rookies & 2nd & 3rd year guys. Hooker was mentioned & is a great example. I think he's going to be a very good slot corner & a big upgrade over Ryan, who was abused last year. While everybody has moved on from Corey Davis I still think he can be a big time WR, especially if he really dealt with turf toe. He apparently was uncoverable in camp last year. Turf toe is brutal. Jonnu produced while only getting 8 months to recover from an ACL. Same with Simmons. Evans was a monster in the playoffs. Hump & Butler were both hurt. Some of these guys bouncing back or improving is where we get better.

 

Looking back we should've kept Conklin with all thus space but Kelly is fine. If Tannehill plays to his contest this team will be right in the mix. It's a very good roster.

We signed Beasley and apparently are still in the running for Clowney.  The main question is where we go with the money if we don't sign Clowney.  Maybe finish Henry's deal and sign back Ryan?   Still need a 2nd RB and a 5 tech DL.  We can fill most holes in the draft but it might be ncie to have some solid vets as well.  I'd get Ryan back on a 1 or 2 year deal for his leadership but we do need one more quality CB with some speed.
