John Glennon takes stock of where the Titans are headed in 2012, and gives the upside and downside for most of the position groups on the roster.
The salary numbers on this site seem to be pretty accurate, and if that's the case then we're in a position to be a huge player in free agency this offseason. We had a pretty good amount of money left under the cap, and that's when we were spending $20.9 million on Hope, Ruud, Scott and Griffin. That's enough money to bring in a few heavy-hitters in free agency and still keep our own productive players.
MCMer asbestos_man took it to task in the Fanposts, but Jason Cole wrote a pretty absurd piece that's full of head-scratching assertions about the Jeff Fisher's time with the Titans. Probably the most outright falsehood is the idea that Adams just tossed Steve McNair because he drafted Vince Young. The reality is that Floyd Reese's contractual shell game meant McNair was due a $50 million bonus, and he (understandably) never seemed inclined to take the kind of pay cut he'd need to take to stay in Nashville. The overall idea that somehow Bud Adams, Floyd Reese and Mike Reinfeldt conspired to hold back the unbridled genius of Jeff Fisher is stupid on a level that's tough to properly express without profanity.
With Fisher headed to the Rams, Eagles fans are worried that Jim Washburn could be leaving to join him... which I expect to happen if the Eagles allow it to.
Solomon Wilcotts is a guy I agree with a lot, but he's got this one dead wrong.
