"When the evil Shredder attacks,
These turtle boys don't cut him no slack!..."
The Titans hit Free Agency with the force of a thousand suns yesterday! Wait...no they didn't. It's all good though. STOP PANICKING! Thirty two teams compete against each other to get these players that hit the open market, and several teams overpaid for some of those players yesterday. (That Brock contract. Lol wat?!). The Titans did make a few moves yesterday though. First of which was solidifying the trade for DeMarco Murray. The question on everyone's mind was, "What did the the Titans trade to acquire Murray?" All they did was swap fourth round picks with the Eagles. That was all. Daggum.
New Titans RB DeMarco Murray is hella excited to play for the Titans. He is 100 percent motivated. He is ready and looks forward to competing and running the way he knows he can. Murray is also ready to take some of the pressure off of Mariota. He believes he and Marcus can have a lot of fun, and I look forward to seeing that fun unfold.

Another move the Titans made: signing Matt Cassel to a one year deal. Cassel has been in the league for 12 years and has played for the Patriots, Chiefs, Vikings, and Cowboys. He is expected to come in and compete against Mett. It's not a sexy signing by any means, but at least he's won a game...

News broke around the time I was writing this, and no article has really been posted about it (unless you want to count this one by Jason Wolf), but it is being reported the Titans are signing Rishard Matthews:
The Titans have agreed to terms with receiver Rishard Matthews on a three-year deal. https://t.co/bsa68waG6n— Paul Kuharsky (@PaulKuharskyNFL) March 10, 2016
