Free agency officially opens at 3 PM central this afternoon. The Titans have already made a couple of really big moves with the trade for DeMarco Murray and the deal with Ben Jones. Those two things will become official this afternoon. Hopefully Jon Robinson has more in store for us this afternoon.
We will have all of the Titans related free agency news at MCM throughout the day. There will be a new thread posted for each signing or any relevant news that drops.
This thread will act as a "live blog" of sorts, with brief but important updates about the latest rumors, signings, or trades involving the Titans or other NFL teams. You should also use the comments section as your free agency open thread! (Newest updates will be at the top of the live blog below).
The Titans still need to add a free safety, another offensive lineman, a nose tackle, and another wide receiver wouldn't hurt. Robinson has shown so far that he isn't afraid to make big moves. Hopefully there is a Tashaun Gipson or Damon Harrison signing in the near future.

The Dolphins have pulled the transition tag from Olivier Vernon. This will allow the Dolphins to receive a compensatory pick if he signs with another team. The Titans have been rumored to be interested.
