The Titans will retain the right to match any offer sheet Tart or Brewer signs. If the Titans were to decide against matching the offer, they’d receive a second-round selection in exchange for Brewer or Tart. If signed, the second-round tender would pay Tart and/or Brewer $4.304 million in 2023.
Brewer appears to be in the organization’s offensive line plans, either as their center or left guard. Brewer could replace Ben Jones at center. Brewer has long been viewed as an ideal center do to his undersized nature. New additions Daniel Brunskill and Andre Dillard are expected to start at right guard and left tackle respectively.
An undrafted free agent out of Michigan State with less than three accrued seasons, Jones is eligible for a one-year contract. Jones played out the 2022 campaign on an expiring contract. Jones is expected to compete for a 53-man roster spot throughout training camp.
