Titans Could Move On From OT Michael Oher Next Year?

Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com writes the Titans will need to make some changes to their offensive line during the offseason.

Kuharsky mentions that Tennessee could move on from OT Michael Oher next year without much of an issue.

Oher has been a big disappointment after he signed a four-year, $20 million contract that included $9.35 million guaranteed. He has base salaries of $4 million (2015) and $5 million (2016-2017) coming his way over the remainder of his contract.

However, the Titans could free up $2 million in 2015, $4 million in 2016 and another $5 million in 2017 by releasing Oher.

Oher, 28, currently grades out as the No. 71 overall offensive tackle out of 74 qualifying players, according to Pro Football Focus. Right now, Oher has allowed four sacks, three hits to the quarterback, and 19 quarterback hurries.

Given the cap savings and his play this season, it really wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see them cut Oher loose next year.
