Both players have been rumored to be on the chopping block this offseason, but it sounds like the Titans would prefer to hang to them rather than look for cheaper replacements.
Griffin, 29, has undergone multiple procedures this offseason and will make $6.2 million for the 2014 season. He’ll be entering the third year of a five-year, $35 million contract that he signed with the Titans back in 2012. The Titans could save $2.6 million by releasing him outright.
Washington, 30, caught 58 passes for 919 yards and three touchdowns last season. The Titans stand to gain $4.8 million by releasing him, but there is a chance that he could agree to a pay cut at some point, depending on whether or not the Titans need the additional cap space.
