Jason Cole reports that the Titans are panning to be “extraordinarily aggressive” in free agency this offseason.
Cole mentions that no matter what the Titans do at quarterback — keep Zach Mettenberger or draft either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota at No. 2 overall — they are going to be very cheap in terms of the quarterback position.
According to Cole, the goal for the Titans is to bring in impact players this offseason and in turn raise the viability of the franchise.
OverTheCap.com has Tennessee projected to have the fifth most cap space of any team in the league with over $46 million available to spend, so there’s no question they can get some players attention if this is really their goal.
