The club won the AFC South this past season for the first time since 2008.
It was a season that started out with five consecutive wins. But you could tell early on that the Tennessee Titans were a flawed football team – most notably on the defensive side of the ball.
When it was all said and done, Mike Vrabel’s club did just enough to win the AFC South and capture a division title for the first time since 2008. But unlike their 2019 playoff run, it was one and done for this club as the Baltimore Ravens went to Nashville and got playoff revenge in the AFC wild card round.
Now the club looks to fix what ailed it for the most part. The Titans scored 491 points and but allowed a whopping 439 points, the most by any of the 14 playoff teams. Hence the emphasis here is on the defensive side of the ball, where the team has its share of potential free agents (via Spotrac) that might need to be replaced. But the club doesn’t have a lot of salary cap room at the moment, so…
5. T Cameron Fleming (New York Giants)
Taylor Lewan is one of the best left tackles in the league. A three-time Pro Bowler and the 11th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, he’s been an emotional leader for this franchise. But six games in 2020, he suffered a knee injury that cost him the remainder of the season.
Fleming appears to be on the mend (via Erik Bacharach of the Nashville Tennessean) and should be ready sooner than later. But it wouldn’t hurt if the Titans signed a little veteran insurance considering backups Ty Sambrailo and Marshall Newhouse are slated for free agency.
After stints with the Patriots and Cowboys, seven-year tackle Cameron Fleming was a 16-game starter with the New York Giants in 2020. He could add proven depth as well as serve as a solid insurance policy.
