Titans Roster Moves Since 2015

The Tennesee Titans have signed ten free agents (six new to the team) yet based on the reaction of fans, it’s almost like they have done absolutely nothing during the 2017 free agency period. Most of the roster moves have not been headline catchers, but Jon Robinson is building a team devoid of weakness. Sure, a few additional playmakers are needed moving forward, but this team is much more competative from top to bottom than in year’s past.

 

Not sure whether you like or understand what the Titans are doing? Take a look back at the 2015 starting day roster and compare it to what the starters would look like today (pre-draft).

The starters listed only provide a small part of the picture as Robinson has done some of his best work in the gray – Finding vital role players that make the difference in the win column. Agree or not with the current batch of free agent signings, but this Titans team is much better off today than it was two short, pre J-Rob, seasons ago.
