Titans General Manager Ruston Webster said top priorities include improving offensive line and defensive line


Quote:
@jwyattsports
Webster said he wants to keep tight end Jared Cook and expects him to be with team in 2013


Quote:
@jwyattsports
Webster said he expects Jake Locker to be ready for offseason workouts in June. Recovering well from shoulder injury, he said


Quote:
@jwyattsports
Adding a second running back to help Chris Johnson also a key, Webster said


Quote:
@jwyattsports
Webster said the Titans want returner Darius Reynaud back in 2013


Quote:
@jwyattsports
Webster said Titans won't have to cut anyone for cap reasons but could make moves based on additions in free agency and draft


Quote:
@jwyattsports
Webster said the Titans also want Bironas back and plan to meet with his reps at combine


Quote:
@TitanInsider247
Munchak says #Titans should be active early in few agency.


Quote:
@TitanInsider247
Munchak says #Titans will have a fullback on the roster even though he may play only a handful of snaps.


Quote:
@TitanInsider247 Mike Munchak says Chance Warmack can be a special guard in the NFL.


Quote:
@TitanInsider247 Munchak says WR not a big need area but changes still possible at the position if right player is there


Quote:
@jwyattsports Munchak said Cook, Marks and Bironas are all big priorities. Said they might want to test free agency, however




Quote:
@TitanInsider247 Munchak stated again that Jerry Gray will call defensive plays but Gregg Williams will have a role and be a resource.
Until he is fired. Twisted Evil

GM Ruston Webster said he would like to acquire a change-of-pace back.
The Titans don't appear interested in re-signing free agent Javon Ringer, who has missed 27 games due to injury over the last four seasons. Perhaps they'll show some interest in speedy draft prospects such as Clemson's Andre Ellington or North Carolina's Giovani Bernard. Chris Johnson has been remarkably durable, but he does have 1,693 touches on his tires since 2008.

The #Titans plan to make a tender offer to offensive lineman Fernando Velasco, a restricted free agent

Given we have so much money in Griffin, we may just take the route of making the D around him great so we can cover up his mistakes.

Kind of an [inappropriate/removed]-backwards way of doing things, but whatever.

I think the old saying goes, "you can't put lipstick on a pig". Well the Titan's pig wears dreads and hails from Austin, Texas. Brick wall

I'm glad the front office is getting serious about addressing the weak trenches. Kam Wimbley isn't bad. The young DTs really dropped off this year and I think they would remiss not to consider spending a high draft pick on DT if there is an elite prospect available. I also like the talk about Chance Warmack. The Titans line is broken. It must be improved.

I think big money at an OG early. They will probably camp out at Levitrie or Vasquez's home so they can talk to him at midnight...lol Shoot send Bruce one place and Munchak the other get both...lol

Then draft a Center/OG in the 2nd/3rd.

If a saftey makes it to FA, I think they will seek them out also. Delmas is going to be a FA, but his medical is crucial. Moore might make it if they tag Baker, but his medical is an issue too.

I'm excited to see who they deem to be the priority. They are going to spend, just on who and what spot?

I seriously doubt big spending money will be on a guard. They've already spent money on Hutch. Why spend money two years in a row when it didn't work out before? This offensive line needs a young stud blocker. Too many vets already.

Experience is more crucial in the secondary. Young corners all over the place means the Titans should add experience over the top.

The Nashville Tennessean suggests the Titans could hit a "big snag" in contract talks with free agent Jared Cook over whether he should be classified as a tight end or wide receiver.
Cook played over 60 percent of his snaps as a slot receiver/wideout in 2012, and this could become contentious if the Titans try slapping Cook with the tight end franchise tag. The franchise number for receivers is roughly $10.5 million. The tight end franchise number is just under $6 million. Per beat writer Jim Wyatt, Cook and the Titans are "nowhere close" to a long-term agreement.

I disagree. A young vet is avaiable why not get one? Levitre or Vasquez both at their prime (26 and 25). They have shown to want experience on the line. I think what they paid Hutchinson has nothing to do with their plans. If they want they can cut him and be ok, from my understanding. But one of those guys paid and drafting one in the 2nd or 3rd gives them youth and experience....case solved.

^Agreed. No sense in spending a first round pick on one with the depth available in free agency and the draft. Even outside of Vasquez and Levitre there are quality players.

Hutchinson should be dropped.

That is an interesting point. I never thought of that. That could seriously throw a wrench in the team's plans. In no way is Jared Cook worth 10.5 a year.

He isn't worth 6 either.

No idea why we want to keep such a bum.

So who decides what position he is? The league?
