Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – With his quarterback in place and five Pro Bowl selections due to return in 2017, among several more core players, Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson can add more through free agency and the 2017 NFL Draft.

The unrestricted free agent signing period is scheduled to begin at the start of the new league year on March 9th, when 2016 contracts expire. Players not under contract for 2017 are free to sign with another club at that point. The Titans are projected to be comfortably below the NFL’s 2017 salary cap, which will exceed its 2016 number of $155 million.
