Who Are the Best Available NFL Free Agents Remaining for the Tennessee Titans?

The Tennessee Titans have position needs at wide receiver and offensive tackle. Calvin Ridley, Marquise Brown, Tyron Smith, and Danielle Hunter are some of the prominent free agents available.

NASHVILLE — Day 1 of NFL free agency was a whirlwind that included the Tennessee Titans signing four players, losing four, and all but saying goodbye to legendary running back Derrick Henry. 

The Titans agreed to terms with running back Tony Pollard, center Lloyd Cushenberry, cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, and linebacker Kenneth Murray, who announced his two-year, $18 million dollar deal via Instagram.

The Titans said goodbye to center Aaron Brewer (Miami Dolphins), cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting (Arizona Cardinals), and defensive end Denico Autry and linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair (both Houston Texans).

Signing Pollard signals the Titans are moving on from Henry, who's still on the board as of this writing.  

Teams started talks with free agents on Monday and can sign them on Wednesday, March 13, which marks the start of the league calendar year.

The two-day negotiation period applies only to potential unrestricted free agents and not to players who already received or may receive a required tender for the 2024 league year. 

The Titans still have needs at several positions, including wide receiver, offensive tackle, and edge defender. Let's take a look at who's still out there.
