The top target: Andy Levitre, Buffalo Bills. Levitre is considered far and away the best guard in free agency and the Titans will make an aggressive push for him, though they will have competition to land him.
The fallback plan: The draft. Louis Vasquez is the next best free agent guard, but the Titans would probably be better off delving into a deep draft to find an answer. Chance Warmack, anyone?
The top target: Ricky Jean-Francois. The big-bodied former LSU star is someone high on the Titans' radar, especially if Sen'Derrick Marks moves on as expected
The fallback plan: Chris Canty still hasn't found a landing spot and the Titans had him in for a visit recently.
The top targets: Martellus Bennett, New York Giants or Dustin Keller, New York Jets. The two free agent don't have Jared Cook's upside, but either would be a solid option for the offense. Keller is probably the better receiver of the two, but is a bit undersized.
The fallback plan: James Casey, Houston Texans; Delanie Walker, San Francisco 49ers. Both are in their late 20s and have been role players. Casey, however, is a bit reminiscent of Frank Wycheck.
The top target: Dwight Freeney, Indianapolis Colts, Michael Bennett, Tampa Bay Bucs and Osi Umenyiora. The Titans like all of these guys and would like to add one. There are two things standing in the way, however. They will have to commit a lot of money to another position, like guard or defensive tackle, and even veteran pass rushers are sometimes costly. The Titans will make a run, but might decide not to invest big money in a 30-something.
The fallback plan: The draft or a cap cut. John Abraham apparently has fallen of the radar for now, as the Titans have not made contact yet about a visit. Tennessee might have to go the draft, but there are not many surefire pass rushers there either. They might have to spend the 10th overall pick to get a true rusher this year, such as Barkevious Mingo or Dion Jordan. The best-case scenario might be for Elvis Dumervil to be released in Denver.
