NASHVILLE, Tenn. – We don’t have a full picture of how the Titans’ salary cap expenditures for 2021 will look, but we have a pretty good sense at this point.

Maybe something happens to a big-dollar guy between now and opening day, but it’s not real likely. Maybe they still add someone costly.

Right now, only the most expensive 51 players count against the cap.


I found this graphic from former Jets GM and Dolphins president Mike Tannenbaum interesting. Tannenbaum is now part of The 33rd Team, a collective of former coaches and GMs who analyze the NFL.

This gives us a sense of how recent Super-Bowl participants have allocated cap resources by position as opposed to the league average.

The chart was part of a bigger story that looked into salary cap allocations.

I plugged the Titans’ current numbers into the same groupings to see how they measured against this.
