Mike Herndon: How Ran Carthon can create Titans' cap space

By MIKE HERNDON, columnist

NASHVILLE. Tenn. -- According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Titans currently have $7,152,103 in cap space officially according to the NFL’s accounting after contracts for the new free agent additions announced became official – Andre Dillard, Azeez Al-Shaair, Sean Murphy-Bunting, Daniel Brunskill, Arden Key, and Luke Gifford.

Signing their 2023 NFL Draft class will cost approximately $6.58 million against the cap according to Spotrac.com and Tennessee will certainly be keeping a few million (probably somewhere close to $10 million based on previous years) as operating cash to allow them to sign and/or trade for players throughout the 2023 season.

If they do intend to continue making additions – which seems very likely based on the state of the roster today – the amount of space they have to open up will obviously increase.
