The Tennessee Titans cleaned up their roster on Wednesday and fired several notable players. They are now back under the salary cap for the coming season.
The Titans have parted ways with offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, wide receiver Robert Woods, linebacker Zach Cunningham and kicker Randy Bullock. This saves them a total of around $37.7 million in cap space.
Of those, Lewan has been with the team the longest. He was the 11th pick overall in the 2014 draft and has played left tackle ever since. However, in the past three years he has been thrown back by injuries and only made two games in 2022 and only five in 2020. His firing alone brings the Titans $14.8 million in cap savings.
Woods ended up playing just one season in Tennessee and wasn’t a big factor after the Los Angeles Rams traded to Nashville. He has been in the NFL since 2013 and originally played for the Bills. This move saves $12 million in cap space.
Cunningham has played for the Titans since 2021 after a mid-season trade and missed 11 games last season through injury. He previously played in Houston. Bullock, in turn, played two years for the Titans, who were his sixth team since 2013.
After these layoffs, the Titans are about $12 million at Cap Space, ranked 12th in the NFL.
