Titans have spent $18,822,999 cap dollars
By Paul Kuharsky
GM Ruston Webster said Thursday evening that the Titans still had between $5 million and $7 million in salary-cap cushion.
So far they’ve signed six free agents, re-signed one of their own free agents (Darius Reynaud) and tendered restricted free agent center Fernando Velasco.
Those expenditures for guard Andy Levitre, defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill, tight end Delanie Walker, running back Shonn Greene, safety George Wilson, linebacker Moise Fokou, Reynaud and Velasco amount to $18,822,999. That factors in $1 million for Reynaud whose numbers I don’t have. Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean said his one-year deal is for around $1 million.
Tennessee got a bit of savings from cutting safety Jordan Babineaux. That saved them $1.8 million against the 2013 cap. [UPDATE: And I forgot Steve Hutchinson's retirement, which saved the team $3.75 million, a total that's more than I'd previously reported.]
On Feb. 21, the numbers I had access to said the Titans had $18.021 million in cap room, and that already included Wilson.
My math, which has proved unreliable several times today, says they should have about $6.448 million in room left right now.
