Titans' overpaid/underpaid players?

7/1/2014

ESPN Insiders have created lists of the top 10 overpaidInsider and top 10 underpaidInsider players in the NFL.

The Tennessee Titans don't have a player on either list, and that's a good thing both ways.

Looking at the cash values of contracts in 2014, only two look really out of whack.

Safety Michael Griffin can be a good player, but he's not worth $6.2 million this year. (And he knows I don't believe he is, though I commend him for having landed said deal.)

Right tackle Michael Oher will have to show he's worth close to $6 million, and he may play in a backup role this season, which would make that impossible to do.

Others with numbers worth a mention: cornerback Jason McCourty and left guard Andy Levitre ($6.5 million), Nate Washington ($4.8 million), linebacker Wesley Woodyard ($4.75 million), defensive lineman Sammie Hill ($3.4 million) and running back Shonn Greene ($2.4 million).

On the other end of the spectrum...

Defensive lineman Jurrell Casey and receiver Kendall Wright are the answer to a lot of questions:

  • Who are the best players on each side of the ball?

  • Who are the Titans' primary building blocks?

  • Who are the most underpaid players on the Titans?

Casey's due $1.431 million in the final year of his rookie deal and is the top priority for a contract extension.

Wright is due $1.137 million.
