The Tennessee Titans went on a terrific run down the stretch of last season, even knocking off the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens in the NFL Playoffs. The Titans look like a team built to make some noise in the AFC yet again, but there are questions of if they did enough to improve their overall position in the conference.

They still have time to add improvements to their team. These are three cheap, available free agents who could make an impact on the Titans in 2020.

3. Logan Ryan, CB

Logan Ryan is a free agent who actually played his 2019 season with the Titans, and it was a great season at that. He totaled a career-high 113 tackles and 4.5 sacks, while intercepting four passes, which were his most since 2015. Ryan was a big reason why the Titans were viewed as such a physical defense last season, and his ability and willingness to hit people is why Tennessee was able to beat such a physical team like Baltimore last season. Ryan says the Titans never really talked extension with him, but they would be wise to do so.

2. Marcell Dareus, DT

This Titans defense is solid, but they could still use more help in the middle, especially if they get matched up against the Ravens again. While Marcell Dareus is no longer the 10-sack All-Pro he was in 2014, he can still be a solid rotational piece and veteran presence for this team. Dareus spent his last two-plus seasons with the divisional foe Jacksonville Jaguars, starting 22 games for them.

1. Jordan Reed, TE

Tight end Jordan Reed has stated that he wants to continue playing. While he may have a long ways to go from injury before that can happen, he would be an incredible addition to the Titans, if he can stay healthy. Obviously, the list of injuries for Reed is vast. His success on the field can also not be understated, playing like a wide receiver at the tight end position. He averaged over 10 yards per reception in three of his last four seasons played, showing he can be another great weapon to stretch the field and open up running lanes.
