The Tennessee Titans have made the NFL playoffs in three of the last four seasons and will be looking to build off of that success in 2021. In order to do so, they need to continue making crucial offseason moves that improve their roster and keep their cap space under control.

The free-agent market is full of top-tier players as well as experienced veterans ready to contribute right away, but it is important to sign the ones that fit the team the best.

With that in mind, here are three free agents the Titans should avoid signing.

The Titans are likely looking to improve the pass-rushing abilities of the defense this offseason, but Leonard Floyd is not the right fit here. The former top-10 pick is coming off of his best season racking up 10.5 sacks in his first year with the Los Angeles Rams. However, he posted just 18.5 combined sacks in the four seasons prior to 2020. He hasn't been able to show consistency and will likely become too expensive for the Titans to sign. They are better off saving the money in this situation and addressing this need through the upcoming NFL Draft.

Losing Corey Davis to free agency creates a major area of need for the Titans this offseason. They need to find a reliable player to line up opposite of AJ Brown, but that player should not be Golden Tate. Tate will be 33 by the time the 2021 season kicks off and hasn't surpassed 700 receiving yards in either of the last two seasons. In a loaded wide receiver class, there are much better options for the Titans to consider than Tate.

3. Jadeveon Clowney, DE

The Titans took a chance on Jadeveon Clowney last offseason signing him to a one-year contract, but it is safe to say that it did not work out well. Clowney played in just eight games for Tennessee and posted zero sacks, 19 tackles and four tackles for a loss. Simply put, he hasn't been able to live up to his potential recently and the Titans do not need to make it a priority to bring him back. There are a number of defensive line free agents the team could sign that do not come with the kind of risk or potential price tag Clowney does.
