Last year the Tennessee Titans spent over $100-million in free agency. On Tuesday team CEO Tommy Smith said the team is not done rebuilding the roster.

In a Nashville radio interview, Smith reiterated the team is “going to be active.”

In past years the Titans have been very quiet in free agency, especially the first two weeks when the highest profile players are usually signed.

Last year that changed with the team signing Andy Levitre, Sammie Lee Hill, Delanie Walker and Shaun Greene all in the first 48 hours.  

They likely cannot afford to spend that freely this season, but they should have the cap room to add several quality players if the opportunity presents itself.

The Titans can also free up millions more under the salary cap if they decided to part ways with high priced veterans like Chris Johnson and David Stewart.   The team has been extremely non-committal about Johnson's future with the team.

The Titans are holding a pair of events Tuesday for season ticket holders, Smith said before the early portion the team is “shaking things up”.  

He also acknowledged the importance of getting the locker room right and having everyone “pulling in the same direction.”

Just before the Super Bowl, Walker said the Titans had “six or seven” cancers in the locker room.   

Smith said “cancer” was not necessarily the right word to use, but he's all for bringing in people to better the organization.
