NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Free agency rolls on in the NFL, but the Tennessee Titans are still looking to fill several holes in their roster.

Monday the Titans hosted linebacker Terence Garvin, safety Rashad Johnson, guard Luis Vasquez and cornerback Antwan Blake at St. Thomas Sports Park and all of them left without a contract.

The team was hoping to not allow a couple of those guys to leave town without a deal.

A deal may still be in the works for all of them, but by allowing them to leave it allows other teams to make their pitch.

Blake left Nashville Monday and reportedly visited the New England Patriots Tuesday.

While some teams have spent millions upon millions, new General Manager Jon Robinson has remained relatively fiscally responsible landing running back DeMarco Murray at about $6 million a year, center Ben Jones at just over $4 million a year and wide receiver Rishard Matthews at $5 million a year.

That is $16 million for a team that started with close to $50 million in cap space.

Robinson has said they will remain disciplined as they look for help in free agency, but with about $34-million in cap space remaining and fan base starving for improvement that could be put to the test.
