Then you have the evidence that pass blocking matters more than pass rushing. There is little doubt as to whether the Titans could bring back Tannehill, Henry, and Conklin if they wanted to. First, we know that Conklin is A) a top ten player at his position and B) a fit for the Titans offense as it is currently constituted.
No matter the case, after last year’s right tackle Rick Wagner was released, Vaitai surely seemed like he would be Wagner’s direct replacement. In fact, chances are that Conklin’s deal won’t look that bad by the 2022 offseason, just like Lewan’s deal — which set a record for offensive linemen at the time — looks like an absolute bargain less than two years later. Due to injuries along the line, Lions head coach Matt Patricia has shuffled the deck upfront. ... That involves improving AT LEAST one interior OL position… Read more on Matt Patricia discussing if the Lions can build momentum following the Detroit Lions victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Conklin is currently rated #8 overall for all tackles in PFF (83 grade), Crosby is 35th (70.5) and Vatai hasn't even played RT yet. The downside to using the extra space to sign a big name pass rusher is that you likely cancel out the 2021 third round compensatory pick that you would have gotten for Conklin. It might not be out of the question that even Vaitai himself rides the pine. So what should the Titans do with their right tackle’s contract situation over the next couple weeks? College: Michigan St. (College Stats) Weighted Career AV (100-95-...): 34 (3153rd overall since 1960) High School: Plainwell Conklin, even by the harshest standards, certainly qualifies as a top ten player at his position in the NFL right now — a position that is extremely difficult to fill — and at just 25 years old, he’s about to enter his prime. Jack Conklin was available in free agency and signed for only a little more than Vatai received. This isn’t necessarily a fair comparison since Kelly has played both left and right tackle during his time here and coming off the bench isn’t the same as being a full time starter, but Kelly’s sack per pass pro snap rate is 1.02% since coming to the Titans in 2016. Conklin, at just 25 years old, is just now entering his peak. Read more on linebacker Jarrad Davis being a potential trade target for a winning AFC team. BUT... there is an argument to be made for swallowing hard, understanding that it’s an overpay, and still doing it if you’re the Titans.
Address those positions early in the draft (the odds of a pass rusher or corner being good right away is significantly higher than the odds of a tackle being good right away). All in all, the Lions need to play their five best linemen. They’re all cheaper than Conklin but will force the Titans to draft a backup plan at the position sooner rather than later in the 2020 NFL Draft. Mobile users click the notification bell.
the official stats partner of the NFL. Dennis Kelly is the obvious choice from a veteran standpoint. He is more of the run-blocking mauler type. That offense blew away expectations down the stretch in 2019, finishing the year as a top ten unit in the league (top five if you isolate just the Tannehill games). Having Decker and Conklin would have been optimal. Could one of those guys turn out to be great for this offense?
That means that the team would immediately be down to about $32 million in cap space for 2020 on March 12th, assuming that they hadn’t already made cuts to clear more room. Conklin is, at worst, above average when it comes to pass pro and you get the added benefit of his mauling presence in the run game.

First, the team would need to have it’s ducks in a row with regards to both the quarterback position and Derrick Henry prior to the franchise tag deadline of March 12th. You certainly wouldn’t want to risk losing Tannehill or Henry just to take a pass at trading Conklin.
Do you have a blog? In recent years, the Titans, like many teams, have made a habit of suppressing the first year cap hit for free agent signings in order to take advantage of the rollover cap rule (I explained how this works here in the “Can they afford all their own guys?” section) and the fact that the salary cap rises every year. Perhaps Dahl enters a guard rotation with Jackson and Vaitai, like we saw a season ago. Draft: Tennessee Titans in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft. However, if you settle for a guy that isn’t quite in the Ngakoue/Clowney tier — maybe a Robert Quinn or a Jason Pierre-Paul — and Marcus Mariota gets good money elsewhere, maybe those contracts cancel out and give you a third back for Conklin.
Early reports are pointing to a normalized increase in #NFL Salary Cap for 2020 ($200M) then back to back big jumps in 21-22 (not unlike how the NBA agreement worked). First, we know that Conklin is A) a top ten player at his position and B) a fit for the Titans offense as it is currently constituted. There is a good chance that Andrew Thomas is long gone before pick 29 as well. Read more to find out who belongs in the "Penthouse" and who belongs in the "Doghouse" after the Lions' Week 6 victory in Jacksonville. Going into the season, that was the assumed starting unit.
Obviously, the flip side here is that you let Conklin walk, re-sign Kelly for roughly a third of the price and then draft a long term option in the early rounds. Among the six that did clear this semi-arbitrary threshold, just three are expected to actually reach free agency without getting franchise tagged (Golden, Quinn, and Addison). Jonathan Jackson Conklin Position: OT 6-6, 308lb (198cm, 139kg) Team: Cleveland Browns. This is a great result if the team could make it work. Fire Quinn. Do you have a sports website? An extra top 100 pick in either this year’s draft or the next would help offset the opportunity cost that drafting a tackle to replace Conklin would create. Jonnu Smith injury update: Titans tight end suffered “minor ankle sprain” per Adam Schefter. Among the pass rushers expected to hit the market, Matthew Judon (9.5), Mario Addison (9.5), Markus Golden (10), Bud Dupree (11.5), Dante Fowler (11.5), Robert Quinn (11.5), and Shaquil Barrett (19.5) hit that number last season. That would be cutting it extremely close to get deals done for Tannehill and Henry, much less adding additional talent like a big time pass rusher. I think there are three options in play here.
To some degree, I can understand that argument. Wake and Correa combined for 7.5 sacks last year so you’d need your replacement for those two to net at least 9.5 sacks in 2020 to make it a wash (and that’s if you believe that sacks allowed and sacks made are worth the same amount for both the offense and the defense, but that’s an argument for another day).
Be sure to follow us on Twitter @DetroitPodcast. If you take the sack rate allowed by Conklin and Kelly noted above and extrapolate it out over a 16 game season, the Titans would theoretically give up just over 2 extra sacks per season by going from Conklin to Kelly. That’s a formula for a big payday and it sounds like the former 8th overall pick is going to get it. One problem -- and it’s a good problem -- Crosby has been playing solid, and may deserve to be the top guy on the right side.
I mean, you have to extend a tiny bit of grace because hindsight is always 20/20, but it would have been nice to have that money back.
Are you a Stathead, too? This is a fascinating offseason because there are viable arguments to be made on both sides of pretty much every decision that faces Jon Robinson and each of those choices he has to make are absolutely critical to the future success of this franchise. Important to note, Vaitai's deal can basically become a two-year, $15.8 million contract, with $4.2 million of dead cap in 2022. Reports are beginning to trickle in from Indianapolis (where rampant tampering definitely isn’t happening wink wink) that Conklin has a chance to leap frog Lane Johnson’s recently signed contract and become the highest paid offensive lineman in the league when he hits free agency, putting him north of $18 million per year in average value.
Based on his debut, it wouldn’t have been crazy to expect that he might be the best right tackle in the NFL by this point in his career.
I don’t expect them to get anywhere near the return that Clark fetched (while their Super Bowl rings certainly don’t care, that still seems like a massive overpay), but if the Titans could get a 2019 third round pick or a 2020 second round pick, I would imagine that would be worth the trouble of using the tag and holding the $16 million cap hit that comes with it on the books for a few days. Read more on the Detroit Lions' chances of winning their next four games on the schedule. For one, offensive lineman age better than most positions in the NFL, including pass rushers. All that being said, if you were to take the $18 million that would have gone to Conklin and split it between Dennis Kelly and a pass rusher that ends up producing 10-plus sacks next year, you’re probably a better football team in 2020, right? Kelly is a clear downgrade, but he gives you a floor. Stafford has been sacked a ton to start 2020. All logos are the trademark & property of their owners and not Sports Reference LLC. Houston traded Clowney (and paid $7M of his 2019 salary) for a third round pick. The Texans gave up two firsts for Tunsil, in part, because they had two years of control with him having the fourth year of his rookie contract and the fifth year option (the other part is that they had a head coach pretending to be a GM). Jack Conklin was available in free agency and signed for only a little more than Vatai received. However, the tag and trade option isn’t a terrible idea either.
Vaitai himself battled an injury, and did not play the first two weeks of the season.
If Vaitai is not one of them, it’s another major black eye on Quinn's fleeting reputation.
So far, that has not transpired, but could change soon. Sure, but offensive line prospects are far from sure things, even in a good class. The other argument against re-signing Conklin that I see frequently is that fans would rather use that money to spend on a pass rusher. Det could have resigned D. Slay and J. Clowney (Still Draft Okudah), Det coud have signed D. Slay and D. Trufant, and then draft D. Brown, or Ceedee Lamb, or J. Kinlaw.....etc.
