Titans Free Agents 2012: Key Defensive Contributors Could Leave

With the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts in transition, the AFC South is not the powerhouse division it has been in the past. The Houston Texans are a solid team, but there are wins up for grabs. The Tennessee Titans could capitalize on these developments, but only if they keep their defense intact. Some of their best defensive contributors are unrestricted free agents, and they'll be hard pressed to keep all of the players that they want to keep around. Additionally, key offensive lineman Jake Scott is an unrestricted free agent.

Here's a complete list of Titans free agents, via Mac's Football Blog.
