Tennessee Titans

1. Signing Calvin Ridley to a four-year, $92 million contract

Ridley's a great player, but that is just a TON of money for a soon-to-be 30-year old wide receiver who's missed a good bit of time over the last few years. And even outside of football reasons, the icing on the cake for this one is that it was a two-birds-one-stone situation: now the Titans are straddled to that contract for the foreseeable future, while the Jaguars lose their 2nd-best offensive player in the present.

And yeah, if he torches the Colts twice a season for the next half-decade, no one in Indianapolis is going to be laughing – but we'll cross that bridge when we get there. For now, inner-divisional chaos is always fun to watch when you're not involved.

2. Signing Tony Pollard to a three-year, $24 million deal

Give the Titans some credit: they committed to spending money this offseason, come hell or high water.

Replacing Derrick Henry with basically the same deal for Pollard is objectively funny, even if there are some rational football reasons behind that decision.

Banking on Pollard to fill in for Henry is a big ask, and it either doesn't go well or the Titans are paying $24 million for one running back in a committee. Either way, big deals for running backs are the easiest thing to laugh at right now, and it wouldn't be petty NFL fandom if we didn't take the easy laughs where we can get them.
