The question is: Can they pull it off?
Young, who the Titans announced earlier this month will not return next season, is due a $4.25 million roster bonus 10 days after the start of the new league year, a clock that will begin ticking when a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) is signed, ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported.
It previously had been thought that Young was due the bonus March 10, which led many to believe the Titans had to deal or cut Young by that date.
Because the bonus is tied to the CBA, it gives the Titans a more flexible window to address the Young situation.
If Young is traded, his new team must assume his contract or be willing to restructure it. Schefter wrote that while the Titans can release Young as of February 7, they have no plans to do so now.
The Titans also are in the process of finding a replacement for coach Jeff Fisher, who left the team Thursday after 18 seasons.
The club is expected to interview offensive line coach Mike Munchak on Monday, and are expected to interview linebackers coach Dave McGinnis and offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger.
Schefter reported that Titans executive vice president Steve Underwood, general manager Mike Reinfeldt and owner Bud Adams are making the final decision.
