Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams spent big. Now he wants to win big.

Adams opened his piggy bank, bringing in a flood of free agents, intent on improving a 6-10 team that has missed the playoffs for four consecutive seasons.

The core of the team with receiver Kenny Britt, tailback Chris Johnson, and quarterback Jake Locker remains, but this is a roster that has seen a 38% turnover.

Controversial defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, after serving his year-long suspension for the infamous Bountygate scandal in New Orleans, has been hired to fix a unit that allowed a league-worst 29.4 points per game in 2012.

Adams spent more than $100 million on free agents, including guard Andy Levitre, tight end Delanie Walker, defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill and safety Bernard Pollard.
