With an NFL collective bargaining agreement approved, the Tennessee Titans are ready to move forward with a roster plan, team officials said Monday.

“There are a number of our own players that we would like to have return and we have targeted certain players in the veteran free agent market,” General Manager Mike Reinfeldt said. “This will be an unusual time and the roster will be evolving throughout the preseason. But I am confident that it will be where we want it by the time we start the regular season.”

Early Monday, the NFL and its players association agreed to a settlement to end a four-plus-month lockout. The NFLPA executive committee and representatives of the 32 teams voted unanimously to approve the deal’s terms. Both entities signed the agreement Monday.

Titans Head Coach Mike Munchak said the staff has “taken advantage” of the long off-season.

“We are really excited that there is a labor resolution and now we can get the team together to starting building something special,” Munchak said. “I have been in the players’ shoes and I know they are eager to get started. And I look forward to being able to interact with them again. I want to thank the fans for their patience. I have been as anxious as they have been to get going and now we get that chance. We are going to put together a team that will make them proud.”
