Kenny Britt (WR) – STAYING
The Titan offense rises and falls on #18 being on the field. Forget the comparison of the Titans with Vince Young and without, in games without Britt in 2010 the Titans were 1-5. And at least 3 (vs. Dallas Cowboys, vs. Philadelphia Eagles, vs. Houston Texans) of the Titans’ 6 wins can be attributed to Kenny Britt going off.
Nate Washington (WR) – STAYING
Washington is a solid #2 receiver and is very similar to the build and design of Derrick Mason. If the Titans can find an accurate and strong armed signal-caller, Washington will really flourish. Also, he still has a few years left of being a deep zone threat.
Damian Williams (WR) – STAYING
The Titans were loaded at wide receiver this season, leaving little need to rush Williams into service. In the sparse opportunities he did receive, he looked promising enough to be the dazzling, slot receiver the Titans were looking for in last year’s draft.
Randy Moss (WR) – GOING
It would be amazing if the Titans and Moss could work out an agreement that would bring back this veteran receiver. Despite his disruptive history, Britt could benefit greatly from a premier wide receiver teaching him the tricks of the trade. But his price tag is not in Bud Adams’ range.
Justin Gage (WR) – GOING
Jeff Fisher could decide to keep Gage around, if he is still not convinced Williams is ready. Gage’s contract is also up at the end of next season, meaning leaving him on the roster could be an easy way to save money next year. Besides Gage is a good depth player to keep around.
Marc Mariani (WR/KR/PR) (Pro Bowl Selection) – STAYING
This diamond in the rough from Montana is a delightful surprise and the best returner the Titans have had since Adam “Pacman” Jones. And although he does not have the upside Jones did at his listed skill position, he does not look to be the problem child that Jones was off the field.
Bo Scaife (TE) – GOING
Speaking out of turn is not the only knock against Scaife, who will be a free agent this off season. After consecutive seasons under the franchise tag, he has not dazzled enough to merit the kind of contract that he (and his agent) will be looking for in 2011.
Craig Stevens (TE) – STAYING
Staying healthy is still a concern going forward, but Stevens is definitely a tight end of the Frank Wycheck mold. Both with the ability to deliver punishing blocks and be a safety-valve and red zone threat for the next Titan quarterback, whoever that may be.
Jared Cook (TE) – STAYING
Scaife’s late season deactivations provided Cook with an opportunity to make an impression with Titan coaches and fans alike. The result was a mixed bag of great catches, untimely drops, impressive yards after the catch, and missed blocks. Cook needs to become more consistent at the fundamentals.
