Tennessee Titans: Give Me Greg Jennings


The Tennessee Titans need to get Greg Jennings

That’s right.  Let’s back up the dump truck and try one more time at bringing in a stud free agent wide receiver.  I know it hasn’t panned out for this franchise in the past, but this one would be different.  When looking at the key free agents available this year, I have always just glossed over Greg Jennings.  It’s not an area of dire need for the Titans, and probably going to cost way too much anyways.  That was all before Kenny Britt’s latest soap opera.

Kenny Britt is in the headlines again and not for anything good.  I’m not saying he did anything, but I am saying he can’t stay away from trouble.  While writing this article he is apparently in some sort of hiding, and the New Jersey police have released a statement that they are wanting anyone, including the Titans owner, to turn him over.  I would like to see how long Britt lasts on the roster if the cops actually call Bud Adam’s house looking for him.

But back to Greg Jennings.  Whether Britt is around or not, Jennings could be a wonderful get for the Titans.  I know there are stronger needs at interior offensive line, safety and defensive end, but there is also a huge hole at veteran leadership on this team.  Matt Hasselbeck could be one of those guys, but as a backup your voice can only carry so far.  Greg Jennings could bring a huge dynamic target for Locker, while bringing this type of leadership to the team.

I’ve never been one to suggest going out and paying top dollar for the hot free agent.  I can’t remember it working in the past and having a playoff team winning at the end of the year because they paid through the nose for a single player.  But I’m changing my tune in light of the recent episode of As the Jersey Turnpike Turns starring none other than Kenny Britt.

The Titans are going to be around 20 million under the cap this off-season and have some dough to spend.  They should pick up a good guard/center, another safety, and some depth at linebacker.  Draft the same positions with a dynamic first round DE to boot.  And, oh yeah,….   GET ME GREG JENNINGS!

 

Well?  You want Jennings now or not?

    I’m not a fan of paying WR big money (unless they’ve been drafted and developed by same organization). However, Greg Jennings has proven that he can excel with a good quarterback, whether that was Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers. If Titans want to pay Jennings, I’m fine with it.

      Two recent cases of success stories: Vincent Jackson to Tampa Bay and Brandon Marshall to Chicago. Both big name receivers who had 1000+ yard seasons with their new teams. Though of course, Marshall was being reunited with his old friend Cutler.

        an it got those teams no where….but i still want jennings!

    Need something if Kenny Britt is going to keep being idiotic and injured.

  • Shawn Eagle

    I just wonder if he would even want to come to Tennessee….the prospects of winning a Super Bowl are slim to none. If he just wants money….then I would take him in a heart beat

      Every comment you post makes me so sad. Your Titan love meter is at 10, approximately.

      • Shawn Eagle

        Well that makes me feel good. Thanks for that comment.(That’s sarcasm) Are we not supposed to question and try and think about these things? If I missed a memo…believe me I can put on happy face and act like the potential of this team is through the roof. I can easily comment on posts with Titans shaded glasses on.

          Ha ha ha. I’m just saying, you seem to lack any optimism. No real hope in Locker, it would seem, and obviously little hope that this team turns it around this next season.

          • Shawn Eagle

            Wow…. I lack any optimism….that’s comforting…glad that I portray that. I’ve had optimism for this team for 20+ years.

            I’ve said before…I really liked Locker when he came out of high school, I loved him in college….but the more I see him play, the more I wonder if he has what it takes to be a good consistent QB that will lead this team for the next 10 years. He seems very skittish, indecisive with the ball, inaccurate, skatter brained and out of control. Most of the talk I here regarding Locker is how he has this huge arm…and how his mobility is so amazing….like he can leap tall buildings in a single bound….sounds like a comic book hero….I’m just trying to keep it real instead of sounding like a 6th grader who has a Locker poster on my wall and signed pair of his shoes next to my bed.

            Truthfully….this team is in shambles…if you don’t see it then you are probably in the minority. We just finished 6-10….the HC is firing everybody on staff except the people that really deserve to be fired. The owner fired his COO….well just because he was pissed and flew in from Houston and had to fire someone to make a point that he is pissed about how the season ended.

            There are simply way too many questions to be answered about this team to even act like we will be in the conversation for the Super Bowl next year….oh yeah and guess what….if we don’t turn it around next year…then Munch is gone and a brand new regime will take over…that’s just real talk my friend. That’s reality…..wash, rinse, and repeat.

            Real talk, indeed. I don’t understand the whole position that anyone who is critical of Locker is a pessimist. Honestly, what has he quantifiably done for the Tennessee Titans? You can be hopeful for the future, but honest about the fact that he hasn’t performed as even a Top 15 QB.

            Again, I really like Locker and am giving him my full support in 2013, but I am declaring that I will not be giving him more passes if he doesn’t show improvement. This is the area that’s troubling; even defenders of Locker have to admit he regressed towards the end of the season. This means he is trending downward heading into the season.

            If you had an employee who was not living up to expectations, would you continue to tell him everything is golden and not to change a thing?

          • josh gunnels

            Wow… It’s amazing how an article about Greg Jennings can turn into a Locker debate! I’ll say this:

            Those that are giddy about Locker are foolish based on what we’ve seen.

            Those that have already written him off in light of the o-line, shoulder injury, and coordinator changes are equally foolish.

            Bottom line is we will see next year if he can come back from his shoulder surgery quick enough.

            The team is in shambles, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t hold out hope for next year. I’m not talking super bowl, but yes they could make the playoffs. (i think they need new coordinators to make that happen)

            anyways…be realistic, be pissed, be optimistic. it’s all good. it takes all types.

      I think he would like Nashville. More of a laidback town, kind of like Green Bay. I’ve noticed a lot of people move from Wisconsin to Tennessee. They enjoy it. However, like you said, the fact that this team doesn’t look anywhere near ready to win a SB will make it tough to get him here.

    • josh gunnels

      maybe he likes country music and warm weather? no state income tax and an easy lifestyle. munchak is a HOFer and he knows he would be the number 1 target by a landslide.
