Tennessee Titans best contract


This time of year is perfect for reflecting on the 2014 season and looking ahead to the future of the franchise. There is no way to do that in the salary cap NFL, without looking at each player’s contracts.

With the 2015 NFL Draft over and free agency in the final stages, the contracts are all pretty much done around the league. This is a look at who has the best contract for the Tennessee Titans, and why that contract is good for the team.

Tennessee Titans best contract: Harry Douglas, WR

The Tennessee Titans are only paying the veteran receiver Harry Douglas a $2.2 million cap hit for 2015. That number is 53rd among all receivers in the NFL, which is much lower than where Matt Miller ranked him on his receiver rankings.

Here is some of what Miller had to say on his 33rd ranked receiver and new Tennessee Titans receiver Harry Douglas:

“It was one of Harry Douglas’ (6’0”, 183 lbs, 6 seasons) best seasons in the NFL last year. A primary reason for that was his ability at the catch point. Not only was he more consistent catching the ball cleanly, but he also showed off the ability to track the ball and adjust to it with greater ease.”

    While Miller does touch on it in his report, the thing that is harder to quantify is how he affects the Tennessee Titans young receivers. This is a guy that watched Julio Jones and Roddy White become an elite combination, and who knows how to aid in the development of young talent.

    If Dorial Green-Beckham needs help growing into his role, Douglas will be there with tips and tricks that Julio Jones used coming up in the league. Not only that, but during the Atlanta Falcons hay day, Douglas played unselfish football and knows that success is team based not an individual award.

    He gives this team a veteran to look up to in the wide receiver room, and a player who can come in immediately and give Marcus Mariota a consistent threat. While he is often forgotten this offseason among names like Dorial Green-Beckham, Marcus Mariota, Tre McBride, Brian Orakpo, Derrick Morgan, Perrish Cox, and other offseason additions, I would bet that his impact will be anything but forgotten during the 2015 season.
