The Tennessee Titans need help at cornerback, badly. I am not breaking new ground here and everyone can see that the Titans need help on the back end, the question is where can they go to get that help?

Well, no team in the NFL has promised to be more active on the waiver wire than the Titans, and no team has a higher priority on the wire than the Titans. With that in mind, it is time for fans to look towards some other team’s depth charts to find some help.
Based on seeing a few preseason games and watching a lot of these guys coming out of college, these are the teams with some deep CB depth charts.
The Vikings kept five cornerbacks last year, and trimming down to that number this year could be tough. Right now, their top six cornerbacks can all play in this league, you have:
1. Xavier Rhodes
2. Terrance Newman
3. Trae Waynes
4. Mackensie Alexander
5. Captain Munnerlyn
6. Marcus Sherels
Now, the first four should be locks. Munnerlyn has been a consistent producer in the NFL and could be a great addition to this team. On the other hand, Sherels has been a good return man in this league and his addition could mean the end of Dexter McCluster or Antwan Blake which could free up another spot on this roster.
Someone that really sticks out to me on this team is Asa Jackson. I really liked him coming out of college, and had him with an early day three grade. He has bounced around the league, but I think he can be a nice backup player who can play in the slot or on the outside.
I don’t see him as a starter, but a nice depth player.
Sterling Moore is the name that stands out here. With a nice group up top and with Nickell Roby looking like the starter inside it looks like he could be available.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I really think that Alterraun Verner could be a cut in TB, and that could be great for the Titans. While he hasn’t stood out in the passive Bucs defense he was an outstanding cornerback in a pressure heavy defense run by Gregg Williams in Tennessee.
With Dick LeBeau running the show, pressure is expected on every down from somewhere. That sort of confusion and aggressiveness could be the perfect setting for Alterraun Verner to make his comeback.

Those are some of the teams and some of the cornerbacks that I could see helping this team. While I think the starters are set, this team seems dangerously thin at cornerback with some guys that seem very frail.
While there is a game next week, the most interesting storyline this week could be what the Titans do on the waiver wire, not the field.
