Could a late addition mean a trade for the Tennessee Titans.
This isn’t Madden. You can’t just make trades with other teams whenever you want…unless you are Tennessee Titans GM Jon Robinson.
Robinson is one of the few GMs in the NFL that doesn’t just talk about making the roster better, he makes it a mission on a day to day basis.
So you can imagine why people got really excited when big name wide receivers Eric Decker and Jeremy Maclin hit free agency over the last week.

Tennessee Titans fans are used to only having one good receiver on the team at a time (if that many). Now with Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews and Taywan Taylor fans are dealing with what it feels like to have a stacked group of skill players.
However, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for improvement.
The overwhelming sentiment you see in terms of fan desires is adding one of those big name wide receivers and cutting veteran leader Harry Douglas. I don’t see that happening.
It just doesn’t make sense, Douglas only played about 230 snaps for the Tennessee Titans. He is valued for his work in the meeting room more than his production on the field.
However, an addition could facilitate a trade. Will Batson had a great idea:
Sharpe was already looking at a reduced role coming into the season and it would suck for all parties if a young player got buried on the roster. Why not send him somewhere where he can flourish?
As you can see now, plenty of teams are in the market for wide receivers but why would you pass up a chance to play with Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans for one of those teams if the price tags were comparable.
So, a way for all teams to get better is to send Tajae Sharpe to another team needing a young, cheap wide receiver with talent. That team can send back a player or a pick and the Tennessee Titans can sign Jeremy Maclin or Eric Decker.
The WR depth chart then goes like this on the outside:
WR1: Corey Davis
WR2: Rishard Matthews
Then in my slot package I go:
WR1: Rishard Matthews
WR2: Eric Decker/Jeremy Maclin
SWR: Corey Davis
Then I would work Taywan Taylor depending on matchups and what was working.
I think that would make a B+ group of wide receivers into an A/A+ group for the Tennessee Titans. Now will Jon Robinson spend the money?
