What I said:
“I believe that LeShaun Sims can be a CB2 in this scheme, especially if he develops as much as he did during the season, in the offseason. However, outside of that I am not sure that anyone is safe.
Jason McCourty hasn’t played exceptionally well and he costs a lot of money to be a team’s second best CB. Jon Robinson isn’t sentimental and he was raised in the New England Patriots system so I believe that could mean the end for McCourty in Tennessee despite how well he did over the majority of his career.”
What Robinson did:
Let’s start with the second point. I was dead on that McCourty ended up a cap cut. He and the Titans just couldn’t work out how to keep the relationship going and now he is a Cleveland Browns CB.
So, that left the Titans with Sims who I thought could be a CB2 and not much else. You could argue that McCain may have some worth as a depth player, but outside of that I don’t really know what to do with this group.
Robinson made strong moves here, first by bringing in Logan Ryan.
Say what you want about Ryan, but you know you can win a Super Bowl with him and you can do it in multiple ways.
Ryan can be a slot CB or a boundary CB, and he can cover excellent route runners as well as those power forward types.
His other strong move was adding Adoree Jackson in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
I wasn’t crazy about this move, but it fits exactly what Robinson wants in a CB. He is a very gifted athlete and he affects a lot of passes.
The tiebreaker between Adoree Jackson and other CBs was his ability with the ball in his hands. I would be surprised if Jackson doesn’t find a way to score a touchdown on offense, defense or special teams this year.
