What is the Tennessee Titans biggest need?

CLEVELAND, OH - JANUARY 3: Austin Davis /

What do the Tennessee Titans need to look at on the waiver wire.

The Tennessee Titans game vs the New York Jets was disappointing and I wouldn’t be shocked to see Jon Robinson look at adding a player or two.

While I think it may be too late in the season to add anyone with real star potential unless they attempt a trade, this is the time of year when players like Josh Kline are released.

Those guys can come into the locker room and be above average guys in the right scheme, the question is what position needs the most upgrading.

To me the answer was pretty clear after Saturday, the Titans need a backup QB.

And before we talk about it too much, know that Matt Cassel is going to be the QB2 for this team, but they probably need to carry three quarterbacks.

They need someone young enough to come in and really learn the offense next year before stepping up to the plate if Matt Cassel decides to retire next year.

There aren’t going to be stars out there waiting for the Titans when cut day comes, but there are a few teams that I could see Jon Robinson watching closely.

Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks have some pretty solid backup QBs. Right now they have Trevone Boykin and Austin Davis behind Russell Wilson. Both of those guys looked very good in action and Davis actually looked decent when he was a starter with the Rams.

The other big thing to note here is that Seattle was rumored to be looking hard at Colin Kaepernick. If they add him then one of both of these guys will definitely be on the market.

Arizona Cardinals

Blaine Gabbert is never going to be a good starter and you could say the same thing about Drew Stanton. However, they do look much better this preseason that I remember combining to go for 27 of 38 (71%) for 350 yards and a touchdown.

When you look at Alex Tanney against the Jets, there are a lot of upgrades you could find and it may come down to one of these two.

Kansas City Chiefs

With Patrick Mahomes and Alex Smith on the roster, the QB1/QB2 slot is locked down for this year. However, Tyler Bray  still has something to give.

He showed off his arm talent in the Chiefs first preseason game, but had a deep pass called back for holding on the offense.

If you have a stacked WR depth chart, a good OL, two very good running backs, and a smart OC, then you can find a way to maximize Bray’s arm talent while minimizing his risk for a turnover.

I could see any of these teams being the place where the Tennessee Titans next QB2/QB3 comes from.

However, if I had to choose I am looking hard at Austin Davis. This guy has started 10 games in his career and between that and spot duty he has ended up with over 2,500 yards, 62% completion, 13:12 TD to INT ratio, and a 6.7 YPA.

Those numbers aren’t great, but considering a lot of those games were with the talent barren Rams and Browns, it is hard to come up with a completion percentage or TD to INT ratio that good.

I think he can be a very good backup in the NFL and he only just turned 28.
