What to do with the Tennessee Titans 53rd roster spot.

Teams dream of having a week 8 bye week for a lot of reasons and the Tennessee Titans are no different.

Think about it, you:

-Get a week to get healthy in the middle of the season

-Have enough film of you and your opponents to really analyze what your team and every divisional opponent has success doing. You can also scout the weaknesses.

-Your rookies don’t have to play 10 games straight, which is where the rookie wall can occur given the length of the preseason and the shorter college schedule.

-Most importantly, you get a chance to really make a push to get a player before the trade deadline or to bring someone to the team from outside and get them up to speed before the next game.

It is that last point that I really want to focus on today. Who should have the Tennessee Titans 53rd roster spot?

Brandon Weeden QB

Did you know that Weeden is still on the Titans roster? I honestly didn’t until someone told me last week.

With Marcus Mariota healthy (we all pray) this is a great time to let him go. Worst case scenario you can just pick him back up again, it didn’t seem like teams were dying to get him on their rosters.

Right now I guess he has to be on this list because he is actually the Titans current 53rd guy.

Josh Carraway EDGE

This is the guy I would love to bring up. Carraway and Aaron Wallace were the only Titans that showed any ability to rush the passer with speed in the preseason.

Now that Wallace is dealing with a back injury and is on IR, the Titans have to be looking for a way to boost their pass rush.

With Kevin Dodd now a weekly healthy scratch, the team needs to add some talent to the gameday roster quickly and his athleticism lends itself well to playing on special teams as well.

Dwight Freeney EDGE

Really quickly, I just wanted to remind everyone that Freeney is a free agent. He is currently visiting with the Seahawks but if he leaves without a deal Jon Robinson should ABSOLUTELY call him.

    The Titans talked about bringing him up last week, but that never materialized.

    Let’s face it, Derrick Henry and DeMarco Murray are very inconsistent and they have left Titans fans disappointed. Part of that may be because they are kind of the exact same back.

    They lack dynamic lateral quickness, quick acceleration, and an ability to just get low and take the yards a defense gives them. Muhammad isn’t going the Pro Bowl this year, but it would be interesting to see just what exactly he could do.

    Harry Douglas WR

    You remember Douglas? Marcus Mariota’s other safety blanked beside Delanie Walker and Rishard Matthews last year? Well, maybe it is time to bring him back from IR and let him get some reps with the offense.

    Eric Decker had both his best and worst games with the Titans within a week, and he looks inconsistent. Bringing back Douglas could allow the Titans to slowly integrate Corey Davis back into the offense without pushing him to play 40 snaps in his first game back.

    Byron Maxwell CB

    This is just a big name who was really good at one point in his career, but he would be more valuable on the roster than Weeden right?

    Maxwell is 6’1 and he would offer the Titans something they really don’t have, a big CB.

    While there are some scheme fit issue, he would at least prevent the Titans from having McCain or Sims on Nuk Hopkins again the next time the Texans and Titans meet up. That has to be some improvement right?
