5 free agent signing that could make the Tennessee Titans even better

What could be the cherry on top of the Tennessee Titans free agent sundae?

Jon Robinson did a great job attacking free agency at all the right positions this year, but could the Tennessee Titans make another outstanding move?

First of all, it is important to know that we are in the second wave of free agency right now. There are still guys available who can really help the Titans next year and beyond, but there aren’t a lot of “blue-chip” guys left available.

However, an outstanding signing doesn’t have to be someone that breaks the bank. Dion Lewis wasn’t that guy, but he was exactly what this offense needed.

So with that sort of fit in mind, here are the five players that could turn a solid/good free agency class into a great group.

5. Michael Crabtree, WR

It seems weird to type this, but the Tennessee Titans struggles a lot in the redzone last year. Now a large part of that was the coaching staff putting this team in position to fail. However, a true redzone threat at WR would have really helped.

The Titans have their top 4 WRs set as far as I am concerned:

1. Corey Davis

2. Rishard Matthews

3. Taywan Taylor

4. Tajae Sharpe

Traditionally your 5th WR should probably have some special teams skills, but given what they have invested in the special teams, the Titans could pull off bringing a 5th WR with a very nice skill set. For Michael Crabtree, that skill set is catching touchdowns:

4. Pernell McPhee, EDGE

There are a lot of “guys” at EDGE left on the board, but no standout rushers. The reason why I like McPhee is because he hit his peak with Dean Pees in Baltimore. While he never quite got back to that status as a rusher, he could be a good fit with the Titans as a 3rd rusher to pair with a rookie on sub packages.

3. Kenny Vaccaro, S

This is a tough one, but I like Vaccaro to the Titans for a few reasons. For one, the need a safety that can not only start in a pinch, but who can play both spots. I think Vaccaro has that versatility.

I say this because right now there is no “3rd safety” to play behind Cyp and Kevin Byard. They need quality depth there if they are going to make another playoff run. Brynden Trawick is a great special teams player and could play som safety in a pinch but I think Vaccaro would be a really good safety net.

2. Tyrann Mathieu, DB

Mathieu is two years removed from being one of the best safeties in football and he had a deceptively good season this year. The only reason he is available is because Arizona knows they aren’t in a win-now mode and they probably can’t pay him what he was under contract for.

He and Adoree Jackson played more snaps than anyone else in the NFL last year when you combine defense and special teams. They are dynamic talents that can bring explosive plays to a team in two separate phases.

With cornerback loaded for the Titans, Mathieu could give the Titans a dynamic player to line up anywhere on the field and make plays. In that role I think TM7 could thrive.

1. Ndamukong Suh, DL

I don’t have to beat a dead horse on this one right? Suh is one of the best players in the entire NFL and whether or not you like his after the whistle antics, his play between the whistles is nothing short of stellar.

I won’t wax poetic here, but I want you to look at the sheer number of impact plays that Suh made last year. He was the most dominant interior defensive lineman in the NFL in terms of production.
