Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson really, really likes Tennessee Titans wideout, Corey Davis.
It appears former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson is a big fan of the Tennessee Titans’ former No. 5 overall pick, wide receiver Corey Davis.
The receiver formerly know as “Ochocinco” was asked on Twitter which wideout he thought would have a breakout year in 2019.
Johnson first responded with Detroit Lions receiver, Kenny Golladay, but then threw Davis a ton of love in a tweet shortly thereafter.
Because the tweet has an expletive in it, we’re going to quote it right here. You can go to it directly by clicking here (WARNING: NSFW).
“Corey Davis is a f—— monster too, i like his game a lot.”
We tend to agree, Chad.
Davis is entering his third season in the NFL and is coming off a career year in which he totaled 65 catches for 891 yards and four touchdowns. Davis was the lead man in what was a depleted and lackluster receiving corps. The Western Michigan product had an over 26 percent target share.
While his numbers don’t look monstrous from last season, putting Davis on a different team that passes the ball more would have created much different results based on his target share.
Davis saw a ridiculous amount of elite coverage last season, seeing a top-25-graded cornerback on 43 percent of his targets in 2018, per Pro Football Focus.
Not to mention, with quarterback Marcus Mariota dealing with injury issues, the Titans were forced to run backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert out there, which no doubt hindered Davis’ production.
Davis will now have some extra help, with the additions of slot receiver Adam Humphries and second-round pick A.J. Brown. Tight end Delanie Walker will also make his return, thus helping to divert some of the extra attention Davis had to deal with in 2018.
When you add it all up, Davis could have his first 1,000-yard season and show the kind of monster that Johnson thinks he is.
