Will the Tennessee Titans make a trade before the deadline on Tuesday at 3 p.m. CDT?
With the NFL trade deadline approaching on Tuesday, October 29th at 3 p.m. CDT, will the Tennessee Titans made a deal?
We haven’t seen many legit rumors involving the Titans ahead of the deadline, which leads us to believe that the team will stand pat and continue to roll with the players already on the roster.
Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky seems to agree with that sentiment.
The one legit rumor we saw had to do with former Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake. The Titans were reportedly interested in the back, however he was dealt to the Arizona Cardinals on Monday, squashing any hopes that Tennessee would greatly improve their running back situation.
If Tennessee does end up making a move at all, it’ll likely be a small one that won’t make waves or much of an impact. Tennessee sits at 4-4 and in a middling situation that doesn’t make the team an obvious seller or buyer, so expecting any kind of significant move is a stretch.
For those looking for quarterback Marcus Mariota to be traded now that he’s on the bench, there hasn’t been anything remotely resembling an indication that will happen.
As we already mentioned, the Titans do need a pass-catching back with Dion Lewis having a disappointing season, but opportunities at an upgrade there will be few and far between, and it remains to be seen if Tennessee will give up draft capital to make such a move.
On top of that, the Titans could use some depth on the interior of the offensive line and at outside linebacker, however it’s unlikely there will be many options out there that would be better than what the Titans already have.
Perhaps with the exception of running back, the answers Tennessee is looking for are already on the roster. The team just needs its players to stay healthy (in the case of the outside linebackers) and play better (in the case of the offensive line) moving forward.
We’ll have to wait and see as 3 p.m. approaches, but for now don’t hold your breath for anything to happen.
