3 fast WRs Tennessee Titans should target in free agency
By John Lowell
The Tennessee Titans need a burner in their wide-receiver room. Here are three the team should target in free agency.
With the emergence of wide receiver A.J. Brown, the narrative for the Tennessee Titans is changing. Media pundits must no longer exhaust themselves trying to solve the team’s WR1 issues. And, no one should have to worry if the upcoming year will be Corey Davis’ breakout.
Instead, now we can project complementary pieces surrounding Brown and Davis. The “Adam Humphries experiment” didn’t pan out (so far) as hoped, and while wide receiver Tajae Sharpe is a good route runner and red-zone threat, the only “electric” secondary piece in the room was wide receiver Kalif Raymond.
In regards to contracts, the truth of the matter is that Humphries is going nowhere fast. There’s a potential out for the Titans after the 2020 season, but he’s locked in (barring a trade no one sees coming) for the foreseeable future. His contract is too expensive.
Sharpe is good on the boundary and has solid hands, but he doesn’t offer much more. He is a serviceable WR4 on a rookie deal and is replaceable. And I like Tajae, so don’t get me wrong, but the Titans can replace him in the draft.
Then, there’s Raymond, whose role was as the team’s “burner.” He offered some versatility in the return game, and there’s no denying that Titans general manager Jon Robinson values Swiss Army knives. Raymond is on a pretty cheap contract for 2020. It’s a toss-up, but either way, the Titans should address speed on the perimeter.
Let’s freakin’ go.
