Brandon Banks, WR
Brandon Banks is exactly what I want to see from a CFL signing if I am a Titans fan. First and foremost, you can understand why he led the CFL in touchdowns and receiving yards.
Before the 2010 NFL Draft, Banks ran a 4.33 40-yard dash at the Combine but still went undrafted out of Kansas State. After spending time with the Washington Football Team, he eventually made his way to the CFL but not before he scored a return touchdown and a passing touchdown for the NFC East basement dweller.
Once in the CFL, it took Banks a while to really develop into the star that he is now, and through his first three full seasons, he averaged 375 yards and 4 TDs. However, over his last three seasons, he has exploded with at least 1,000 yards and 8 TDs in each season.
That may be underselling him because over that stretch he 1,328 yards and 11 TDs. And just to throw in some more value for the Titans, he also averaged over 10 yards per punt return which would have been 3rd highest in the NFL last year.
The Titans need depth at wide receiver and they don’t have a solidified punt returner, so Banks at least fills a need with a player who has elite production and athleticism. No one could argue that it isn’t worth a shot, even if he doesn’t translate perfectly.
