Free agency move the Tennessee Titans should make right now
By Will Lomas
Who I would swap
The Tennessee Titans have too many offensive linemen on the roster that really serve no purpose. If I was making a move, I would either put Jamil Douglas on I.R. or I would cut Daniel Munyer.
I picked Munyer because the Titans chose to put Aaron Brewer in the game ahead of him last night in a jumbo formation, so it stands to reason that Munyer is probably the lowest-ranked interior lineman they have.

Instead, where the Tennessee Titans need to focus on adding depth is at wide receiver.
It was painfully obvious last night that Kalif Raymond was being asked to do too much and for all the offseason praise, he couldn’t make big catches in big moments when asked to do something other than take the top off the defense.
He should still be on this team and he offers them something that no one else does, but he isn’t a WR4 that can fill into any position, he is a specialized role player.
They need someone who can do a little bit of everything, and for my money, Demaryius Thomas is the best player left on the market who can do that. I said this about Thomas in August:
"Excluding his rookie season, Thomas has been an above-average receiver at his lowest, averaging at least 12 yards per catch in 7 of 9 seasons, including last year. Even though he has an issue with drops, he generally is more good than bad and if you want a receiver that has the size and the athleticism to threaten defenses in different ways, then Thomas is a good option. The Titans could use another receiver who can scare defenses on screens, and he is one of the few “big” receivers left on the market and if the Titans want to replace Tajae Sharpe’s usage in the redzone and as a 3rd down target, then that is a good thing to have."
There is no downside to signing a veteran receiver now from a cost standpoint, and he would be the ideal player to replace Raymond on offense. Last night Raymond played 18 snaps and Cody Hollister played 4.
Instead, the Titans could get 15 snaps from Thomas and 5-10 snaps from Raymond, but in those 5-10 snaps he could be used as a vertical threat or his presence would at least make the defense respect that there could be a vertical threat on that play.
Meanwhile, Thomas has had drops but those are already a problem for Raymond so when you look at what each player can actually do knowing that drops will be an issue, either way, it is a no-brainer to pick the versatility and size of Thomas over Raymond.
