4 moves Tennessee Titans should make before the trade deadline
By Will Lomas
Sign Cameron Wake, EDGE
We are past the point of giving the Tennessee Titans defense any sort of credit. While I think that Desmond King and Adoree Jackson will help give this coaching staff just a little bit of courage, which will lead to them asking their defensive backs to actually step up and challenge receivers, I am not going to assume it.
So, how do you fix a defense that refuses to cover a receiver for more than two seconds? Well, you bring in someone who can get to the quarterback in under two seconds.
Cameron Wake struggled with injuries in 2019, but make no mistake about it, he was a lightning bolt off of the edge when healthy. In fact, when he was turned loose against tackles that didn’t have help, he was often in the quarterback’s face quickly either moving him off of his launch point or getting a sack.
After nearly a year of rest and recovery, now would be a great time to kick the tires on a pass rusher who has the ability to help a helpless defense.
Would he solve everything? No. Would he demand more from Jadeveon Clowney and add an injection of speed to the pass rush? Absolutely.
