1. Jayon Brown
Just remember, the grass isn’t always greener.
Jayon Brown is the best option at MLB this offseason. Yes, it was disappointing to see him take a step back in 2020, but he still had 76 tackles and a sack in 10 games. In 2019, Brown had over 100 tackles to go with 1 sack and 1 INT, and was cemented as a key cog of the Titans’ D. It was concerning to see Brown’s struggles in pass coverage, but perhaps that was caused by scheme and not lack of talent. I mean, not even a year ago the discussion was being had about Brown possibly commanding $13 million per year or more.
After the way 2020 went, it’s safe to say Brown will not be getting a contract in that range, but he should still command a hefty payday. If the Titans feel that LB is a need, there’s no one better to invest money in than Brown, unless an unforeseen trade happens. It basically comes down to this: Brown should be re-signed, because the team probably won’t find anyone better in free agency.
With Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith both likely out the door, Brown will be the last of the “big three” free agents and if he isn’t retained it would mean that the team is going to look much different in 2021.
