4 free agent defensive backs for the Titans
As I’m currently writing, names are flying off the board in NFL free agency.
Well, technically no deal is “official” until Wednesday afternoon, but the legal tampering process officially got underway today. The Titans have reportedly agreed to deals with a few free agents already, including a guy who should be a great fit.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is who the Titans have lost.
The team released Malcolm Butler and Kenny Vaccaro in a pair of cost-cutting moves. While both moves are justifiable due to finances and advancing age, it still leaves a huge hole in the Titans secondary. Factor in potentially letting Desmond King walk as well and the Titans desperately need reinforcements in the secondary.
Now, a subtle part of this is that the Titans will get depth back with Dane Cruikshank returning from I.R. to help bolster the safety position. At corner, Tennessee still lacks a third starter so unless they feel confident that Breon Borders or Chris Jackson are going to step up, then you have to imagine an addition is coming.
In this article, I’m going to take a look at two cornerbacks and two safeties that are currently still available who could benefit the Titans in 2021. I’m going to focus on guys who could potentially make up for the lost production while also not costing a ton.
Let’s get to it.
