4 defensive backs the Titans should target
2. Xavier Rhodes
After already snatching one former Colt in free agency, why not make it another one?
While not the elite corner he once was, Rhodes proved in 2020 that he can still play. Rhodes finished his lone Colts tenure with 42 tackles and 2 INT’s and received a great mark from PFF. Rhodes will be 31 by the time the 2021 season starts, but he could very easily have 2 or 3 quality seasons remaining. While playing a similar role to Breeland, Rhodes is a more polished and proven player with an All-Pro pedigree.
Rhodes will most likely not earn the amount he would’ve earned a few years ago, but he would be very much worth a 1-year gamble. Think back to what the Titans did last year with Johnathan Joseph- bringing in a solid veteran to mentor the young guys on a reasonable contract.
The difference here is that Rhodes is actually still a good player.
