Why the Titans should make a move
Nick Westbrook-Ikhine is the WR3 right now.
Wait did you need more than that? Fine.
So, you should all be familiar with the Matias Wodner rule at this point, but if not, it is the tendency discovered by Matias Wodner where Jon Robinson has never drafted a WR that didn’t have at least two 1,000 yard seasons in college.
Since the 2016 NFL Draft, 161 wide receivers have been drafted less than 30 of them passed the Matias Wodner filter, 18%. So the fact that the only four receivers that Robinson drafted all pass a rule that only 18% of wide receiver pass, is (at the very least) an amazing statistical coincidence. It is much more likely that it is a pattern.

One of the receivers that abides by this rule is Anthony Miller, so you can bet that the Titans had eyes on him but that was the draft where Tennessee moved up twice to land Harold Landry and Rashaan Evans.
Another reason why Miller is a guy that the Titans should push for is because he fits what the Titans need, right now.
Free agent signing Josh Reynolds projects to be a boundary receiver to replace the snaps lost by Corey Davis after he signed with the New York Jets. This doesn’t do anything to minimize the loss of Adam Humphries.
Trading for Miller gives the Titans someone who can come in and instantly lock down the role as the slot receiver in this offense and this could be a perfect situation to buy low on a player who doesn’t fit in their current team’s offense like the Titans did when they traded for DeMarco Murray or even with Ryan Tannehill.
Over his three seasons in the NFL he has only missed one game and that was back in 2018. Availability is going to be an important quality after the injuries that hampered the Titans in 2020.
What would fair value be for the Titans, and would it be enough for the Bears?
