The 2021 Tennessee Titans will be better than 2020’s version.

Yes, the Tennessee Titans need a wide receiver. They’ll get one in the NFL Draft, and oh yeah, that A.J. Brown guy is pretty good. Derrick Henry will be back, as will Ryan Tannehill.

That cornerback issue might also be satisfied in the selection meeting as well, and you can’t forget the rookie corner they drafted a year ago. Kristian Fulton. He’ll be back, and ladies and gentlemen, he’s going to be pretty good.

The Titans lost Malcolm Butler and Kenny Vaccaro from their secondary, but they also added Kevin Johnson and Janoris Jenkins. They added wideout Josh Reynolds. Bud Dupree will help that ailing pass rush from a season ago.

Yes, those salary cap issues kicked this team’s rear end, but with the moves they made and with nine picks in the upcoming selection meeting, there’s no reason to believe, with Jon Robinson pulling a few strings, that this team won’t be just as good as they were a season ago.

They may even be better. Meanwhile, the rest of the AFC South is declining around them.
