Here’s something that might be worth noting. It’s one of those possibilities that doesn’t get discussed as often as it should. Though much is expected of Caleb Farley and even though the expectation is that he should be a part of this team’s long-term goals, no one should be surprised if Janoris Jenkins is the guy that winds up lining up across from the opposing team’s best wide receiver.

Jenkins’ first nine seasons have already produced an All-Pro nod and a Pro Bowl nomination. Both came in 2016, so we know that he can play the game at its’ highest level.

The Tennessee Titans face several of the game’s best wideouts at various points of the season. DeAndre Hopkins, D.K. Metcalf, Michael Thomas, Tyreek Hill, and T.Y. Hilton highlight the list. Still, the combination of playing on a contender and Tennessee’s three primetime games will provide “Jackrabbit” with enough opportunities to catapult himself into the public consciousness.

So far, Jenkins has 540 tackles, 2.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles, 119 pass breakups, and eight interceptions on his resume. Expect another great season from him again in 2021 in his first ride with the Tennessee Titans. He was a monster pickup for them, and he’s potentially an upgrade from Malcolm Butler.
