Here’s the controversial statement of all controversial statements. Anthony Firkser is good enough to make you forget about Jonnu Smith at certain points of the coming NFL season. Now, that isn’t meant to slight Smith. He’s a bad dude. That isn’t to state that Firkser is as good as Smith is right now. He isn’t, but this Firkser guy is one of the hardest workers on this Tennessee Titans team.

Someone like Zach Ertz could still be in play, but if the Titans go another route and they decide that he isn’t, Firkser won’t just be ready but he’ll also be someone that will improve as the season marches on.
