Stock down: The Tennessee Titans’ banged-up pass catchers

Josh Reynolds has been back at practice recently but for nearly a week the Tennessee Titans were missing their presumptive WR3.

There is nothing wrong with missing some time in training camp to make sure that you are completely healthy and ready for the season, but it would have been a nice bonus for the Tennessee Titans offense if Reynolds and Ryan Tannehill were able to build up some chemistry with the other two projected receivers practicing load management.

The other player hinted at in the title is Geoff Swaim who projects to be a pretty big part of this offense. In fact, if you want to get into the ugly truth of it all, he and Jonnu Smith had the same yards per target in 2020.

Beyond that, Swaim’s career yards per target average sits at 6.7, just a tick below the mark that Jonnu Smith had last year (and that includes a year where he had to play with the Jacksonville Jaguars when he only had 3.8 yards per target because…Jacksonville).

Now his role is slightly in danger because of the addition of Luke Stocker who has a very similar skill set.

Tennessee Titans fans shouldn’t be concerned yet, but it would be great for both if they could get some reps in during the preseason and do it sooner than later if possible.
