Potential Tennessee Titans trade targets: Safety Javon Hagan
Right now the issue for the Tennessee Titans isn’t that they don’t have talent at safety, the problem is that they are struggling to keep safeties healthy enough to figure out their best option.
Since training camp started, Matthias Farley, Tedric Thompson, Dane Cruickshank, and Brady Breeze have all either missed multiple practices or have gone on I.R. Right now the depth chart is looking very thin behind presumed starters Kevin Byard and Amani Hooker.
Luckily, it looks like the Bucs might not have the space to keep four traditional safeties on their 53-man roster. According to Jon Ledyard, Ross Cockrell’s ability to play both safety and cornerback might mean that the Bucs only keep Antoine Winfield Jr., Jordan Whitehead, and Mike Edwards.
That leaves Javon Hagan as the potential odd man out.
Whether Hagan gets cut or whether the Tennessee Titans would have to do a deal around a late-round pick is up in the air, but if you want to look for why Jon Robinson would trade for Hagan then just watch what he did in the first game of the preseason.
Hagan ended up with 3 TFLs and an interception which are eye-popping numbers for a safety, even in the preseason when offenses haven’t quite figured everything out.
