Tennessee Titans WR Marcus Johnson
For all we know, Marcus Johnson is a myth or a figment of our collective imagination. He didn’t make an impression during the preseason and he was immediately placed on short-term I.R. when the season started.
However, if the rumors are true then Johnson was on pace to be a better version of Nick Westbrook-Ikhine with more tools and a knack for making spectacular catches.
When people said that Racey McMath looked like Julio Jones early in training camp, no one thought that they meant that both players would be the direct causes of two of Ryan Tannehill’s three interceptions on the season.
McMath is lucky enough to have a role on special teams so he won’t get cut for it, but keeping him on special teams and bringing Johnson in to help on offense might make a world of difference.
Who should the Titans cut?
In this multiverse we created where Darryton Evans has been brought back, then the most expendable player is Cam Batson.
The coaching staff loves Batson, but he isn’t as good on special teams as any of the other receivers or Darrynton Evans and you could easily have Evans run all of the jet-sweep/quick pass plays that the Tennessee Titans would normally run with Batson.
