The NFL trade deadline is rapidly approaching and it seems like the Tennessee Titans could be a team to watch.

-Last week there were rumors about the Titans being interested in Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, which would make a lot of sense. More news came out this morning from Ian Rapoport saying that teams were actively calling the Eagles about the Pro Bowler.

-Another player that Tennessee Titans fans have been interested in is Denver Broncos cornerback Kyle Fuller.

His name has been thrown around a lot and there have been mixed reports about his availability, although the Von Miller trade and this tweet from Pro Football Talk make it seem more substantial than idle rumors:

-Speaking of Denver Broncos players and Tennessee Titans needs, Benjamin Allbright shared a picture where Noah Fant liked several tweets that mentioned him being traded. Later Allbright said that it looks like he was liking them as motivation, but right now the Broncos are in a position where I would have to think they are willing to discuss anyone.

-The Tennessee Titans have signed Adrian Peterson and D’Onta Foreman (practice squad) to help ease the loss of Derrick Henry for a few months. Will that be the only thing they do? Adam Schefter posted a list of running backs who might be available via trade.

-For weeks the Tennessee Titans Senior Editor Jim Wyatt alluded to Jon Robinson potentially making calls and getting a deal done if the price was right. With so many injuries to the offensive line to start the season, these suggestions were usually in response to questions about offensive line help. Keep an eye on that position as the deadline nears.

What else do the Tennessee Titans need?

Well, don’t forget that the Titans are set to get Kristian Fulton, Jayon Brown, Aaron Brewer, and Derick Roberson back from I.R. sometime soon.

Once those players are back, the weakest positions on the team are probably defensive tackle and tight end. Other than that, the only real argument for giving up a pick is for a receiver that adds a different element to the Titans’ offense.

Houston Texans receiver Brandin Cooks is probably out of the question, but someone with speed like that or someone with exceptional size like Tim Patrick from the Denver Broncos is intriguing.
