One final look at the Tennessee Titans wide receivers before cuts
The Tennessee Titans have completely overhauled the wide receiver position this offseason, lowering the ceiling on the group but absolutely making the position more stable.
Instead of ranking the wide receivers, this is a look at the group in terms of which players are most likely to make the roster, and which players are on the outside looking in.
It feels like a lifetime ago, but the Tennessee Titans traded a 2023 sixth-round pick for Robert Woods back in March. Even though he is coming off of an ACL tear, the 30-year-old has proven that he can make an impact in the NFL.
Through his 9 games played for the Rams in 2021, he had 45 receptions with 556 yards and 4 touchdowns. This year he definitely enters the season as the Tennessee Titans’ WR1 and could be the main target for Ryan Tannehill.
Treylon was the Titans’ 18th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, and it is clear why the team liked him.
The 22-year-old out of Arkansas averaged nearly 100 yards per game in his final two seasons (2020, 2021) and he racked up 19 touchdowns during that time as well. Remember, 2020 was the season where the SEC only played SEC teams, meaning that he was averaging nearly 100 yards per game against the best players in college football.
The 2020 UDFA has had to earn everything since stepping into the NFL. In 2020, he played in 14 games but only had 3 receptions since he was primarily a special teams player.
The next season, he really made his presence known as a role player on offense. In 15 games he had 38 receptions for 476 yards and 4 touchdowns. This season a lot is expected from Westbrook-Ikhine as he is needed to pick up some slack and fill in the holes on the team.
Philips was primarily drafted to be a punt returner, but he has been incredible in his short time in Tennessee. Not only has he looked explosive as a returner, but he looks like he is going to be a key player on the Titans’ offense.
McMath was drafted in the 6th round of the 2021 draft. While his role was limited in 2021, he has had a mini-breakout during the preseason and looks like he has a strong chance to make this roster as a special team and deep threat (which should have always been the plan for him).
Which receivers aren’t likely to make the Tennessee Titans’ final roster
Fitzpatrick has been working hard, and while he has the physical tools to warrant a look as one of the depth receivers, he just hasn’t put it all together.
Hollister has been a Titan since 2019 and has been primarily a practice squad player.
He has touched the field during the regular season however due to injuries. He has 7 receptions on 10 targets with 58 yards. With him being a big target at 6’4″, Hollister could see more playing time if given the chance to shine. But with other players on this list, he may just continue to be a practice squad player in Tennesee unless he is needed.
Kinsey was a UDFA and he is fighting for a practice squad spot. The team loves his work ethic and they want him around, but he has never done anything to suggest that they are missing out on anything.
Reggie Roberson Jr.
Roberson has great upside based on his athletic testing and college tape, and he is someone to watch as a developmental player on the practice squad who can compete for a spot on the 2023 roster if he can stay healthy and get better.
