Trade rumors are starting to pop up around the NFL and Tennessee Titans fans should at least keep an eye on who is available.

If a trade was coming, I would have expected it to happen during the bye week to make sure that the new player had as much time as possible to acclimate before getting on the field with the Titans. However, that doesn’t mean that a trade is impossible.

Last week I mentioned Brian Burns and what he could do for the team short-term and long-term, and I think everyone knows about D.J. Moore. Right now it seems like any deal for those players is going to be impossible because the Carolina Panthers front office thinks that they are attractive pieces for any potential coaching hires.

I decided to keep track of which notable players could be on the move before the trade deadline. Most of these names should be common knowledge, but some haven’t been brought up often. For those players, I linked to the relevant tweet/article so that you can see where it came from.

Tracking the potential trade targets for the Tennessee Titans

Carolina Panthers: Christian McCaffrey, RB

-I don’t think the Titans sniff around here at all, but I think it is very likely that he gets moved.

Chicago Bears: Robert Quinn, EDGE

-Quinn has been rumored to be on the block since before the season started. If the Bears are willing to eat some of his salary, I think he could be very interesting for the Tennessee Titans. He had 18.5 sacks in 2021 and he could be a great addition to the pass rush even if he was only half as good as last year.

And if he doesn’t work out, he has a deal with no guaranteed money so the Titans could just cut him.

Denver Broncos: Jerry Jeudy, WR

-This one was surprising to me, but it definitely seems to be something that could happen. The Denver Broncos are struggling and Jeudy is liking tweets about him getting traded, so there is trouble in paradise.

Jeudy is someone that the Titans would have liked coming out of college considering his consistent production and SEC pedigree.

Denver Broncos: Melvin Gordon, RB

-Like McCaffrey, I don’t see the Titans making a move for a running back right now.

Denver Broncos: Albert Okwuegbunam, TE

-The Tennessee Titans love big tight ends, but they have a hard enough time picking the right guys to put on the field now.

Houston Texans: Laremy Tunsil, LT

-Even if Tunsil wasn’t in the division, I don’t think the Titans would want an expensive left tackle that can’t stay healthy.

L.A. Rams: Cam Akers, RB

-He is really intriguing if he can put it all together, but a deal wouldn’t make sense for the Tennessee Titans.

New England Patriots: Kendrick Bourne, WR

-Bourne is a solid chain-mover that could fit into the Titans’ offense, especially considering how often Tennessee rotates their receivers. His contract isn’t bad at all, and he could bolster depth.

New England Patriots: Isaiah Wynn, LT

-Wynn was benched during the Patriots’ game against the Cleveland Browns last weekend and he has not been playing well at all. A big reason for that is that they moved him from left tackle (which he was playing well) to right tackle, which generally doesn’t work in the NFL.

The Tennessee Titans need options at left tackle and this would be a 12-game rental since it is the last year in Wynn’s contract. If it works out and they like him, maybe Wynn can be the left tackle of the future. If not, then they can let him walk and potentially get a compensatory pick. Win-Wynn.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Chase Claypool, WR

-The Steelers do a great job finding wide receivers and making the most of their talents. In fact, it is rare for a receiver to leave Pittsburgh and have a better career with another team, so trading for one is a scary proposition.

Still, Claypool is a big wide receiver who seems fit to be a WR2 in an offense that exploits matchups with his athleticism. That would be attractive to the Tennessee Titans because this offense demands that the receivers at least appear like they have the ability to be run blockers.
