There is still work to be done for Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans still have a bit of money to spend and still have positions of need.

The team isn’t that far off from being the playoff team it was prior to 2022. It is easy to forget after a seven-game losing streak, but injuries were the main issue this past season, not talent.

Still, Tennessee does need to add talent. The team doesn’t have a ton of picks in the 2023 draft (6), so adding talent in free agency is necessary. The Tennessee Titans have made a few moves that should improve the roster, such as signing Arden Key, but the team needs more.

The players on this list shouldn’t break the proverbial bank either. Tennessee might, in at least two of these cases, wait and see how the market plays out. But these three players could definitely help the Tennessee Titans bounce back to being a playoff-level team next season.

Tennessee Titans should sign receiver Adam Thielen

This is a bit of a pipe dream, I admit. Thielen isn’t a number 1 receiver anymore. Still, he offers the ability to catch a pass when targeted which few other receivers can do. In the last two seasons and in 202 targets, Thielen has dropped just 2 passes. This is important because the Titans have a run-heavy offense so if they are going to throw a pass it needs to be a receiver that will catch it.

And while Thielen is 32 years old, he is still productive. He played in all 17 games in 2022 and caught 70 passes. In the past three years combined, he has caught 30 touchdown passes. He is also a bigger receiver so even though he is ancient by receiver standards, he knows how to use his size to get open.

The Tennessee Titans need multiple receivers who can find a way to get open and catch passes. At least one of these needs to come in the 2023 NFL draft, but what better way to help a rookie receiver than by having a veteran in his ear teaching him the ways of the NFL? Thielen would be productive on the field and in the locker room.
