DeAndre Hopkins has wrapped up his visits with the Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots, but it sounds like we are a month away from any sort of decision being made.

While I don't expect there to be too much activity going on at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park in the final weeks of June, there are a few things that the team should consider.

It wasn't that long ago when Mike Vrabel and Ran Carthon were wrapping up the 2023 NFL Draft and talking about all of the potential changes that could take place on the Tennessee Titans roster between then and the start of the season.

There hasn't been much movement in terms of players getting cut from NFL teams, but there was an influx of new bodies when the XFL concluded their season. Several teams signed players from that league and the Tennessee Titans even got in on the action when they signed tight end Alize Mack.

With the USFL regular season over and with the championship game set to take place on July 1, it is time to start looking at players from that league to see if anyone could be an upgrade for the Tennessee Titans.

A great place to start looking for players that could jump from the USFL to the NFL is to look at the USFL's "All-USFL list" which is their version of an All-Pro list. After looking at those players, there are two standouts that could fight for a job on the Tennessee Titans roster.

What the best of the USFL has to offer the Tennessee Titans

Luis Aguilar, K

It is hard to say whether Aguilar or Matt Coghlin was the league's best kicker, but Aguilar definitely got the most work with a league-high in field goal attempts (29) and makes (25). Considering Aguilar's large sample size, it is easy to see why the Tennessee Titans might want to bring in a veteran to compete with their duo of unproven kickers.

Corey Coleman, WR/PR/KR

Coleman is fascinating because he actually led the USFL in targets, receptions, and receiving yards, but it isn't even his ability as a receiver that makes him the most interesting. Sure, his 67 yards per game was impressive and he looks like he can still move, but he was also a very solid returner.

There was only one player in the USFL with more punt return yards than Coleman and that was Isiah Hennie who was the All-USFL punt returner this season. Given his versatility as a return man with the ability to fill out the depth chart at wide receiver, it might be a smart idea for the Tennessee Titans to at least kick the tires on the former first-round pick.
