Tennessee Titans should sign Marcus Peters

The Titans went into the offseason with several needs and one of these needs was starter and depth help at cornerback. Has Tennessee addressed this issue? Aside from bringing in Sean Murphy-Bunting, the position is largely the same.

Marcus Peters seems ancient. If I had to guess without looking it up, I would assume Peters is 58 years old. Somehow, Peters is only 30 years old and in 2022 he was actually pretty serviceable. The concern about Peters is his injury history. After being a first-team All-Pro in 2016 and 2019, Peters has missed several games, including the entire 2021 season.

With the Baltimore Ravens, the percentage of passes completed against him when targeted (64.3) was about the same as in 2020 (64.0) and his yards per target (8.5) was lower than in 2018 (9.4). Basically, while Peters isn't the player he was in 2016, he is still a good player and he would be a valuable addition to the defense.

Peters might not want to play for anyone else other than the Ravens, but Tennessee also wouldn't have to pay him tons to try to entice him to Nashville. Spotrac has Peters' market value at $9.8 million per year but no team is going to pay Peters anywhere close to that. If Peters is willing to take $5 million or less, the Titans should snatch him up.
