No. 1 unexpected signing the Titans can still make: Jarvis Landry

Locking up Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to a two-year deal might've been the best decision Tennesseee made in the offseason. The fact that they managed to lure him in even though he had other offers makes his signing even more satisfying.

Hopkins gives the Titans a true No. 1 receiver who can draw coverage away from sophomore Treylor Burks and force opposing teams to play with lighter boxes, which should help running back Derrick Henry have bigger gains on the ground. Having said that, Tennessee could still bolster their wide receiver corps. Outside of Hopkins and Burks, who still needs to prove himself, the Titans are lacking depth at the position.

Rookie receiver Colton Dowell could contribute down the road but expecting a late-round selection to make an impact right out of the gate might be too much to ask. This is why pursuing veteran Jarvis Landry makes lots of sense.

Landry, a second-round pick in the 2014 draft, has caught 80 passes or more in a season six times throughout his NFL career. He was never a burner but he's excelled as a possession receiver, something the Titans could use in 2023.

Although injuries limited the former LSU Tiger to nine games and 25 receptions for 272 years with one touchdown in his lone season with the New Orleans Saints, his presence would give Ryan Tannehill (or whoever lines up behind center) a productive safety blanket in the middle of the field next season.
