2. Kristian Fulton, CB

Coming out of LSU four years ago, Kristian Fulton was viewed as one of the next best corners this league was going to see. However, Fulton has not panned out the way the Titans would have liked. Fulton is simply not the shutdown corner Titans fans thought he would be.

This year, Fulton is allowing 72.5 percent of passes to be completed when he's been targeted. He is also allowing a passer rating of 129.3, which is even worse than his finish in 2022 (102.4). The Titans are toward the bottom of the league in pass defense, giving up over 230 yards per game through the air, and Fulton is a large reason why.

Going into the offseason, Fulton should be allowed to leave, and not just based on performance alone. He has yet to play a full season and has been hampered by injuries since his rookie season that saw him appear in just six contests.

Tennessee may need to totally revamp their cornerback position next spring, as Sean Murphy-Bunting is also a free agent. It's safe to say that Fulton is not the only weak link, defensively, but he's been one of the worst on that unit.
