Wednesday, we saw a Tennessee Titans rival get even better as the Houston Texans traded for Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs in a blockbuster deal.

Houston has had an impressive offseason, as has Tennessee. These two teams appear to be very serious about trying to compete as soon as possible, with the Titans also making acquisitions like Calvin Ridley, Tony Pollard, L'Jarius Sneed among others.

So now that Diggs is in Houston, how can the Titans continue their stellar offseason and respond by filling additional holes on the roster? There are still some good options available in free agency, three of which make a ton of sense.

Tennessee should add competition at tackle with a former first-round pick

Offensive tackle is still a position of need in Tennessee, and while Mekhi Becton may not be a sure thing, he's well-worth the risk at this point. Becton's early career has been derailed by injury at times, but as a rookie in 2020, he was fantastic.

Last season was his first healthy season since that 2020 rookie campaign, and while he seemed a bit rusty, he's still just 24 years old. The guy was a first-round pick (no. 11 overall) for a reason. Becton is certainly worth taking a shot on, potentially with an incentive-based type of deal.

Because of his age, the Titans could even offer something along the lines of a 3-year deal worth up to $36 million, but only guaranteeing the first season. That seems to be fair, and would give him an opportunity to prove himself yet again while given the chance to be a permanent solution up front for this Titans offense.
