Trade Number 3: The Titans relieve Kristian Fulton by way of Jaylon Johnson
The Titans have had a hard time finding success defending the pass this season, and one of the main culprits has been former second-round pick, Kristian Fulton. Currently, Fulton is Pro Football Focus' 100th ranked cornerback out of 112 eligible players. He's been fine in run defense, but very poor when it comes to coverage.
One player the Titans could go after, that could actually become a future defensive cornerstone, is Chicago Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson. In the last year of his rookie deal, Johnson would like a new contract, and he's been playing like he deserves one.
On the season, Johnson has been targeted 17 times and held his receivers to just eight receptions, good for 47 percent completion. He is allowing an opposing quarterback rating of 64.6 and has not yet allowed a touchdown on the year.
The 24-year-old has also been credited with five stops on defense, giving him a nice and well-rounded skill set. Johnson certainly deserves a new deal, and the Bears may not give him one and thus allow him to hit free agency. Maybe, Chicago would prefer to get a pick in exchange for the young corner. If so, a third rounder seems fair for one of the NFL's top-10 graded corners.
