Help is coming to the Tennessee Titans offense!
Three-time All Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins reportedly is signing with the Titans this offseason.
This is a huge addition for the Titans, as the team was unable to truly replace star A.J. Brown after trading him to the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2022 NFL Draft.
Hopkins should take over as the Titans’ No. 1 receiver alongside youngsters Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and 2022 first-round pick Treylon Burks.
With Derrick Henry in the backfield and Hopkins on the outside, are the Titans undervalued in the futures market?
Titans’ odds to win the Super Bowl following DeAndre Hopkins signing
Tennessee is way down in the odds to win the Super Bowl at +8000.
That makes a little sense with the team still having quarterback issues after missing the playoffs last season. Ryan Tannehill underperformed and the team has two young quarterbacks in Malik Willis and Will Levis that are unknown quantities coming into 2023.
Still, Hopkins gives the team some offensive firepower on the outside that it never had in 2022.
Hopkins spent part of the 2022 season suspended due to a performance-enhancing drugs violation, but he showed still can be a No. 1 option for an offense.
The five-time Pro Bowler caught 64 of his 96 targets in nine games for the Arizona Cardinals in 2022. He turned those 64 receptions into 717 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the process.
He did that despite Kyler Murray tearing his ACL and missing the end of the 2022 season for Arizona.
Hopkins six seasons in his NFL career where he has cleared 1,000 receiving yards. He also has 71 career receiving touchdowns.
Titans’ odds to win AFC South in 2023 season
Tennessee is second in the odds to win the AFC South at +310, while last year’s winner, the Jacksonville Jaguars are -150 to take home the division crown.
The implied probability of Tennessee winning the division is just 24.39 percent!
That could be a massive value considering the fact that Tennessee was the No. 1 seed in the AFC in the 2021 season.
Sure, the team took a step back in 2022, but adding Hopkins gives the offense exactly what it was missing last season. If Tannehill can play better – or one of Levis or Willis emerges as a starter, the Titans could be one of the best bets in the futures market this offseason.
