Key additions have actually been made at linebacker, EDGE, cornerback and across the offensive line. But pass receiver is a crucial area of demand that's gone untouched. The Titans properly launched Robert Woods from his bloated agreement. They re-signed Nick Westbrook-Ikhine to an one-year extension worth a little greater than the expert minimum. As of now, Westbrook-Ikhine helps comprise the worst receiver room in the NFL alongside the unverified triad of Treylon Burks, Kyle Philips and Racey McMath. Carthon hasn't been a reported player for a receiver in complimentary agency. The viewed top offered receiver in a weak course was Jakobi Meyers, who signed a sensible three-year contract with the Las Vegas Raiders. The most effective fit might have been Allen Lazard, that's a superb blocker with a background in a comparable crime. Lazard authorized a four-year agreement worth $44 million with the New York Jets. Some of the much better low-cost fits may have consisted of Darius Slayton and Parris Campbell, yet they've already signed modest agreements in other places. The remaining area leaves plenty to be wanted. D J. Chark is a standout, however he's currently attracted interest from 2 suitors not called the Titans. MeCole Hardman and Richie James may be fits, yet aren't needle movers. One heavyweight on the profession market is Arizona Cardinals pass receiver DeAndre Hopkins. New Cardinals general manager Monti Ossenfort, who signed up with Arizona from Tennessee, is being tasked with trading Hopkins this summertime. Should the Titans obtain included?

The Cardinals were when reported to anticipate a second-round draft pick in exchange for Hopkins' solutions. Will any general manager fulfill their recommended ask after the Dallas Cowboys obtained Houston Texans pass receiver Brandin Cooks for fifth-and-sixth round choices? Hopkins is a far better overall receiver than Cooks, however a third-round option may certify as a fairer center ground. There's also Mike Vrabel to take into consideration. Vrabel spent 4 seasons along with Hopkins in Houston. Vrabel has actually maintained a superb relationship with those he went across paths with in Houston. A wide variety of previous Texans coaches and gamers have signed up with Vrabel in Nashville. It's something that once aided bring Jadaveon Clowney to Tennessee. It just can't be ignored. The Titans might also be reluctant to obtain an additional aging receiver after getting shed by Julio Jones and Woods. Hopkins transforms 31 in June and missed a set of contests in 2022 because of a light knee pressure. Hopkins was likewise suspended for the initial 6 contests of the 2022 advocate an offense of the organization's performance-enhancing medications policy. Hopkins is about the very same age Woods was when the Titans obtained him from the Los Angeles Rams last summertime. Hopkins is younger than Jones was. Jones and Woods were additionally coming off more severe andor repeating injuries. It's something Carthon needs to consider while leaning on Vrabel's previous experiences.
