If the Titans go outside to find a receiver, some options

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans made a move at tight end, adding Anthony Firkser from the practice squad. Maybe he can help offset Jonnu Smith’s struggles.

Will they do the same at receiver, where Darius Jennings and Nick Williams, working as the fourth or fifth guy have dropped crucial passes in the last two games?TitansFlag

I’m not expecting any kind of notable addition, but the Titans did cut Williams Tuesday and have an open roster spot.

Former Titans scout Blake Beddingfield spoke of some of the options out there Tuesday on The Midday 180.

Off the air I got him to flesh out his feelings on a more comprehensive list.


A rundown:

Dez Bryant (Dallas, first round, 2010) – He’s going to want snaps that the Titans won’t want to give away, cutting into the young trio they are looking to develop. Not the personality to help Corey Davis and the rest of the guys in the room.

Jeremy Maclin (Philadelphia, first round, 2009) – Not a bad option if he’s healthy, but he’s dealt with a lot of injuries. Can field a kick or a punt but won’t be a special teamer.Carroo

Leonte Carroo (Miami, third round, 2016) – Currently on the Dolphins practice squad. The Titans liked him when he was coming out of Rutgers in 2015. Good run-blocker with solid hands. Good route-runner in college. Nice developmental player. (Photo courtesy Miami Dolphins.)

ArDarius Stewart (New York Jets, third round, 2017) – Has speed, can be tough with an edge and will play coverage on special teams. But he had a positive test and a suspension.

Breshad Perriman (Baltimore, first round, 2015) – Former first-rounder has the height, weight and speed. His instincts are average. Never should have been a first-rounder.

Malcolm Mitchell (New England, fourth round, 2016) – Always hurt. Has speed. What’s injury status?

Jeff Janis (Green Bay, seventh round, 2014) – Special teams type.

Brandon Coleman (New Orleans, UDFA, 2014) – A big X receiver who’s not going to play special teams.

Brandon Tate (New England, third round, 2009) – A returner and slot receiver.

Markus Wheaton (Pittsburgh, third round, 2013) – Vertical guy. Hands are not the greatest.
