Scout's Take: Titans Should Deal Veteran Players Away

By BLAKE BEDDINGFIELD, special correspondent

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans are not a very good football team, but this isn’t something that just happened overnight, this was going to be the outcome at some point this season whether the fans and organization wanted to admit it or not. This team was flawed from the start, unfortunately, things unwound within the first six weeks of the season.

I mentioned in the preview if the Titans lost versus the Ravens, they need to consider trading valuable pieces and acquiring draft assets for the 2024 season. The Titans only have two picks in the top three rounds in the upcoming draft. Acquiring as many selections as possible is key to being able to select depth and players that can develop into two deep pieces.

DeAndre Hopkins could bring back a fourth-round pick. Everybody else in play would be more like a fifth- to seventh-rounder, but the Titans need to collect all the draft picks they can get.

I believe the time is now to make these moves, but who is going to make that decision for the organization?
