The Tennessee Titans will be looking for one or two players that can take them to the next level in free agency, and I have three receivers that can do just that.
When you’re as close to the Super Bowl as the Tennessee Titans, you know what it takes to get there and how close you were.
After seeing the Titans go on the run that they did in the second half of the season and the playoffs, you have to think that the front office won’t want to change much when it comes to players and coaches on the roster.
You also don’t want to see the Titans settle. With that being said, some improvements will have to be made for the Titans, and I think there are three receivers that can help get the Titans to the Super Bowl and maybe its first Super Bowl win in franchise history.
If Ryan Tannehill returns to the Titans and can have another good year in 2020, then the Titans could find themselves in a very good spot when it comes to making the Super Bowl.
One more playmaker on the offense could push the Titans to the next level, and if Tannehill can continue to improve, we could see a Titans offense that is at the top of the AFC. With that being said, I have three wide receivers that could lift the Titans to the next level.
1. Amari Cooper
Amari Cooper will undoubtedly be the most popular wide receiver in free agency if the Dallas Cowboys can’t find a way to keep him and all of their other big-name players.
Cooper is the type of player that can take a good offense to a great offense. He’s a threat on the outside, and at any moment, he could head to the endzone for a touchdown.
He took the Cowboys offense that was struggling and unable to be good consistently to the number one overall offense during the 2019 season.
If Tannehill had Cooper line up on the outside and along with Corey Davis, A.J. Brown, and Tajae Sharpe, the Titans could have the best receiving corps in the NFL, and that would no doubt take the Titans to the next level.
In 2019, Cooper had 79 receptions for 1,189 yards and eight touchdowns. The 25-year-old’s salary was $14 million last season, and that could be a per-year minimum for Cooper in 2020.
2. Robby Anderson
Robby Anderson has spent his five seasons in the NFL in a struggling New York Jets franchise and could use a change of scenery to take his game to the next level.
He hasn’t had a quarterback that is good enough to take him to the next level in New York, and Tannehill and the Titans could be the team to take Anderson to the next level, and he can also take the Titans to the next level.
Anderson is a fairly young receiver but comes with plenty of experience, so it’s a good balance. He could also be cheaper than most of the other big-name receivers, which is a plus for the Titans who will likely have to pay Tannehill and Derrick Henry.
He also poses as a deep threat and can be one of the best deep threats in the league if he’s in the right system.
In 2019, Anderson had 52 receptions, 779 yards, five touchdowns. The 26-year-old’s salary was $3 million last season and could be a cheaper option for the Titans.
3. Breshad Perriman
Breshad Perriman is in a similar position as Robby Anderson with some experience, but he’s still fairly young. He’s also been in a franchise that has struggled to find success. A possible change in scenery could also boost Perriman’s performance in 2020.
He could be used to changing scenery as he’s been on three teams in four seasons, most recently landing in Tampa Bay.
Last season he set career highs with Bruce Arians running the offense and has some high upside going into 2020. Not very many people probably know about him, so he could also be someone that only a few teams look into.
I think Perriman offers some potential with the Titans’. He’s another cheaper option that could turn out to be well worth the investment for the Titans.
In 2019, Perriman had 36 receptions, 645 yards, six touchdowns. The 26-year-old’s salary was $2 million and offers a cheap asset that could be worth much much more.
The Titans will have a lot of options when it comes to improving their offense. These three receivers could be game-changers for the Titans if they decide to strike a deal. If not, the Titans will have to look elsewhere for improvement.
