NFL Free Agency Day Two: 4 Moves The Titans Should Make Today
The rumors are getting ridiculous. Like me, you are probably on twitter looking for news or at home hitting F5 on repeat on Reddit. Here are a few things the Titans should do today during day 2 of Free Agency.
1. Sign Dant'a Hightower But Don't Overpay
Hightower only had 30 tackles last year. However, he's still an elite inside linebacker. If the rumored asking price of $13M a year is accurate then the Titans need to steer clear. He simply would not be worth it at that amount.
2. Don't Let Jacksonville Land A.J. Bouye
This one is simple. Give A.J. Bouye the amount of money he is asking for. Even if it's over $12M a year I would still pay it. Allowing the Jags to add Bouye alongside Jalen Ramsey worries me. Even though they aren't competent enough to put a good team together, it still worries me. Ramsey already looks like a stud (and one that is pissed off at his hometown team for drafting him) and Bouye is about to blossom into an elite CB.
Pay the man and let's start building a secondary. Also, fuck the Jags.
3. Sign Cordarrelle Patterson
He's not a good wide receiver. However, he's a reliable kick returner and I feel like he could play the Harry Douglas role better than Harry Douglas could. He also could play some running back and add an interesting dimension for the Titans. He'll come cheap and most UT fans would love to have a former Vol on the team. Makes complete sense to bring him home.
4. Let Brandon Williams Get Paid Elsewhere
The Ravens were comfortable in letting Williams walk not because of skill, but becuase Michael Piece is ready to take over.
As you can see, he is a freak:
So Williams wasn't released because he is not good. He's a top 2 NT on the free agent board right now, but he's not the right fit for the Titans. As Brandon mentioned yesterday, Dontari Poe is the guy for us. I believe Poe would be a better fit for Dick's D and he's also 2 years younger than Williams.
