Titans position group that has the most riding on training camp.
Tomorrow, July 23rd training camp is set to start for the Titans. It has been a long time coming for us NFL fans, and finally it seems like things are beginning to come together for the season. Of course, there will be plenty of guidelines put in place to insure player safety. One, which is the most heartbreaking, is that fans will not be allowed to attend camp. That was expected, but fortunately, 10 people will be granted media access so we won’t be completely in the dark.
As fans, we will be on the outside looking in, and there are plenty of questions that we need answered. We’ve been without football for what seems like ages, so it will be fun to watch everything develop as we close in on the 2020 season.
There is one position group for the Titans that I am most interested in watching in camp. That is the Tennessee Titans wide receivers.
What’s in it for the Titans WRs in training camp?
The top three wideouts for the team are pretty much set. There is no argument against AJ Brown, he has the tools to be an all time great for the Titans. Corey Davis will be a good number two, and hopefully the team can bring him back again on a good deal. Adam Humphries has a lot to prove. His $9.875 million cap hit is pretty hefty for a WR3, and last season he didn’t do a whole lot to prove that he is worth it. He needs to show up in 2020 or else he will be in danger of being cut next offseason with only $5 million in dead cap.
After the top 3, Khalif Raymond seems like the favorite for WR4. He’s small and fast and he is a great route runner. Tajae Sharp did a fantastic job in the role last season. Raymond needs to impress in camp to prove some doubters wrong. He is capable of filling the role, but if injuries start to hit the Titans WR corps things might get messy.
Now, you’re left with Cameron Batson, Cody Hollister, Trevion Thompson, Rashard Davis, and a bunch of UDFA.
This is where a lot is on the line for the wide receivers. These guys towards the bottom of the depth chart don’t have as much time as they normally would to impress. In addition to that, there are no preseason games. If they are giving the coaches any reason to doubt the depth at the position a veteran will likely be brought in.
Titans UDFA wide receivers
The undrafted free agents show tons of potential. Mason Kinsey is a hard worker from a division 3 school. He could be favorite of the UDFAs to make the roster. Kristian Wilkerson from Southeast Missouri is another favorite of mine. These guys have little time to work with. All of the Titans wideouts are going to have a lot riding on this strange training camp.
