How bad is the Titans WR depth?

Jared Wickerham

The Titans need to find an answer quickly.

The Tennessee Titans have a very talented trio of wide receivers at the top of their depth chart. Justin Hunter is a prototypical #1 that all defenses should fear every snap. Nate Washington is a savvy veteran that can play all over the field and has the toughness you love from a leader. Kendall Wright is quickly becoming one of the best young receivers in the league and Whizenhunt should add a new dimension to his game this year.

However, tweets like this make me realize just how paper thin the Titans wide receiver depth is behind those three:


Maybe Hagan had a great day and turned some heads, however I still think that this is bad news for the Titans. Michael Preston is a favorite of mine, but he isn't as quick as he needs to be and (while he will make the roster) I have a hard time seeing him as anything other than a goal line/short down receiver.

Marc Mariani is the other real contender for this job. Shawn Jefferson must have seen something he liked, or else Mariani likely would be looking for other work given that his spot as a kick and punt returner has likely been filled.

The Titans could look to fill the need in free agency, but if not someone will have to step up and I'm not sure I like those odds.
