State of the Titans roster: Wide receivers

FACT: It is a make or break year for Kenny Britt.

Frederick Breedon

The Titans might have the best group of receivers right now that they have had since they moved to Tennessee. The only group that might have been better was Derrick Mason, Drew Bennett and Justin McCareins for one season. With that being said, there are still a lot of question marks surrounding the position.

The biggest question mark, obviously is Kenny Britt. At his best he has the ability to be one of the best receivers in the game. At his worst he is a non-factor that is a headache off the field. To me, the biggest concern right now is the health of his legs. He has got to find a way to get his legs right if he is going to be a factor for this team in 2013.

Britt will be a free agent after the season. There is no shot the Titans are going to sign him to a long-term deal after everything that has gone on, but you better believe they will slap the franchise tag on him after next season if he has a good year.

Nate Washington is one of few players that I can remember that has gone from one of the players I hated the most on the Titans to one of the players I like the most. He was so bad his first year but has developed into the most consistent receiver on the team.

Kendall Wright had a nice rookie year, but he didn't take the top off of defenses like I hoped he would in 2012. The Titans drafted him to be a deep threat, and they need to get him more into that role in 2013. A 5'10 possession receiver isn't very valuable in this league.

Then there is Damian Williams, Lavelle Hawkins and Marc Mariani.
