Tennessee Titans to sign Harry Douglas

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Adam Schefter first reported, and Jim Wyatt confirmed, that the Titans are signing Harry Douglas to a 3-year deal.  Douglas visited the team last week.  The connection makes sense because the Titans are desperate for help at receiver, and Douglas is familiar with Mike Mularkey from their time together in Atlanta.

Look, Douglas is not a guy that is a game changer, but he can fill the role that Nate Washington had here for the past few years.  He is a good rotation guy that might currently be the best receiver on the roster.  Kendall Wright has more potential but hasn't put up the numbers yet.

The Titans shouldn't be done trying to add receivers.  They need a couple more guys that can come in and compete for the 2nd and 3rd spot.

Here is what Dave Choate of The Falcoholic had to say about Douglas back when it was announced that Douglas was visiting the team:

Douglas is a solid wide receiver who can be very productive when he's frequently targeted. He has deceptive speed, he's excellent on the sidelines and he has good hands, but sometimes he struggle in the spotlight a bit and he's not much of a red zone threat at all, with just eight touchdowns in seven years.

If he's your #3 wide receiver, he's a quality player who can be a real asset to a passing game. If you're relying on him to be a #1 or #2 wide receiver, he's probably stretched.
