2. The wide receiver group is sneaky good

Everyone around the NFL understands that the Titans offense is predicated on running the football. That isn’t a product of lack of talent at the receiver position. The group of wideouts available to catch passes from Tannehill actually has a lot of talent and upside.

A.J. Brown exceeded everyone’s expectations as a rookie. The team rightly expects him to increase last year’s production of 52 catches for 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns. His ability to take the top off the opposing defense as a deep threat creates a ton of room for his teammates.

Corey Davis may not be in the team’s long-term plans, but the former first round pick still has a ton of talent at his disposal. This could easily be the year he puts it all together. If that happens, the Titans could have one fo the top receiving duos in the entire NFL.

Last, but certainly not least, the team believes Adam Humphries has the talent to become a real weapon out of the slot. His big free agency contract looks like a significant overpay at this point, but he’s a strong bet to experience some sort of bounceback season in 2020. When you look at this group in total it’s clear they have the ability to elevate their quarterback.
