Las Vegas Raiders 2022 opponent offseason review: Tennessee Titans
After the offseason that was for wide receivers across the NFL, including the Las Vegas Raiders own Davante Adams getting a massive contract, now former Tennessee Titans Wide Receiver AJ Brown started demanding a contract extension worth more than $20 million dollars a year.
Well, he did get that sort of contract, not with the Titans but with the Philadelphia Eagles after a trade during the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Tennessee received the 18th and 101st overall picks and then used that extra first round pick to draft a eventual replacement in Treylon Burks out of Arkansas.
The Titans also brought in former Rams wide receiver Robert Woods prior to the Brown trade. Woods tore his ACL last season in practice on the same day that the Rams made the signing of Odell Beckham Jr official. In his Rams career, Woods have 570 receptions 707,7 yards, and 35 touchdowns.
He now has to be the leader of that wide receiver room with the losses of AJ Brown and Julio Jones.
The Titans also are making some offensive line changes, only bringing back three of their five starters after cutting left guard Rodger Saffold, and not bringing back last season’s starting Right Tackle David Quessenberry. There will be a competition at both of those positions including newly signed Jamarco Jones, and last season’s round draft pick Dillion Radunz
Lastly, the Titans brought in former Falcons and Browns tight end, Austin Hooper. Hooper struggled to get back to his Falcons form in his seasons with the Browns and has been allegedly very impressive in OTA’s and mini camps for the Titans.
Hooper had signed a four year $42 million dollar deal with the Browns in 2020 only to be released two years later after only combining for 84 receptions and 780 yards and seven touchdowns in his two seasons with the team.
