Titans Add WR Walter; Now What?

 

With the addition of WR Kevin Walter to the Titans, it really makes me wonder what moves are coming in the near future. Here are a couple of questions I have that will be answered this month.

What will the Titans do in the draft?

It is now looking like the Titans will go ahead and take the best available offensive lineman with their first round pick. I had stated earlier that I thought the Titans might get creative with their pick and possibly take WR Cordarrelle Patterson if he made it to them. Now that Walter has been signed, I do not see this happening. They will most likely take a RB at some point in time in the draft as well.

Does this mean a WR will be cut?

I do not see how a WR does not get cut from this team. I doubt the Titans are ready to give up on Kenny Britt, and they just drafted Kendall Wright last year with their first round pick. The Titans didn’t sign Walter to cut him, so that most likely means that Nate Washington is the odd man out. He is scheduled to make $4.2 million this year which the Titans could use to sign their draft picks. It would be a shame to see him get cut after seeing what he has done for the franchise, but lets face it, we have seen the Titans do this many times to players that have been great to them. It is just part of the business.

Is this Locker’s last chance?

My guess is yes. If we do not see major improvement this year then the Titans will most likely look somewhere else. This will hands down be the best team they have given Locker, and he has weapons around him that can make plays along with a MUCH better offensive line.

Is this CJ’s last year as a Titan?

This will depend on his production this year. Shonn Greene was not added to the roster just to touch the ball twice a game. Coach Munchak said if Shonn is and there and is producing, then he is going to stay in. This will not sit well with CJ. I can definitely see some controversy in the future if Chris Johnson is not getting the ball as much as he wants. The Titans could opt out of CJ’s contract after this year and stick with Greene who would cost less than half of what they were paying Johnson.
