Titans signed WR Eric Decker, formerly of the Jets, to a one-year contract.

The Jets continued their roster purge by dumping Decker last week. After fielding a relatively weak group last season, the Titans have beefed up their receiving corps this offseason by drafting Western Michigan standout Corey Davis with the fifth overall pick and now by scooping up Decker. Hip and shoulder issues limited Decker to just three games in 2016 but he's now at full health and should give Marcus Mariota another big body to throw to inside the red zone. The Titans are suddenly flush with pass-catchers with Decker, Davis, Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker all slated for important roles.


I don't think I was a part of it, but I could understand the bashing the Titans coaching staff received - especially for their offensive terminology.

Their big obstacle is to actually get their roster to perform and get to the playoff. But so far, I think they have done a really, really good job at putting together a roster which should be competitive and they really helped their young QB in a much better way than many other franchises - our own included, have done and should have.

Humphrey might find himself matched up with a wide receiver in the slot on occasion this season. However, that certainly won’t be by design, according to defensive coordinator Dean Pees.

“They all can play in the slot,” Pees said last week during the Ravens’ mandatory minicamp. “There are times where we play ‘corners over,’ and the corner ends up playing on an inside receiver, which really is a slot receiver. That being said, we really like him as an outside guy.”


Quote:
Humphrey said that at Alabama he played inside at times during practice but never in a game. With the Ravens, Humphrey worked almost exclusively on the outside during organized team activities and last week’s minicamp. That doesn’t figure to change much in training camp.


No surprise there. So the defense is going to have Webb, Boykin, or Canady practically starting in the slot. Sad

Well if Humphrey does earn a starting role, then Carr is in the mix too.

Quote:
“I really, in some ways, especially as a rookie, would rather them sit in at one position and learn that position instead of trying to move them all over the place and them get kind of about half the reps here and half the reps here,” Pees said.

Carr isn't playing in the slot. C'mon now. Humphrey isn't starting this year either, outside of injuries. He has a ways to go to develop instinctually and technically.
