I hate this part of football. Perrish Cox had such a bright start for the Titans and I thought he made up for a lot of mistakes on the back end last year. He broke up some passes and had some turnovers and looked like he really could be a good CB2.
Unfortunately, this year he just has had a tough, tough stretch. Maybe he is injured, maybe he isn’t getting coached well or maybe he just isn’t a great fit for this team. Delanie Walker Jersey Whatever the issue was, it was definitely a problem for this team.

With that move, the Tennessee Titans 2018 cap space moves from $44. 9 million to $49. 9 million according to OTC.
So, here is the quick run down on Kalan Reed. He had 23 pass breakups during his final year at Southern Miss and had 4 interceptions to go with that. He drew rave reviews from coaches.
Pro Football Focus rated him as a 2nd round prospect, saying:
Many of the players that grade very well at PFF simply don’t t the size and speed pro level the NFL covets at corner and so aren’t even on the radar of many teams. Reed is different. Tennessee Titans NFL Jersey He checks every box from a physical standpoint, and this past season had tape to rival any corner in this class. He may have some competition questions to answer having played at Southern Mississippi, but you can only play what is in front of you, and this season Reed allowed only 48. 3 percent of passes thrown his way to be caught. “

One of my favorite draft follows Jim Cobern had him graded as a very good starter” caliber player. Tennessee Titans Jersey Online Which is pretty elite company, less than 50 of the 327 players he graded made it to that level or better.
So, the future could be bright with Kalan Reed, and he isn’t just a guy. While he may not end up being CB1 or even CB2, he could show that he can be CB3 or CB4 and also be a good special teams guy.
Get excited, at least a little bit, that there might be something exciting happening at CB.
