    Anyone agree that now that we have Wright who should be solid and catch plenty of passes we now need a legitimate threat like a Julio Jones or AJ Green to lead the offense.With doing that we give Locker weapons on offense because Nate Washington is getting older and of course Kenny Britt won't be here much longer due to his off the field issues.That leaves Kendall Wright,Damian Williams and Nate Washington this upcoming season.

    I imagine we will have Britt next season and we'll be fine with Britt-NaWash-KWright in 2013.

    I wouldn't mind going after Dwayne Bowe but I can understand his critics point of view as well.

    I think it's too early to tell on Britt. If it turns out he had any involvement whatsoever in the stabbing or the shots fired, I can't see any way we don't cut him. Dude's just had soooooo many chances.

    If we don't go after Bowe, I'd like to go after Wallace or Jennings. Those two will ask for a much higher pay check, but I believe they would be a safer choice as well.

    I don't think Green Bay lets Jennings go, but they might. That guy is a complete wide receiver and would do wonders for this offense.

    OP's post makes it sound like going out and finding a Julio Jones or an AJ Green is easy -- like it's something the Titans could easily do but they just haven't bothered to do it.

    Uh, no. Those WRs are two of the top 5 in the league. They are incredibly hard to get. Do you not remember what Atlanta had to give up?

    The Titans have WAY bigger needs.

    Without adequate blocking no WR will help us. O-Line is priority numero uno.

    Exactly,

    Which is what I mean by more and bigger needs. WR can't do much unless the QB can get him the ball. QB can't get him the ball without protection. Always starts with the OL.

    Jake's accuracy is an issue as well -
