    I think he could replace swaim. Swaim is a vet also (7 years) but has shown very little by way of receiving but proves a good blocker. DW brings another receiving option at TE even if not the same level he used to be.

    It would be fun to see Delanie back, but free agents like Trey Burton or Jesse James likely provide more value at this point.

    I think Trey Burton is supremely underrated. He's a very good blocker and a decent weapon in the passing game. James seems like he was not utilized properly in Detroit. And that makes some sense because Stafford was never one to utilize his TE very often.

    Exactly and you get a guy for near the vet minimum who might also be willing to play STs. Walker is one of my favorite Titans of all time but he is 36 years old. Burton isn't a great fit IMO because he is more of a pass catcher. James is a nice sized TE that could be a nice fit but not sure how much of an upgrade he would be over all.

    I liked Jordan Leggett coming out of Clemson but he hasn't done much in the pros and might be one of those low effort guys. Seems like he could be someone you bring in to compete. Nice size and speed combo.

    DW had a really bad injury. Not sure he’d last 5 games and at best would only be 70% of what he was. Love the guy, but it’s time for him to consider life after playing.

    DW wants to play one or two more years and says he's back to about 95%. He's older, but he wants to play here, he lives here still. I think he'd take vet minimum and he'd be worth it at that price. Even if he's a #2 te and can only have a 30-40 catch type of season it's worth it.

    I want him to retire a Titan. If he will take the minimum, I am all on board, even if he doesnt produce.

    If he has 30-40 catches, then he is one of the best receivers the Titans have ever had.

    IF he’d be happy as depth, his intangibles would provide value to the locker room. His injury at his age really tough to recover. He may feel 95% but he’s more like 70% in measurables. Be good to find a place for him somewhere with the team.

    At best DW would add depth but I'm not sure he is as good as Firkser as a receiver right now nor is he a better blocker than Swaim. If we have an injury in the pre-season he might make sense.
