Ty Montgomery is headed to the Ravens for a 7th round pick in 2020:[UPDATE 12:45]- The Lions have traded Golden Tate to the Eagles for a 3rd round pick:[UPDATE 12:44]- Titans “came in late” with an offer for Thomas.[UPDATE 12:05] Demaryius Thomas to the Texans. This one stings. Houston pulls off this deal to replace Will Fuller Tennessee Titans Womens Hoodie , who tore his ACL on Thursday against the Dolphins. [UPDATE 8:45]- Ian Rapoport says there is a better than 50/50 chance that the Broncos trade Thomas:The NFL trade deadline is today at 3 PM central time. We have heard from multiple people that this could be the most active trade deadline in a long time. I have visions of a baseball trade deadline type of day, but I know that isn’t realistic. The only thing I care about is the Titans adding a pass catcher that can actually come in and help them. There are rumored to be quite a few of those guys available- including (but not limited to) Golden Tate, DeSean Jackson, Demaryius Thomas and possibly Randall Cobb. All 4 of those guys could come in and help the Titans right away. We wrote about Tate here yesterday and DeSean here.We will use this thread to track the news, rumors and deals that we hear about today. Hit me up on Twitter (@jmorrisMCM) if you see anything that hasn’t been covered here. BRING US A PLAYMAKER JON! The Titans offense is still figuring things out. We all expected that side of the ball to lag behind the defense early on as Matt LaFleur’s new offense got broken in. Injuries to the Taylor Lewan, Jack Conklin, Dennis Kelly, Marcus Mariota, and Delanie Walker have exaggerated that learning curve.Through three weeks, we have really only seen snippets of the “real” Titans offense. Credit is due to the coaching staff for devising game plans that have resulted in wins despite having limited personnel at key spots, but it’s safe to say that 35 to 21 run to pass ratios like we saw in Jacksonville will be relatively rare when the team is healthier behind center. So while it’s hard to take too much away from what we’ve seen to this point Womens Customized Tennessee Titans Jerseys , there are some trends with the wide receivers that are worth considering. Totaling the numbers for each receiver through three weeks, this is what you get:Corey Davis: 163 snaps, 24 targets, 13 catches, 151 yards, and 0 touchdownsTaywan Taylor: 65 snaps, 10 targets, 8 catches, 62 yards, and 1 touchdownTajae Sharpe: 110 snaps, 6 targets www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com , 2 catches, 31 yards, and 0 touchdownsRishard Matthews: 95 snaps, 6 targets, 3 catches, 11 yards, and 0 touchdownsDavis is the clear WR1, but that’s not really a surprise. That’s what you would expect from him in his second season after being the No. 5 overall pick in 2017. He’s playing very well in all aspects of the game and I would expect the production to start to match as the offense gets more aggressive attacking down field. However, the WR2 spot seems to be up for grabs. Tajae Sharpe started the season with a 84% snap share in Miami, but dropped to 47% in Week 2 and 39% in Week 3. Matthews has seen his snaps staying pretty steady at 52% in Week 1, 47% in Week 2 Tennessee Titans T-Shirt , and 50% in Week 3. Matthews figured to be a virtual lock for that role heading in to the season, but his lack of production has been pretty shocking. He had easily been the Titans best receiver the last two seasons, posting a 65 catch, 945 yard, 9 TD stat line in 2016 and then a 53 catch, 795 yard, 4 TD line in 2017. Obviously, missing valuable time during training camp while rehabbing a torn meniscus has hurt him to some degree and this could certainly be a case of a guy playing his way in to shape, but Matthews just doesn’t look like himself out there. Speed was never his game, but to my eyes he just looks a step slow right now. Meanwhile, the player who has seen his opportunities rising is also the player that has been most productive. Taywan Taylor’s snaps have jumped from 13% in Week 1 to 41% in Week 2 to 52% in Week 3. Part of that could be game plan related as the Titans have leaned heavy on the short passing game against Houston and Jacksonville which plays to Taylor’s skill set Tennessee Titans Hats , but there is no doubt that he is making the most of his opportunities. Taylor could have had a really big play early against Jacksonville, but Gabbert sailed the pass high. Taylor was wide open and could have had a chance to score if the throw is catchable.Outside of that misfire, Titans QBs were 4 for 4 for 30 yards when throwing to Taylor on Sunday, including two big 3rd down conversions. Taylor’s speed and playmaking ability are dynamic and bring a big play threat to the field on any given snap. He was the WR2 with Davis for the majority of training camp before Sharpe suddenly passed him in the pecking order before preseason game No. 2. When Matthews returned, he slotted in above Taylor as well, but now momentum seems to have flipped. I would be surprised if we don’t see Taylor earn the second most receiver snaps for a second straight week this weekend. With Walker out, it is going to be crucial that the Titans find some production from at least one or two receivers not named Corey Davis. Taylor has clearly been the best of the group through three weeks and I would expect his playing time to continue to trend up in the weeks ahead. Tennessee will need more from Matthews and Sharpe than what it has gotten from them to this point, but Taylor’s play early in the season is very promising.
