3 Free Agents Titans Need to Sign to Make a Super Bowl Run Next Year
The AFC's No. 1 seed Tennessee Titans were sent home with a Divisional Round loss at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals. Even though their season went better than most teams, two straight years without a playoff win has left a sour taste in a lot of fans' mouths.
The Titans must use the offseason to improve their team if they want to make it to their first Super Bowl in over two decades next season. While they can get help at the 2022 NFL Draft, this year's class of free agents seems likelier to solve their problems.
Here's a look at three free agents the Titans need to sign to make a Super Bowl run in 2023.
Titans Free Agent Targets
1. Zach Ertz, TE
Anthony Firkser and Geoff Swaim handled the Titans' tight end duties this season, however, neither man really stood out offensively. That's why Tennessee should target a veteran TE like Zach Ertz. The 31-year-old looked reinvigorated after the Philadelphia Eagles traded him to the Arizona Cardinals mid-season, tallying 56 receptions for 574 receiving yards and three touchdowns in 11 games with his new team. He also brings a Super Bowl ring with him, proving that he has what it takes to go all the way. That's the type of player who could be a positive influence on the Titans' locker room and help take things to the next level.
2. A.J. Green, WR
Outside of A.J. Brown, none of Tennessee's wide receivers stood out consistently this season. Julio Jones' first season with the team was a bust and the Titans may want to consider bringing in another reliable wideout. A.J. Green could be that guy, especially if he's willing to take a veteran discount if it means a shot at a Super Bowl ring. The 11th-year vet posted a 54-848-3 stat line this season, indicating that he still has enough left in the tank to play like a No. 2/3 WR on a contender like the Titans.
3. Quandre Diggs, SS
While the Titans had one of the best run defenses in the NFL this season, their secondary left a lot to be desired. Making a splash by signing a strong safety like Quandre Diggs would go a long way in addressing that issue. He might cost a lot, but the Titans have the means to move contracts out to free up the space. Diggs had seven passes defended, five interceptions and a 63.4 passer rating last season while allowing just one touchdown. If the Titans think he's the missing piece to help round out their defense, he's worth the gamble.
