The Tennessee Titans are rolling after winning four straight games, surging to the top of the AFC South at 4-2. They're not taking their recent success for granted, however, and are still looking to improve.

The Titans made a move to bolster their receiving corps on Tuesday by stealing a player from the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad.

Tennessee added wide receiver Chris Conley, who opened the year with the Houston Texans before moving on to Kansas City.

Conley, 30, did not play in any games for the Chiefs this season but did get into a pair of games for the Texans. He didn't make much of an impact, however, failing to haul in either of his 2 targets.

While he's yet to get untracked in 2022, Conley is a proven pass-catcher with a solid NFL career up to this point. Since debuting in 2015, he's amassed 213 catches on 360 targets for 2,807 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns.

With a lack of reliable receiving options for Ryan Tannehill, the Titans could use a player like Conley. Hopefully he'll be able to carve out more of a role in Tennessee's offense with less competition for targets and prove that he still has something left in the tank.

The Titans will look to extend their winning streak with a victory over the Texans in Week 8. Perhaps Conley can provide some intel on his old team for Tennessee, which is favored by 1.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
