Who Was the Best Offseason Acquistion for Tennessee Titans?
The Tennessee Titans made it clear early on this offseason, that they weren’t screwing around. With plenty of cap space to make moves and acquire talent, the Titans did just that. Now, they sit with a much improved roster, and ready to compete for a playoff spot in the AFC. But with all of the good moves this offseason, which was the best?
There’s a pretty good list of solid acquisitions for the Titans – Bernard Pollard, Shonn Greene, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Delanie Walker. But I think the best signing came in the form of guard Andy Levitre.
Now granted, Levitre’s career with the Titans is not off to a great start. He’s still being bothered by a knee he had arthroscopic surgery on at some point in the recent past, but with Levitre, it’s all about the future. This is a guy Tennessee can build around for a long time.
The offensive line was in need of some serious upgrading, and with a hall of game guard for a coach, it’s only natural the Titans should have premier players at that position.
In addition, the Titans added first round draft pick Chance Warmack to pair with Levitre, and now there sitting in much better shape. They’ve got one of the best backfields in the game, but it wouldn’t matter if the line in front of them was no good. The additions of Levitre and Warmack were huge for Tennessee, because it will simply make all aspects of the offense better.
Jake Locker should be able to say upright and have more time to throw and progress as a passer, while Greene and Chris Johnson will have truck-wide holes to run through. That’s why Levitre was the best offseason acquisition for the Titans.
