He is spot-on with his thoughts.
Kenny Britt is out for the season with a torn ACL. His production has been extremely high when he has been able to stay on the field. That has been the problem, though.
With Britt in and out of the lineup for the past couple of seasons, Tennessee could really use a stable wide receiver to help quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. Let’s face it—he needs it.
Nate Washington isn’t enough to keep Hasselbeck satisfied, and he shouldn’t be, either. Running back Chris Johnson is second (with Britt out) on the team with 18 receptions. The next wide receiver is Lavelle Hawkins with 11.
Washington isn’t a No. 1 wide receiver in the NFL. The highest reception total he has achieved in his seven-year career has been 47 in 2009, his first year with the Titans.
Bowe would give Hasselbeck a true No. 1 option. Bowe has 23 receptions for 420 yards and four touchdowns in 2011.
Bowe caught 15 touchdown passes in 2010 on 72 receptions. The most receptions he has achieved in a season is 86, in 2008.
If Hasselbeck can stay healthy and Johnson can get back on track, Tennessee has a chance of making the postseason.
Making this move would make the Titans a legitimate contender in the division.
