Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Titans could still be willing to trade their No. 2 overall pick.
However, the price will be high for a team to move into position to get one of the top two quarterbacks in this year’s draft class.
According to Rapoport, the Browns, Rams and Chargers are the three teams with the best chances trading up to No. 2 overall.
Recent reports have said that the Chargers do not appear to be willing to trade QB Philip Rivers at this point in time, which would all but rule them out of making the move up to No. 2. There are, of course, other obstacles with this trade like the fact that Rivers is in the final year of his contract and would need to sign a new extension with the Titans to justify a trade.
While the Browns and Rams are reportedly interested, Conor Orr of NFL.com points out that neither of them has a quarterback to send to the Titans as part of this deal.
There have been rumors that the Browns could get creative by having the Eagles get involved in a three-team trade that would send Sam Bradford to Cleveland with Philadelphia moving up to No. 2 overall. But this scenario wouldn’t give the Titans another quarterback to go along with Zach Mettenberger.
Peter King of MMQB reports that the Titans would like to receive an offer for the No. 2 overall and they aren’t married to picking anyone right now.
However, King does not believe the Titans have received a formal offer as of now.
“Tuesday or Wednesday is when those calls are made, the serious calls,” one GM tells King.
King adds that “the Titans, though they feel good about Zach Mettenberger, would feel better about [Marcus] Mariota.”
