Mike Reiss of ESPN wonders if former Eagles and 49ers HC Chip Kelly could be an option for the Patriots to fill their TEs coach vacancy.
Although Paul Kuharsky of ESPN writes that the Titans may be comfortable continuing with ILB Avery Williamson, he thinks Tennessee should still try to add a “big-time, three-down” inside linebacker.
Kuharsky mentions Alabama’s Reuben Foster as a dynamic linebacker that the Titans should consider. However, the No. 5 overall pick may be too early to draft him, making him a possible trade-down candidate.
Patriots ILB Dont’a Hightower would be a high-scale free agent for the Titans to consider, but Kuharsky believes the Patriots will find a way to re-sign him. Other possible free agent candidates could include the Broncos’ Todd Davis, Cardinals’ Kevin Minter and the Redskins’ Will Compton.
If the Titans decide to move forward with Williamson, Kuharsky believes Tennessee must improve their nickel linebacker role since LB Sean Spence performed inconsistently throughout 2016.
Kuharsky does not think selecting LSU S Jamal Adams at No. 5 overall would prevent Tennessee from drafting as many as two cornerbacks, despite not owning a second-round pick.
