Now that Keyshawn Johnson is set to enjoy a desk more than a football field, the Tennessee Titans may be turning their attention to another receiver to help out a core that can best be described as “weak” in the eyes of most around the NFL. Word is the Titans are considering bringing in former Bills and Texans wide out Eric Moulds for a workout. Last season, Moulds with the Texans caught 57 passes for 557 yards and one TD. He was the Bills number one pick in the draft back in 1996, and played 10 seasons there before going to Houston last season.
While with Buffalo, Moulds was a dangerous receiver, with 4 seasons of better than 1,000 yards. His best year came back in 2000, when he pulled in 94 catches for 1326 yards and 5 touchdowns. He was a disappointment with the Texans last season, and this past offseason they let him go. The Titans are in a bind in the wide out spot, as they were close to signing Johnson according to him, before he decided to hang it up and sign a deal with ESPN. Reports also say that the Titans are thinking about talking to the Jets about former Tennessee wide out Justin McCareins, who the Jets may be looking to deal.
McCareins caught just 23 passes last year in 16 games for 347 yards and one score. He played his first three years with the Titans, and had a solid 2003 season in which he caught 47 passes for 813 yards and 7 TD’s. In three years in New York, McCareins production has dropped each season, leading to the 23 catch season a year ago. Bottom line, the Titans need help at this position, and will look anywhere to get it.
