The Tennessee Titans made it official on Thursday, they will not be going after former Bills and Texans wide out Eric Moulds. Head coach Jeff Fisher indicated Thursday that despite his experience, which the Titans sorely need, Moulds is not in the Titans plans. Said offensive coordinator Norm Chow: “Yeah, it would be nice to get an older guy, but I don’t think we should get an older guy just to get an older guy. He has to be able to help.”
The current wide outs that Tennessee has on their roster caught 45 passes for 637 yards last year combined. One of those wide receivers, veteran David Givens, may not play at all this season because of a serious knee injury. Brandon Jones, Roydell Williams and Courtney Roby are all third-year pros on the roster. Fisher spoke about his somewhat obscure roster or pass catchers. “Go out there every day and show (the coaches and front office) that they don’t need to get this guy or that guy to make them better,” Young said. “Everybody has to sell papers and this and that, but from what I see these guys are getting better catching the ball and doing what they are supposed to do.”
The Titans are still looking to fill the void of former wide outs Drew Bennett and Bobby Wade, who left via free agency in the offseason. One player the team is counting on is Justin Gage, who the team signed from the Bears this past spring. The team will still keep their eyes open on the free agent market to see if any decent receivers get released due to salary cap reasons. For now, Moulds is still a man without a team.
