NASHVILLE – It's been a tough week in Nashville.
Keep praying for all the families impacted by the tragic events here, and I appreciate all the kind words from afar.
Let's get right into this weekend's Titans mailbag.

Casey Sells from Winchester, Tennessee
Question: Do you think the Titans will draft another Tight End this year and if so are they looking for more of a blocking Tight End to pair with Chig or another receiving Tight End or a Tight End that can do both? I'm a Nebraska Cornhusker fan and we have a Tight End named Travis Vokolek that was pretty decent at both and another one named Chancellor Brewington that was a good blocker coming across the formation and a decent pass catcher also. Thank you for answering my question.
Jim: Hey Casey. Well, not sure if you've seen this yet, but the Titans signed former Bears and Jets tight end Trevon Wesco on Friday. Here's the story on that move: CLICK HERE. Wesco is regarded as a solid blocker, and I suspect he'll take over the role previously held by Geoff Swaim. More help is needed at the position, so we'll see what happens from here.
Eric Koehler from Las Vegas, Nevada
Question: Thanks for taking the time to answer questions from the fans! My favorite Titan of all time is Jevon Kearse. I love strong defenses. If, and it's a big if, Jalen Carter falls to 11 do you think the Titans would draft him? The thought of Landry, Big Jeff, Autry, Tart, Key, and Carter as a rotational front 4 is so exciting. Opposing quarterbacks would be running for their lives. Plus I think Jeffrey Simmons could be a good mentor for him considering both have been in similar situations where people were questioning their character. Again, appreciate all you do for the fans.
Jim: Hey Eric. I've gotten this question a few times. It's a tough one to answer. Yes, it's an intriguing thought. But some deep conversations would need to be had, and not sure they've happened yet. I've already read this week the Raiders have reportedly taken him off their draft board. Plus, the Titans have bigger needs…
Neil Carr from Bingley, England, United Kingdom
Question: Hi Jim. A first timer from the UK here.
It's a fairly straight forward question really - as Titans fans, do we need to be at all concerned at the lack of free agency moves in comparison to other teams? I understand free agency is just one part of building a squad but it just appears that other teams appear to be getting stronger (if you believe in who that team have acquired of course) while some teams (ours) do not appear to be! The WR corps is worrying, and I cannot see much out there unless we go for Hopkins for example, but would he want to come to a heavy run first team? Just wondered if you were at all worried about the lack of free agency action?
Jim: Hey Neil. I don't necessarily agree that there's been a lack of free agency moves. While I understand some of the moves haven't included household names, the team has already signed seven new free agents (OL Andre Dilliard, LB Azeez Al-Shaair, Edge Arden Key, OL Daniel Brunskill, CB Sean Murphy-Bunting, LB Luke Gifford and TE Trevon Wesco) and it's just now April 1. We need to see how some of these moves pan out. I do agree more help is needed at receiver, and the team is far from complete.
Brett Heard from Nashville, Tennessee
Question: I'm very proud of the Titans players, coaches and staff that went to the vigil downtown. They could just have easily done nothing or anything else with their time and I'm proud that this is the organization that my family chooses to spend their money with and spend so much time following.
Jim: I thought it was a nice gesture by the organization as well. It wasn't done for attention; it was done to pay respect to those impacted by what happened here this week, which was sickening. It's been a sad week in Nashville.
Kash Tucker from Evergreen, Colorado
Question: Dear Jim Wyatt. Hello, my name is Kash Tucker I am 12 years old. I am the world's biggest Titans fan in the world. I was wondering why are the Titans not looking at Lamar Jackson. I mean we've all seen the tapes about him smashing everyone's ankles against the Bengals. He is a huge playmaker. Also, he can give us a shot at our first Super bowl. We can't just let Derrick Henry keep on carrying his team to victory. Hopefully can get this and I know you will make the right choice. Go Titans and TITAN UP! Sincerely, Kash Tucker.
Jim: Hi Kash! Good to hear from you! Lamar Jackson is quite a playmaker, but he'd also come with a huge price tag and it would cost two first-round picks to get him. … Have a great day!
Scott Weaver from Brownsville, Pennsylvania
Question: Hi Jim have not posted in a while, hope all is well with you. First I want to thank you for all you do for fans on here much appreciated. I here all this Lamar Jackson talk and I truly hope the Titans do not pursue him, I get a lot of folks get excited about his athletic ability, but he has not shown that he is a consistent passer, and yea he has had his moments but he is not in the caliber of Mahomes, Burrow, Allen or even Jalen Hurts so what they would have to give in a trade plus financial compensation to me is way too much for a one trick pony who now has injury concerns and we as Titan fans know all too well about the injuries for this team don't we. And here is food for thought: Who has won more playoff games - Jackson or Tannehill? What I hope for is for the team to go all in on a QB in the 24 draft I believe that Caleb Williams and Drake Maye are better QB prospects than the 23 class. Only time will tell what happens, but please Titans don't make a mistake and mortgage your future away. Oilers/Titans fan since 88.
Jim: Thanks for weighing in, Scott. Lamar is definitely one of those guys who generates all kinds opinions, as we've seen in back-to-back emails.
Vince Fahey from Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Question: How did it feel getting fleeced by Howie for AJ Brown?
Jim: How did it feel to get fleeced by Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl? Oh wait, I think Mahomes just threw another touchdown...
Joe Pittard from Woodbury, Tennessee
Question: What would George Kittle of the 49ers be in town for, having his picture made?
Jim: George Kittle has a home in Nashville and spends a good chunk of his offseason in town.
Clint Richie from Medford, Oregon
Question: Hey, Jim! I'm wondering if you've wandered down the rabbit hole that is Mock Draft Simulators. It's great fun and a great way to waste time! My favorite is run by Pro Football Network, but Pro Football Focus also has a good one. With football entering into the loathsome period where all we hear for a month are the same talking heads nitpicking every potential draft pick, these draft simulators can break up the monotony. Have a great day!
Jim: Hey Clint. I haven't, but I know of a ton of folks who have.
Adrian Lopez from Caracas, Venezuela
Question: Hey Jim c�mo vas... Envi�ndole toda mi solidaridad y apoyo a todos en la ciudad y esperando que no sucedan nunca m�s estos hechos violentos en Nashville ni en ning�n sitio del mundo. Mis preguntas est� semana son: Si los Titans redactan a Richardson se le da un cr�dito a Tannehill por un a�o y abre una salida para Willis??? Tu evaluaci�n personal de Willis m�s all� de que necesite m�s trabajo para desarrollarse es positiva o por el contrario no cumpli� con las expectativas del equipo a esta altura??? Gracias cu�date mucho...
Jim: Gracias por las condolencias, Adrián. No voy a entrar en los hipotéticos en la posición de mariscal de campo. Si el equipo reclutara a un QB en el No. 11, cambiaría muchas cosas. Tendremos que esperar y ver qué pasa. En cuanto a Willis, necesita muchas mejoras. Se suponía que no jugaría hasta 2024, y demostró por qué el año pasado.
Rick Pinkerton from Terryville, Connecticut
Question: Jim, just one question. Does Amy get involved with all the dealings of the players? Does she have a voice or final say on who stays and who goes? Thanks, keep up the great work
Jim: Hi Rick. Well, Amy lets the folks she hires to do their jobs. With that said, she's the boss and she's involved in the big decisions.
Peter Sloan from Missouri
Question: Hey, J.W. hope all is well with you. The service you provide all of us Titans fans is much appreciated, thanks and keep up the good work. I'm so glad to see the switch to Seat Geek.
TicketMaster is the worst organization to deal with that I have ever experienced. I could literally write a book about my experience with them, all bad, but I won't. My question is are there any other fans that feel the same way and are they speaking out?Also what do you think about the switch and what info can you give us. Boy am I happy to see this change. Being a season ticket holder since the Titans came to town I truly believe that this will improve the whole Titans experience. Best always Jim, GO TITANS.
Jim: This is the only email I've received on this subject, Peter.
Steven Crosio from Brick, New Jersey
Question: Hey there Jim, who's most likely to wear No. 0 now that No. 0 Jerseys exist in the NFL?
Have a great weekend everyone!
