NASHVILLE – The Titans added a pair of receivers in the NFL Draft, and then another on Tuesday.
As of today, the team now has 12 receivers on the roster.
Let's take a quick look at how the position looks right now, keeping in mind more additions could still be coming:
A.J. Brown: He's the leader of the pack in Tennessee, and he's turning into one of the NFL's top receivers before our very eyes. In two seasons, Brown has 122 catches for 2,126 yards and 19 touchdowns. He already has nine 100-yard games. And there's reason to believe the best is yet to come.
Josh Reynolds: After losing Corey Davis, the Titans signed Reynolds, formerly of the Los Angeles Rams, back in March. Reynolds has played in 64 games, with 24 starts, working in the slot and on the outside his career. He's caught 113 passes for 1,450 yards and nine touchdowns in his career. Reynolds has craved a bigger role, and he figures to get that with the Titans.
In the Mix
Cameron Batson: The 5-foot-8, 175-pounder has proven to be scrappy during his time in Tennessee. Batson played in a career high 12 games in 2020, with one start, and he had a career-high 12 catches for 100 yards. He has 20 catches for 182 yards in his career. He's in line to compete for a bigger role in 2021.
Marcus Johnson: The 6-foot-1, 207-pound Johnson, re-signed by the team in March, has spent five seasons in the NFL after entering the league as an undrafted college free agent (Eagles) in 2016. Johnson has registered 42 receptions for 679 yards and three touchdowns in 34 games with the Eagles (2016-17) and Indianapolis (2018-20). In 2020 for the Colts, he played in 11 games and tallied 14 receptions for 255 yards.
Chester Rogers: The Titans signed Rogers to their practice squad in September 2020. Rogers entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Colts in 2016. In four seasons with the Colts, Rogers caught 111 passes for 1,221 yards and four touchdowns and returned 60 punt returns for a 9.2-yard average. Before joining the Titans, he had a stint with the Miami Dolphins.
Fred Brown: The Titans added Brown on Tuesday. Brown (6-1, 195), who played at Mississippi State, played in 14 games for the Broncos over the past two seasons, including one start. He had two catches for 21 yards, including a 16-yard reception, in those contests. He's also played on special teams, where he's tallied five tackles. Brown has also previously spent time with the Colts and Rams during his NFL career.
Nick Westbrook-Ikhine: Westbrook-Ikhine (6-2, 211) played in 14 games during the 2020 NFL season after joining the team as an undrafted free agent out of Indiana. He caught three passes for 33 yards last year, including one on a fake punt. He also had two catches for 17 yards in the team's playoff game vs the Ravens. Does he have promise? Yes. Does he still have a lot to prove? Yes.
Cody Hollister: The 6-foot-4, 216-pound receiver has played in seven games over the past two seasons with the Titans, and he's made three catches for 25 yards. He spent his first two NFL seasons a member of the New England Patriots — the first campaign on the practice squad and the second on injured reserve.
Rashard Davis: Davis has flashed in training camps, but his opportunities have been limited so far. The 5-foot-9-inch, 175-pounder was originally signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as a rookie free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft, and he's also spent time with the Raiders and Chiefs. After being waived eight times in his career, he made his first career catch in the team's season finale at Houston during the 2019 season.
Mason Kinsey: Kinsey, initially signed as an undrafted free agent in 2020, was released by the team after training camp. He then joined the practice squad of the New England Patriots. The 5-foot-10, 198-pound Kinsey appeared in 43 games with 35 starts over four seasons at Berry and totaled 203 receptions for 3,343 yards and 50 touchdowns, all of which rank first in program history. He started all 11 games as a senior in 2019 and caught 65 passes for 1,221 yards and 16 touchdowns.
