NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Before they restock the roster with a draft class, the Tennessee Titans are adding some depth, competition and insurance.
This week it was right tackle Byron Bell who got a one-year deal. He’ll have a shot to win the job, but will probably have to beat out a draft pick and will be in a competition to simply ensure he’s on the team.
Today, the one-year deal is for receiver Hakeem Nicks.
Like Bell, Nicks qualifies as somewhat of a a reclamation project.
The Titans are still thin at receiver.
They hope Nicks will upgrade the core and bring enhanced competition at a position where the Titans lacked sufficient depth and dynamism last season.
