The Titans added Pro Bowl kick returner Dexter McCluster to break open a few plays for the offense that ranked in the bottom half of yards and points last year.
The Titans hired Ken Whisenhunt to try and bring the team to their first playoff berth since 2008. But after releasing several Pro Bowlers and long-time starters, such as Chris Johnson and Alterraun Verner, the depth of the team at skill positions is in question.
WR Dexter McCluster, OT Michael Oher, OLB Shaun Phillips, QB Charlie Whitehurst, MLB Wesley Woodyard
A look at each player:
McCluster was a Pro Bowl kick returner for the Chiefs in 2013 but adds versatility in the rushing and receiving game as a threat out of the backfield or on a long pass. He will be a backup WR and will compete for return duties with Leon Washington.
Oher is an experienced Offensive Tackle who played both positions in Baltimore. He will provide depth for the Titans as the backup to first-round draft pick Taylor Lewan.
Phillips is a pass-rushing OLB who recorded 10.0 sacks for the Broncos in 2013. While he does not have a reputation for being a great tackler, his speed, even in his early 30s, will make him an effective LB for the Titans.
Whitehurst has been a backup QB since 2006. He has not thrown a pass since 2011 but will be the primary backup to QB Jake Locker.
Woodyard started 24 games in the last two years for the Broncos, accumulating over 200 tackles, 7.0 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles in that time. He will be the Titans new starter at ILB alongside Zach Brown.
While the Titans managed to get several skills players, some depth and a pair of starters, they failed to address the positions that were weakened in the free agency period and enter 2014 with significant holes.
