Tyler Boyd Signs With Titans

Tyler Boyd

The Titans appear to have their offense primed for Will Levis’ second season. Tyler Boyd, a former wide receiver with the Cincinnati Bengals, has joined the Titans’ receiving group. According to NFL Insider Jeremy Fowler, Boyd and the Titans have agreed on a one-year contract for up to $4.5 million.

In three-man formations, Boyd should line up as Will Levis’s slot wide receiver and become a dependable option for Levis. During his Bengals tenure, Boyd proved helpful to Joe Burrow by moving the chains in the short-to-medium areas of the field and catch passes underneath.

The Titans inked wide receiver Calvin Ridley as a free agent, paying him $92 million over four years. The Titans have created a team of misfits. Together, they will form an under-the-radar offense in 2024.

Currently, Gridiron Experts has Will Levis 27th in our QB Rankings. It’s really hard to justify putting him any higher at this point. Do I believe he can have a breakout season? – Yes, but I won’t put my neck on the line for it. Levis will be there late in your Fantasy drafts, possibly waiver wire add the first month of the season.

The Titans are an interesting team. As the AFC South gets better with every season, adding young talent, the Titans are keeping up with the pace. Hopkins (31), Ridley (29), and Boyd (29) aren’t the youngest receiver trio in the NFL, but I’m sure the plan is to allow their younger players Treylon Burks (24) and Kyle Philips (24) time to develop.

AFC South Odds

  • Texans +110
  • Jaguars +250
  • Colts +320
  • Titans +900

This division seems wide open in my opinion; all four teams have young quarterbacks and are building for the future. The Titans are taking a different approach by adding playmakers through free agency as opposed to the draft, but that’s only because they have spent the last two drafts selecting offensive linemen. JC Latham from Alabama was the Titans first-round pick in 2024. He is penciled in at Left Tackle next to Peter Skoronski, who made PFF’s all-rookie team.

However, according to Zoltán Buday of Pro Football Focus, the Titans’ offensive line as a whole landed at No. 32 in his end-of-year rankings after the unit finished last in pass-blocking efficiency and first in sacks allowed.

Goal: Fix Offensive Line

Titans Head Coach Bill Callahan says he has no concern about JC Latham transitioning from right tackle — where he played at Alabama — to the left side. He helped make similar transitional moves in Dallas. He also coached Jedrick Wills through the transition in Cleveland and made the switch with Barry Sims in Oakland two decades ago.

“As a coach, when you’re dealing with multiple factors, it’s important to build systems,” Callahan said. “Just like if you were building a computer, you’ve got the system, the windows, where you’re going to put your folders. I believe that you have to have organizational systems that you can explain and give to the players so they can package concepts and ideas and compartmentalize stuff so it’s very unique to them and can trigger them when they need it during games.”

At +900 the Titans are the dark horse team to steal the AFC South. There have been a lot of moving pieces, but it’s hard to overlook the talent.
