The Titans are stacking up on Super Bowl experience
The Titans continued to add veteran leadership to their young roster with the signing of Eric Decker. Personally, I’m not as high on the signing of Decker as some are—he’s coming off of two injuries that at one time were considered “career-threatening”. That being said it is a low risk/high reward move–and Titans GM Jon Robinson has not done anything that would make me question his moves.
Robinson however, isn’t just signing veterans to fill out his roster, he’s signing players who know what it takes to make a postseason run, capped off by a Super Bowl.
Decker became the fourth free agent with Super Bowl experience to sign with the Titans this offseason, joining cornerback Logan Ryan, nose tackle Sylvester Williams and wide receiver Eric Weems.
“My foundation was kind of built on the grit, just the ‘do whatever you’ve got to do to help the team,’” Decker told the team’s website, via Jason Wolf of The Tennessean. “That’s so important to me. When I was in Denver, I saw what the culture was like to get to a Super Bowl, and it took, it was kind of unselfishness, everyone doing what their role was, not wanting to be the ‘me guy’ but be the ‘team guy.’”
The Titans are hoping that Super Bowl experience rubs off on the rest of their roster. Their only Super Bowl appearance came in XXXIV to end the 1999 season.
With a young nucleus of stars to go with a veteran group who knows how to win should equal a playoff appearance at the least—or disappointment will run rampant in Tennessee.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/the-titans-are-stacking-up-on-super-bowl-experience/https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/robinson600-042816a.jpg?fit=580%2C326&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/robinson600-042816a.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1AFC SouthNFLRecent PostsTennessee TitansNFL,Super Bowl,Tennessee Titans,TitansThe Titans continued to add veteran leadership to their young roster with the signing of Eric Decker.
