3. Did the Tennessee Titans see enough to buy from the Chicago Bears at the trade deadline?

The Tennessee Titans may be the toughest decision to see because the team was expected to be a seller just a few days ago. Still, they are now starting a rookie quarterback in Will Levis and he threw four touchdowns in a win against the Atlanta Falcons to save the Titans season.

With the excitement around Levis and a murky situation around the wild card spots in the AFC, the Titans have to think that they are staying competitive right now. This could force them to make a call for cornerback Jaylon Johnson. On the outside, the team has been working with Sean Murphy-Bunting and Kristian Fulton. Both have been up and down, but the big issue has been Fulton. Fulton has been banged up and trying to play through it, and has been downright bad.

The Titans can hope that he starts to get healthy and play better or do something about it. The key to adding Johnson is that he is not just a 2023 addition. You have to extend him, but at his age, he can become a player to build around for the future. The combination of keeping the Titans competitive but also helping their secondary in the long term is what makes them viable for Jaylon Johnson at the trade deadline.
