What position will Taywan Taylor play in the new offense?

We have all assumed that Taywan Taylor will spend the majority of his time as the slot receiver. That’s what he primarily did last year [b][url=http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/austin-johnson-jersey]Authentic Austin Johnson Jersey[/url][/b] , and he seems to fit the perfect mold of a slot a receiver. However, I am starting to believe that may not be the case.I was listening to the Rotoworld Football Podcast yesterday, and Trevor’s favorite fantasy football analyst, Evan Silva, mentioned that he heard Dan Orlovsky (for more on why you should be listening to what Orlovsky says, bang it here) say that Taylor could actually play the “clear out” role that Sammy Watkins played last year for the Rams. If you think about it [b][url=http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/brett-kern-jersey]Womens Brett Kern Jersey[/url][/b] , it makes sense because Taylor is the only receiver on the team that has that top end speed you are looking for in that spot.Taylor actually logged the most snaps with the first team offense in yesterday’s training camp practice according to Travis May:As May mentions, that is due in part to the fact that Rishard Matthews is still recovering form the most mysterious injury in the history of sports and wasn’t practicing, but if they wanted Taylor to play in the slot and not outside, they could have given those reps to Tajae Sharpe.There is something that is so fun about not knowing much about the new offense.

What do you think is the best role for Taywan in this new offense? “To rise from the ashes, a phoenix must first burn.” - Octavia E. ButlerThe quote, ironically from another Butler [b][url=http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/taylor-lewan-jersey]http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/taylor-lewan-jersey[/url][/b] , fits very nicely with Malcolm Butler’s career. The hero in the Super Bowl against the Seahawks, Butler burst onto the scene as one of the better CBs in the NFL. Soon after, our Icarus flew too close to the sun that was Bill Belichick and the wax on his wings melted, and he came crashing down, missing the Super Bowl against the Eagles. Malcolm now joins the Titans, hungry to prove the doubters wrong [b][url=http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/wesley-woodyard-jersey]http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/wesley-woodyard-jersey[/url][/b] , to show that Bill made a fatal mistake in not only benching him in the Super Bowl, but to let him go. Where do the Titans rank after a very positive offseason? 13th overall says NFL.com. Somehow they believe that the Giants could make a case to be better than us as well....The Titans’ OLBs are very much in question for the game this Sunday against the Dolphins. Orakpo says he’ll be ready, but Morgan and Landry are still injured, Finch has been hurt as well. If we are counting on Correa and Wallace to give us meaningful snaps, it could be a long day for the defense.
