Free agents who could immediately help Arizona Cardinals
Word is that the Titans would love to keep Davis around. And why wouldn’t they? Considering his stellar 2020 season.
In 2020, Davis caught 65 passes on 92 targets, good for a career-high 70.3 catch percentage. He also set career-highs in receiving yards (984), yards per reception (15.1), yards per game (70.3), and receiving touchdowns (5).
However, the Titans also won’t keep him around just at any price. He still hasn’t lived up to his fifth overall draft status. And while Davis didn’t light up the league in 2020, he performs well enough that he would draw defenders away from DeAndre Hopkins.
Also, his presence could also open things up in the slot for Christian Kirk, and even Larry Fitzgerald, if the latter hangs around for another season. Kyler Murray won’t have to force as many passes. And since Davis would open up a few more passing lanes as a WR2, Murray won’t have to tuck it and run so often. Something that wore him down in 2020 amidst the team’s collapse.
If the Cardinals can’t land Davis, there are a few solid alternatives. Curtis Samuel is one name that comes to mind. And while a few teams have been linked to him, the Cardinals should join in the bidding if Davis is gone. Like Davis, Samuel set several career-highs, including 77 receptions and a 79.4 percent catch percentage.
