The Tennessee Titans are continuing their quest to look for a true slot receiver – hosting veterans Brandon Stokley and Kevin Walter on Tuesday.
Stokley, 36, caught 45 passes for the Denver Broncos last season after missing the 2011 season. He scored five touchdowns and had 544 yards receiving. The well-traveled veteran has also played for the Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts, Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants in a career that spans back to 1999.
Walter, 31, was a salary cap cut by the Houston Texans where he had spent the past seven seasons. He began his career with the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Titans pursued Danny Amendola, Wes Welker and Brandon Gibson earlier in free agency, all without success.
Tennessee’s plans to add a slot receiver apparently hinges on their wanting to play Kenny Britt and Kendall Wright on the outside. The Titans had been trying to shop receiver Nate Washington, but that talk has apparently cooled in recent days, though the landing of a slot receiver could still leave Washington as the odd man out in the rotation.
Also, the Titans had former Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears center Chris Spencer in for a visit as well.
Tennessee has been the league's most aggressive team in free agency this off-season, signing 10 players, plus re-signing four others. The Titans still have about $3.9 million in cap space. However, in the top 51, which is the salary cap number that counts in the off-season, the Titans still have more than $10 million.
