You have to be with the news today.
PapaTitan keeps it real.
Of course, when coaches are saying they are thinking about "mixing it up" in the return game others players are being penciled in at the position it doesn't sound good at all.
Marc is on the outside looking in and he probably knows it. The talent they have at the WR position right now is the best since they've been a franchise. You know that when you see a guy like Williams (who still has a lot to prove but shined at times during last season) being used as a 4th WR.
The margin of talent between even D. Williams and Marc is large, let alone comparing him to someone of (a healthy) Britts stature. Marc will only make the team IF:
A: The coaching staff doesn't feel comfortable with a number of other guys who could be just as adequate at making returns
B: They decide to keep six WRs on the roster.
All my opinion of course. The league has changed drastically and keeping a guy on the roster who is (let's be honest) only useful on returns which have become less important due to kickoff rule changes, makes it hard to justify keeping a spot open for him.
Look at what the titans have done this season, they know Tim Shaw is primarily a special teams guy so they brought in Zach Brown and are (maybe) keeping Witherspoon as a backup/rotation guy because they know they need quality guys who can fill in and play if someone goes down. Does anyone have faith that #83 can fill a void if they have 2-3 WRs go down?

Any word on Michael Preston, the 6'5" WR that looked so good in the 4th pre-season game last year and spent the year on the practice squad??
