2. Treylon Burks, WR - Titans

Wide receiver Treylon Burks got the spotlight because the Tennessee Titans drafted him in 2022 to replace A.J. Brown. Then head coach Mike Vrabel went viral for failing to hide his displeasure. Looking back, Vrabel's reaction made sense, as Burks has left much to be desired.

In 22 games, Burks has hauled in 49 receptions for 665 yards with one touchdown. The Titans surely expected more than that when they invested a first-round pick in him. However, it looks like they're ready to pull the plug on him. The Arkansas product could very well be their WR3 on their offense but the addition of Calvin Ridley (remember him?) doesn't bode well for him.

Ridley and DeAndre Hopkins will be the top two options in the Titans' passing game. That could create favorable matchups for Burks, but if Tennessee feels like they've seen enough, the Jaguars should pouch him. It's possible that he's simply not good enough to make it in the NFL but what if all he needs is the right situation? It wouldn't hurt Jacksonville to find out.

1. Terrace Marshall, WR - Panthers

Like Treylon Burks, Terrace Marshall could be a reclamation project. A second-round pick in 2021, Marshall has failed to stand out during his three-year stint with the Carolina Panthers. Last year, he only tallied 19 receptions for 139 yards with no touchdowns.

Not surprisingly, the Panthers chose to revamp their wide receiver corps to ensure sophomore quarterback Bryce Young has enough weapons to succeed. First, they traded for Diontae Johnson and later drafted Xavier Legette. Add the presence of veteran Adam Thielen and there may no longer be room for Marshall.

Heck, Marshall requested a trade last year but found out that there wasn't a huge target for his services. Maybe Carolina latched onto him hoping they would get an offer for him during draft week but they didn't. Having restocked their wide receiver room, they could be ready to part ways with the former LSU Tiger.

In Jacksonville, Marshall wouldn't need to have a feature role. Instead, he could provide depth while he tries to hone his skills and rebuild his stock. Who knows? Maybe he can enjoy a career revival with the Jags.
