Kevin Curtis may be worth a look, but can the Titans’ new veteran wide receiver displace any of the guys who rank near the top of the depth chart?

The Titans intend to start Kenny Britt and Nate Washington, thought Britt could be facing an early-season suspension. Justin Gage still appears to rank highly with coaches. Many, including me, feel Damian Williams should definitely get a chance ahead of Gage.

Lavelle Hawkins is still inconsistent and Marc Mariani will have a bigger role as a returner.

So where could Curtis, most recently with the Chiefs, fit?

The Titans have a couple of weeks to find out.

Here’s what Scouts Inc. says about a receiver who battled testicular cancer in 2010.
“Curtis is a slot receiver with better quickness, agility and body control than straight line speed. He knows how to run routes and shows good receiving skills as well as the ability to read coverages and adjust on the move. He shows elusiveness after the catch but lacks the acceleration and deep speed to take it all the way.”
