The Tennessee Titans finished the 2022 season with a 7–10 record, a vast change from their 12–5 performance in 2021.
As they now set their sights on 2023, the Titans may need to make some changes to their team, especially on offense.
The organization drafted Will Lewis in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft, potentially signaling the end of Ryan Tannehill’s time with the team.
In a recent interview, second-year wide receiver Traylon Burks gave an insight into what the Titans could look like this year.
“Just having an offense of that tempo, just knowing that we have a lot in this offense,” Burks said.

Burks also said that in this offense, players “can be free, have fun, just win games.”
Winning isn’t necessarily what the Titans did a lot last year, and they will look to improve significantly in that category this season.
No matter who is under center, Burke believes this offense can thrive given the amount of talent present on this roster.
In addition to Burks, the Titans still have running back Derrick Henry, a mainstay of their rushing attack.
Chigoziem Okonkwo also established himself as a serviceable pass-catcher last season, used primarily out of necessity.
The Titans dealt AJ Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2022 offseason, and have yet to replace him with a veteran.
Burks believes the Titans have everything it takes to succeed in this league, even with their lack of depth on offense.
Can the Titans make a splash this season, return to the playoffs?
