Dorial Green-Beckham will probably catch a lot of passes for the Philadelphia Eagles this year. He caught 32 for the Titans last season, including four touchdowns. Was the big man with great speed a victim of too-high expectations in Tennessee? Based on the talent and potential the answer is likely yes. In letting Green-Beckham go, are the Titans saying the DGB downsides outweigh the potential payoff? Indisputably.
Philly here I come! Much love to all my teammates, coaches and fans in Nashville. Thanks for everything. #BirdGang

DGB may not have produced the digits in his rookie campaign that Titans’ brass wanted, but the second rounder out of Missouri has all the tools. Green-Beckham had a checkered background in college, ultimately getting dismissed from the team for off-field issues that included marijuana possession. The Eagles hope the new chance and fresh start will light a fire under Green-Beckham that brings his discipline in line with his talent. Green-Beckham is just 23 and runs a 4.5 40-yard-dash. At 6’5″ he’s a big target for whoever ultimately wins the Eagles quarterback job.
