Nerdy Football Analysis: Given the Titans are inheriting the entire contract this is probably about as good of a deal as could be expected for Atlanta. This move is likely a ding to Matt Ryan’s value and the offense as a whole as they lose one of the best playmakers in the game. That being said, this trade elevates rookie TE Kyle Pitts as the Falcons search for playmakers to go along with Calvin Ridley. The Titans get a much needed offensive weapon after losing Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith to free agency.
