The Titans were pitiful on the back end last year, as any warm body could throw for 230 yards and two touchdowns against a scheme that was stretched thin without an official defensive coordinator. Trading for Jones won’t fix the fact that their cornerback room is still severely lacking.
Janoris Jenkins is about as uninspiring as No.1 cornerback options go; Kristian Fulton needs to prove himself; and Caleb Farley, despite the fact he was one of the better picks in the first round, is still a rookie, and he is a complete wild card after sitting out the 2020 season. Indy doesn’t have the 2015 Broncos’ secondary, but their group is solid.
The Colts have a much better secondary than the Titans.
Xavier Rhodes proved that he can play like the Pro Bowler he was in Minnesota, and Kenny Moore remains one of the best slot cornerbacks in the game. Rock Ya-Sin has been as inconsistent as Fulton, but the play of Rhodes and Moore gives Indianapolis the edge. And don’t forget about TJ Carrie!
Jones will get his yards against the Colts. He’s just too darn explosive. However, the Colts will be able to limit Jones as well as any AFC South team, as Rhodes will be able to bump him at the line of scrimmage with some degree of success.
