The Tennessee Titans have decided to decline the fifth-year option for wide receiver Corey Davis, as reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
Drafted fifth overall in the 2017 NFL draft, Davis is entering his fourth season with the Titans. The declined option will make him a free agent after the 2020-21 season. The fifth-year option was expected to be worth upwards of $15 million.
The move is not surprising given his mercurial production. After an up and down rookie season that was limited due to injuries, Davis broke into the scene with 891 yards in 2018 where he started all 16 games.
