Grade Day: Taylor Thompson slowly developing

Entering his third season as a member of the Tennessee Titans, Taylor Thompson is slowly approaching the “bust” label. In two years, Thompson has caught nine passes for 59 yards and a touchdown.

A midseason look at Titans catches

So, back in the offseason, I took a stab at projecting how many catches each Titans player would end up with in 2013. Now that the Titans have played half their games, I thought it was worth updating that look, to see how the Titans actually had targeted their receivers.
