WR Kenny Britt established himself as the Titans' top receiver in his second NFL season, starting ahead of the vaunted Randy Moss late in the campaign. TE Jared Cook, who, like Britt, is a 2009 draft pick, has earned a bigger role as the season progressed and appears likely to enter next season as the top pass-catching threat at the position. The best may be yet to come for these young players; Britt won't turn 23 until September and Cook will be 24 in April. Another young pass catcher, WR Damian Williams, is also poised to push for a bigger role in 2011, the way we hear it. Williams, who turns 23 in May, has caught 13 passes in limited action as a rookie in 2010, and he could battle Nate Washington for a starting job next year, we're told. Washington has been targeted a team-high 90 times this season and led the Titans in receptions (41) entering Week 17.
