‘I’m Not Gonna Lie,’ says Jets WR Corey Davis, who was passed over by the Titans.

When the NFL released its 2021 schedule in May, this was one of the games that was circled in permanent marker. Corey Davis, a wide receiver for the New York Jets, simply said it was “just another week” during his open media availability as the team prepares for its Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans.

Clearly, this is not the case. When he was selected with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, the former Western Michigan star was considered the promised prince. He spent the next four seasons with the Titans before becoming a free agent in March.

Things Got Personal

Davis may have called this “just another week,” but he couldn’t hide his emotions when asked about how things went this offseason.

The Titans declined his fifth-year option prior to the 2020 season, allowing him to become a free agent this spring. Davis had a career year in nearly every statistical category, including receptions (65), yards (984), touchdowns (five), and average yards per catch (15.1). Despite those numbers, Tennessee made no attempt to keep Davis in the offseason, and when asked if it bothered him, Davis was blunt:

“A little bit, I’m not going to lie to you, but God never makes mistakes and I’m extremely happy to be here.”

Did someone say juicy Davis revenge game? What’s at Stake?


Davis wants to show that the Titans made a mistake. He wants to prove to himself that he is, in fact, a No. 1 wide receiver.

But, more importantly, Jets fans have set a much lower bar for Davis in this game; all they want is for him to catch the ball.

After a strong debut against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1, when he had five receptions for 97 yards and two touchdowns, things have slowed considerably:

  • In the last two weeks, he has seven receptions for 49 yards. Although the uncharacteristic drops that have plagued this Jets offense are even worse than the lack of production.

    According to Michael Nania of Jets X-Factor, Davis had a total of four drops in 14 games last season. He’s already had five drops in three games this season.

    This is a game that the Jets have a chance to win; they’ve gone winless so far, but the Titans are in trouble. They’re dealing with a number of issues that may prevent many of their stars from participating in this game. Davis has

    to be the No. 1 wide receiver the Jets have paid him to be. He was the Robin to AJ Brown’s Batman in Tennessee.

    Playing against the opposing defense’s second-best corner had a lot of advantages in that role.

    With the Jets, he is the receiving corps’ top dog. While he may not be the best wide receiver in the NFL, he is the best wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers.
