CJ Conrad worked out for the Titans (Be still, my heart)

C.J. Conrad needs a job in the NFL.

The former Kentucky tight end had a job with the New York Giants, but the Giants organization is stupid and it cut Conrad from its practice squad a few weeks into the season. All-time dumb move by the G-Men. They got a steal in Conrad when he went undrafted, it looked like he was going to make the final roster, then they signed some other tight end out of nowhere right before cut day and sent Conrad to the practice squad. Soon after that, they cut ties completely. Idiots.

But now Conrad is on the open market and he had a tryout with the Cleveland Browns this past weekend. Good for him. Conrad is from the Cleveland area, I believe he grew up a Browns fan, Odell Beckham is there, Baker Mayfield seems fun and they’re currently in first place in the AFC North for the first time since like the 1800s. I’m sure Conrad would love to play in Cleveland, close to friends and family, in brown and orange.

However, if Cleveland isn’t interested, at least one other NFL organization may give him a shot. That organization is the Tennessee Titans, my Tennessee Titans, and Conrad was in Nashville this week for a workout.

I’ve been dreaming of this news for several months; matter of fact, I’ve kind of obsessed over it on Twitter and I harassed the @Titans account leading up to the draft.

I know it was only a workout and Conrad was one of many brought in to audition for a new opening on the practice squad, but at least it was a step in the right direction.

Titans fandom aside, it’s good to know there is interest out there for Conrad because he deserves it. He needs to be on an NFL team and we will all root for him wherever he ends up.

But the Titans should sign him.
