Titans' Harry Douglas wants to shake slot receiver label
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/13/15) Now that Harry Douglas is in Tennessee, he's looking to prove he's more versatile than the slot receiver tag he's been labeled his entire career with.
With the Falcons from 2008-2014, Douglas did primarily line up in the slot since he's played with a couple of high-profile receivers during his career.
"That's crazy I got labeled a slot receiver when I came into the league," Douglas said, according to ESPN.com. "But you've got to understand, I played with Roddy (White) and Julio (Jones), and Roddy and Michael Jenkins so I had to fill into the slot position.
"I play all over, man. I think I'm a wide receiver. I'm not a slot receiver, I'm a receiver. I can play anywhere."
In seven years, Douglas has posted 3,131 yards and eight touchdowns.

Douglas has been with the Falcons since 2008, and had a year remaining in his deal. He racked up 258 receptions, 3,130 yards and eight touchdowns. Last season, he turned 75 targets into 51 catches for 556 yards and two scores. This comes a day after the team released veteran running back Steven Jackson, as new coach Dan Quinn prepares for roster shakeup this offseason.
Falcons list five as questionable for regular season finale
It was probably Harry Douglas' 2013 season that helped him land a spot with the Titans this offseason, not his 2014 season. That's because Douglas proved in 2013 that he could hang in the NFL as a starting receiver in Atlanta, hauling in 85 grabs for over 1,000 yards. That's not to say last year wasn't bad -- he averaged 4.3 catches per game -- but his receiving average was below-average (10.9 yards per catch). Worse yet, Douglas has practically been allergic to the end zone, scoring two touchdowns in each of his last two seasons with four in the previous five seasons. Douglas will have a shot to see regular playing time in Tennessee and is a candidate for over 65 catches. As a decent reserve receiver, especially in PPR formats, you could do worse with a late-round pick.
