The Tennessee Titans have been making lots of moves this offseason. After trading the first overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft to the Los Angeles Rams, they then traded back up from No. 15 to No. 8 with the Cleveland Browns. They also traded a fourth round pick for running back DeMarco Murray and offloaded underperforming guard Andy Levitre to the Atlanta Falcons for a sixth round pick.

Today, the Titans added another trade to the list as they traded 2015 second round pick Dorial Green-Beckham to the Philidelphia Eagles in exchange for offensive lineman Dennis Kelly.

This move seemingly came out of nowhere, despite the Titans seeming down on Green-Beckham's ability this offseason. He was passed on the depth chart by fifth round rookie Tajae Sharpe in June, and there were concerns about his progression after missing football all together in 2014 after he was dismissed by Missouri. Green-Beckham managed 32 receptions for 549 yards and four TDs in a slow-starting rookie year as he seemed to peak towards the end of the season.

However, to give up on a player so early and for such a low price seems a statement about how poor he was performing in training camp. Dennis Kelly is a swing tackle that has started 15 games in his four year career.  That's not exactly a premium player.

What do you think of the trade for our divisional rivals? Are you happy that Green-Beckham is out of the division?
