  Titans | Ryan Hewitt joins Tennessee    Thu Jun 13, 04:04 PM

Free-agent TE Ryan Hewitt (Colts) signed an undisclosed contract with the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, June 13. TE Keith Towbridge was waived to make room for him on the roster.

Footballguys view: Hewitt is kind of a fullback/TE who is primarily a blocker. That's going to be his role for the Titans if he makes the final roster.

  Titans | A.J. Brown agrees to terms     Wed Jun 12, 07:09 PM

Tennessee Titans second-round draft choice WR A.J. Brown agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Titans Wednesday, June 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Brown has a skill set that could work well in the NFL. He's balanced when running after the catch and is tough to bring down. Brown is more quick than fast, but he uses his quickness and strength to make plays. He will start opposite of Corey Davis this year for the Titans.

  Titans | Jeffery Simmons not rushing back    Wed Jun 12, 09:23 AM

Tennessee Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (knee) said he's not rushing back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. 'If I don't play this year, I'm fine with it,' Simmons said. 'But my goal is to get healthy on my time and on this team's time. There's no time limit and when I can come back. Every day I come to work, I'm putting my mindset, you know, 'I want to get back today.' That's how I come to work every day and try to get better.'

Footballguys view: Simmons had the makings of a top-10 pick before sustaining this knee injury before the combine. The Titans selected him No. 19 overall in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft with the idea that he might need a redshirt year as a rookie. It sounds like Simmons is okay with that, and the Titans certainly are going to ease him along at the correct pace.

  Titans | Delanie Walker, Jonnu Smith not at minicamp    Tue Jun 11, 02:30 PM

Tennessee Titans TEs Delanie Walker (ankle) and Jonnu Smith (knee) were not at mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 11.

Footballguys view: Back in May, Walker declared himself around 85 percent healthy. He was cleared for 7-on-7 drills during OTAs but the team doesn't want to rush things. Walker will be eased into training camp and at this time his Week 1 status is not in doubt. Smith was lost in 2018 with a torn MCL in Week 14. The Titans are taking the same approach with him and will ease him back into action as the season draws near.

  Titans | A.J. Brown to be limited at minicamp    Mon Jun 10, 03:48 PM

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown (hamstring) is expected to sit during team periods at mandatory minicamp beginning Tuesday, June 11, and going through Thursday, June 13.

Footballguys view: Hamstring injuries can linger, and the Titans don't want that to happen with their 2019 second-round pick. Brown is going to line up outside opposite of Corey Davis in 2019, and the rookie has good speed but fantastic ball-tracking ability. With that role, we could see him catching 40-50 passes as a rookie if he can stay healthy.

  Titans | Tajae Sharpe to try special teams    Sun Jun 9, 08:28 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe will have the opportunity to show he can play on special teams, according to head coach Mike Vrabel.

Footballguys view: Sharpe will have to make plays on special teams in order to make the 53-man roster. Last year, Sharpe played in 16 games but was bothered by an ankle injury over the final few weeks of the regular season. He caught 26 passes for 316 yards and two touchdowns. The Titans added A.J. Brown via the draft and Adam Humphries via free agency, pushing Sharpe further down the depth chart.

  Titans | Jack Conklin missed workouts    Sat Jun 8, 05:32 PM

Tennessee Titans OT Jack Conklin (knee) missed all of the offseason workouts because he is still recovering from a knee injury. OT Dennis Kelly has been working at right tackle while Conklin has been sidelined.

Footballguys view: Kelly played well enough last year, so this isn't a huge concern. We'll be watching the guard play for the Titans more closely when camp opens.

  Titans | Baby steps for Jonnu Smith    Thu Jun 6, 09:30 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Jonnu Smith (knee) was able to do some running on the field after practice Tuesday, June 4.

Footballguys view: Smith went down in early December last year due to an MCL injury. The team is being cautious with him as the injury is considered somewhat minor compared to other knee injuries. We'll see where he's at when training camp starts later this summer.

  Titans | A.J. Brown leaves practice early Tuesday    Tue Jun 4, 05:14 PM

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown (hamstring) appeared to suffer a hamstring injury during practice and left the field after attempting to walk it off. However, he reappeared after practice and 'seemed to be all right,' according to ESPN's Turron Davenport.

  Titans | A.J. Brown to play outside    Sun Jun 2, 09:09 PM

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown will likely line up as an outside receiver a majority of the time this season, according to John Glennon of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: This would make Brown and Corey Davis the outside threats for the Titans...and that sounds pretty good to us. Last year for Ole Miss, 805 of Brown's 1,320 receiving yards were from the slot. We don't think Brown will have much problem working mostly outside. The Titans have free agent addition Adam Humphries to work from the slot this season.

  Titans | Delanie Walker making progress    Thu May 30, 09:18 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) was able to participate in 7-on-7 drills during practice Thursday, May 30.

Footballguys view: Walker said a couple of weeks ago that he's around 85 percent healthy. We should see him fully participate at some point in training camp or the preseason. Walker has a current ADP of TE13 (12.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota checking in around 230    Tue May 28, 02:11 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota currently weighs about 230 pounds - reportedly 12 or 13 pounds more from where he ended last season.

Footballguys view: Mariota is adding body armor in an effort to be more durable in 2019. He's always had some sort of issue that made him miss time in four seasons as a pro. Mariota has never played a full 16-game season and is in the final year of his rookie contract. His future with the team comes down to how he performs this season.

  Titans | Jeffery Simmons signs contract    Wed May 22, 04:51 PM

Tennessee Titans first-round draft choice DT Jeffery Simmons signed a four-year deal with the Titans Wednesday, May 22. Financial terms were not disclosed, but the deal will include a fifth-year option.

Footballguys view: You know Simmons has a ton of talent when he suffers a knee injury training for the Scouting Combine and still gets selected in the first round. Measuring in at 6'4" 301 pounds, Simmons is strong and athletic which makes some in the scouting community say he can be a disruptive interior player like Ndamukong Suh. We could see Simmons get a 'red shirt' year in 2019 as he recovers from his ACL injury.

  Titans | Delanie Walker getting closer to full health    Tue May 21, 05:55 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) estimates he is 'in the 85 percent range' in terms of his recovery from the season-ending ankle injury he suffered in Week 1 of last season. Walker practiced for the first time since before the injury Tuesday, May 21, and appeared to be moving well and cutting smoothly, according to Erik Bacharach of the Tennessean.

Footballguys view: Getting Walker back is nothing but a good thing for the Titans offense. Walker is a favorite target of QB Marcus Mariota, who seems to be in a make-or-break year for Tennessee. We see Walker as a TE2 with TE1 upside for Fantasy GMs in 2019. Walker has a current ADP of TE13 (11.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Free-agent WR Jalen Tolliver (Cardinals) agreed to terms on a contract with the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, May 16. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Tolliver was an undrafted free agent for the Cardinals in 2018 coming out of Arkansas-Monticello. He was a touchdown hog in college and has good size at 6'3" 213 pounds. We'll watch him in crazy deep dynasty formats.

  Titans | A.J. Brown delivering on the field    Sun May 12, 08:53 PM

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown has been the most impressive player during rookie minicamp, in the opinion of Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com.

Footballguys view: Brown was arguably the best wide receiver from Ole Miss this year in the draft. The hype may have been around 'Mr. Universe' D.K. Metcalf, but Brown is more polished. It's not a surprise that he's turning heads early in minicamp. The Titans passing game isn't one we'll invest heavily in when it comes to re-draft leagues, but we certainly appreciate Brown's upside in dynasty formats.

  Titans | Jeffery Simmons sits out minicamp    Sun May 12, 05:58 PM

Tennessee Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (knee) did not participate in the rookie minicamp this weekend but is able to lift and is attending the meetings, according to head coach Mike Vrabel.

Footballguys view: We could be looking at a 'redshirt' year for Simmons. He tore his ACL training for the draft and has been on the road to recovery for a couple of months. Simmons should be limited all through minicamp and training camp, with the earliest projections having him return late in the season...or just debuting in 2020.

  Titans | Jurrell Casey eyeing OTAs    Sat May 11, 09:03 PM

Tennessee Titans DT Jurrell Casey (knee) said he feels good after healing up during the offseason and expects to be ready for the start of OTAs.

Footballguys view: Casey might not get to share the field with first-round pick Jeffery Simmons until 2020, but when Simmons returns from a torn ACL suffered during pre-draft training, it could give the Titans the best 1-2 punch at defensive tackle in the league.

Undrafted free-agent S Jonathan Crawford (Indiana), CB Taj-Amir Torres (Boston College) and WR Isaac Zico (Purdue) have agreed to terms with the Tennessee Titans on undisclosed contracts Thursday, May 9.

Footballguys view: Zico came alive a bit with freshman Rondale Moore preoccupying defenses. He'll hope to win a practice squad spot with a good summer.

  Titans | Game slowed for Corey Davis    Thu May 9, 10:42 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis said the game slowed down a lot in his second season in 2018. 'Me and Marcus (Mariota,) our chemistry is growing every day, and it's continuing to grow,' Davis said. 'Our job is to get open and catch the ball... Our chemistry is looking good and continuing to grow.'

Footballguys view: Davis posted career-best numbers in his second season as a pro. In 2018, Davis was targeted 112 times, caught 65 passes for 891 yards and four touchdowns. That ranked 27th in fantasy football (standard-scoring leagues). We'll see if Davis can continue to improve those numbers with his chemistry getting stronger with Mariota. The Titans drafted A.J. Brown and added Adam Humphries in free agency, so the target share is likely to be different in 2019. Oh yeah, TE Delanie Walker is coming back from injury too. Davis currently has an ADP of WR34 (8.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Free-agent DT Ndamukong Suh (Rams) does not appear to be an immediate target for the Tennessee Titans at this point, in the opinion of TitansOnline.com's Jim Wyatt.

Footballguys view: The Titans and the Chargers seem to be the only teams linked to Suh this offseason. He'll find a new home soon enough, but it sounds like Tennessee may not be as interested as some think they are.

  Titans | Tajae Sharpe on the bubble?    Sat May 4, 02:44 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe could be the odd man out among Tennessee's receivers, in the opinion of Bill Barnwell, who sees the additions of WRs Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown as possibly pushing Sharpe off the roster since he doesn't play special teams.

Footballguys view: Sharpe had intriguing talent coming out of UMASS as a fifth-round pick for the Titans in 2016...but he has yet to play up to his potential. He started 14 games in 2018 but only had 26 catches for 316 yards and two receiving touchdowns. He is most certainly on the bubble.
