Footballguys view: Thompson was a converted defensive lineman who made the transition to tight end, but he failed to make an impact as a pro. Injuries have knocked his pro career off track.

The Tennessee Titans have declared RB Antonio Andrews, QB Charlie Whitehurst, CB Coty Sensabaugh, DT DaQuan Jones, WR Kris Durham, TE Taylor Thompson, OT Will Svitek inactive for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Andrews is valuable enough to the Titans to call up from the practice squad to prevent the Bills from getting him, but not enough to make him active.

The Tennessee Titans have declared LB Akeem Ayers, CB Coty Sensabaugh, QB Jake Locker, DL Ropati Pitoitua, RB Shonn Greene, TE Taylor Thompson, OT Will Svitek inactive for Week 7.

  Titans | Offense affected by Delanie Walker injury    Tue Dec 3, 01:28 PM

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said the injury to TE Delanie Walker (concussion) early in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts affected the team's passing offense. 'All of a sudden, they can put more attention on Kendall (Wright), on Nate (Washington), on our other receivers, which they couldn't have done before,' Munchak said. TE Taylor Thompson played 72 of 75 offensive snaps as a result with TE Craig Stevens (concussion) also out. The status of Walker and Stevens remains up in the air for Week 14 against the Denver Broncos, and they'll have to pass the concussion tests in order to play this weekend.

Footballguys view: Thompson is a converted DE who is an interesting prospect to watch in super deep dynasty leagues. The Broncos historically struggle to cover TEs so it will be interesting to see how they match up on Sunday.

  Titans | Taylor Thompson hopeful for Saturday    Sun Aug 11, 11:27 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Taylor Thompson (shoulder) was unable to practice Sunday, Aug. 11, as he nurses a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. However, he is hopeful of playing in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Thompson needs to get healthy and gain more experience on the football field. He was a defensive end in college at SMU but transitioned to tight end at the 2012 Players All Star Classic in Little Rock, AR. The Titans liked him enough to take a chance on him in the fifth-round of the 2012 NFL draft. Thompson is big, strong, and athletic enough to create mismatches when he's on the field. He's an interesting player to monitor in dynasty leagues.

  Titans | Taylor Thompson likely will be pushed for roster spot    Mon Jul 15, 03:50 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Taylor Thompson likely will enter training camp as the favorite for the No. 3 tight end job but will have to compete with TEs Jack Doyle and Brandon Barden for the job.

Footballguys view: Thompson played DL in college at SMU but was moved to TE for the 2012 Players All Star Classic. He impressed enough at that All Star game to get drafted as a TE by the Titans in the fifth-round of the 2012 NFL draft. Thompson is a physical player who can wrestle away contested catches. He's also athletic enough to create mismatches on the field. We'll see if he can continue to develop his raw skill set. Thompson is an interesting prospect to watch in deep dynasty leagues.
