After previewing the quarterbacks and the running backs, it's time to turn our attention to the other backfield position, the fullback, in our preseason positional analysis series.For the past six seasons, the Titans' starting fullback has been Ahmard Hall. The former Texas Longhorn's contract expired following the end of the 2011 season, though, and the Titans elected not to re-sign him. There will be a camp competition for his starting job, between a veteran and a younger player whose pre-Titans trajectory in some ways mirrored Hall's.The veteran is Quinn Johnson. Acquired in a trade with the Green Bay Packers at the end of last training camp to fill the void created by Hall's four-game suspension, Johnson sadly lived up to his advance reputation. I did not rate his fullback play highly, as he seemed to struggle to locate and then block the free man in the Titans' preferred zone run plays. The Titans seemed to agree, waiving him when Hall returned from his ...

Titans center Eugene Amano injures triceps

Tennessee Titans starting center Eugene Amano injured his right triceps in a collision in team drills Thursday night. Amano left the field holding his arm - the one he using on snaps - and was escorted to the locker room. ''He got it caught it caught. I think a helmet hit, but I'm not sure,'' coach Mike Munchak said. ''A lot of times once the soreness...

Titans have competition at guard

For four seasons now, Fernando Velasco has been looking for an opportunity. The undrafted free agent first came to the Titans in 2008 and promptly got injured at the start of his first training camp. Since that time, he spent nearly two years on the practice squad and last year as a backup guard and center. But now, Velasco is finally getting a chance to be considered for a starting...

2012 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: RB

Back when we did the offseason round of positional analysis, Andrew was kind enough to write up our look at the running back position. Had that been my task, you would've ended up with a lot of words like "!%#!#" and ^!#$%" as I got progressively more annoyed while writing the piece and remembering the 2011 season. By now, though, it's been weeks since I&...

Hasselbeck trying to hold off Locker

The Titans have plenty of sidebars that will make training camp a little more interesting to follow than usual. There is, of course, the Kenny Britt saga, with the talented wide receiver beginning training camp on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list, and his arrest the week before camp opened for DUI at an army post in Fort Campbell, Ky., about an hour northwest of Nashville...

Chris Johnson looking like old self

Tennessee Titan running back Chris Johnson disappointed fantasy owners last year with 1047 yards and four rushing touchdowns, after three-straight seasons of at least 1200 yards. He burned fantasy owners by failing to score a touchdown in the first four games of the season and went scoreless in the critical playoff weeks in December. According to a report on PFT.com, Johnson is...

Titans’ Chris Johnson reportedly on a mission

Getty Images According to Charley Casserly of the NFL Network via Evan Silva of Rotoworld.com,  Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson is on a “mission” this season. “What the Titans have told me, is that this guy has come to camp on a mission,” said Casserly per Silva. This sounds like very good news for fantasy football players as well as fans of the Titans.  I expect...

Britt Running Outdoors For The 1st Time Since Surgery

Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt (knee), did some outdoor running on Tuesday for the first time, according to Matt Rybaltowski of CBSSports.comFantasy Spin:Britt has a lot to deal with before he becomes a fantasy star. First is rehabilitating his knee and then he has to deal with a DUI arrest and likely suspension. Still, remember how dominating he was in the first two weeks last...

Mike Wallace Trade Possibilities

Now I know its been made clear that Pittsburgh and Mike Wallace aren’t parting ways, but that doesn’t mean we can’t imagine. Plenty of teams could use the speedster’s services. Not to mention willing to show Mike the money. The Titans are a young team fit to make a push in the coming years. Chris Johnson was signed long-term last season, and rookie quarterback Jake Locker...
