As is our wont, we begin our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position with a look at the state of the quarterback position as we head into the 2013 league year.
When I wrote the preseason positional analysis just over six months ago, which man would start Week 1 for the Titans at quarterback was unclear. Jake Locker ended up being the Week 1 starter and held on to his starting job the entire season, though injuries, particularly a dislocated left (non-throwing) shoulder suffered Week 4 against the Texans, caused him to miss five games and be pulled in two others once they became uncompetitive.
I broke down Locker's play against the Dolphins in Week 10 in some detail, and more recently expatiated on his play at some length before the season finale. He ended up 177 of 314 passes, a 56.4% completion percentage, and threw for 2,176 yards, an average of 6.9 per attempt. He threw 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, and was sacked 25 times. He also had 41 rushes fo...
BEST OF MAXIM

The Titans intend to exercise the $10 million contract on RB Chris Johnson ($9M becomes guaranteed on 5th day after Super Bowl).

It sounds like the TItans don’t plan on getting rid of Johnson...
The Tennesse Titans have until Saturday to decide whether they want to keep running back Chris Johnson or release him. If he stays, the team will owe him the guaranteed $9 million of his $10 million salary for 2013.
The Tennessee Titans have only been around since 1999, however before that they were the Houston Oilers. In their 53 seasons, the Oilers/Titans have produced many great players, coaches and administrators. Only four can be on the Titans' Mt. Rushmore.I am sure some people will disagree with some of my selections, but these are the four people who had the biggest impact in history...
Doesn’t seem that long ago that Jevon Kearse burst on the scene while sacking every QB in sight. Then you see his career started in 1999 and you realized that was 13 years ago.
Kearse has been out of the league for three years and is facing a lot of financial troubles that a lot of ex-players do after the checks stop coming in.
Former NFL All-Pro defensive end Jevon Kearse is...
Chris Johnson didn’t have the best of years, but he didn’t fall of the map like a lot of running backs do when they get big money.
According to Pro Football Zone he is a part of the Titans future and they are going to pay him the $10 million he will be owed in 2013.

The Tennessee Titans have a major decision looming regarding running back Chris Johnson. After signing the back to a monster deal prior to the 2011 season, the Titans now have until February 9th to decide whether they want him on their roster next season. If Johnson remains on the Titans roster after the 9th, nine million of his $10 million dollar salary next season is guaranteed...
Jason La Canfora reports that the Tennessee Titans intend to exercise RB Chris Johnson‘s contract that will pay him $10 million in 2013.
La Canfora adds that $9 million of Johnson’s salary will be guaranteed as of February 9th.
The Titans have maintained all along that they planned on keeping Johnson next season. There was, however, plenty of speculation that he could be...
1. Offensive Guard
The Tennessee Titans running game has stalled over the past few years, and while some of the blame should fall on Chris Johnson, he hasn’ t been supported by the offensive line. Steve Hutchinson is a Hall of Famer, but he’s 35 and doesn’t have much left in the tank. Chance Warmack could be an option in the first round.
2. Strong Safety
Jordan Babineaux has...
We continue our look around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head into the 2013 offseason with a look at the wide receiver position.
When I wrote the positional analysis during the 2012 preseason, I started with a joke, that the Titans receiving corps would be about as good as it was in 2011. I wasn't that impressed with the group in 2011, aside from Kenny...
