Titans GM Ruston Webster claimed the competition for the starting job at center will be "wide open". The so-called "competition" for Eugene Amano's job will consist of three undrafted free agents: veteran backups Fernando Velasco and Kevin Matthews, and rookie William Vlachos. That doesn't sound like much competition to me. This coming after the Titans neglected to draft a center and gave no more than a half-hearted effort to sign the free agent centers who visited in March and April. If the four free agents signed with the teams which gave them the best offers, which is the norm, then the Titans didn't offer them a whole lot. This is what those four signed for, following the jump.

With Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt undergoing a second procedure on his knee this week, it looks like general manager Ruston Webster and the Titans will likely take things slow with Britt and knee once training camp begins.
Webster recently hinted that they may keep Britt from playing preseason games in order to help him get ready for their week one...
Tommie Campbell is not a very big name and he didn’t play much at all last year, which makes sense seeing as he was a mere 7th round pick rookie. However, Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray raised some eyebrows when he called Campbell his team’s 2nd best cornerback, at least in terms of technique. Campbell has all the measurables as well as he ran a 4.31 40 at 6-3 205 at...
As a linebacker coming out of UCLA, some looked at Akeem Ayers as a potential 3-4 outside linebacker because of his size (6-3 254) and blitzing ability. He ended up in a 4-3 with the Titans and not rushing the passer much at all in 2011, but that sounds like it could change next season. Ayers has been spending a lot of time this offseason with new pass rushing coach Keith Millard...
Tennessee Titans’ first-round-pick, Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright felt right for the Titans at pick No. 20 in their draft. Will he be the right pick for fantasy owners in 2012?
Wright comes into the NFL off a 1,663 yard and 14 touchdowns performance in 2011 to close out his four-year career. Over that span Wright amassed 4,004 yards and 30 receiving touchdowns...
Tennessee’s quarterback situation is frustrating. If Jake Locker wins the job, he has QB2 value with upside because of how well he played last season, his offensive supporting cast, and his rushing ability. However, it sounds like Matt Hasselbeck, for some reason, is the favorite for the job now. I wouldn’t recommend drafting him because he’s pretty mediocre and because he...
Under Jeff Fisher, the Titans were a run heavy, defense, field position team, but with Fisher gone, it appears they’ve gone in another direction. They spent a 1st round pick on a wide receiver, Kendall Wright, despite having 2 good under 30 ones, Kenny Britt and Nate Washington, and they also have a very good, young pass catching tight end in Jared Cook. They spent a 1st round...
The Titans’ quarterback battle between Jake Locker and Matt Hasselbeck might be the most intriguing quarterback battle of the preseason for the sheer reason that both are solid quarterbacks and that the Titans might be the best team in the league with an unresolved quarterback situation. Hasselbeck is the proven veteran, but turns 37 in [...]
Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday, but the team expects him back for the season opener against the New England Patriots. Britt tore his ACL and MCL last September. He had the surgery to accelerate his return. "It's almost become commonplace," Titans general manager Ruston Webster told reporters Wednesday after...
Last September, the Titans' star receiver, Kenny Britt, tore both his ACL and his MCL against the Denver Broncos, ending his 2011 season and putting 2012 in jeopardy. There's no doubt the team and Britt will be cautious with his rehab, and that's what likely led to Britt's decision to have arthroscopic surgery on his knew on Wednesday.
According to ESPN's...

Though it was described as minor surgery, it is still a small setback in Kenny Britt’s recovery from his knee injury that shortened his 2011 season after just three games..Britt had 14 catches for 271 yards and three touchdowns in the first two games before tearing his ACL and MCL in Week 3 against the Broncos..Britt is expected to be ready...
