The Tennessee Titans look as though they have a competition going on at safety opposite Michael Griffin. Getting an answer proves a little more challenging. Jordan Babineaux isn't sure if he remains a starter. Robert Johnson believes he will play this season simply because of all the passing teams they are scheduled to face. Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray says Babineaux will start this season alongside Griffin. Gray says Johnson will start, too, depending on matchups. Most of the focus this preseason was on Tennessee's quarterback competition. Turns out the tightest battle might have been at safety going to the fourth preseason game Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints. Babineaux is listed as the probable starter for the game, though Johnson has started the last two.
