In the NFL, no player is guaranteed to produce as advertised.  Many prospects are drafted early with the hopes they can develop into a dominant force for their new team.  Sometimes this is the case — other times, it’s not.  A great example of a let-down, thus far, is Kenny Britt.  It is hard to think of a more disappointing player in recent history and with a forgettable 2013 in the books, Britt now hits free agency and fantasy footballers everywhere wait to see where he lands. All of Britt’s tangibles have been well-documented.  Whether it’s his size and speed or his ability to overpower defensive backs, but the intangibles were the main concern for Britt coming out of Rutgers and they proved detrimental to his career, as he has already been suspended for off the field conduct.  In early 2011, Kenny Britt looked like the wide receiver he was drafted to be.  Through two games, he had 14 catches for 371 yards and three touchdowns.  Unfortunately, his season was ended by a terrible kn...

Titans May Have A Tough Time Re-Signing CB Alterraun Verner

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean has a “hunch” that the Titans will have hard time preventing impending free agent CB Alterraun Verner from testing the open market this March. Wyatt doesn’t see the Titans using their franchise tag on Verner as it would run them close to $11 million for the 2014 season. Wyatt adds that the Titans do have some talent at the cornerback position...

Tennessee Titans facing salary cap restrictions

As the offseason approaches, the Tennessee Titans have some important decisions to make. Paul Kuharsky from ESPN.com broke down the salary cap situation, which doesn’t bode well for those wanting a carryover from this year’s squad. According to Kuharsky’s math, the Titans have about $6 million in cap space with all current costs included, but have room to work with if they...

Titans unlikely to cut Jake Locker in 2014

Earlier in the year, when the NFL season was winding down, there was talk of the Tennessee Titans moving on from Jake Locker at quarterback. This was immediately interpreted as the team cutting Locker in the offseason, but it appears that was a hasty assumption we all made. While moving on from a player typically involves cutting them, it appears the Titans are moving on from Locker...

Titans Do Not Plan on Franchise Tagging CB Alterraun Verner

The Tennessee Titans had only a handful of productive players on defense in 2013, none of them being more important than cornerback Alterraun Verner. Verner is set to earn a lucrative contract this offseason after holding opposing quarterbacks to a quarterback rating under 56.0 in 2013. Verner was one of only three cornerbacks to do so, and by being only 25 years old, demand...

Which free agents should Titans try to re-sign?

The Titans still have plenty of time to sign their free agents before the new NFL year begins on March 11. In many cases, however, they will let players walk while reshaping the roster under new coach Ken Whisenhunt. Other players could hit the market to gauge their value before re-signing. There are 15 players scheduled to become unrestricted free agents next month. Here’s my...

The Titans need to show some faith in Jake Locker

This league is all about quick fixes; if something isn’t working, get rid of it. You aren’t afforded a bad day in the NFL. This means that rarely, especially at the quarterback position, are young players actually given the chance to develop into their potential. We forget that these guys aren’t seasoned-vets, but 22-year-old kids who just found life outside of a campus. If...

Titans unlikely to franchise tag Alterraun Verner

The Tennessee Titans have had a decision on their hands about what to do with impending free agent cornerback Alterraun Verner. The Pro Bowl cornerback is expected to get big money in free agency, but the question has been would the Titans even allow him to hit the market or would they franchise tag him and keep him for another year? According to Titans beat writer Jim Wyatt, Verner...

Report: Titans don’t plan on using their franchise tag

var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551', Size: '468060', CallType: 'IFRAME'}; According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean,  the Titans don’t plan on using the franchise tag on any players this offseason. So why not use the franchise tag on cornerback Alterraun Verner? It would cost the Titans roughly $11.2 million, and that’s a hefty price tag on a one-year deal...

Report: Titans don't plan to use the franchise tag on Alterraun Verner

I have never wanted the Titans to re-sign a player more than I want them to sign Alterraun Verner. With that being said, I don't disagree with the decision to not use the franchise tag on him- if that is what ultimately happens. ATV is a very, very good corner, but he isn't a top-5 corner in the league. And don't even start with using either of those tags on Bernard...

2014 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: C

Our final stop on the offense on our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head into the 2014 offseason, after previous looks at quarterback, running back, fullback, wide receiver, tight end, offensive tackle, and guard, is a look at the center position. As I noted in the preseason positional analysis, the center of the future was acquired last offseason...

Report: Titans Have No Plans To Use Their Franchise Tag

According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, “indications” are that the Titans have no plans to use their franchise tag on any of their free agents next week. The only candidate who really makes for the franchise tag would be CB Alterraun Verner who is coming off of a Pro Bowl season for the Titans. However, it would cost Tennessee close to $11 million next year and Wyatt mentions...

Do the Tennessee Titans have anyone who passes “the Derek Jeter test?”

Yesterday, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter announced that 2014 will be his final season. After what will be 20 years in pinstripes, No. 2 will hang up his cleats for good. The news generated all sorts of reaction, both inside Major League Baseball and outside the game, almost all of it positive. Praise for Jeter poured in from every corner, from all sorts of people. Why? Because he’s...
