Found May 18, 2012 on Football Nation:
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? Not yet. 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, plus two rushing and passing. Looks like the right guy for your fantasy team, right? Wrong. First, the Titans run a more balanced, under center, offense opposed to Baylor’s more spread ,up-tempo offense meaning presumably less passing and fewer opportunities to catch the ball. Second, Wright comes to the Titans in the midst of a quarterback battle between veteran Matt Hasselbeck and second-year quarterback Jake Locker. Wright may find it difficult to develop chemistry, like he had with 2011 Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III, the longer the starting quarterback spot remains up in the air. Wright’s ...

Titans may not have Kenny Britt play until the regular season

Getty Images 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...

Titans’ Tommie Campbell to see more action in 2012?

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...

Titans’ Akeem Ayers trying to become a better pass rusher

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 Fantasy Football Projections

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...

Titans to go to a more wide open offense in 2012

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...

Titans’ GM comments on quarterback situation

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 [...]

Titans' Britt has knee surgery

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...

Kenny Britt has knee surgery, expected to be ready for the season

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...

Are the Titans really serious about upgrading at center?

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...

Kenny Britt has second knee surgery

Brought to you by: Lester's Legends 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...
