The Tennessee Titans are looking to get back into the playoff hunt in 2012. The AFC South appears to be a two team race between the Titans and Texans and Tennessee fans believe their team can challenge. When looking at the roster of the Titans, like most teams, it has players that don't get the credit they deserve and other players that get too much credit. Who on the Titans fit this description? Let's just find out. The Titans' most underrated player proved his worth in 2011 when given a chance to be the guy. After a season- ending injury to wide receiver Kenny Britt, Nate Washington raised his level of play to have a career year. An undrafted free agent out of Tiffin College in 2005, Washington spent four seasons in Pittsburgh before coming to Tennessee. He has spent the last three years in Nashville and hopes to have a repeat performance in 2012. With the injury to Britt, Washington hauled in 74 receptions for 1,023 yards and 7 TDs in 2011 and showed his worth ...

Robert Johnson likes playing free safety

For two seasons, safety Robert Johnson has barely been a blip on the Tennessee Titans depth chart. The fifth-round draft pick from 2010 was on the roster all through his rookie season, but was inactive for all 16 games. And when a new coaching regime came in last year with Mike Munchak as head coach and Jerry Gray as defensive coordinator, Johnson's chances of having a long...

Tennessee Titans in the final year of their contracts

In April, prior to the draft, I wrote about the Titans who would be in the final year of their contracts this season and how the Titans might draft to replace some of them.  Now that the Titans have drafted seven new players, added some undrafted free agents and signed a few veteran free agents, it's time to revisit the subject to evaluate the impact of those events, if any...

Titans’ Kendall Wright leaves practice early with shoulder injury

Getty Images According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Titans rookie wide receiver Kendall Wright left practice early and didn’t return after suffering a shoulder injury.  Head coach Mike Munchak believes he won’t practice during next week’s three-day minicamp. “His shoulder is sore from falling on it,” Munchak said. “He went for a ball, trying to make a play – that...

Kendall Wright is quickly impressing the Titans

Getty Images Tennessee Titans 20th overall pick in the 2012 draft, Kendall Wright, is blowing them away with how quickly he is learning their offense and the wide receiver “X” position they are now having him learn two more positions, the “F” and “Z”; creating the possibility of moving him around to where he is needed throughout the season. “At some point he will get...

Chris Johnson says he can relate to LeBron James

Getty Images After a disappointing 2011 season, Tennessee Titans running back says that he feels like he can relate to LeBron James after the criticism he’s received. “I kinda put us in the same category,” Johnson said Tuesday, via NFL.com. “He gets a lot of criticism just like I do. I like how he bounced back the year after he got a lot of criticism. Came back, got MVP...

Chris Johnson Says He is In Same Category as Lebron James

I see where he was trying to go with the analogy, but he is way off. Lebron would have been more like Peyton Manning before he got his ring. Johnson appears to have been motivated by people saying he fell off after last season decent, but sub-par numbers for him. He is using The King as an example of how to bounce back strong. After a disappointing 2011 season, Tennessee...

Kendall Wright Avoids Serious Injury

The Tennessee Titans are taking in a giant sigh of relief as prized rookie wideout Kendall Wright's X-rays on his injured shoulder came back negative, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. Fantasy Spin: Wright escaped with a minor shoulder strain, with no structural damage and expects to be good to go for the start of training camp. Wright will compete for the starting gig...

Titans, Jason McCourty talking extension

The Titans lost one stud cornerback this offseason and they apparently do not want the same thing to happen next offseason. The Titans have entered extension talks with Jason McCourty, who will become the Titans #1 cornerback in 2012 after the loss of Cortland Finnegan. A 6th round pick in 2009, McCourty has well exceeded his draft range. As the Titans #2 cornerback last season,...

Unsigned franchise player Michael Griffin attending Titans’ minicamp

Michael Griffin is still an unsigned franchise player, but unlike other unsigned franchise players, guys like Matt Forte, Dwayne Bowe, Ray Rice, and Drew Brees, Griffin is still attending the Titans’ minicamp. Minicamp is mandatory for all of those players under contract and since Griffin is technically not under contract, he doesn’t have to be there. In fact, he doesn’t have...

Report: Kendall Wright’s injury isn’t serious

Getty Images We just reported earlier that Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright suffered a shoulder injury during practice today.  The good news is that it looks like his injury isn’t that serious. According to Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com, a source has told him that Wright’s shoulder injury isn’t that serious.  He’s still expected to miss next week’s minicamp.

NFL asks Adam “Pacman” Jones to speak at 2012 Rookie Symposium

Adam “Pacman” Jones is known for his exploits off the field more than his talent on the field. He’s been arrested numerous times and missed entire seasons due to suspensions since being drafted by the Tennessee Titans in 2005. He’s the poster child for what an NFL team should be wary of when drafting a player with character issues. Arrests and suspensions have become synonymous...
