The Penalty Flag:
The Titans are a team in search of an identity beyond Chris Johnson and the 2013 free agency cycle should help provide clues to that identity.
The toughest decision for the Titans in 2013 is to decide whether they will be defined by Chris Johnson or by the play of their young quarterback in Jake Locker. History has shown that quarterbacks have to be the focus in the NFL, but Chris Johnson’s presence on the team undermines that focus... Read more

Titans among teams with can't-miss first round draft picks
Nobody wants to get it wrong on a first round draft choice. The sad reality for teams across the NFL is that it's happened in the past and will continue to happen as long as the league is alive and well. The truth of the matter is that perennial playoffs teams and teams with a solid core of skill players...

FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Jared Cook, who will likely become a free agent soon, is one of the few tight ends in this years fantasy drafts that could pay handsomely compared to where he is drafted. Words such as underutilized, extremely talented and good downfield target...
The Tennessee Titans have kept one of their pending free agents off the market, signing defensive end Keyunta Dawson to a one-year contract.
The Titans announced the deal Thursday. That leaves them with 16 players set to become free agents Tuesday.
Dawson originally signed with Tennessee last year, but the veteran played in the first three games of the season before a hamstring...
The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms keeping kicker Rob Bironas off the free agent market and with the team he has spent the past eight seasons.
The Titans announced the deal Thursday. NFL.com and The Tennessean both report the deal is for two years.
Bironas, 35, ranks as the third most accurate kicker in NFL history, connecting on 85.6 percent of his attempts. He trails only...
Naturally, since in yesterday's post I noted the Titans hadn't been very active in re-signing their own players, they went ahead and reupped two, re-signing kicker Rob Bironas and defensive end Keyunta Dawson. Bironas's deal is reportedly for $6.7 million over two years, while Dawson's is apparently another one-year deal for the league minimum.
As I noted in my...
Tennessee was head of the class when the AFC South formed in 2002, winning the division in back-to-back seasons. The Titans captured only one more since then—in ’08—playing second fiddle to Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. When Manning missed the ’11 season and was released by Indy in ’12, Tennessee was primed to challenge Houston for AFC South supremacy.Yeeeeeeaaaaah…about...
A 9-7 record in2011 under first-year coach Mike Munchak and the presumed development of second-year quarterback Jake Locker had fans and observers intrigued by the Tennessee Titans chances of a playoff run in 2012.
Injuries to Locker and several other key players quickly scuttled those hopes, however. And despite scoring 50 more points in 2012 than 2011, Tennessee’s defense collapsed...
Jason La Canfora reports that the Tennessee Titans have reached an agreement with K Rob Bironas on a two-year contract extension.
The Titans made it clear that they wanted to retain Bironas this offseason, so it’s not surprising to see them get this taken care of before NFL teams can begin meeting with free agents Saturday night.
Bironas, 35, saw his field goal percentage drop...
Since I wrote about the Titans' depth chart holes, that also means I can look at positions where the Titans may be looking for a player in free agency. I've already covered the tight ends, but another position where I strongly believe they'll be looking for a veteran (or maybe more than one) in free agency is offensive guard.
If it feels like I've done one of...
