Found May 19, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
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 the Division-II All-Star Game last spring. Campbell was originally recruited by Pittsburgh, but was kicked out for academic reasons. He then spent 2 years as a janitor at the Pittsburgh Airport, before getting a shot at California University of Pennsylvania. His strong measurables helped him get noticed and the Titans are feeling right now like they might have unearthed a gem. Jason McCourty is established as the team’s #1 cornerback with Cortland Finnegan gone as he’s the only returning starter, but Gray mentioned that Campbell would compete with Alterraun Verner for the #2 job. Verner did a great job in the s...

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.

Ayers has been spending a lot of time this offseason with new pass rushing coach Keith Millard...

Rookie Fantasy Preview: Kendall Wright

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...

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...

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...
