Tennessee Titans Position Review: Tight End

The draft is behind us. Free agency is fizzling out. The Tennessee Titans are severely limiting practices to the media, so an absence of new information is manifesting. Indeed, NFL fans, the roughest stretch of the offseason is upon us, looming like the Eye of Sauron.Okay, maybe that was a bit extreme – it’s not exactly like feeling the constant vigilance of the Dark Lord of...

Titans draft preview by position

Beyond breaking down the visits like I did in my previous post, another of the staples of my pre-draft coverage has been a breakdown of the Titans’ chances of drafting a player at each position. In the past, I’ve done separate posts for offense and for defense (links to 2014 versions), giving an estimate of the Titans’ need at each position, a brief analysis, a probability...

Titans notes-Stingily, Harris, Stevens

Life continues apace. Blogging progresses accordingly. Since I last updated the status of things, the Titans have re-signed two of their own players from last year and restructured the contract of a third. The first move came when they re-signed offensive tackle Byron Stingily. The Titans told me all they needed to about what they thought of Stingily’s long-term potential last...

Earlier in the week it was reported that Fasano had a visit scheduled in Nashville, and The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt reported on Friday that the Titans and Fasano had agreed to terms. This could fall...

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: TE

After quarterback, running back, fullback, and wide receiver, our next stop on our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head into the 2015 offseason is tight end. The Titans returned their top three tight ends, but ended up having injury issues at the position and had seven different players at the position play at least a rotational role in multiple games...

Why is the same Titans team that went 7-9 now 2-6?

When I wrote my season preview, I equivocated before ultimately predicting the Tennessee Titans to finish 2014 with the same 7-9 mark they had in 2013. The biggest reason for my prediction was that, ultimately, this was largely the same collection of players that went 7-9. Eighteen of the twenty-two starters in 2013 returned, which is about as much continuity as you can expect in...

The Tennessee Titans are placing TE Craig Stevens on season-ending injured reserve Saturday and promoting TE Brett Bracket to their active roster, according to Jim Wyatt. Terry McCormick reported earlier in the week that Stevens underwent season-ending surgery a few days ago for a quad injury, so this news doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

Tennessee Titans vets take pay cuts to remain with team

Defensive end/linebacker Kamerion Wimbley and tight end Craig Stevens will remain members of the Tennessee Titans through at least this season. Wimbley, who spent the first six of his eight-year career at linebacker, has struggled to find his footing with the Titans as a defensive end. He’ll likely shift back to linebacker in Tennessee’s hybrid defense, but not without taking...

Tennessee Titans looking at tight ends in NFL Draft?

The Tennessee Titans’ roster has a number of problems, including depth at tight end. Craig Stevens showed he’s not a suitable backup in the passing game this past season. Tennessee took a flyer on Taylor Thompson and he’s nothing more than an athlete. The Titans might be in the market for a tight end once the draft rolls around, so let’s take a look at the top 10 tight ends...

Tennessee Titans should look for depth at tight end through free agency

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt noted recently that depth at every position is important moving forward for the Tennessee Titans. Other than at quarterback, the biggest loss of the season for the Titans was Delanie Walker, who suffered a concussion and left a massive gap at tight end. Craig Stevens really struggled to assist in any way to the passing game and showed the lack of depth...

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.
