The Tennessee Titans didn't make any moves in free agency Wednesday, but Titans safety Michael Griffin did make a campaign for linebacker Brian Orakpo.
Orakpo visited the Titans Wednesday, and since Griffin and Orakpo were teammates in college together at Texas, Griffin definitely made a push for the 6'4'' linebacker who has spent his entire career with the Washington Redskins.
This week’s Tennessee Titans position group analysis is on the defensive backs. As a whole, the DB’s did not put up great numbers.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans find themselves keeping company with Tampa Bay for the NFL's worst record at 2-13 with one game remaining.
No offense, Buccaneers, the Titans want to stay out of the league basement.

It was a dog of a game, subjected to national ridicule and promoted as little as any prime time game in recent memory. It ended up being one of the most competitive Thursday Night Football games of the season, within one score for most of the game and in some doubt until the final play, when the Titans failed to force overtime. In the end, the Jaguars walked away with a 21-13 victory...

Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that Titans S Michael Griffin suffered a dislocated shoulder during Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Garafolo mentions that Griffin has a second opinion scheduled, but there is a chance that he could be out “a while.“
This would be a big loss for the Titans’ defense as Griffin has been one of their best players in recent years...
Welcome to Pro Football Spot’s newest series, “Late Hits”, a piece that will examine a few plays from the Steelers game each week and tell you what went right or wrong and how it transpired that way. This week we’re going to focus on the Steelers run game, detailing how Le’Veon Bell was able to be as successful as he was in rushing for a career high 204 yards on Monday...
Le'Veon Bell juked Michael Griffin right off the planet with a big-time cut during Monday night's Steelers-Titans game.
With the trade deadline quickly approaching, the Tennessee Titans were once rumored to be major sellers. Now, we’re hearing rumblings that no additional moves are expected from the team that dealt linebacker Akeem Ayers to New England last week.
A quick aside here: don’t we do this just about every year around the trade deadline? Tons of scenarios are created and discussed, and...
Eagles HC Chip Kelly mentioned Monday morning that he doesn’t expect them to be heavily involved in trades leading up to Tuesday’s deadline.
“The trade deadline overblown,” Kelly said, per Les Bowen. “I don’t anticipate doing anything. I’m very happy w team we have right now. I love the way they can compete.”

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports the Philadelphia Eagles are looking to add a “starting-caliber” safety to their roster.
According to Florio, the Eagles are happy with free safety Malcolm Jenkins. However, they are reportedly looking to upgrade their strong safety position, which is not good news for current starter Nate Allen.
The NFL trade deadline is always unpredictable, and safety Michael Griffin being available qualifies. Do the Chicago Bears make an offer?

At 2-5, the writing appears on the wall for the Tennessee Titans. With ongoing problems at the quarterback position the likelihood of them making a run is limited at best. So as the NFL...
Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com confirms the report from Ian Rapoport that the Titans are in fact shopping veteran WR Nate Washington.
Interestingly enough, McCormick adds that S Michael Griffin‘s name has come up as a potential trade option as well.
According to McCormick, there is talk that Tennessee is open to trading both players, but he’s not saying with any...
Unlike last week, the field goal was good. The Washington Redskins got their fourth good kick of the game as time expired to beat the Tennessee Titans, 19-17.
It was a contest that mostly lived down to its advance billing. The Titans held a 10-6 lead at the half, with both scores coming off Washington turnovers that gave the Titans the ball with less than 40 yards to go until the...
When the Jacksonville Jaguars drove down the field for a touchdown on the opening possession, in three minutes and 43 seconds, it seemed as though the Titans might be reverting back to their first half woes. However, following the touchdown, the Titans defense shut down the Jaguars for the rest of the game, finishing with six sacks, two turnovers, and not allowing a single point...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Sammie Hill worried for a second that he didn't get enough of the ball with his right hand to block Josh Scobee's 55-yard field-goal attempt.
Then, the Titans lineman saw the ball fall to the ground and started celebrating.
Not the block, but Tennessee's first win since the season opener.
''There is no feeling in the world right now that I can say makes me...

The Tennessee Titans finally put together a win against the visiting (and winless) Jacksonville Jaguars. The Titans nearly blew their 16-7 lead with a minute left in the game, as the Jaguars scored a touchdown and recovered the ensuing onside kick, leaving the score at 16-14. Blake Bortles and the Jaguars drove down the field to put kicker Josh Scobee in position to win the game...
It almost happened two weeks in a row. The Tennessee Titans were holding on to a 16-7 lead late in the fourth quarter. Outside of an opening-drive score after a single big play, Jacksonville’s next eight possessions had gone for naught, with the only two deep drives ending in turnovers. Then with less than three minutes to play, prevent mode strikes. Suddenly finding time to throw...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Titans cornerback Jason McCourty sure hopes interceptions are contagious, especially after ending his personal 18-game drought.
McCourty got his sixth NFL season off to a strong start picking off Alex Smith twice and tipping another ball to safety Michael Griffin for an interception that helped seal a 26-10 win in Kansas City. It's exactly the start McCourty...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The one constant for Titans safety Michael Griffin has been the change all around him.
Two years ago, former Titans coach Mike Munchak moved the 2007 first-round draft pick from his natural position of free safety to strong safety.
It was supposed to help bolster a paltry run defense, and Griffin's defensive attributes of speed, instinct and cover abilities weren...
