Titans Fans, Meet Valentino Blake

When the Tennessee Titans signed cornerback Antwon Blake this offseason, they did not know that a player with that name would never suit up for them. They will however, have a Valentino Blake on the field this year.  Blake changed his name to Valentino and he had a few reasons to do so. “I wanted to make more of a formal switch, and that’s what I really prefer to be called...

Titans OC: Marcus Mariota is a ‘wow’ QB

It didn’t take long for Terry Robiskie to understand what he has in second-year quarterback Marcus Mariota. After just a handful of offseason practices, the new Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator is already calling Mariota a “wow” quarterback. “Watching some of the plays he made, the one long run he made against Jacksonville was about as unique as I’ve ever seen,...

Titans TE on Derrick Henry: ‘He’s going to be a monster’

It didn’t take long for Tennessee Titans rookie running back Derrick Henry—who stands 6’3″ and weighs almost 250 pounds—to get the attention of his new teammates. And it wasn’t because the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner brought his fancy hardware into the locker room. “I’ve been sizing up Derrick Henry,” Walker said, via ESPN. “He’s a big dude. I might have to put...

Chance Warmack rips former offensive line coach

Chance Warmack didn’t have the nicest things to say about Bob Bostad, his former offensive line coach with the Tennessee Titans. During a roundtable discussion with CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco, Warmack was asked if he’s had to deal with any stubborn coaches during his career, and that’s when he unloaded on Bostad. I had one dude (coach) who played D-III football at linebacker...

Titans GM on blockbuster trade: ‘Best’ decision to ‘bolster’ roster

The Tennessee Titans have executed a historic draft trade with the Los Angeles Rams that includes the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. Two weeks before the start of the draft, the Titans shipped the top pick to Los Angeles for two first-round picks (one in 2017), two second-round picks and two third-round picks (one in 2017). Let’s break down that trade: pic.twitter...

Titans’ GM: Top pick drawing more trade interest

The Titans have the top pick in the 2016 NFL draft, which makes them like a kid who gets more and more friends because he has a pretty sister. Titans general manager Jon Robinson told The Tennessean that he’s fielding more inquiries from teams about trading up for the No. 1 pick. “I would say the interest has increased some. I wouldn’t say there are 31 teams calling, but there...

Report: Titans receiving ‘significant interest’ in first overall pick

The Tennessee Titans may have a decision to make on whether or not the team keeps the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. According to Peter King of MMQB, the Titans have received “significant interest” in the No. 1 pick, with King now believing it is “50-50” on Tennessee keeping the pick or trading it away. One year after taking Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota...

The Tennessee Titans currently hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but at least four teams could reportedly entertain the idea of moving up to the top selection. According to Robert Klemko of MMQB.com, the Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Rams are “in play to trade up to the No. 1 spot.” A blockbuster deal at the top of...

Good-Bye to All That

Last day of blog! Last day of blog! ICYMI, I’m retiring from regular Titans blogging effective March 9, a.k.a today, a.k.a. this will be my last post. I made the announcement a month ago, when I started the offseason positional analyses with the QBs, and now it’s time. Monday, I gave an overview of what I thought the Titans might do in free agency, a post that was partly obviated...

Too early thoughts on the Titans and the draft

PROGRAMMING NOTE: I’m retiring from Titans blogging effective March 9, a.k.a. “tomorrow.” Unless some other really big news breaks between now and lunchtime tomorrow, like yesterday’s DeMarco Murray deal, this will be my next-to-last post here. My final one will be an attempt to say something about the Titans in 2016 and beyond, and probably some concluding thoughts. Unless...

Titans to trade for DeMarco Murray

PROGRAMMING NOTE: I’m retiring from regular Titans blogging March 9. Early draft thoughts post Tuesday, probably around noon CT, then another post Wednesday before I ride off into the sunset of Twitter. Well, that was certainly unexpected news. Adam Schefter dropped the bomb Monday evening, reporting that the Titans were finalizing a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles to acquire...

Thoughts on the Titans and free agency

The legal tampering period starts today at 11 A.M. Central time, so there’s a chance we know soon which players the Titans will have interest in. The first question is, just how active will the Titans be in free agency? Recently, they’ve tended to alternate between going heavy and light in free agency. 2012 was not that big, 2013 they really went in in a big way, 2014 featured...

The holes on the Titans’ depth chart heading into free agency

PROGRAMMING NOTE: ICYMI, I’m retiring from regular Titans blogging. March 9 will be my last date posting here. In the past, I’ve considered this sort of a post, where I look at the Titans’ actual depth chart of a hypothetical version thereof and see where it stands based on which players are scheduled to become free agents. It’s still of some use this year, but I wonder how...

Titans add CB Brice McCain

The Titans jumped into free agency before the new League Year began, signing cornerback Brice McCain. The deal is reportedly a two-year contract worth up to $5 million. The veteran (turned 29 in December) should be in a familiar scheme, as he played for Dick LeBeau’s 2014 Steelers before signing with the Dolphins last offseason. In his season in Pittsburgh, he played in 14 games...

Notes on the positional analyses

PROGRAMMING NOTE: ICYMI, I’m retiring from regular Titans blogging, effective March 9. It’s now been three weeks since I started the positional analyses. A few things have happened since then, there are some things I didn’t include I probably should have, and the range and scope of what I did meant there are some things that kind of fell through the cracks or that I didn...

Titans could trade down, still get blind-side help in draft

One of the NFL’s most drab franchises in recent years, which finished last in arguably the NFL’s worst division, is going to be quite relevant in the months leading up to the 2016 NFL draft. The Titans own the top overall pick, and what they do with that pick will be the topic of plenty of discussion. According to Pro Football Talk they could trade down and still get the left...
