Free-agent PK Sergio Castillo (Jets) and PK Lirim Hajrullahu (Panthers) recently worked out for the Tennessee Titans.

The Tennessee Titans signed free-agent TE Luke Stocker (Falcons) to an undisclosed contract Saturday, July 31.

Footballguys view: Stocker is merely a blocking tight end. He has a chance to make the team as the #3 tight end if they prioritize his running game contributions over Jared Pinkney's pass-catching ability.

  Titans | Bud Dupree activated from COVID list    Sat Jul 31, 06:32 PM

Tennessee Titans LB Bud Dupree (knee) was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, July 31.

Footballguys view: Dupree isn't a sure thing to be 100% for Week 1 coming off of an ACL tear. The Titans will have to chase and contain Kyler Murray to open the season, so we'll be watching the reports about Dupree's recovery from surgery to add to the forecast of that intriguing matchup.

  Titans | Taylor Lewan avoids injured lists    Sat Jul 24, 04:38 PM

Tennessee Titans OT Taylor Lewan (knee) was not placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list or Active/Non-Football Injury list at the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: The Titans line should be in a lot better shape this year with Lewan's return. This should be the best offense of the Ryan Tannehill era in Tennessee even though the team lost offensive coordinator Arthur Smith when he became the Falcons head coach.

  Titans | A.J. Brown ready to practice    Sat Jul 24, 04:36 PM

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown (knees) was not placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list or Active/Non-Football Injury list at the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: This is a great sign after he had surgery on both knees this offseason. He was playing through pain in 2020 and should be in the best form we've seen him to date, which is an exciting prospect now that Julio Jones will be on the other side of the formation and drawing attention from defenses.

Footballguys view: Dupree's appearance on this list isn't surprising, as he suffered a mid-season ACL tear last year. We'll be watching to see how quickly he gets back on the field and into shape in anticipation of the season opener against Kyler Murray and the Cardinals.

  Titans | NFI list for two players    Sat Jul 24, 04:17 PM

Tennessee Titans CB Caleb Farley (back) and C Aaron Brewer (undisclosed) were placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Saturday, July 24.

Footballguys view: Farley had back surgery before the draft, which allowed him to drop to the Titans #22 pick even though he might have been as good as or better than #8 pick Jaycee Horn and #9 Patrick Surtain Jr. on the field. If he doesn't get on the practice field soon, Farley may not be able to make a significant impact this year even though the team desperately needs help at cornerback.

  Titans | Monty Rice signs rookie deal    Sat Jul 24, 01:36 PM

Tennessee Titans LB Monty Rice on Saturday, July 24, signed his four-year rookie contract, the team announced. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: Rice has a chance to replace Rashaan Evans next year after the team declines to pick up Evans fifth-year option. The rookie is better on early downs with a nose for the football against the run, but might need work to improve his coverage game.

  Titans | Big role for Anthony Firkser?    Wed Jul 21, 09:21 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Anthony Firkser is 'in line to play a much bigger role' in the offense in 2021, according to Jim Wyatt of TennesseeTitans.com.

Footballguys view: Firkser's upside came down a bit when Julio Jones was signed because he was set to be as high as #2 in the target pecking order, but he still has the ability to be relevant in fantasy leagues as the primary receiving tight end in an offense that isn't deep at wide receiver or featuring an experienced pass-catching running back. Consider him a possible TE2 pick late in deep leagues or more likely a player to have on waiver wire speed dial if he opens hot against the Cardinals in Week 1.

  Titans | Derrick Henry quick to the line    Thu Jul 15, 11:02 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry averaged 10.87 mph when crossing the line of scrimmage in 2020, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, the best of any running back with at least 150 carries.

Footballguys view: The Titans did a good job of creating rushing lanes for Henry, and the big man builds steam in a hurry. With the addition of WR Julio Jones, opposing defenses are going to have a lot to contend with. That means Henry should be able to keep his MPH high when hitting the hole.

  Titans | Derrick Henry a force of nature    Mon Jul 12, 09:51 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry led the league with 1,073 rushing yards after contact in 2021, according to Pro Football Reference.

Footballguys view: Henry is a truckload when he gets a head of steam. That's always been the best part of his game and the Titans give him plenty of opportunities to run over and through defenders. Expect more of that this season. The Titans want to make a Super Bowl run, and that comes on the back of Henry. He's the centerpiece of what they do on offense and might see some lighter defensive fronts because of the weapons on the outside like Julio Jones and A.J. Brown.

  Titans | Tennessee unlikely to pursue Golden Tate    Sat Jul 10, 04:27 PM

Free-agent WR Golden Tate (Giants) likely will not receive interest from the Tennessee Titans, in the opinion of TennesseeTitans.com's Jim Wyatt.

Footballguys view: Last month, Tate said he's looking at signing with the Titans, Colts, and Rams. He's from Tennessee, but it sounds like any sort of homecoming will not happen in 2021. The Titans upgraded their WR corps in a huge way when they traded for superstar Julio Jones, and they'll roll forward with Jones and A.J. Brown as their primary targets at the position. We'll see what kind of market Tate has once training camp starts, although there is a chance he gets a non-guaranteed deal before that time.

  Titans | Ty Sambrailo on the bubble?    Wed Jul 7, 03:13 PM

  Titans | Delanie Walker expects to sign soon    Mon Jul 5, 08:52 AM

Free-agent TE Delanie Walker (Titans) expects to sign with a team before training camp.

Footballguys view: Walker has been getting a bit of interest on the open market. He opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID concerns but is back in action for the 2021 season. The 49ers could be his landing spot. Walker played for the 49ers from 2006 to 2012.

  Titans | Anthony Firkser to be involved in red zone    Thu Jul 1, 06:47 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Anthony Firkser is expected to be a target in the red zone this season, according to head coach Mike Vrabel.

Footballguys view: Firkser is seen as a deep sleeper by Fantasy GMs although some of the excitement around him has dwindled since the team traded for WR Julio Jones. In 2020, Firkser ran over 70 percent of his routes from the slot, the highest rate out of all tight ends in the league. He's a late-round flier you can take as a TE2 with upside in 2021.

  Titans | A.J. Brown still recovering    Wed Jun 30, 11:39 AM

Tennessee Titans WR A.J. Brown (knees) wasn't able to practice during offseason workouts as he's still recovering from surgery on both knees. 'It's been a real slow grind for me,' Brown said. 'I've done a lot of lifting weights, cardio, film (work), just watching and trying to learn as much as possible. Not kill time, but make the most of it to be honest with you.'

Footballguys view: Brown showed his incredible toughness last year after suffering the injury in Week 2. He didn't look like himself (obviously) but he still posted 70 catches for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns. Those stats made him the no.10 overall fantasy wide receiver last year in standard-scoring leagues. This year, with Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith moving on in free agency, Brown could post better numbers and finish in the top-5 at his position.

  Titans | Zach Ertz unlikely an option for TEN    Sat Jun 26, 04:10 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz likely will not be a trade target for the Tennessee Titans, in the opinion of TennesseeTitans.com's Jim Wyatt.

Footballguys view: The Bills, Colts and Jaguars are among the other teams that are possible trade destinations for Ertz because of need or familiarity with his game. The Eagles asking price has probably been too high to get a deal done earlier in the offseason, and it's arguable that Ertz isn't exactly a bargain at 8.5 million dollars in a very tight year with the salary cap. The Eagles will have to ponder that if they can't trade him, because a release is also in play. What seemed unlikely earlier in the offseason - Ertz playing for the Eagles in 2021 - becomes a stronger possibility with every passing day.

Free-agent CB Kevin Peterson (Cardinals) agreed to terms with the Tennessee Titans Thursday, June 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived LB Justus Reed.

Footballguys view: Peterson is probably a long shot to make the roster, but if first-round pick Caleb Farley isn't over his back issues, the Titans may need additional depth at cornerback.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones and a sixth-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft were officially acquired by the Tennessee Titans Wednesday, June 9, in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2022 draft and a conditional fourth-round selection in the 2023 draft.

Footballguys view: Now wearing the no.2, Jones is there to help put the Titans over the top. The addition of Jones means the Titans can go toe-to-toe with high-powered offenses like the Bills or the Chiefs.

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill restructured his contract Tuesday, June 8, to create more than $15 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: We're certain Tannehill was happy to restructure. The move was to help facilitate the trade for WR Julio Jones, who will make $15.3 million guaranteed this season. The Titans have the weapons around Tannehill to make a Super Bowl run in 2021.

  Titans | Tennessee to acquire Julio Jones    Sun Jun 6, 12:05 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will be acquired by the Tennessee Titans in exchange for at least a second-round draft choice, according to sources. The deal may not be official for a few days since Jones needs to take a physical.

Footballguys view: The Titans can entertain visions of going deep in the playoffs again with the best offense they have had in the Ryan Tannehill era. The Falcons basically had no choice unless they were going to push even more cap pain off into the future, and the team was loathe to do that in the first year of a new regime. The biggest fantasy winners are Kyle Pitts, Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry, and the biggest losers are Matt Ryan, Josh Reynolds, and Anthony Firkser, but the best move is to buy A.J. Brown in redraft leagues if his ADP falls. Check out our free winners and losers article for more details.

Free-agent DT Abry Jones (Jaguars) signed with the Tennessee Titans Thursday, June 3. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived DT Daylon Mack and DT Jullian Taylor.

Footballguys view: Jones has been a solid rotational player for the Jaguars and the Titans have seen a lot of him after he spent eight years in Jacksonville. Tennessee has snaps up for grabs at defensive tackle after Daquon Jones left for Carolina in free agency. The team also signed journeyman Trevon Coley to add to the roster shuffle at defensive tackle.
