  Titans | Elijah Molden agrees to terms    Thu Jul 22, 08:25 PM

Tennessee Titans third-round draft choice CB Elijah Molden agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Titans Thursday, July 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Molden can improve the Titans slot corner position right away and help a defense that has had a lot of trouble stopping the pass.

  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

Tennessee Titans OT Ty Sambrailo could end up getting released this summer if the team chooses to keep only one veteran tackle and he isn't able to beat out second-round rookie OT Dillon Radunz and OL Kendall Lamm for the starting right tackle or swing tackle job, according to ESPN.com's Turron Davenport.

  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.

  Titans | Kevin Peterson agrees to terms    Thu Jun 17, 04:29 PM

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.

  Titans | Julio Jones officially joins Tennessee    Wed Jun 9, 05:13 PM

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.

  Titans | Ryan Tannehill restructures    Tue Jun 8, 12:36 PM

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.

  Titans | TE Firkser Busy at OTAs    Fri May 28, 03:20 PM

Jim Wyatt, from TennesseeTitans.com, believes the busiest pass catcher on Thursday was probably tight end Anthony Firkser.

Footballguys view: With Jonnu Smith (Patriots) moving on in free agency, it opens up the door of opportunity for Firkser to do more. He's not a great blocker, and that may limit how many snaps he gets on the Titans run-heavy offense, but he's their top pass-catcher at the position. Firkser is more of a streaming option for Fantasy GMs in 2021, and his current ADP is TE26 (14.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Titans | RB Evans Works with Receivers    Fri May 28, 03:17 PM

Jim Wyatt, from TennesseeTitans.com, reports second-year running back Darrynton Evans worked with the receivers this week at OTAs.

Footballguys view: Evans has talent as a runner and receiver out of the backfield, and that's why the Titans picked him up in the third round of the 2020 NFL draft. He missed much of his rookie season due to injury and finished his first year as a pro with 14 carries for 54 yards, two catches for 27 yards and one touchdown in five games of action. Derrick Henry is the clear lead back, but Evans could get on the field more on passing downs. Evans is competing with veteran addition Brian Hill for that pass-catching role.

  Titans | Julio Jones not headed to Tennessee?    Thu May 27, 10:15 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is a 'longshot' to be traded to the Tennessee Titans, a source told ESPN's Dianna Russini.

Footballguys view: Jones could fit on a ton of teams, and the veteran superstar is looking to get out of Atlanta. The Titans lost Corey Davis in free agency but they still have A.J. Brown as their top target. They're a run-heavy offense, so the need for Jones isn't as prevalent as with other teams.

Tennessee Titans second-round draft choice OT Dillon Radunz, fourth-round draft choice WR Dez Fitzpatrick, sixth-round draft choice WR Racey McMath and sixth-round draft choice S Brady Breeze signed four-year contracts with the Titans Thursday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is a player we're excited about. He lined up mostly in the "X" receiver spot on the outside during his college career at Louisville. He has good ball skills and concentration which will make him a trusted target for QB Ryan Tannehill in the Titans offense. Fitzpatrick isn't overly fast or overly physical so that limits his fantasy potential.

Footballguys view: Henry breaks off those runs because he breaks tackles with ease. He's one of the toughest running backs to bring down single-handedly, and that's going to continue in 2021. Expect more of the same production from the big-bodied back.

He started his college career at Arizona State and transferred to Memphis where he flourished. White filled the air with footballs in college and is not afraid to challenge a defense.

Footballguys view: Hill has spent most of his career with the Falcons but now is going to Tennessee to provide veteran depth behind Derrick Henry. The all-purpose back from the University of Wyoming has flashed a bit here and there, but he's best used as a reserve or change-of-pace back you can use in space. It's a solid move for the Titans.

Footballguys view: Forristall was a high school quarterback and starting for his team until some freshman named Trevor Lawrence took over. He switched to tight end and became a three-star recruit when he committed to Alabama. While with the Crimson Tide, Forristall was banged up quite a bit. If healthy, Forristall knows how to find a soft spot in a zone and gives good effort as a run blocker.
