The Titans don't intend to exercise Conklin's fifth-year option ahead of Friday's deadline, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Conklin was an immediate starter for two seasons after the Titans made him the No. 8 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. However, a concussion and a pair of knee injuries limited the right tackle to nine games in 2018. Since the fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only, it appears Tennessee won't take the risk of Conklin staying healthy. The Michigan State product is thus scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, barring the two sides reaching a more team-friendly extension beforehand.
