Pruitt hauled in his only target for a one-yard touchdown in Week 1 against Denver. Pruitt opened the scoring for Tennessee, hauling in his short touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill in the end zone. Despite the early contribution, Pruitt worked as depth among the tight end corps, playing near an equal amount as Anthony Firkser and behind Jonnu Smith. Pruitt worked primarily as a blocker in past seasons, and will again to begin the 2020 campaign.
Pruitt agreed to a contract with the Titans on Saturday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. Pruitt appeared in 31 games for the Titans over the last two seasons, and he'll rejoin the team after a brief time on the open market. The 27-year-old totaled 15 catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns, so he's unlikely to become a significant factor in the passing game in 2020.
Pruitt caught all four of his targets for 28 yards in three postseason games. The 27-year-old worked as a reserve tight end for Tennessee all season, but he found more involvement in the passing game after the Week 11 bye with Delanie Walker (ankle) injured. Pruitt totaled six catches for 90 yards and one touchdown in 16 games this season. He's headed for free agency in March and is likely to fill a similar role wherever he lands in 2020.
Pruitt hauled in both of his targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 17 win over the Texans. Pruitt worked behind Jonnu Smith as the team's primary tight end, but proved to be more impactful on the stat sheet. His primary contribution came early in the second quarter, when he caught a one-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill. Pruitt failed to contribute for much of the regular season, but he did record all six of his receptions starting in Week 12. At the conclusion of the season, Pruitt will hit free agency and should remain a depth option wherever he lands. However, in the immediate future, he'll look to help Tennessee try to go on a deep playoff run.
Pruitt hauled in both of his targets for 15 yards in the team's Week 16 loss to the Saints. Pruitt recorded both of his catches in the third quarter, the first of which went for five yards in the midst of a drive that ended in a touchdown. He later added a 10-yard reception, logging multiple targets and catches in a contest for the first time this season. He'll look to remain involved in the team's Week 17 matchup against the Texans.
