Position Listing
Jimmy Staten
News
The Seahawks have signed 11 players to future contracts, the team announced Wednesday.

Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.

Jalston Fowler
News
Fowler caught a 14-yard pass Sunday against the Raiders.

Fowler has been used almost exclusively as a traditional fullback this season. The 2015 fourth-rounder out of Alabama hasn't been the versatile weapon the Titans were hoping for when they drafted him that early.

Da'Norris Searcy
News
Searcy agreed to reduce his 2017 base salary from $5.625 million to $3.4 million, ESPN.com's Field Yates reports.

Searcy also accepted a pay cut from $6.125 million to $3.8 million for 2018, with the ability to recover up to $750,000 through incentives in both years. He's been a disappointment since signing a four-year, $23.75 million deal with the Titans in 2015, recording 95 tackles and two interceptions in 29 games (27 starts). With Johnathan Cyprien signed in March and 2016 third-round selection Kevin Byard hoping to take on an expanded role, Searcy could face serious competition for a starting job.

Jurrell Casey
News
Casey recorded six tackles and a pair of sacks in Sunday's Week 17 win over Houston.

Casey finishes the season with 44 tackles and 5.0 sacks. He missed a game due to a foot injury, but played in at least 15 contests for the sixth straight season since being picked in the third round of the 2011 draft. The durable defensive lineman is in the midst of a 4-year, $36 million extension, and will be back with the Titans in 2017.

Curtis Riley
News
Riley was promoted to the Titans' active roster on Thursday.

Riley got the call up from the practice squad after Chance Warmack (finger) was placed on IR. The 2015 undrafted free agent spent last season on IR after suffering an ankle injury in August, ending his rookie season hardly before it get started. Riley has played both cornerback and safety in the Titans' defense but figures to contribute the most in special teams this season.

Austin Johnson
No Updates
Sebastian Tretola
News
Tretola was treated for a gunshot wound Sunday but has since been released from the hospital, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

This is the second time Tretola's name has come up in the news for the wrong reasons this offseason, as the offensive lineman was accused of having a role in teammate Tajae Sharpe's April bar skirmish. Thankfully, the gunshot wound is reportedly "minor" in nature and Tretola shouldn't be out of service for long.

Injury
Lower Leg - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Oakland
Kevin Dodd
News
Dodd (foot) hasn't returned to practice since his January surgery, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN reports.

Dodd has undergone surgery to his foot twice in the past year and ended his rookie year short after he was placed on injured reserve due to the issue. Despite his lengthy absence to this point, he remains without a timetable for return. He hopes to return for training camp but good begin on the physically unable to perform list. When he returns he'll likely be the top backup at outside linebacker behind starters Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan.

D'Joun Smith
News
Smith (illness) was removed from the Titans' injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Texans.

Smith was out sick Thursday but returned to practice in full form on Friday. He's all set for Sunday's season finale.

Adoree' Jackson
News
The Titans selected Jackson in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 18th overall.

Jackson has a raw skill set at corner, but this isn't surprising after he split so much time between that position and wide receiver at USC -- not to mention his work as a returner. He's a great athlete, and at the very least his skill set in the meantime features a rare ability to make plays with the football -- he scored eight times as a returner over the last three years, and in 2016 he intercepted five passes. He might come along a bit slowly, but there's a precedent for NFL success for the CB-WR tweener -- Chris Gamble and Champ Bailey come to mind. He probably won't be an IDP factor, but that could change if he gets wide receiver snaps in leagues that award non-defense, non-special teams points.

Sylvester Williams
News
Williams was a limited participant at practice Tuesday due to the recent ankle surgery that he underwent, Terry McCormick of TitansInsider.com reports

It doesn't appear that Williams will be hampered too much from the setback. The Titans expect him to be a full go in the coming days.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Oakland
Avery Williamson
News
Williamson had seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Texans.

Williamson finishes his third NFL campaign with 103 tackles and 2.0 sacks. Seventy-two of those tackles were of the solo variety, placing the middle linebacker among the league's top 30 tacklers. He has improved every season, and should once again anchor the Titans defense next year.

David Fluellen
News
Fluellen and rookie seventh-rounder Khalfani Muhammad will be battling for a roster spot in camp, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.

The Titans are unlikely to keep four running backs with Pro Bowler DeMarco Murray and 2016 second-rounder Derrick Henry already in the fold, leaving one spot for either Fluellen or Muhammad. Fluellen has earned consistent praise from the caching staff and has experience on his side, but Muhammad's ability to contribute on special teams and in a change-of-pace role makes him the early favorite heading into camp.

Wesley Woodyard
News
Woodyard signed a two-year extension with the Titans on Wednesday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

The deal will keep Woodyard in Tennessee through the 2019 season and allows him to earn upwards of $12.75 million across that time span. While the Kentucky product's 57 tackles from this past season pale in comparison to his numbers from 2014 and 2015, Woodyard still finished as the Titans' fourth-leading tackler and should continue to operate as one of the team's top defensive contributors for the foreseeable future.

Daren Bates
News
Bates signed a three-year, $6 million contract with the Titans on Friday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Bates played in all 16 games last season for the Raiders, becoming a staple of the special-teams unit in the process. Titans general manager Jon Robinson said of the newly acquired linebacker: "Bates is another fast, violent player in the kicking game. I like his intensity, like his instincts and his reckless abandon to throw himself in there to make a play." He recorded 12 tackles last year (eight solo).

Mekale McKay
News
McKay signed a contract with the Titans on Tuesday.

A former CFL standout, McKay has yet to find his home in the NFL after having stints with the Colts and Broncos. He'll likely have to stand out as a special teams performer if he hopes to make the 53-man roster.

Aaron Wallace
News
Wallace (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's tilt with the Packers.

Wallace will be sidelined due to a shoulder aliment. The reserve linebacker has only played in four games this season so his absence on Sunday shouldn't factor into the defense's game plan.

Tre McBride
News
McBride was promoted to the Titans' active roster on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McBride will add some depth to at wideout, with Andre Johnson retiring from the team on Monday. The 23-year-old isn't likely to play much of a role on offense, but could see action on special teams.

Harry Douglas
News
Douglas' roster spot doesn't appear to be guaranteed heading into this season, ESPN's Paul Kuharsky reports.

Douglas agreed to a $2 million pay cut last month, which preceded the Titans using two of their first three draft picks on wide receivers. Along with Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor, Tennessee's second pick, Adoree' Jackson can also line up on offense if needed, potentially making the 32-year-old Douglas more expendable. While Douglas' experience and veteran presence bodes well for him, his career-low production of 15 receptions for 210 yards and no touchdowns last season casts further doubt over his value. All told, Douglas could need a strong training camp or an injury to one of his fellow wideouts to make the team.

DaQuan Jones
News
Titans defensive tackle DaQuan Jones just got a promotion, and like anyone would be, he's happy about it, The Tennessean reports.

Jones is eager to showcase why he deserves his starting role, but he's also very aware that the season is a long ways ahead and anything can happen between now and then.

"I'm happy to go into the (OTAs) as a starter, but I know that nothing is set in stone and I know there's plenty of competition for that job," said Jones. "So now I'm just trying to make the most of my opportunity."

Jones, a fourth-round pick last season, played sparingly in the beginning of his rookie year -- appearing in just four of the team's first 13 games. He improved toward the end of the season and got his first start during the last game of the year against the Colts. Jones said he wants to continue to improve and show he can be a force on the defensive line.

"Right now I'm trying to work a lot on my base technique, trying to shed blocks faster and make plays," Jones said. "I'm trying to go into the season and be a playmaker."

Kevin Byard
No Updates
Jordan Gay
News
Gay was signed by the Bills on Saturday, Bills' sideline reporter Sal Capaccio reports.

After spending two seasons with the Bills, Gay was released by the team in September. Dan Carpenter, who missed his second extra-point of the season last week, is still on the roster, so it is unclear who the Bills will go with in Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars. Given that Gay signed with the team the day before the game, Carpenter will presumably get the nod, but will likely have a short-leash if he has any hiccups.

Jonnu Smith
News
Teammate Delanie Walker believes Smith can be a star in the NFL, USA Today's Jason Wolf reports. "One day [Smith] will be better than me," said Walker. "And that's his ultimate goal. And if he didn't feel that way, I wouldn't want him here."

Selected in the third round (No. 100 overall) of this year's draft, Smith has drawn comparisons to Walker and Jordan Reed, with his athleticism and pass-catching skill making up for a lack of ideal height for his position. At 6-foot-3, 248 pounds, Smith is actually closer to the league prototype than Walker or Reed, suggesting he could eventually develop into a capable in-line tight end who stays on the field in all situations. For the time being, Smith likely will be brought along slowly behind the 33-year-old Walker, though the rookie could have a limited role from the jump due to the Titans' affinity for two-TE formations. After averaging 4.1 catches per game in his four seasons at FIU, the 21-year-old impressed at the Combine by finishing second among tight ends in the vertical jump, 20-yard shuttle and 60-yard shuttle, also showing well in the 40-yard dash (4.62) and broad jump (127 inches)

Antwaun Woods
News
Woods was signed to the Titans' active roster Wednesday.

Woods had spent the entire season on the Titans' practice squad. He takes the roster spot of Mehdi Abdesmad (ankle), who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Corey Davis
News
Davis, who was slowed by an ankle issue in OTAs, declared himself 100 percent at Tuesday's minicamp practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

In the process, Davis, the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, made some nice plays in practice. As long as he can stay healthy, the 6-foot-3, 209-pound wideout is set to open the coming season as one of QB Marcus Mariota's top receiving weapons. He's already penciled in as a starter opposite Rishard Matthews, in the slot previously held by Tajae Sharpe.

Jerome Cunningham
News
Cunningham was claimed off waivers by the Titans.

This marks Cunningham's third team this calendar year, as the tight end was once waived by the Giants before getting the ax from the Jets on Tuesday. In nine games last season, the Southern Connecticut State product caught just eight passes for 59 yards. Now in Tennessee, Cunningham will provide depth behind Delanie Walker, Anthony Fasano, and Craig Stevens.

Demontre Hurst
News
Hurst signed with the Titans on Monday.

Hurst spent the past three seasons with the Bears, recording 58 tackles and two interceptions in 32 games played. The 26-year-old figures to add depth and competition to Tennessee's cornerback group ahead of this coming season.

Matt Cassel
News
Cassel suffered a thumb injury that will require surgery, but he is expected to be ready for training camp.

The veteran signal caller will have a pin inserted into his throwing thumb after injuring it earlier in the week. Fortunately, the time frame for his return lines up with the start of training camp, so it's expected that he won't miss any time beyond the remainder of OTAs. Once healthy, Cassel figures to assume the backup role behind Marcus Mariota. The Titans are not expected to add another quarterback for depth in Cassel's absence.

Injury
Thumb - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Oakland
Phillip Supernaw
News
Supernaw re-signed a multi-year deal with the Titans on Friday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Supernaw recorded four receptions for 62 yards last season through 15 games. His contract extension comes on the heels of Anthony Fasano signing with the Dolphins, meaning an expanded role may be in the works for Supernaw next season. Although he isn't the flashiest of tight ends, the 27-year-old has emerged as a solid blocker.

Steven Moore
No Updates
Brynden Trawick
News
Trawick agreed to a 2-year, $4.75 million deal with the Titans on Friday.

Trawick will earn a $3 million base salary, and could see some playing time on defense after earning praise from GM Jon Robinson. The safety was limited primarily to a special teams role with the Raiders last season, but did manage to lead the team with 14 special teams tackles.

Darius Jennings
News
Jennings signed with the Titans on Friday.

Jennings most recently played four games with the Browns in 2015, as he didn't see the field with the Jets all of last season before being waived in April. He'll now have an opportunity to make the Titans' roster, although he's a long shot who will likely be used simply as an extra body during training camp.

Eric Weems
News
Weems agreed to terms with the Titans on Saturday.

The Titans added a special teams ace by inking Weems on Saturday. He racked up 391 kick return yards and 273 punt return yards with the Falcons in 2016. He will take on return duties for the Titans this season but is unlikely to make much of an impact on offense.

Eric Decker
News
Decker will battle rookie third-rounder Taywan Taylor for the slot receiver role in camp, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.

Decker's experience and red zone ability makes him the favorite to win the job, but Tennessee has been very pleased with Taylor after moving up in the draft to snag him. Both are also capable of playing on the outside, though unseating Rishard Matthews or fifth overall pick Corey Davis won't be easy. While this is certainly a good problem to have for the Titans, it's far from ideal for fantasy owners. Regardless of how much work he gets between the 20's, Decker's nose for the end zone should keep him heavily involved in close.

Josue Matias
Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Oakland
No Updates
Nate Palmer
News
Palmer re-signed with the Titans on Friday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

The reserve linebacker played mostly on special teams last season, recording 12 tackles through 14 games. He could see an expanded role on defense next year, but it's unlikely he has value in IDP leagues.

Brian Orakpo
News
Orakpo had one tackle in Sunday's season finale against Houston.

Orakpo needed just half a sack over the final two weeks to tie his career high of 11.0, but failed to get it. On the bright side, the veteran outside linebacker played in all 16 games for the second consecutive season since joining the Titans while racking up a respectable 46 tackles. He looks spry as ever at age 30, and will once again be a threat for double-digit sacks in 2017.

Joe Bacci

Angelo Blackson
News
The Titans have signed four more of their draft picks on Wednesday including: Angelo Blackson, Andy Galilk, Tre McBride and Deiontrez Mount, the team announced.

Tajae Sharpe
News
Sharpe (foot) may have to compete for a roster spot, The Tennessean reports.

A Week 1 starter after being selected in the fifth round of last year's draft, Sharpe failed to advantage of his role, catching only 41 of 83 targets for 522 yards (6.3 YPT) and two touchdowns in 16 games. The Titans responded by drafting Corey Davis in the first round and Taywan Taylor in the the third round, later adding Eric Decker when he was released by the Jets in June. With Decker, Davis and Rishard Matthews all slated for key roles, Sharpe was already staring at a slide down the depth chart before he had surgery on a fractured foot in early June. He's expected back for training camp, but he may have to compete with Harry Douglas, Eric Weems and a few other players for only one or two roster spots.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Oakland
Rishard Matthews
News
Matthews will be part of a much deeper position group in 2017, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

The Titans opted not to re-sign slot receiver Kendall Wright, but they then drafted Corey Davis in the first round and Taywan Taylor in the third round, later adding Eric Decker in June when he was released by the Jets. In an offense already featuring TE Delanie Walker and RBs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, there is suddenly a ton of competition for touches. Marcus Mariota's continued development should mean there's a bit more production to go around, but Matthews is still unlikely to match the kind of volume he saw over last season's final eight weeks, when he scored six touchdowns while averaging 4.8 catches for 73.5 yards on 8.8 targets per game. Decker's presence in the red zone could prove especially problematic for Matthews' scoring production, as the former Jet has caught 51 touchdown passes in 81 games since the end of his rookie season. To be fair, Matthews was one of the league's most efficient red-zone receivers last year, catching 12 of his 15 targets in the area, with five of his six targets inside the 10-yard line converted into scores.

Tye Smith
News
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.

Picks that have signed are:

Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.

The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.

Josh Carraway
News
The Titans selected Carraway in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 227th overall.

Carraway was a defensive standout at TCU, registering 21.5 tackles for loss and 16 total sacks over the last two seasons. He's quick and can bend around the edge, but he is light for a pass rusher by NFL standards. He'll need to add bulk, but he could be a part of the Titans' pass-rushing corps in time.

Jayon Brown
News
The Titans selected Brown in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 155th overall.

Brown's a bit undersized as an outside linebacker at 6-foot, 231, but he was an absolute tackling machine in his final year at UCLA. He racked up 119 tackles -- including 7.0 for loss as a senior -- and also showed some ball skills with three interceptions. Brown likely profiles as a special teamer to start his career with the Titans, but he does add depth behind Brian Orakpo at outside linebacker.

Brice McCain
News
McCain (knee) was able to return to Sunday's game against the Colts, Jim Wyatt of Titans Online reports.

McCain was forced to the sideline earlier in the contest due to a minor knee injury, but was eventually able to return and even record an interception. He'll likely be good to go in Week 12 against the Bears, barring any setbacks.

Jonathan Krause
News
Krause was released from the Bucs practice squad Wednesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The 24-year-old had been brought back to the pratice squad back on Sept. 28, but was jettisoned Wednesday to make room for the return of Russell Hansbrough and Josh Keyes to the unit. Krause has shown some promise at both receiver and returner, so a potential return later in the season isn't out of the question.

Derrick Henry

Henry has impressed coach Mike Mularkey since returning for organized team activities, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.

Henry missed the first couple weeks of Tennessee's voluntary offseason program while studying toward earning his degree from the University of Alabama, but he's since returned and drawn praise for his performance in OTAs. According to Mularkey, Henry's time away from the team hasn't prevented him from looking "really good for this time of the year." Coming off 490 rushing yards, five touchdowns and an average of 4.5 yards per carry as a rookie, Henry is expected to once again work behind DeMarco Murray this season. Despite his No. 2 pegging, however, Henry should see more action than most other backups, as the Titans intend to keep him plenty involved regardless of Murray's presence.

Delanie Walker
News
Walker's stock is unlikely to be affected much by Tennessee's selection of tight end Jonnu Smith in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Smith will be able to contribute as both a blocker and receiver out of the gate, but his playing time shouldn't surpass what recently departed free agent Anthony Fasano saw in 2016. While Phillip Supernaw is also still on hand to play a predominantly blocking role, Walker will remain the team's clear-cut No. 1 option at the position coming off an 800-yard, seven-touchdown campaign.

LeShaun Sims
News
Sims (concussion) practiced fully on Wednesday.

Sims entered the concussion protocol after Saturday's loss to Jacksonville. Players often miss at least one game after being concussed but Sims appears on pace to return without missing a game.

Karl Klug
News
Klug (Achilles) figures to be back on the field in six weeks, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website reports.

Klug tore his Achilles back in the December and has been on the long road to recovery ever since. "I am sick of missing practices," the defensive end said. "But they have me on a goods schedule, doing rehab, and I'm working to get back as fast as I can." Just because he's not on the field doesn't mean Klug is not around, as head coach Mike Mularkey put it, the 29-year-old "lives in the building and should have an address here." It seems unlikely Klug will be ready for the beginning of training camp, but he should take the field not long after.

Justin Staples
News
The Titans have promoted Justin Staples to their live roster and added fellow linebacker Yawin Smallwood to their practice squad.

Staples, who was previously with Cleveland, has yet to play a down in the NFL. Smallwood was cut before the regular season by Atlanta.

Marc Mariani
News
Mariani recorded a 15-yard carry Sunday against Houston.

Mariani's only offensive touch of the season came in the season finale. The return specialist finishes with 560 kickoff return yards and 235 punt return yards without a touchdown. He made the Pro Bowl back in 2010, but may not be back with the Titans next year after this pedestrian campaign.

Alex Tanney
News
Tanney was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, Jason Wolf of the Tennessean reports.

Tanney has been on the Titans practice squad since Week 2 and he'll suit up for the team for the first time in Week 17. He was promoted as a result of Marcus Mariota (leg) moving to injured reserve. Tanney will serve as the backup quarterback behind Matt Cassel.

Johnathan Cyprien
News
Cyprien suffered a minor ankle injury in Titans' minicamp Tuesday, Jason Wolf of the Tennessean reports.

Head coach Mike Mularkey confirmed it's a minor injury so Cyprien should be ready to go for training camp. Look for more updates to come at that time.

Ryan Succop
News
Succop made his lone field goal attempt from 35 yards and added three extra points in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Texans.

Succop finishes with 22 made field goals on 24 attempts while converting 39 of 41 extra points. He didn't miss a single kick after Week 8, converting his final 11 field goal tries and 22 PATs. The 30-year-old veteran will be back with the Titans in 2017 for the final year of his three-year deal.

Marcus Mariota
News
After being limited during offseason workouts, Mariota (fibula) indicated that he's healthy as training camp approaches, the Titans' official site reports. "I will be ready to go with everything," the QB noted in advance of the start of camp on Friday. "I will be full-go (in) practice, and I will be able to do everything with the guys."

Now past last year's fractured fibula, Mariota seems poised to continue his ascent up fantasy rankings in his third season as a pro. Aiding his cause in that regard is that the Titans' strong ground game should be further complemented by a passing attack that has been bolstered by the addition of accomplished veteran receiver Eric Decker as well as the selection (at No. 5 overall) of dynamic young wideout Corey Davis.

Johnson (neck) practiced in full Wednesday.

Johnson missed each of the Titans' last two games with a neck injury. Now back at practice -- and participating without limitation -- he appears set to play this weekend against the Packers.

Kourtnei Brown
News
Brown was re-signed to the Bucs on Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The linebacker/defensive end returns to the Bucs after having been waived in late September. Brown displayed some play-making potential in preseason with three sacks, a pick-six and a fumble recovery and also played 19 total snaps between defense and special teams in Week 2. However, he's unlikely to receive a call-up to the active roster unless injury strikes.

Derrick Morgan
News
Morgan recorded five tackles in Sunday's season finale against the Texans.

Morgan finishes the 2016 campaign with 33 tackles and a career-high 9.0 sacks. Fellow outside linebacker Brian Orakpo added 10.5 sacks on the other side, as the two pass rushers formed one of the most effective tandems in the league. Rookie Kevin Dodd was supposed to play in a rotation with Orakpo and Morgan, but foot injuries and ineffectiveness prevented him from sapping many snaps. Morgan will be a major component of Tennessee's defense next season after racking up at least six sacks in four of the past five campaigns.

Victor Ochi
News
Ochi was waived by the Chiefs on Monday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Ochi signed with the Chiefs in January after appearing in two games for the Jets in 2016. His release opened a roster spot for the signing of LB Tourek Williams.

Kalan Reed

Reed was promoted to the Titans' active roster Monday.

Reed, a rookie seventh-rounder from Southern Mississippi, was previously stationed on Tennessee's practice squad, but he'll now replace veteran cornerback Perrish Cox, who was released in a corresponding transaction Monday.

Logan Ryan
News
Ryan signed a three-year, $30 million contract with the Titans on Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

The first day of free agency had been quiet for the Titans prior to the shrewd signing of Ryan, a 26-year-old corner who led the Patriots in tackles in 2016. In addition to being a sure tackler, Ryan has shown strong cover skills, racking up 25 pass breakups and six interceptions over the past two seasons. He figures to immediately earn a starting role in the Titans' secondary.

Jace Amaro
News
Amaro likely will have to compete for a roster spot, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.

With Delanie Walker and third-round pick Jonnu Smith occupying two roster spots, the Titans probably prefer to keep at least one tight end who specializes in blocking. Amaro doesn't fit the bill and may thus find himself looking for a third NFL team ahead of his fourth professional season. The 2014 second-round pick had 38 receptions as a rookie with the Jets, but he missed all of 2015 with a torn labrum and caught only three passes in three games with Tennessee last season.

DeMarco Murray
News
Murray (finger) is healthy and ready for the start of training camp, Paul Kuharsky of 104-5 The Zone reports.

Murray recently underwent a minor procedure on the ring finger on his right hand to address an issue that dates back to the start of the 2016 season. Although he missed a little practice time in June, the seventh-year Oklahoma product should be operating at full speed from the outset of training camp.

Mehdi Abdesmad
News
Abdesmad (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

The defensive end suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's loss to the Jaguars, effectively ending his season. In two games with the team he recorded one tackle, primarily serving a reserve role. The Titans promoted Antwaun Woods from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Taywan Taylor
News
Taylor had a consistent offseason and looked like a good fit in the slot, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.

Selected in the third round of this year's draft at No. 72 overall, Taylor saw his rookie-year prospects take a major hit in June when the Titans signed Eric Decker, who largely worked out of the slot in New York the past two seasons. Decker is perfectly capable of playing outside, but with Rishard Matthews and No. 5 overall pick Corey Davis also on the roster, the 30-year-old mostly figures to operate inside. Despite his strong performance this offseason, Taylor likely will be left to battle Tajae Sharpe (foot) and Harry Douglas for the No. 4 receiver job, with the rookie seemingly ticketed for the slot role in 2018 after Decker's one-year contract expires.
