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.
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.
Casey's deal is worth $60.4 million over four years, including $20 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. His latest contract comes after signing a four-year, $36 million pact with Tennessee back in 2014, evidencing the substantial value the franchise considers him to possess. A third-round pick in 2011, Casey has emerged as one of the league's most disruptive interior defensive linemen, registering 327 tackles and 33 sacks while missing just two games and being named to two Pro Bowls over six seasons.
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.
Dodd underwent foot surgery in early June, and he's feeling a lot better now. Expect to see him in a special teams role and a backup to Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan once Week 1 rolls around.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The injury is one that Bates may be able to play through depending on the severity of the dislocation. Although it doesn't look too serious at the moment, Bates' finger is something to keep an eye on moving forward.
Wallace is battling for a depth role at linebacker, so any missed practice time would certainly hinder his chances of making the 53-man roster.
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.
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.
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."
Smith's most memorable play on the Titans' third day of camp was a red-zone drop, but that sequence isn't representative of how well the third-rounder out of Florida International has handled the high volume of passes thrown his way. He has also earned praise from coach Mike Mularkey for his desire to learn and improve. Tennessee has the luxury of bringing him along slowly behind veteran Delanie Walker, but that doesn't mean Smith won't make an impact in his rookie campaign.
Davis is week-to-week with a hamstring injury that's nagged him since the beginning of August. His absence Saturday should mean more first-team reps for Tre McBride and Taywan Taylor.
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.
Cassel getting the green light to play in preseason action suggests the thumb injury that ailed him throughout OTAs and minicamp is a thing of the past. He should rotate in before Alex Tanney but after starter Marcus Mariota.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Decker, who twisted his ankle during Wednesday's practice, has been sidelined due to the minor issue as the Titans continue to play it safe with the veteran wide receiver. Tre McBride and Taywan Taylor could be in line for additional reps with the first team on Saturday with Decker out.
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.
Still rehabbing from June surgery to repair a foot fracture, Sharpe wasn't quite ready to practice Saturday as the Titans opened training camp. He's expected to return at some point in August, but he may have to compete for a roster spot after the team added Eric Decker, first-round pick Corey Davis and third-round pick Taywan Taylor during the offseason. Sharpe started 10 of 16 games as a fifth-round rookie last year, catching only 41 of 83 targets for 522 yards (6.3 yards per target).
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's 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Henry failed to find much room against the stout New York front, but it was encouraging to see him suit up after tweaking his foot/ankle Thursday. He'll serve as DeMarco Murray's backup as long as the veteran stays healthy, but the 2016 second-rounder is one Murray injury away from inheriting one of the league's most desirable running back positions behind Tennessee's tremendous offensive line.
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.
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.
Klug's long journey back to the field seems like its finally coming to a close. The seven-year vet tore his Achilles last December and has been itching a return since. Klug will likely ease back into the swing of things, but it'll be a good sign to see him out on the field again.
Tanney took over for Marcus Mariota after two drives and played the rest of the contest except for a brief period when he had to sit two snaps after absorbing a big hit on one of his seven sacks taken. The former trick shot video star is unlikely to beat out Matt Cassel for the backup job and this poor performance did nothing to help his case.
Head coach Mike Mularkey confirmed it's a minor injury. Cyprien should be ready to go for training camp. Look for more updates to come at that time.
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.
The biggest takeaway from this one is that Mariota looked completely healthy after fracturing his fibula late last season, showing no hesitation about leaving the pocket against New York's fearsome pass rush. The third-year quarterback's workload should ramp up from the two drives he saw in this one as the preseason progresses.
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.
The Stony Brook University product made one tackle in the two NFL appearances he made last season, and he was vying for a special teams job. Preparing to miss the entire season, it's no surprise Ochi was untouched on waivers and sent to injured reserve.
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.
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.
Murray rejoined his teammates Monday after missing more than a week of practice and sitting out the preseason opener due to a hamstring injury. While there probably wouldn't be any question if this were a regular-season game, the Titans might opt to take a cautious approach and hold their lead back out until the third week of the exhibition schedule. Murray doesn't have much of anything left to prove, but there's no denying that Derrick Henry is among the most talented backups in the league. Coming off a rookie season in which he averaged 4.4 yards per carry, the Heisman winner has utilized training camp to make a strong push for a larger share of the workload in his sophomore campaign.
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.
It remains relatively unclear as to when Brinkley suffered the groin injury that has been plaguing him, but any time missed could be detrimental for the fringe roster player. If Brinkley is unable to play in the team's second preseason game Saturday, it could all but end his time in Tennessee.
Taylor led his team in targets and receiving yards, featuring prominently with Corey Davis (hamstring) sitting. He's getting much less preseason attention than the fifth overall pick, but the third-rounder out of Western Kentucky has potential if he can carve out a meaningful role.
