Jurrell Casey
News
Casey recorded six tackles (three solo) and one forced fumble Sunday against the Rams.

While Casey had an impressive tackle count Sunday, with an average of 3.7 tackles per game this season, he needs the added stat line to vault into fantasy relevance. The seventh-year pro has five sacks this season to help back it up, but he should be viewed as a risky option in Week 17 against a Jaguars offense that rarely fumbles the ball or allows sacks.

Austin Johnson
No Updates
Kevin Dodd
News
Dodd (undisclosed) wasn't listed on the Titans' injury report Wednesday, Scott Petrak of The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Dodd hasn't suited up since Week 3 against the Seahawks, when he played just 21 total snaps and made one solo tackle. With starting outside linebacker Derrick Morgan (abdomen) sitting out of practice Wednesday, a healthy Dodd could be in store for a more significant role Sunday against the Browns if Morgan is unable to play.

Rico Gafford
No Updates
Dion Lewis
News
Lewis' four-year, $19.8 million contract with the Titans contains $5.75 million fully guaranteed and another $2.5 million guaranteed for injury only, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

While he had an argument to be considered the top running back in free agency, Lewis ultimately signed a contract much smaller than Jerick McKinnon's deal with the 49ers and landed with a team that already has an established power runner in Derrick Henry. The Titans likely plan to deploy a dual-threat backfield with Lewis handling passing-down work and mixing in on early downs while Henry serves as the main thumper on early downs and near the goal line. The 27-year-old Lewis played double-digit games for the first time since 2011 last season, taking 180 carries for 896 yards (5.0 average) and six touchdowns and catching 32 of 36 targets for 214 yards (5.9 per target) and another three scores. He'll have a hard time replicating the rushing and scoring production if Henry stays healthy, but Lewis' role as a pass catcher should increase. Lewis displayed his ability in that department back in 2015, when he caught 36 of 50 targets for 388 yards (7.8 per target) and two scores in only seven games.

Tim Semisch
News
Semisch signed a reserve/future contract with the Titans on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

The Northern Illinois product has yet to make his NFL debut since going undrafted in 2014. He'll join the Titans for their offseason program, but the tight end may need to stand out in those workouts in order to stick around through training camp.

Adoree' Jackson
News
Jackson recorded a team-high 11 solo tackles to go with two passes defensed in Thursday's 40-17 loss to the Steelers. He also rushed once for five yards.

Jackson has received at least one touch on offense in three consecutive weeks, and he's been effective with 55 yards on five carries over that span. He was matched up with fellow USC rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster for much of the night, holding him to just four catches for 47 yards. Jackson's defensive game is improving every week, and his explosiveness with the ball in his hands is already elite.

Rashaan Evans
No Updates
Joshua Kalu
No Updates
David Fluellen
News
Fluellen didn't get a touch in Saturday's 35-14, divisional-round loss to New England.

With DeMarco Murray (knee) sidelined, Fluellen was the only Tennessee running back dressed besides Derrick Henry. Henry was able to carry the load, however, leaving Fluellen on the sidelines. Fluellen has one more year left on his deal with the Titans and will hope to once again end up on the right side of the roster bubble in 2018.

Wesley Woodyard
News
Woodyard recorded just three solo tackles, but he also recovered a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Rams.

While Woodyard's total of three tackles was his second-lowest of the season, the 31-year-old linebacker still established a new career high of 119 for the year, surpassing his previous best of 117. Owners in IDP formats relying on Woodyard this week won't mind the low tackle output, as he was able to scoop up a Jared Goff fumble in the second quarter and take it four yards to the house.

Daren Bates
News
Bates (knee) is ready to go for Monday's contest against the Colts, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

After a healthy week of practice, Bates was a late addition to the injury report Saturday. It looks like the team was just being cautious with his designation, as he is suiting up for Week 6. Look for him to resume his role providing depth at linebacker.

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.

Injury
Back - Questionable for the start of training camp
Gimel President
News
President was claimed off waivers by the Titans on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans official website reports.

President spent his rookie season with the Texans, seeing action in four games and tallying three total tackles. However, the 6-foot-3 outside linebacker was released earlier this week, which allowed the Titans to swoop in and claim him off waivers. Despite being picked up by Tennessee, President isn't guaranteed a spot on the final roster and will need to have a strong training camp and preseason in order to have a shot.

Harry Douglas
News
Douglas didn't record a reception in Saturday's 35-14, divisional-round loss to New England.

This performance was in line with expectations for Douglas, who recorded just one catch all season while serving as Tennessee's fifth wide receiver. After nine seasons between the Falcons and Titans, the 33-year-old free agent will look to latch on with a new team this offseason. There's no guarantee Douglas is even able to stay in the league, let alone contribute noteworthy numbers next season.

DaQuan Jones
News
Jones (biceps) will return to the Titans on a three-year, $21 million deal, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jones' 2017 season ended in Week 13 against the Texans, suffering a torn biceps that required season-ending surgery. He racked up 31 tackles (19 solo) and a career-high 3.5 sacks prior to the issue and should return to his starting role for the Titans in 2018 assuming he's healthy.

Injury
Biceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kevin Byard
News
Byard sustained a shoulder injury in Thursday's 40-17 loss to the Steelers, but Titans head coach Mike Mularkey expects the safety to be OK for the team's Week 12 matchup with the Colts, freelance sports writer John Glennon reports.

The injury didn't result in Byard missing any time during the blowout loss, as he played 77 total snaps (73 on defense) and finished with a season-low two tackles to go with a pass breakup. With 53 tackles and a league-leading six interceptions on the campaign, Byard has emerged as top-flight IDP in the secondary. The early word regarding his health is encouraging, but Byard will likely need to practice in some capacity during the upcoming week in order for Mularkey and team doctors to sign off on the second-year player being available against Indianapolis.

Jonnu Smith
News
Smith (knee) traveled to Los Angeles for on-field workouts in mid-March with teammates Marcus Mariota, Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews, Taywan Taylor and Tajae Sharpe, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.

Despite suffering a torn MCL in a divisional-round playoff loss to New England, the 2017 third-round pick wasn't wearing a knee brace in the group photo from the recent workout session. His ability to run routes and catch passes suggests he should be available next week when the Titans begin their offseason program under new head coach Mike Vrabel. Smith should see a slight uptick from last year's total of 30 targets, but there won't be a ton of room for growth unless Delanie Walker struggles to stay healthy. The two tight ends have similar physical profiles, with Smith perhaps setting up as the heir apparent to his 33-year-old teammate. Walker will turn 34 in August, with Smith then celebrating his 23rd birthday just 10 days later.

Antwaun Woods
News
Woods (undisclosed) cleared waivers and has reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.

Woods was waived with an injury designation Thursday, but it isn't clear what he's dealing with. He's stuck on IR all season unless he and the Titans reach an injury settlement.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Corey Davis
News
The Titans' offseason moves hint at confidence that Davis can develop into a No. 1 receiver, ESPN.com's Cameron Wolfe reports.

The Titans didn't draft any wideouts and merely signed Michael Campanaro (31 catches in 24 NFL games) as a replacement for Eric Decker. The front office apparently has confidence in Davis and Rishard Matthews atop the depth chart, with Campanaro, 2017 third-round pick Taywan Taylor and 2016 fifth-round pick Tajae Sharpe likely slated for the Nos. 3-5 spots in some order. Selected fifth overall in last year's draft, Davis was nursing an ankle injury at the time he was drafted, then suffered a nagging hamstring injury during training camp. He ended up with only 34 catches for 375 yards (and no touchdowns) on 65 targets in 11 regular-season games, but did at least finish the year with five catches for 63 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a blowout playoff loss to the Patriots. The Titans are banking on big improvement in Year 2, with the talented wideout likely getting a boost from an offense that's expected to be more aggressive under new coordinator Matt LaFleur, formerly of the Rams. A lack of overall volume was part of the problem for Davis, Matthews and Marcus Mariota last season, with Tennessee ranking 29th in snaps per game (61.1) and 28th in pass attempts (31.0).

Demontre Hurst
News
Hurst re-signed with the Titans on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Although Hurst's tenure with Tennessee has been mostly filled with promotions and demotions, there's something to be said about the Titans' affinity toward him given their reluctance to fully let go. It's unlikely he'll have any major impact next season, if he's on the roster at all, but he could challenge his peers for a spot as a reserve option in the secondary.

Nick DeLuca
No Updates
Phillip Supernaw
News
Supernaw (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Though Supernaw is available Sunday, the Titans are dressing four tight ends for the contest, an indication the 27-year-old isn't fully healthy. With just four receptions on the season, Supernaw doesn't have much of a role in the passing game even in times of better health.

Brynden Trawick
News
Trawick is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bengals due to a neck injury.

Trawick mainly provides provides special teams help, so if he is forced to miss the game it is unlikely to affect the Titans' defensive production.

Darius Jennings
News
Jennings signed a reserve/future contract with the Titans on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Jennings hasn't suited up for an NFL game since the 2015 season, when he played four games and snagged 14 receptions for 117 yards while also working as a kick returner. It's likely that Jennings' best opportunity to make the 53-man roster in 2018 will once again be through special teams.

Eric Weems
News
Weems was released by the Titans on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A 32-year-old special teams player with 39 receptions in 151 regular-season games, Weems may struggle to find work at this stage of his career. He never figured to stay in Tennessee once former head coach Mike Mularkey was fired.

Robert Spillane

Harold Landry

Taylor Lewan
News
Lewan (back) returned to Thursday's practice as a full participant, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

An MRI exam Monday revealed the back injury Lewan suffered in last week's loss to the Cardinals was not considered serious. However, Thursday marked his return to the practice field. Look for him to take on his usual role in Week 15, barring any setbacks.

Jeremy Boykins
News
Boykins (undisclosed) was waived Tuesday after reaching an injury settlement with the Titans, per the official NFL media site transaction log.

Without this settlement, Boykins would have had to wait until after the 2017 season to sign with another team. He's now officially free to sign with another team, and the undrafted rookie showed potential as a practice squad member when he led the Titans with five tackles against the Panthers in his second preseason game.

Tyler Marz
News
Marz was waived by the Chargers on Tuesday, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

Marz was signed of the Titans' practice squad in late September but was an inactive in all six games for the Chargers. He was waived in order to make room for Jeff Cumberland and Denzel Perryman (ankle) on the active roster.

Eric Decker
News
Decker is scheduled to visit the Ravens on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Decker previously checked in with Oakland earlier in the offseason, but left without a contract and may no longer be a target for the team. The Ravens will now kick the tires on the 31-year-old and determine whether he can provide an upgrade over either Chris Moore or Breshad Perriman as the club's No. 3 wideout. Though Decker has a more impressive track record than either of those receivers, his upside may be lower at this point given his age and dramatic downturn in performance last season in Tennessee, where he averaged a career-low 6.7 yards per target. While the Titans' passing game had some universal problems last season, Decker wouldn't benefit from an upgrade in Baltimore after Joe Flacco ranked 25th in passer rating (80.4) and last in yards per attempt (5.7) among 32 qualified quarterbacks in 2017.

Brian Schwenke
News
Schwenke signed with the Titans on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Schwenke was released by the Colts during roster cuts but will remain in the AFC South as he joins the Titans to start the regular season. The 26-year-old offers the Titans a versatile backup who can play several different positions on the line. Last season he played in all 16 games, including three starts at left guard.

Nate Palmer
News
Palmer (ankle) practiced Wednesday without limitations, Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News reports.

Barring any setbacks, Palmer is in line to play Sunday against the Bengals. Regardless, he hasn't played significant defensive snaps since 2015, so the fifth-year pro should remain off fantasy rosters.

Kevin Pamphile
News
Pamphile will sign a one-year deal with the Titans, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Pamphile was a versatile lineman for the Buccaneers the past four seasons, logging 33 starts at guard and tackle, with capabilities of playing all five positions. He will have an opportunity to compete for a starting position or at least a temporary starter if Jack Conklin (knee) is not ready for the beginning of the regular season.

Aaron Stinnie
No Updates
Brian Orakpo
News
Orakpo contributed 1.5 sacks and two tackles (one solo) during Saturday's 22-21 win over Kansas City in the wild-card round.

Orakpo picked a good time to tie his season high in sacks. The 31-year-old pass rusher still has plenty of gas left in the tank, as his 7.0 sacks in the regular season represented his third consecutive campaign with at least that many since joining the Titans.

Julius Warmsley
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.

Tajae Sharpe
News
Titans general manager Jon Robinson mentioned Sharpe when discussing the team's options at wideout for the upcoming season Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Robinson also mentioned Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor as key members of the 2018 receiving corps, noting that he doesn't feel the need to make any marquee additions at wideout. With Mathews and Davis seemingly locked in as starters, Sharpe likely is just hoping for a chance to push Taylor for the No. 3 role. The 2016 fifth-round pick earned a starting job entering Week 1 of his rookie campaign, but he finished the year with only 522 yards on 83 targets (6.3 yards per target), and then missed all of 2017 after having foot surgery in June. Sharpe was cleared for workouts in February and should enjoy a normal offseason program. The Titans probably won't prioritize wide receivers in the draft, but it won't come as any surprise if they use a middle-round pick on the position.

Rishard Matthews
News
Titans general manager Jon Robinson said Wednesday that he doesn't anticipate adding any marquee wide receivers to the roster, as he's happy with the current group led by Matthews, Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor and Tajae Sharpe, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Matthews and Davis appear locked in as starters, while Taylor and Sharpe could compete for the No. 3 role that Eric Decker occupied last season. Matthews missed two games last year and failed to repeat his breakout 2016 campaign, but he at least remained efficient with his opportunities by catching 53 of 87 targets (60.9 percent) for 795 yards (9.2 per target) and four touchdowns in 14 games. The Titans presumably envision a future with Davis serving as the top option and Matthews in more of a supporting role. It remains to be seen if that actually happens, however, as Davis averaged only 5.8 yards on 65 targets as a rookie and didn't find the end zone until the second round of the playoffs.

Xavier Su'a-Filo
News
Su'a-Filo signed a contract with the Titans on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Su'a-Filo has started 31 games for the Texans over the past two seasons. The 2014 second-round selection spent the past four seasons in Houston and is the second offensive lineman to sign with the Titans in the past week, the other being Kevin Pamphile.

Cameron Batson
No Updates
Tye Smith
News
Smith (hand) was a full participant at Titans practice Thursday.

Smith has been dealing with a broken hand since early September but seems to be on track to play against the Seahawks on Sunday. The 24-year-old will likely return to his role of a reserve cornerback and special teams contributor if he is able to play.

Ben Jones
No Updates
Josh Carraway
News
The Titans promoted Carraway to their 53-man roster Saturday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Carraway last played in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Texans before being waived and settling back on the team's practice squad. He has been called back up in order to help provide depth at outside linebacker.

Jayon Brown
News
Brown could enter the starting lineup as a replacement for Avery Williamson, who signed with the Jets at the beginning of the league year, ESPN.com's Cameron Wolfe reports.

A 2017 fifth-round pick, Brown replaced Williamson on passing downs last season, piling up 52 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and four pass breakups while playing 487 snaps on defense and 212 on special teams. He figures to retain an important role on the roster, but his small frame (5-foot-11, 226 pounds) could encourage the Titans to look to the draft for a starting inside linebacker alongside 2017 tackle leader Wesley Woodyard. Brown does offer some IDP potential, as he'd presumably be ticketed for an every-down role if he were to win the starting job. Should Tennessee fail to pick up a replacement for Williamson beyond Brown, expect the team to take a step back in terms of run defense while improving in coverage on early downs.

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.

Jordan Veasy
No Updates
Derrick Henry
News
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel and general manager Jon Robinson confirmed Wednesday that Henry and Dion Lewis will split playing time, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. "In my mind, we've got a big running back. We've got a big first- and second-down back," Vrabel said of Henry. "Dion provides a different body type, a different playing style. So how the two will complement each other, I'm not really sure. But I know that one's got a certain skill set and another body type and one is a little smaller, probably a little quicker, and has a different running style."

There was some thought Henry would handle a bell-cow role after DeMarco Murray was released in early March, but the Titans then acted quickly to sign Lewis, who profiles as an ideal complement for the 240-pound Heisman Trophy winner. The former Patriot is a skilled pass catcher and elusive open-field runner, whereas Henry relies on strength, vision and straight-line speed to successfully work between the tackles. Lewis should dominate passing downs and mix in on early downs, with Henry getting a larger share of the carries and the vast majority of short-yardage/goal-line work. It also won't be a huge surprise if Henry gets a shot at a three-down role at some point during the upcoming season, considering Lewis played nine or fewer games each year from 2012 to 2016. The idea of a post-Murray breakout is still alive and well for Henry.

Luke Stocker
News
The Titans exercised their team option on Stocker's contract for 2018 on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

A 2011 fourth-round pick, Stocker is a blocking specialist who caught 52 passes in 80 games over parts of seven seasons for the Buccaneers before they released him in November. The Titans quickly jumped on the opportunity to add a proven blocker behind Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith, inking Stocker to a two-year contract in December that included the 2018 option. The 29-year-old had one reception in three games with Tennessee and shouldn't be expected to take on a greater role in the passing game during the upcoming campaign.

Bennie Logan
News
Logan has agreed to a deal with the Titans, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports

Logan played 15 games for the Chiefs last season, starting 12 times and recording 52 tackles. The 28-year-old will bolster the interior of a Tennessee defensive line that's led by Jurrell Casey, who recorded at least five sacks each of the past five seasons. The Titans ranked fourth in the NFL with 88.8 rushing yards allowed per game last year, and Logan should only help that cause moving forward.

John Theus
News
Theus (illness) was claimed off waivers by the Titans on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Theus appeared in four games (one start) for the 49ers in 2016, but he has mainly served as depth along the offensive line during his first two professional seasons. He will presumably fill a similar void for the Titans.

Injury
Illness - Questionable for the start of training camp
Blaine Gabbert
News
Gabbert reached an agreement to sign with the Titans on Tuesday, ESPN.com reports.

The Titans were searching for an upgrade for their No. 2 quarterback spot after releasing Matt Cassel earlier in March. While not exactly reliable, Gabbert is at least closer to Marcus Mariota in terms of playing style, having run for 440 yards on 94 carries (4.7 average) in 19 appearances for the 49ers and Cardinals the past three seasons. The 2011 first-round pick went 2-3 in five starts for Arizona last year, completing 95 of 171 passes (55.6 percent) for 1,086 yards (6.4 per attempt), with six touchdowns, six interceptions, 23 sacks and seven fumbles (two lost). Gabbert may have to fend off Alex Tanney or another veteran in a competition for Tennessee's backup job.

Delanie Walker
News
Walker led his team with six catches for 74 yards on eight targets in Saturday's 22-21 win over the Chiefs in the wild-card round.

Walker was Marcus Mariota's go-to receiver in key situations when the quarterback wasn't getting things done with his feet. The veteran tight end likely doesn't have many playoff runs left in him at age 33, but he remains a key cog in an offense that often does just enough to win. Tennessee will have to upset ether the Patriots or the Steelers on the road next week in order to advance.

Josh Kline
News
Kline agreed to terms Wednesday with the Titans on a four-year, $26 million contract, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

The deal guarantees the guard $12 million after he impressed in a starting role with the Titans over the past two seasons. With The 28-year-old figures to have found a comfortable living in Nashville in the short-term. Per Pro Football Focus, Kline graded out as the No. 22 overall guard during the 2017 season, with the 28-year-old turning in his best work in pass protection.

LeShaun Sims
News
Sims (hamstring) worked out with teammates Logan Ryan and Kevin Byard earlier this offseason, Kayla Anderson of WKRN Nashville reports.

Ryan and Byard, the two leaders of the Titans secondary, reportedly put together a workout program led by former Middle Tennessee State strength coach Jason Spray. While these types of get-togethers are extremely common for players nowadays, it's significant that Sims participated given that he ended the 2017 season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. With no indication that Sims has suffered any sort of setback in his recovery, it's safe to say the third-year cornerback is at full health entering the start of the Titans' voluntary team workouts, which began Monday.

Karl Klug
News
Klug (Achilles) figures to be back on the field in six weeks, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website reports. "I am sick of missing practices," the defensive end said. "But they have me on a good schedule, doing rehab, and I'm working to get back as fast as I can."

Klug tore his Achilles back in the December and has been on the long road to recovery ever since. Just because he's not on the field doesn't mean Klug isn't a constant presence, however, with head coach Mike Mularkey noting that 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 projects to be able to return shortly thereafter.

Malcolm Butler
News
Butler is slated to sign with the Titans, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After signing with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent, Butler eventually carved out a key role in the Patriots' secondary, notably clinching the team's win over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX with a last-minute pick. He'll slide into a starting role with Tennessee, where he'll play for former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel, who now coaches the Titans.

Erik Walden
News
Walden (hamstring) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Texans.

Walden gradually escalated his level of practice in each subsequent day this week, culminating in a full showing Friday. Thus, he's all systems go at present time.

Johnathan Cyprien
News
Cyprien (back) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Despite having not practiced at any point this week, Cyprien evidently convinced the Titans in pregame warmups that his back injury wasn't too much of a hindrance. He'll likely be in store for a full load of snaps as the Titans aim to strengthen their playoff hopes. Cyprien is coming off a Week 14 performance against the Cardinals in which he turned in 10 tackles and his first sack of the season.

Ryan Succop
News
Succop signed a five-year, $20 million extension with the Titans on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

It was a career year for Succop in 2017, as the kicker made 35 of 42 field-goal attempts. He also set an NFL record by connecting on 56 straight field goals from inside the 50-yard line, which dates back to 2014. His 35 made field goals and 136 points were career highs, and he was also named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for September.

Corey Levin

Marcus Mariota
News
The Titans are planning to exercise their fifth-year option on Mariota's rookie contract, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

The predictable and logical move will keep the 2015 No. 2 overall pick under team control through the 2019 campaign. Per the report, the 24-year-old signal caller will be in line for a base salary of $20.9 million in 2019. Mariota is coming off a 2017 season in which he threw for 3,232 yards with 13 touchdowns and 15 picks in 15 games. It was a step back from his 2016 effort, which included a 26:9 TD:INT, but there's hope that Mariota's prospects will be bolstered by the Titans' hiring of offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur, who tends to rely heavily on play-action passing. Moreover, it's reasonable to expect improved production from promising wideout Corey Davis, who caught 34 passes for 375 yards in 11 games last season after being selected with the fifth overall pick last April.

Will Compton
News
Compton (foot) has signed a one-year contract with the Titans, Justin Beasley of WSMV News 4 reports.

Compton mostly played on special teams for the Redskins during the first half of the 2017 campaign but was forced into a starting role after Mason Foster (shoulder) went down in Week 7. However, Compton only lasted a few games before getting injured himself, and he ultimately finished the season on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury. The linebacker didn't require surgery and said he felt close to fully recovered in mid-January, but this kind of injury can require a delicate recovery process and he may still be a ways off from receiving full medical clearance. In any case, Compton should be healthy by the time training camp rolls around in July. Considering the Titans let Avery Williamson walk in free agency, Jayon Brown seems to be his only competition for the starting job next to Wesley Woodyard.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Derrick Morgan
News
Morgan contributed just one solo tackle in Saturday's 35-14, divisional-round loss to New England.

Morgan finished the regular season with 7.5 sacks and picked up another one in a wild-card round win over the Chiefs, but the stout Patriots offensive line rendered the 29-year-old pass rusher useless. With 16.5 regular season sacks over the past two campaigns, Morgan projects to be an impact defender for the Titans in the final year of his contract next season.

Nick Williams
News
Williams came to terms on a contract with the Titans on Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Williams is entering his sixth professional season and spent the past three campaigns in the Atlanta organization, hauling in 25 receptions for 248 yards and two scores over that stretch. Most of that production came in 2015, as a concussion and his low standing on the depth chart have limited him to three regular-season appearances over the past two years. He'll vie for a depth role in Tennessee but faces a similarly blocked path to playing time.

Jack Conklin
News
Conklin (knee) is expected to start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Conklin underwent surgery two weeks ago to repair a torn ACL, leaving a long road to recovery ahead of him this offseason. The right tackle may not be ready for the first few weeks of the regular season, especially when considering the Titans' transition to a zone-blocking scheme under the new coaching staff.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kalan Reed
News
Reed (concussion) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Barring any setbacks, Reed will be ready for Saturday's wild-card game against the Chiefs. The second-year pro rarely plays on defense, but with CB Brice McCain battling a hamstring injury, Reed could see an increase in defensive opportunities.

Quinton Spain
News
Spain signed his restricted free-agent tender Tuesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Spain will remain in Tennessee after starting 33 games at left guard for the Titans over the past three seasons. The Titans also added Xavier Su'a-Filo and Kevin Pamphile this offseason, which will likely lead to a training camp battle for the starting left guard position come August.

Zach Pascal
News
Pascal signed a reserve/future contract with the Titans on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Pascal served a brief stint with the Titans earlier in the 2017 season, but he was waived before suiting up for a game. The 23-year-old wideout will battle for a depth receiver role.

Dennis Kelly

Logan Ryan
News
Ryan (ankle) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Patriots.

Ryan, who originally injured his ankle in Week 15, has been able to play in each of the last two games. Coupled with the fact he was a full participant in Thursday's practice, there shouldn't be any concern over his impending availability.

Michael Campanaro
News
Campanaro's one-year contract with the Titans is for $880,000, with $45,000 coming in the form of a signing bonus, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

It's a contract that suggests the 2014 seventh-round pick will need to compete for a roster spot, though he should have the inside track unless Tennessee uses an early draft pick on a wideout. Campanaro was limited by an array of injuries during his four seasons in Baltimore, but he finally managed to play more than four games in 2017, catching 19 of 27 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown while adding 27 punt returns for 291 yards and another score in 13 appearances. He might get a chance to push Taywan Taylor for slot work on offense, but special teams represents the more likely path to a meaningful role. It's surprising the Ravens weren't willing to top this contract, considering they don't have much in the way of wideout depth or potential return specialists.

David King
News
King signed a one-year extension with the Titans on Wednesday, Jason Wolf of the Tennessean reports.

King, who the Titans traded for last September in exchange for a conditional draft pick, recorded three tackles and one sack over seven games in 2017 while operating as a rotational defensive lineman. He'll likely remain in a low-volume role in 2018 and, as such, isn't worth any consideration in IDP formats.

DeMarco Murray
News
Murray is scheduled to visit the Dolphins on Sunday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Murray has also visited the Lions and Seahawks since being released by the Titans last week. Kenyon Drake stepped in as the Dolphins' starter after the team traded away Jay Ajayi and found some success down the stretch, but a more proven running back could benefit the team. The 30-year-old saw a reduced workload in 2017 with Derrick Henry taking over the Titans backfield, totaling 659 rushing yards and six touchdowns on 184 carries.

Brett Kern

Beau Brinkley
News
Brinkley (groin) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is expected to be available for Sunday's game against Oakland.

Brinkley will return to being a reserve lineman in Tennessee, and he should be grateful that this injury didn't lead to his departure from the program.

Kendrick Lewis
News
Lewis has agreed to terms to join the Titans, Herbie Teope of NFL.com reports.

The Titans are adding a veteran presence to their defense, with Lewis having been in the league since 2010. In 81 career starts, he's logged 323 tackled and nine interceptions.

Injury
Thigh - Questionable for the start of training camp
Anthony Firkser
News
Firkser signed with the Titans on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Firkser was most recently waived by the Chiefs two weeks ago. The Titans will be the third NFL team the tight end has signed with in two years, but he looks to be a long shot to make the final roster.

Taywan Taylor
News
Titans general manager Jon Robinson said Wednesday that he doesn't anticipate adding any marquee wide receivers, as he's happy with the current group consisting of Taylor, Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis and Tajae Sharpe, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Selected 72nd overall in last year's draft, Taylor was fourth or fifth on the wideout depth chart for most of his rookie season, catching 16 of 27 targets for 231 yards (8.6 per target) and one touchdown. He'll likely get a shot to replace Eric Decker in the No. 3 role, though Sharpe and another veteran or draft pick also might be in the mix during training camp. While not especially impressive in terms of size (5-foot-11) or straight-line speed (4.5 40-yard dash), Taylor could fit nicely in the slot between Davis and Matthews, the Titans' presumptive starters out wide.
