The Titans had an outstanding draft last week where they obtained several great players like offensive tackle JC Latham out of Alabama and defensive tackle T’Vondre Sweat out of Texas. General Manager Ran Carthon and Head Coach Brian Callahan have been hard at work in this offseason making moves that will help lead the team to success. That is crystal clear after the great picks that they chose in the 2024 NFL Draft. Their work did not conclude once the draft wrapped up. They went out and signed a few undrafted free agents. This decision was a solid one because…

As the 2024 NFL Draft approaches, the Tennessee Titans have a pretty good idea of the players they’re going to be deciding between for their seventh overall pick. The names that have been floating around for their pick are offensive lineman Joe Alt out of the University of Notre Dame and wide receiver Malik Nabers out of LSU. In mock drafts released by NFL analysts, most seem to think that it is pretty clear the Titans will select Alt considering their massive protection struggles that occurred in the 2023 season. In the hands of General Manager Ran Carthon and new…

The Tennessee Titans have been very active in free agency making good moves which include trading for cornerback L’Jarius Sneed and signing wide receiver Calvin Ridley. One thing that the Titans would probably like to do would be to continue to sign players who can really make an impact on the team’s future success. One ideal signing would be to go after safety Justin Simmons, who could bolster an already strong defensive secondary unit. After trading for former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed and signing former Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, the team has a strong secondary going into…

The University of Tennessee Volunteers football team has seen a resurgence in their program ever since Josh Heupel took the reins in January of 2021. Since being Tennessee’s head coach, Heupel’s remarkable revival has seen him produce a 27-12 overall record, eight victories over Top-25 teams, the program’s first New Year’s Six berth in the College Football Playoff era, and back-to-back top-20 poll finishes. The Tennessee Vols’ 2023 football team ended with an 8-4 overall record which led them to the Citrus Bowl where new quarterback Nico Iamaleava got his first start. He led the Vols to a 35-0 bowl…

The Tennessee Titans have been very active in the 2024 offseason making moves left and right. On Tuesday, March 26th, some of the staff for the Titans attended the pro day for LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers where they met and talked with him before this year’s NFL Draft. Nabers has been mentioned in several mock drafts as a prime candidate for the team who has a great need at the wide receiver position, even after signing free agent wide receiver Calvin Ridley. There is still a lot of speculation about who the Titans will choose with their seventh overall…

General Manager Ran Carthon and new Head Coach Brian Callahan have been making significant moves signing notable players like wide receiver Calvin Ridley, center Lloyd Cushenberry, and cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, just to name a few. However, probably the Titans’ biggest move was made on Friday, March 22, 2024, when news broke that they were trading with the Kansas City Chiefs for star cornerback, L’Jarius Sneed, via Adam Schefter on X. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/1771369568109273229 For the past few weeks, there have been reports of many different scenarios involving…

He averaged a 123.8 quarterback rating while in high school. There…

Tee Higgins has requested a trade away from the Cincinnati Bengals. It is very possible that Tee Higgins will be wearing new colors when the 2024 season begins. The only question now is where and at what cost? The team, outside of the Cincinnati Bengals, that would make the most sense for Higgins would be the Tennessee Titans. Why Higgins would fit so well as a Titan In regards to the Titans’ receiving corp in the 2023 season, it was underwhelming to say the least. It consisted of Deandre Hopkins, Treylon Burks, Kyle Phillips, Chris Moore, Colton Dowell and others.…

On March 13th, the Titans signed back an important piece to their team’s success, running back Julius Chestnut. He signed a one year deal to remain with the team.

What Chestnut Brings to the Titans Though Chestnut’s stats will not pop off a page like some other talented players in the league, he holds great importance to the Titans’ success.…
