David Cobb - RBPosted 5/19/15 1:29am ET
Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb has been asked by the team to drop some weight but was nor given a specific number. Cobb said he weighs 232 pounds but wants to be around 225 pounds.
Huddle Up: Not sure if Cobb looks slow at minicamp or if the team just prefers he play at a lighter weight, but most of the redraft analysis referenced him getting quicker so it makes sense the Titans equate that with less weight. Cobb weighed 229 at the Combine, so it shouldn't be difficult for him to get down to his personal goal. He's in line to see plenty of carries in Tennessee, especially if he can keep his new employers happy by following their directive.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 5/17/15 3:36pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota is scheduled to begin contract talks with the team Monday, May 18, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Mariota already has gotten his feet wet in workouts so don't look for this to be a lingering issue with the slotted rookie pay structure already in place.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 5/15/15 2:08pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will be tested by his defense in training camp as assistant head coach Dick LeBeau is under direction to throw everything at the rookie that he can. All indications are that Mariota will have to fail miserably to lose the starting job in the preseason.
Huddle Up: The Titans and Mariota couldn't have asked for a better sounding board as LeBeau is infamous for confusing and confounding rookie QBs, and it sounds like he'll get a tougher test in camp than he'll see from the vanilla preseason defenses he's likely to face.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 5/7/15 1:43pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger, who is now the backup quarterback to QB Marcus Mariota, did not demand a trade and is adamant about going to training camp with a chance to compete against Mariota for the starting job, according to OT Taylor Lewan. Mettenberger took part in the team's voluntary workout program last Friday and Monday, May 4. Mettenberger was 0-6 in his starts last year as a rookie and threw for 1,412 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Lewan also said Mettenberger lost around 15 pounds this offseason and looks leaner and stronger.
Huddle Up: The second-year QB, a sixth-round pick last season who showed flashes despite his 0-6 record as a starter, is being written off with the Titans using the first-round pick on Mariota and with good reason as the former Oregon standout is going to be given almost every benefit of the doubt at most every turn in the competition for the No. 1 gig. It's certainly not a fair fight, but that's how it goes when it comes to No. 2 overall picks in the draft -- especially at QB.
Justin Hunter - WRPosted 5/7/15 10:43pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter is expected to compete with WR Dorial Green-Beckham for one of the starting receiver jobs during training camp. Hunter said he has been working on adding some weight this offseason. Hunter finished this past season at 196 pounds but is currently 206 pounds and wants to be at 210 pounds by the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: The anticipated breakout never came for Hunter last season as he logged 28 catches for 498 yards and three TDs in 12 games before rupturing his spleen, and he'll definitely have to step up his game with the team adding not only Green-Beckham in the second round but signing free agents Harry Douglas and Hakeem Nicks and drafting Tre McBride in the seventh round.
Dorial Green-Beckham - WRPosted 5/1/15 9:08pm ET
Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham was selected 40th overall by the Tennessee Titans in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.
Huddle Up: The Titans, who originally owned the opening (33rd) pick) in the second round, were able to trade back and still snare the talented but troubled Green-Beckham, giving first-round pick Marcus Mariota a serious outside weapon. Throw in Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and TE Delanie Walker and the Titans suddenly have a better-than-decent corps of pass-catchers.
Marcus Mariota - QBPosted 4/30/15 9:01pm ET
Oregon QB Marcus Mariota was selected second overall by the Tennessee Titans in the 2015 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 30. He is not expected to be traded.
Huddle Up: The Titans reportedly received several inquiries about teams moving up to the No. 2 spot, but Ken Whisenhunt and Co. appear to be poised to move forward with the former Oregon standout. And while Whisenhunt will be a strong mentor, there will be a definite learning curve with the former spread QB transitioning to the pro game. The agent for second-year Titans QB Zach Mettenberger, meanwhile, is reportedly already requesting a trade.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 4/29/15 9:02am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright had his fifth-year option officially picked up Tuesday, April 28.
Huddle Up: No surprise here, as Wright is Tennessee's most consistent receiver. And whether they roll with Zach Mettenberger or draft Marcus Mariota, the Titans need reliable pass-catchers.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 4/23/15 11:20pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright's fifth-year option is expected to be picked up by the team this offseason.
Huddle Up: Although his 2014 reception and receiving-yards totals (57-715) fell off markedly (from his 94-1,079-2 stat line a year earlier, he still led all Tennessee WRs in receptions and yards while hauling in a career-best six scoring passes last season. That said, he has 2015 fantasy sleeper potential -- especially if the Titans can upgrade their QB situation.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 4/20/15 10:23pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was applauded by TE Delanie Walker for recently organizing practice sessions. Walker said he's excited about Mettenberger showing leadership and initiative, adding that Mettenberger could be the franchise quarterback the Titans need.
Huddle Up: We'll find out April 30 if the Titans agree with Walker's assessment, but in the meantime Mettenberger is doing all the right things if he is to take the helm for the Titans in 2015.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 4/17/15 7:20pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger has organized workouts with some of his teammates in Nashville this offseason.
Huddle Up: Mettenberger is taking charge in his second year as he should as the Titans' projected starter, and be certain that there won't be a more interested onlooker as to what the franchise does with the second overall pick on April 30.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 4/12/15 11:03pm ET
According to a story in the Tennessean, Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger is viewed as the steal of the 2014 NFL Draft by head coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Ruston Webster, and they view him as a poor man's version of New England Patriots QB Tom Brady.
Huddle Up: Nothing like a little pre-draft chatter. Mettenberger, a 2014 sixth-round pick, was OK with an 83.4 rating and eight TDs and seven interceptions in his rookie season but had a 30.11 QBR and failed to guide the Titans to a win in any of six starts. In short, there aren't many outside of Whisenhunt and Webster who are making Mettenberger-Brady comparisons -- and that's if Whisenhunt and Webster are actually being semi-truthful.
Nate Washington - WRPosted 4/2/15 12:25pm ET
Free-agent WR Nate Washington (Titans) has signed a one-year deal with the Houston Texans worth $1 million, including $30,000 guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Washington joins Cecil Shorts, Damaris Johnson, DeVier Posey and Keshawn Martin in the hunt to be the Texans' No. 2 WR opposite DeAndre Hopkins, but it remains to be seen if the jumble will produce some tangible fantasy value.
Harry Douglas - WRPosted 3/10/15 2:12pm ET
Free-agent WR Harry Douglas (Falcons) agreed to a three-year deal with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, March 10.
Huddle Up: Douglas, who averaged 58 receptions, 673 yards and 1.7 TDs over his last three seasons as No. 3 WR/fill-in starer with the Falcons, will bring a needed veteran presence to the Titans' WR corps currently headed by recent high draft picks Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter. Still, keep your fantasy expectations to a minimum, though, with second-year Zach Mettenberger currently penciled in as the team's starting QB.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 2/15/15 9:11pm ET
Early indications are the Tennessee Titans are leaning toward giving QB Zach Mettenberger a chance to prove himself as the full-time starter rather than using the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft on Oregon QB Marcus Mariota or Florida State QB Jameis Winston. 'We like Zach, and I think Zach has the tools to play and start in the league,' general manager Ruston Webster said.
Huddle Up: Mettenberger, a 2014 sixth-round pick, averaged 232.5 passing yards and had eight TDs and six interceptions in six starts last last season while going 0-6 and looks as if he showed just enough promise to get another look-see as the starter.
Jake Locker - QBPosted 2/6/15 10:26pm ET
Tennessee Titans impending free-agent QB Jake Locker could draw interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, according to an NFL agent.
Huddle Up: Surprise: Could another former Pac-12 QB be headed to Philly to join Chip Kelly's crew? Health, though, remains the primary question with Locker, who's only played in 30 out of a possible 64 games in his four seasons in Tennessee.
Ray Horton - DCPosted 2/4/15 12:15am ET
Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Ray Horton will remain on the staff as the team's defensive coordinator, however newly-hired assistant head coach Dick LeBeau is expected to run the defense, according to a source familiar with the situation. An official announcement is expected later in the week.
Huddle Up: The Titans finished 29th in points allowed and 27th in yards surrendered in Horton's first year as DC, and will be able to draw on LeBeau's years of expertise going forward.
Dexter McCluster - RBPosted 12/30/14 2:13am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dexter McCluster may be more involved in the offense next year, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: More McCluster takes touches off the table for Bishop Sankey, who wasn't given much of an opportunity this season anyway. Guess we'll find out if this is coach-speak or just another strike against Sankey's future fantasy value when the Titans take a quarterback in the draft and begin OTAs.
Charlie Whitehurst - QBPosted 12/24/14 6:30pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Charlie Whitehurst will start in Week 17 against the Indianapolis Colts, head coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Whitehurst will make a third straight start but it's not going to matter much either way to TE Delanie Walker -- the only Titans the majority of fantasy owners should be using in Week 17.
Leon Washington - RBPosted 12/19/14 10:38am ET
Tennessee Titans RB Leon Washington caught a team-high seven passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in the team's 21-13 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Dec. 18. He also added four carries for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Because when you're steam-rolling towards the first overall pick in the draft, why would you want to give touches to your rookie running back to see if he can carry the load for you going forward when you have perfectly good journeymen like Washington and Shonn Greene you can employ?
Dexter McCluster - RBPosted 12/18/14 5:48pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Dexter McCluster (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: McCluster's Nashville debut netted 26 catches for 197 yards, 40 rushes for 131 more and one total TD. In short, a disappointment even for those in deeper leagues hoping to glean even flex-worthy fantasy value out of the WR.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/18/14 8:38pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) is active for Week 16 after being limited in practice all week.
Huddle Up: The Titans' leader in TD receptions will play after missing last week but will be hard to trust given his hand injury and the team's QB situation.
Delanie Walker - TEPosted 12/17/14 6:44pm ET
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and is questionable for Week 16 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Like most players, Walker is battling through the late-season aches and pains but should play and projects as a solid TE1 this week against the Jags.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/16/14 3:55pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) was limited in practice Tuesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Wright, who has missed the last two games, remains a major question mark with a cracked bone in his hand.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 12/16/14 7:35pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) missed practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: The rookie isn't returning on a short week and could be done for the season, leaving Charlie Whitehurst to make his fourth start of the year Thursday against the Jags.
Jake Locker - QBPosted 12/15/14 8:18pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) was placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, Dec. 15. Locker will undergo shoulder surgery Tuesday, Dec. 16, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: Another season, another injury for the star-crossed Locker, likely leaving the Titans' QB chores to Charlie Whitehurst for the rest of the season. Use the Titans' top pass-catchers -- TE Delanie Walker, WR Nate Washington and, possibly, Kendall Wright -- as you normally would over the final two games.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 12/8/14 3:59pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) is out for the year with an AC joint separation, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Titans will likely go back to Jake Locker at quarterback. He has no fantasy value.
Zach Mettenberger - QBPosted 12/7/14 8:01pm ET
Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) suffered a sprained right shoulder in the Week 14 game against the New York Giants, and it is more significant than the one he suffered in Week 13. All indications are that he is likely done for the season.
Huddle Up: The Titans will likely turn back to Jake Locker for the final three games of the season. Locker is not on the fantasy radar.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/5/14 12:10am ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) cracked a bone in his right hand when he slipped in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3. Wright didn't practice Thursday, but he has not been ruled out for the team's game against the New York Giants Sunday, Dec. 7.
Huddle Up: It might be worse than it sounds, but this a WR with a broken bone is his hand just isn't a good mix. With Justin Hunter going down last week, the fantasy stock of Nate Washington and Derek Hagan is rising fast.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 12/5/14 2:18pm ET
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand) will not need surgery to fix a cracked bone in his hand, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: Definitely good news for Wright owners, but it still remains to be seen if he'll be able to play with the injury. Stay tuned ...
