According to the player rep for free agent Justin Gage, the receiver will not be re-signing with the Titans.
The Nashville Tennessean is surprised, just as they were when the Titans also moved on from Kerry Collins. Both decisions seem small on the surface, but avoiding familiar mediocrities is a major step in the right direction for the Titans. They should be aiming higher than Gage, even if an unproven young talent is signed instead. Tue, Sep 27, 2011 05:56:00 PM

Titans released WR Justin Gage.

Increasingly less explosive in recent seasons, Gage tallied just one catch this preseason after making only four for 20 yards in 11 games in 2010. After eight years in the league, he's near the end of the line.

Justin Gate has just one target in three preseason games.

The Titans insist Gate is having a fine training camp, but his playing time has decreased three straight weeks. Gage is due $3.5 million as the fourth receiver while Damian Williams continues to move up the depth chart,. We can't imagine a scenario where the Titans keep Gage around at that price.

ESPN AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky expects the Titans to part ways with free agent WR Justin Gage.

Jeff Fisher and Mike Heimerdinger had an odd fascination with Gage, who has been mediocrity personified for four years in Nashville. Last year's third-rounder Damian Williams is expected to battle Nate Washington for the starting job opposite Kenny Britt. Barring a free agent addition, Lavelle Hawkins will slot in as the No. 4 receiver.

Titans declared Justin Gage inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Gage was not on the injury report this week, so it looks like he's just sitting the season finale out so the Titans can get a look at Damien Williams. His season ends with just 20 catches for 266 yards and one touchdown in 11 games. This passing game can't support more than one wideout, and that wideout is clearly Kenny Britt going forward. Other Titans inactives today: Third QB Rusty Smith, TE Bo Scaife, T Troy Kropog, DT Jovan Haye, LB David Thornton, S Robert Johnson and S Vincent Fuller.

Justin Gage had just one catch for 25 yards in the team's Week 13 loss.

Gage still hasn't found the end zone this season, and can safely be left on the waiver wire in all formats.

The Titans used Justin Gage as their primary slot receiver in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, in place of rookie Damian Williams.

Gage was targeted a whopping nine times, but caught just three for 18 yards. "Gage has been a starter here for a number of years," coach Jeff Fisher said. "Damian is up and coming. He’s learning and making plays. But we felt like Gage could play the slot and he does a good job with it. He gets open."

Justin Gage caught three passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to Miami.

Gage saw nine targets on the afternoon, though a majority of those looks were overthrows. He lacks big play ability, and won't see enough snaps to be a factor in fantasy leagues.

Justin Gage (hamstring) is expected to return after the Titans' bye week.

Gage has been practicing fully for a couple weeks but has been inactive on gamedays. The Titans need him now that Kenny Britt will be sidelined for several games. He'll return as the starter opposite Nate Washington.

Justin Gage (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Gage likely wasn't going to start over Kenny Britt anyway, but it's interesting that he's practicing fully but not dressing on Sundays. Rookie Damien Williams may have passed Gage on the depth chart. Other Titans inactives: Third QB Rusty Smith, T Troy Kropog, G Ryan Durand, DT Tony Brown, LB Jamie Winborn, CB Ryan Mouton and S Robert Johnson.

Coach Jeff Fisher isn't guaranteeing that Justin Gage (questionable, hamstring) will regain his starting job if he plays this week.

"We'll have five (receivers) up and they're all going to play," said Fisher. It's a departure from precedent for Fisher, who has previously re-installed Gage as a starter upon returning from injuries. Fisher may be loyal, but he's not short-sighted enough to take Kenny Britt out of the lineup.

Justin Gage (hamstring) is practicing fully for a second straight week.

Gage did the same last week only to be held out of the game. He should finally be ready to suit up this week, but there's no way the Titans can hand him his starting job back. They're now second in the NFL in scoring thanks to Kenny Britt's emergence as the lone threat to take safeties out of the box.

Justin Gage (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 7 despite practicing fully again on Friday.

With Kenny Britt in danger of being deactivated for allegedly punching a man in the face Friday, Gage could reenter the starting lineup against the Eagles on Sunday. Just don't be surprised if rookie Damian Williams leads the Titans in receiving. He was Kerry Collins' favorite target in Week 6.
Fri, Oct 22, 2010 06:06:00 PM

Justin Gage (hamstring) practiced in full again on Thursday.

Gage is on track to return against the Eagles this week, but coach Jeff Fisher indicated that he won't be rushed back into his starting role until he's proven to be 100 percent. Kenny Britt should be safe for WR3 value for at least one more week.
