ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky said CB Tommie Campbell is playing so poorly he "doesn't look like an NFL player" right now.
A seventh-round pick in 2011, Campbell has never started a game and only has 91 defensive snaps to his name. He is currently penciled in as the No. 4 corner in Tennessee, but his spot on the 53-man roster is anything but secure. Aug 2 - 12:16 PM

Titans CB Tommie Campbell's shoulder is 100 percent healthy.

Campbell appeared in eight games as a special teamer before landing on injured reserve last season. He played only 23 snaps on defense. The 2011 seventh-rounder isn't assured a spot on the 53-man roster.

Titans placed CB Tommie Campbell (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The Titans tried molding Campbell into a starter to take Alterraun Verner's job all offseason. When push came to shove, Campbell couldn't cut it and Verner has exploded to become one of the NFL's top cornerbacks in 2013, his contract year. At one point a core special teamer but never an asset on defense, Campbell shouldn't be assured of a roster spot in 2014.

Titans DC Jerry Gray suggested that CB Tommie Campbell potentially could start in Week 2 against the Texans.

Campbell lost the starting right cornerback job to Alterraun Verner, but will see playing time in a rotation opposite Jason McCourty. Because he has more size than Verner, the Titans are considering matching him up with Andre Johnson next week. "He can get on big wide receivers, and we know who we’ve got coming up," Gray said. "That may be best for us."

Titans CB Tommie Campbell has lost the starting right cornerback competition to Alterraun Verner.

The Titans desperately wanted Campbell to win this position, both this offseason and last offseason, but he couldn't do it. As ESPN AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky notes, "They’ve either overestimated Campbell, failed to develop him or both." Campbell will now be a special teams player only. LCB Jason McCourty, RCB Verner, and Coty Sensabaugh are the Titans' top three corners.

Titans CB Tommie Campbell ran with the starters at minicamp.

Alterraun Verner has mostly worked at free safety in the offseason, leaving Campbell as the favorite to start opposite Jason McCourty. A 2011 seventh-round pick, Campbell played just 68 snaps on defense last year -- with 52 coming in Week 17. The Titans like him because he's an imposing 6'3/205 press corner.

Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray singled out third-year CB Tommie Campbell as a standout OTA performer.

Titans coaches talked up Campbell last offseason, too, but he was nowhere to be found when the games started. "Tommie Campbell has stood out, he’s done a really good job of covering," said Gray. Campbell is competing to start opposite Jason McCourty, with Alterraun Verner apparently demoted to nickel back.

Titans CB Tommie Campbell says "off the field things" contributed to his lack of playing time in 2012.

Campbell admitted being late to a meeting and failing to gain the coaching staff's trust on the field as well. "If I have deep-third coverage in practice. then I need to be in the deep third," he said. "If I'm playing Cover 2, I need to get the jam and then sink — simple things like that before they could throw a guy like me out there." The Titans would be wise to get Campbell on the field more in 2013, kicking Alterraun Verner into a more natural slot role.

Titans second-year CB Tommie Campbell played 52-of-76 defensive snaps in the Week 17 finale versus Jacksonville.

Campbell, a seventh-round pick out of California (PA) in 2011, had played just 16 defensive snaps all season before Sunday. He was mainly a special teams player, but the coaching staff played him in the base defense over Alterraun Verner this week. Verner has one year left on his contract, but nickel corner Ryan Mouton is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Campbell could see an increased role in 2013.

Titans CB Tommie Campbell (ankle) is expected to miss 1-2 weeks.

Campbell was spotted in a walking boot Monday after spraining his ankle in last Thursday's upset of the Steelers. The reserve corner is one of the Titans' top special teamers.

Titans reserve CB Tommie Campbell left Thursday night's game against the Steelers with an ankle injury and is doubtful to return.

Campbell is a key special teamer and was injured in the second quarter. He's a second-year player out of California (PA). Campbell was spotted on crutches after the game.

Titans CB Tommie Campbell was not with Kenny Britt when the receiver got popped for DUI last month.

Nashville's 104.5 FM erroneously reported Campbell as a passenger when Britt tried to enter a gate at Fort Campbell. The 2011 seventh-round pick was in Pennsylvania at the time. Campbell remains in the mix for nickel corner duties in addition to his role as a core special teamer.

After OTA and minicamp season, the Nashville Tennessean considers Tommie Campbell the favorite for Titans nickel back duties in 2012.

Campbell is big (6'3/205) and really fast, and defensive coordinator Jerry Gray praised his instincts as well. Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner are locked in as the Titans' starting cornerbacks, but Verner will cover the slot in nickel packages. It sounds like Campbell will play RCB on all passing downs.

Last year's seventh-rounder, CB Tommie Campbell, is "in the mix for significant playing time" this season.

An intriguing size/speed package at 6'3/206 with legit 4.3 wheels, Campbell has impressed the coaching staff with his commitment level this offseason. With Alterraun Verner shifting to the slot in nickel packages, Campbell will vie with Chris Hawkins and Coty Sensabaugh for snaps opposite Jason McCourty.

Defensive coordinator Jerry Gray describes second-year man Tommie Campbell as the Titans' second best cornerback from a technical standpoint.

(Starter Jason McCourty is No. 1). It's especially notable because Campbell is 6-foot-3, 206, and big corners often struggle with technique. Gray indicated that Campbell will push Alterraun Verner for the Titans' right cornerback job.
