Titans OLB Jonathan Massaquoi is recovering from shoulder surgery.

Massaquoi had a minor clean-up procedure in the offseason. He should miss the majority of OTAs, but is expected to be full-go for the start of training camp. Claimed off waivers in March, Massaquoi will compete for a reserve pass-rusher role behind Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan.

The Titans want rookie RB David Cobb to lose some weight after he reported to rookie camp at 232.

The coaches haven't told Cobb a specific number, but he wants to play around 225. He tipped the scales at 229 at the Combine. Shedding 8-10 pounds won't be a problem when training camp rolls around in the dead heat of summer. Cobb is currently being drafted in the 12th round of MFL best-ball leagues.

Sources tell PFT's Mike Florio the Titans will begin contract negotiations with Marcus Mariota on Monday.

Of the first seven picks in this year's draft, Mariota is the only one who hasn't signed a contract. It's unclear how Mariota and his agent will approach the issue of offset language. Without offset language, Mariota could get paid twice if the Titans released him and let him sign with another team before his four years are up. Jacksonville's deals with Dante Fowler and Blake Bortles did not include offset language, though most contracts do.

The Titans are impressed with rookie FB Jalston Fowler's ability to catch passes.

Seven of his 19 catches at Alabama went for touchdowns. "It was just a goal-line thing," said Fowler. "We ran a couple of plays on the goal line, with me just bluffing, going into the flat and scoring touchdowns." A sharp blocker with good size, Fowler paved the way for T.J. Yeldon's 979 rushing yards last season. The Titans are hoping Fowler will add speed to his already impressive skill set by losing 5-10 pounds this offseason.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Marcus Mariota will receive the "majority" of first-team quarterback reps this offseason.

Although some are pushing Mariota-versus-Zach Mettenberger as a training camp battle, it isn't. The Titans fully intend to start Mariota in Week 1, and only a complete face plant in preseason games might make it even a question.

Titans signed No. 108 overall pick FB Jalston Fowler to a four-year contract.

Fowler was probably over-drafted in the fourth round, but can do a little bit of everything. He averaged 6.59 yards per carry at Alabama, and displayed soft hands. He's not a road grader as a lead blocker, but should be an upgrade on Jackie Battle.

Titans signed No. 138 overall pick RB David Cobb to a four-year contract.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt has said the Titans view Cobb as a potential three-down back, but he has Shonn Greene-esque wheels at 4.73. He's an able pass protector who can snag the occasional reception, but speedy he is not. Despite that fact, Cobb's versatility and power between the tackles could easily earn him rookie-year work. The Titans clearly aren't happy with Bishop Sankey.

Harry Douglas is learning X, Y, Z and F in the Titans playbook.

In other words, Douglas is preparing to play all over the field -- not just in the slot. The Titans want to use both Douglas and Kendall Wright (who played 72.7 percent of his snaps in the slot last year) "inside and out." So although Justin Hunter's ceiling is high, we saw nothing to suggest he's going to reach it anytime soon. That should leave Wright, Douglas and Dorial Green-Beckham as the Titans' preferred three-wide set.

Titans signed seventh-round WR Tre McBride, sixth-round C Andy Gallik, and fourth-round DL Angelo Blackson to four-year contracts.

The draftniks love McBride, but he tumbled all the way to the seventh round thanks to a "diva" attitude and a potential ankle issue. It wouldn't be a shock if he made the team. McBride is worth a dart throw late in Dynasty rookie drafts.
May 13 - 1:42 PM

Titans signed No. 177 overall pick OLB Deiontrez Mount to a four-year contract.

Mount is a sleeper to excel as an outside SAM linebacker in Dick LeBeau's 3-4, but will start off behind Brian Orakpo, Derrick Morgan and Jonathan Massaquoi.
May 12 - 10:05 AM

Shonn Greene is not expected to make the Titans' final roster.

Before the draft, Greene was on shaky ground thanks to the presence of Antonio Andrews. Then the Titans got good value with Minnesota's David Cobb in the fifth round. Assuming Cobb doesn't fall on his face, he'll take the power back role and push Greene to the fringe of the NFL. Greene turns 30 in August and has earned a total of 171 carries in his two seasons as a Titan.

The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt considers Justin Hunter a lock to make the Titans' 53-man roster.

Wyatt also has a "hunch" that Hunter is "going to finally emerge" this season and hold off second-round rookie Dorial Green-Beckham at X receiver. It's not out of the question that both Hunter and DGB could be part of the Titans' three-wide packages, along with Kendall Wright, pushing Harry Douglas into a No. 4 role as the backup to all three. Hunter's hype train went off the tracks last season, but he could probably be viewed as a potential bargain at his current ADP of 14.05.
May 11 - 10:34 PM

According to charting done by Football Outsiders, both Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter finished in the top-12 wide receivers who saw the highest rates of "uncatchable" targets in 2014.

Football Outsiders charted 27 of Hunter's 67 targets as uncatchable, good for a whopping 40.3-percent clip that "led" all wide receivers. Wright runs routes closer to the line of scrimmage -- more high-percentage stuff -- yet still saw 30 uncatchable balls among 93 targets (32.3 percent). Hunter is in danger of losing his starting job to rookie Dorial Green-Beckham, but Wright could take a decent-sized PPR leap if Marcus Mariota is more efficient than Tennessee's 2014 motley crew of Jake Locker, Charlie Whitehurst, and Zach Mettenberger.
May 9 - 9:08 AM

Titans waived/injured TE Brett Brackett.

Buried on the depth chart in Tennessee, Brackett apparently isn't fully recovered from a knee ailment that sent him to injured reserve last December.
May 8 - 4:12 PM

One AFC OC said Dorial Green-Beckham was "completely lost" when asked to go over plays during a pre-draft visit.

Thanks to a laundry list of off-field issues, Green-Beckham did not play football in 2014. It's not a surprise that he struggled to grasp concepts and playbooks as he's been relying on truly unique natural ability for his entire career. The Titans are betting on physical talent here, hoping DGB doesn't end up like Cordarrelle Patterson or new teammate Justin Hunter. "Whoever takes him better have a plan for him because it could be rough early on," the offensive coordinator said.
