Titans second-round DE Harold Landry to a four-year contract.

Landry was considered a potential Day 1 talent who fell to Day 2. Landry (6’2/252) set a Boston College single-season record with 16.5 sacks as a 2016 junior, then managed five sacks in eight games as a senior before suffering a year-ending ankle injury. Healthy for the Combine, Landry blew it up with a 4.64 forty and 87th-percentile athleticism. Landry’s tape reveals an edge-bending speed rusher who is unlikely to be a run-defense factor early in his career. Still, Landry’s outside pass-rush skills raise his floor as a sub-package contributor at worst with a double-digit-sack ceiling.

Titans coach Mike Vrabel expects RT Jack Conklin (knee) to return during training camp.

It was reported in February that Conklin — who tore his ACL in the Divisional Round — would begin camp on the active/PUP list. ACL recoveries are quicker for linemen than skill players, but that would still be a quick turnaround. The Titans' only goal should be to have Conklin ready for Week 1.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan is skipping the team's mandatory minicamp.

The Titans announced the holdout themselves. Set to earn $9.34 million in the final year of his deal, Lewan is looking for a long-term extension which will make him the highest-paid tackle in the league, a mark currently held by Giants LT Nate Solder's four-year, $62 million contract. GM Jon Robinson said the Titans are "working to keep Taylor as part of this organization for a long time."

Titans OLB Kevin Dodd will report for mandatory minicamp.

Dodd has skipped the offseason program to this point, deciding instead to train at home. It is an odd decision, to say the least. Not only has Dodd played just 271 defensive snaps since being selected in the second round of the 2016 draft, but he is giving up valuable time which could have been spent learning a new defensive system and endearing himself to the new staff. Especially after they selected Harold Landry in the second round, it would not be surprising if the Titans looked to move Dodd during camp.

Speaking Tuesday, Titans OC Matt LaFleur said he views "both" Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis as his "1A and 1B" backs.

In other words, it's going to be a near-even committee. "I feel confident in both those guys," LaFleur elaborated. "They both bring a little bit different qualities to what they do. ... We've got two brilliant backs that we are excited about." This isn't just coachspeak. Henry should have the edge on early downs, but Lewis has proven he's also capable of banging between the tackles. Lewis is going to catch more passes. Henry figures to be more valuable in standard, while Lewis probably has a decisive edge in PPR.

Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website singled out WR Michael Campanaro as someone who has stood out at OTAs.

Campanaro was signed late in free agency after spending his first four years in Baltimore, mainly battling injuries during that span. The 5'9/191 slot receiver and returner has just 31 career catches but could push for some slot work in Tennessee. He'd have to hold off/overtake sophomore Taywan Taylor. New OC Matt LaFleur was in L.A. when Cooper Kupp went off as a 2017 rookie.

Contract-year LT Taylor Lewan said he hopes to become the league’s highest-paid left tackle.

New Giants LT Nate Solder currently holds that distinction after landing a four-year, $62 million deal with $35 million guaranteed in March. Lewan is arguably better and is younger than Solder at 26. As the salary cap rises each year, nobody at any one position holds the "highest paid" title for long. Lewan will earn over $9 million in 2018 if he isn't extended ahead of Week 1.

TitansOnline.com's Jim Wyatt writes Corey Davis "continues to impress" during OTAs.

The No. 5 overall pick last year, Davis started his career on the wrong foot, missing most of training camp with a hamstring injury and another five games early in the season after the issue flared up. He flashed in the playoffs with 63 yards and two touchdowns against the Patriots, however, and has the talent to be a true No. 1 option for Marcus Mariota. With the offense poised to take a step forward under new OC Matt LaFleur, Davis could break out.
May 31 - 12:08 PM

Contract-year LT Taylor Lewan hasn't had "any substantial talks" with the Titans.

Lewan doesn't plan to hold out despite the lack of progress. He's open to an in-season deal if he's not extended before training camp. With Nate Solder landing a four-year, $62 million contract from the Giants, Lewan should push for $15 million annually.
May 30 - 6:51 PM

Titans signed WR Nick Williams, formerly of the Falcons.

Williams knows new OC Matt LaFleur from their time together with both the Redskins and Falcons. He'll compete for one of the very last 53-man jobs.
May 16 - 11:07 AM

Titans signed first-round LB Rashaan Evans to a four-year contract.

The deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2022. The Titans traded up from No. 25 to snag Evans at No. 22. Evans’ lone deficiency is in coverage, where he remains a work in progress and may not be ready to play on all three downs. Still a relentless, violent, and explosive off-ball linebacker, Evans projects as a plus starter with uncommon pass-rush versatility for his position. He compares to Lawrence Timmons coming out.
May 15 - 6:29 PM

Titans signed sixth-round QB Luke Falk to a four-year contract.

Sixth-round S Dane Cruikshank has also signed his rookie deal. A 40-game starter at Wazzu, Falk completed 68.3 percent of his throws to go along with a 119:39 TD-to-INT ratio at 7.1 yards per attempt. Falk’s stock dipped as a senior as he was temporarily benched and set career-low efficiency marks. A sub-par athlete who took a whopping 107 sacks over his final three seasons, Falk’s strengths are his quick release and mastery of Mike Leach’s all-shotgun spread. Similar to A.J. McCarron, Falk is a probable long-term backup with an outside chance to become a low-end NFL starter.
May 10 - 5:28 PM

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt reports QB Blaine Gabbert is the "favorite" to win the team's backup job.

Titans waived Alex Tanney leaving only Gabbert, sixth-round rookie Luke Falk, and second-year UDFA Tyler Ferguson as the team's backup options. The trio will jostle for position throughout camp but Gabbert remains the odds-on favorite to be No. 2 behind Marcus Mariota. Gabbert played surprisingly well in his five-game run as the Cardinals' starter last season and has a good chance of seeing the field given Mariota's history of injuries.
May 5 - 11:15 AM

Titans signed S Kendrick Lewis.

30-year-old (in June) Lewis spent last season out of the league after he was released by the Ravens last March. He's made 81 career starts but will be competing for a bottom-of-the-roster spot with the Titans this summer.
May 2 - 11:05 AM

Titans signed UCLA DE Matt Dickerson.

Dickerson (6’5/292) was a two-plus-year starter on the Bruins’ defensive line, managing seven tackles for loss with 1.5 sacks, then breaking his collarbone last October and missing the final six games. Long on size and athleticism but short on college production, Dickerson helped himself at the Combine with a 5.06 forty, 31-inch vertical, and 26 reps on the bench. Dickerson profiles as a long-term rotational role player.
