Second-year LT Taylor Lewan thinks the Titans' offensive line was "soft" last season.

"And I think (OL coach) Bob Bostad would say the same thing," Lewan said. "That’s one thing he’s definitely been preaching this offseason. We want to be tough, we want to road grade, we want to run that power like no one’s ever done it." We don't know about "soft," but the Titans' line was definitely ineffective last season, especially in the passing game. As for Lewan, he showed promise on the blindside. He's a nice building block for Marcus Mariota to stand behind.

The Titans don't want to "over-rep" Dorial Green-Beckham early in training camp, and will limit the packages he's involved in.

Green-Beckham is being babied along after missing all of OTAs with a hamstring injury. It's far from ideal for a player who enters the league as an exceptionally-raw prospect. DGB oozes upside, but it's hard to see him making a consistent re-draft impact as a rookie.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt has confirmed Marcus Mariota is the team's starter.

Speaking about the Titans' "quarterback competition," Whisenhunt was emphatic that it was "after Marcus." It's not in any way surprising, but the Titans aren't going to make the No. 2 overall pick jump through any artificial hoops on his way to No. 1 status.

Justin Hunter reported for Titans training camp on Thursday.

"We're supporting Justin, excited to have him on field," were the words of coach Ken Whisenhunt. The league has said it's "reviewing" Hunter's assault case. Hunter has been a bust since being the No. 34 overall pick of the 2013 draft, but it appears his roster spot is safe as the Titans transition into the Marcus Mariota era.

Titans re-signed TE Chase Coffman.

Coffman appeared in 13 games (three starts) with Tennessee last year. He'll provide depth after the release of Taylor Thompson. Coffman is a catch-first tight end, but a slow and plodding one.

The NFL confirms it is "reviewing" Justin Hunter's assault case.

As it does every off-the-field issue. "That is the extent of what we can say at this point," said spokesman Greg Aiello. "I can’t speculate on outcomes." Hunter was charged with felony assault for allegedly breaking a man's jaw on July 3. The Titans will let him participate in camp in the interim.
Jul 27 - 1:55 PM

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky expects Bishop Sankey to be the team's Week 1 starter at tailback, but to "lose carries to rookie David Cobb."

Fifth-rounder Cobb lacks Sankey's theoretical big-play ability, but is a superior runner between the tackles. Cobb, however, is going to face competition himself from fellow bruiser Antonio Andrews. The Titans used as many as four running backs throughout last season, giving Sankey, Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster, and even Leon Washington playing time in their backfield. This could be a frustrating fantasy situation again this year.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky expects the team to open the season with Harry Douglas and Kendall Wright starting at wide receiver.

Oof. It would be quite the disappointment if second-round rookie Dorial Green-Beckham didn't win a first-team job out of camp, especially after Justin Hunter's felony assault arrest. If Douglas and Wright are indeed the first-string wideouts, the Titans would field the worst receiver corps in the league.

The prosecution says Justin Hunter "sucker-punched" his victim after the bar brawl had settled down.

Hunter allegedly started the July 3 fight by punching the man in the face twice. After the man was bent over and spitting out blood on the sidewalk, Hunter then allegedly "sucker-punched" him again before leaving. The man suffered a broken jaw and a cracked tooth. Hunter was released from jail on $25,000 bond on Tuesday and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Sept. 3. The Titans plan to let him participate in training camp as the legal process runs its course.
Jul 23 - 9:19 AM

The Titans expect Justin Hunter to participate when training camp opens next week despite his recent arrest for felony assault.

The Titans' plan is to "let the legal process play out," and for Hunter to practice. The approach is likely in the best interests of both Hunter and the team. Although Hunter has been a disappointment on the field through two NFL seasons, he has no prior history of causing problems off of it.
Jul 21 - 9:49 PM

Titans signed No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota to a four-year, $24.2 million contract with a club option for year five.

Finally. Mariota was the last first-round rookie to sign as the sides haggled over offset language. Per Terry McCormick of Titan Insider, Mariota and the team wound up compromising on "partial offsets." The Titans drew a ton of negative publicity for their delay in getting Mariota under contract, but he didn't miss any portion of the offseason because of it, and will be on time for training camp. By all accounts, Mariota was extremely impressive at OTAs and minicamp, showing pinpoint accuracy. He has the tools to turn around the Titans' franchise.

Justin Hunter is eligible to be released from jail on $25,000 bond in Virginia Beach, Va.

Hunter was arraigned on Tuesday and is expected to be released from jail this afternoon. Under terms of his release, Hunter has an 11 PM - 5 AM curfew and isn't allowed to consume alcohol. His felonious assault charge is punishable by 5-20 years in prison and a $100,000 fine. Hunter will likely plea down at some point during his legal process. A preliminary hearing is set for September 3.
Jul 21 - 4:29 PM

Police say the alleged victim in the Justin Hunter felonious assault case sustained "serious, but not life-threatening" injuries.

Hunter was charged with stabbing, cutting, malicious intent and wounding as well as the felonious assault charge after a brawl inside the Sandbar Raw Bar. The victim was admitted to the hospital with broken bones. Hunter will be arraigned later Tuesday and will likely be placed on the Commissioner's Exempt list until the case is resolved. The Titans could also choose to simply move on from a player that flopped badly on the field last season.

The Tennessean says Titans RB Antonio Andrews will be given a "good, long look" at training camp.

Beat writers and coaches keep banging the drum for Andrews. But the reality is he was given zero carries last year even though Shonn Greene was hurt and Bishop Sankey was ineffective. We're expecting Andrews to get iced by David Cobb relatively easily in August.
Jul 21 - 8:23 AM

Justin Hunter faces one charge of felonious assault following a July 3 incident in Virginia Beach, Va.

Hunter turned himself into authorities on Monday after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He'll be arraigned on Tuesday. The July 3 incident took place at the Sandbar Raw Bar. Hunter has been jailed in the city jail on no bond. Already on the hot seat with the Titans, this could be Hunter's final straw.
