Titans exercised QB Marcus Mariota's 2019 fifth-year option.

This was an absolute no-brainer move, obviously. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 draft, Mariota has yet to play a full 16-game regular season due to injuries, but he's missed just two contests over the past two years, though he was noticeably hampered in several others. His 13 touchdown passes across 15 games last season made for extreme disappointment, but the Titans have brought in a forward-thinking offensive staff this year, led by OC Matt LaFleur, and the scheme is expected to cater to Mariota's strengths as opposed to square-pegging him into a round hole like the old staff. We've heard it before, but Mariota has big breakout potential in 2018.

Dion Lewis expects to share carries with Derrick Henry.

"I think they’re going to use both of us. Derrick’s a great back, so I think we can form a good one-two punch." This falls in line with what's expected. Henry has workhorse traits but Lewis looks likely to cut into his pass-down snaps. Despite coaching staff changes and the release of DeMarco Murray, the Titans should remain a two-back offense.
Apr 13 - 7:34 PM

Titans signed WR/PR Michael Campanaro, formerly of the Ravens.

27-year-old Campanaro was a seventh-round pick in 2014 who caught just 12 passes in his first three seasons while battling numerous injuries. He caught a career-best 19 balls for 173 yards and one score last season and has experience as a punt returner. Campanaro should compete for slot snaps.
Apr 10 - 8:39 PM

Titans agreed to terms with NT Bennie Logan, formerly of the Chiefs.

Logan made 12 starts for the Chiefs last season, totaling 52 tackles and 1.5 sacks over 15 games. He's undoubtedly a fallback option on the team's interior defensive line as the Titans allowed both Sylvester Williams and Karl Klug to walk in free agency and came up short on their quest to sign Ndamukong Suh. Logan will upgrade Tennessee's run defense, especially on early downs.
Apr 8 - 4:18 PM

Free agent WR/PR Michael Campanaro is visiting the Titans on Thursday.

The Ravens are reportedly interested in bringing back Campanaro, but nothing has happened to this point. Campanaro would help out as a return man and receiver depth in Tennessee.
Apr 5 - 11:30 AM

The Titans hosted free agent NT Bennie Logan.

It's the first interest in Logan since he left Seattle without a deal last month. Logan could be a fallback for the Titans after they missed out on Ndamukong Suh. An early-down gap filler, Logan would upgrade Tennessee's run defense.
Apr 4 - 5:07 PM

Titans re-signed LG Quinton Spain to a one-year, $1.9 million contract.

Spain led the league in performance-based pay last season, pocketing an extra $489,782. He earned underwhelming marks from Pro Football Focus, however, and the Titans have signed guards Xavier Su'a-Filo and Kevin Pamphile this offseason. Spain should keep his starting job for 2018 but could find himself on a short leash.
Apr 3 - 1:53 PM

Titans signed ILB Will Compton, formerly of the Redskins.

The Titans lost stud ILB Avery Williams to the Jets in free agency. Wesley Woodyard is still in the building, but second-year ILB Jayon Brown and veteran Compton figure to compete for the other starting job next to Woodyard. Compton is recovering from a Lisfranc injury suffered in November.
Apr 2 - 6:20 PM

Titans LB Jayon Brown will have an expanded role this season.

Brown played 487 snaps (44.7%) in a nickel role last year but didn't make any starts. With Avery Williamson gone, he's the favorite for the inside linebacker job next to Wesley Woodyard. Brown (5'11/226) is undersized and struggles against the run, but he should upgrade Tennessee's pass coverage.

Titans signed GM Jon Robinson to a three-year extension through 2022.

The move was made to align Robinson's contract with new coach Mike Vrabel's. Headed into his third season in Tennessee, Robinson has improved the Titans' roster, but ex-coach Mike Mularkey was holding it back. With "his man" now on the sideline, Robinson is headed into a two-year period that will decide his future.
Mar 27 - 4:56 PM

Titans signed OG Xavier Su'a-Filo, formerly of the Texans.

Su'a-Filo was the Texans' starting left guard the past two seasons, though he was a major liability. He will be reuniting with Mike Vrabel in Tennessee but as a reserve. He joins recent signee Kevin Pamphile as another depth option behind Quinton Spain and Josh Kline.
Mar 27 - 4:50 PM

Titans signed Blaine Gabbert, formerly of the Cardinals.

Tennessee needed a new backup after releasing Matt Cassel earlier this month. Gabbert played surprisingly well early in his five-game run as a starter last season, but the wheels predictably fell off. Still, he is an upgrade on Cassel.
Mar 27 - 7:21 AM

Free agent ILB Will Compton is visiting the Titans.

The Titans will host Compton on Friday and Saturday. It's the second team he's been linked to since making his first visit with the Bills. He's coming off Lisfranc surgery and is visiting Tennessee to potentially replace Avery Williamson, who signed with the Jets.
Mar 23 - 12:03 PM

Titans signed G/T Kevin Pamphile, formerly of the Bucs, to a one-year contract.

Although capable of playing all five spots on the line, Pamphile settled in at guard the past two seasons. He wasn't particularly effective but provides experienced, versatile depth in case the Titans lose LG Quinton Spain in restricted free agency.
Mar 22 - 6:58 PM

Free agent QB Blaine Gabbert visited the Titans.

The Titans are in need of a backup QB after releasing Matt Cassel earlier this month. Gabbert has looked overmatched as a starter since arriving as a first-round pick in 2011, but has fared reasonably well as a backup in San Francisco and Arizona following a failed stint in Jacksonville. Considering Marcus Mariota's history of injuries, Gabbert would have a good chance of seeing the field if he signed with Tennessee.
