Titans coach Mike Mularkey reiterated on Tuesday that DeMarco Murray remains the team's "workhorse."

Mularkey said the same thing last month. It stands to reason that sophomore Derrick Henry will get more opportunities following an impressive rookie campaign, but at least to begin the year, the Titans will attempt to maintain the status quo. Headed into his age-29 season, Murray faded down the stretch in 2016.

In an interview with KHON2 Honolulu, Marcus Mariota (broken leg) was shown walking normally and running on the beach.

Forced to use a scooter to get around just a month ago, Mariota seems to be progressing quickly in his recovery from a broken fibula. "This process has been really good," Mariota said. "I’m in a good spot." The Titans are going to take it slow with their franchise quarterback, but he will likely be ready for training camp.

Titans signed OL Tim Lelito, formerly of the Saints.

It's a nice addition to an already stacked offensive line. Lelito made just seven spot starts last year, but adds depth and is a strong presence in the run game. He should back up at multiple spots.

Free agent OL Tim Lelito is visiting the Titans on Wednesday.

Lelito previously visited the Lions. He has experience at center, guard, and tackle and would be a capable starter in a pinch. Lelito started 13 games at left guard in 2015, receiving really strong marks for his run blocking from Pro Football Focus. It's somewhat surprising the 26-year-old hasn't drawn more looks.

Titans signed ILB Wesley Woodyard to a two-year extension through 2019.

The restructure lowers Woodyard's base salary to $2.2 million this season. Woodyard started 10 games last year but is no longer a full-time player. The extension won't stop the Titans from upgrading on him in the draft.

Free agent G/C Tim Lelito is visiting the Lions on Wednesday.

A 13-game starter at left guard in 2015, Lelito was sent back to the bench last season, making just seven spot starts. He has position versatility, as Lelito played left guard, right tackle, and center last year. In 2015, Lelito was Pro Football Focus' No. 7-ranked run-blocking guard out of 82 qualifiers.

According to PFT's Mike Florio, the Titans offered to swap first-round picks -- No. 5 for No. 11 -- and a third-round pick to the Saints in exchange for Brandin Cooks.

Appearing on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville on Monday, Titans GM Jon Robinson revealed he never offered the No. 18 pick for Cooks, the second of two first-rounders the Titans own. The No. 5 selection is via the Rams. If Tennessee truly offered a swap of first-rounders that high in the draft in addition to a three, it's surprising New Orleans didn't bite at that proposal over the Patriots' No. 32 pick and a third it ultimately accepted in exchange for Cooks last Friday. This would indicate the Titans remain in the market for a playmaking outside receiver.

Titans signed NT Sylvester Williams, formerly of the Broncos, to a three-year contract.

The 28-year-old has three years of starting experience, but was a liability against the run last season. Williams gets a fresh start in Tennessee, where he'll compete with Austin Johnson to replace Al Woods at nose tackle
Mar 10 - 9:19 PM

Titans re-signed TE Phillip Supernaw.

27-year-old Supernaw logged over 300 offensive snaps and played special teams for last year's Titans. He will likely see less time on offense this season.
Mar 10 - 3:42 PM

Titans signed WR Eric Weems, formerly of the Falcons.

Weems rarely sees the field on offense (he wasn't targeted over 17 offensive snaps in 2016), but plays an important role on special teams. Last year he served as the Falcons' primary kick returner, averaging 23 yards per attempt. He should be used in a similar capacity in Tennessee.
Mar 10 - 10:23 AM

Titans signed CB Logan Ryan, formerly of the Patriots, to a three-year, $30 million contract.

Ryan is reuniting with GM Jon Robinson, who helped draft him in New England. The No. 83 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Ryan has been a contributor from Day 1, and is coming off back-to-back solid seasons as a starter opposite Malcolm Butler. He's a needed upgrade for a Titans cornerback corps that mixed and matched alongside a declining Jason McCourty in 2016. Ryan is probably near the peak of his upside, but only 26, has lots of solid football left in the tank.
Mar 9 - 11:35 PM

Titans re-signed DT Karl Klug to a two-year contract.

It should be a cheap deal with Klug coming off a torn Achilles'. When healthy, Klug is a useful situational pass rusher on the interior. He has 20 sacks and five forced fumbles across six NFL seasons, all of them with the Titans.
Mar 9 - 9:12 PM

Titans signed S Brynden Trawick, formerly of the Raiders, to a two-year, $4.75 million contract with $3 million guaranteed.

Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the deal has a max value of $6.85 million. 27-year-old Trawick won't be playing much defense in Tennessee, but he is one of the NFL's premier kickoff and punt coverage specialists.
Mar 9 - 5:02 PM

Titans re-signed LB Nate Palmer to a two-year contract.

The Titans have locked up Palmer and LB Daren Bates for their special teams units.
Mar 9 - 4:51 PM

Titans signed LB Daren Bates, formerly of the Raiders, to a three-year, $6 million contract.

A special teams ace, Bates managed eight tackles in kick coverage in 2016.
