TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt said he "liked what [he] saw from Kendall Wright this offseason."

Coach Mike Mularkey said he is "expecting a lot" from Wright in May, but there was not much chatter about the fifth-year receiver's performance during the offseason program. With Dorial Green-Beckham seemingly falling out of favor, Wright could establish himself as one of the primary targets in the passing game. Basically undrafted in standard leagues, he could prove something of a value.

The Titans' website reports fifth-round WR Tajae Sharpe has already "established himself as one of the better route runners on the team."

It's one of the reasons he's humorously listed as a starter heading into training camp. Sharpe impressed all spring in shorts and t-shirts, so much so that longtime reporter/current team employee Jim Wyatt considers him a lock for the 53-man roster. Despite his impressive offseason, it would be stunning were Sharpe to open the season as a starter.

The Titans' official website doesn't consider Harry Douglas a lock for the 53-man roster.

Douglas is battling Justin Hunter and sophomore Tre McBride for the team's final receiver spot. He has plenty working in his favor, including his veteran status, a history with coach Mike Mularkey and a team that's prone to bad decisions. Douglas turns 32 in September.

According to the Titans' official website, Dorial Green-Beckham "needs to return to Nashville in better shape" for training camp.

One of the reasons Green-Beckham lost his starting job to Tajae Sharpe in a motivational ploy is that his offseason conditioning wasn't up to snuff. DGB has vowed to be ready for camp after his humbling spring. It's certainly worth noting that Green-Beckham ballooned near 250 pounds last offseason after measuring 6-foot-5, 237 at the 2015 Combine. Green-Beckham is prodigiously talented, but the lightbulb continues to only flicker. It needs to turn on.

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt expects DeMarco Murray to be the "workhorse" this season.

The Titans have consistently praised Murray's attitude and work ethic since acquiring him from the Eagles in March, and Wyatt reports the team expects him to "return to form" this season. While that may be true, they did not spend a second-round pick on Derrick Henry for nothing. Both backs should get work, and Henry could see a lot more than expected if Murray struggles again this season. Murray is ridiculously overpriced as the RB18.

Titans signed No. 64 overall pick S Kevin Byard to a four-year contract.

He was one of the last draft picks to sign. The Middle Tennessee alum will spend his rookie year backing up Da'Norris Searcy and Rashad Johnson. Joey Bosa, Josh Garnett and Darron Lee are the only remaining draft picks who have yet to sign.
Jul 15 - 1:50 PM

Titan Insider's Terry McCormick considers Rishard Matthews and rookie Tajae Sharpe to be Tennessee's starters in two-receiver sets to begin training camp.

Kendall Wright will man the slot, a position that comes off the field in packages that use two tight ends or a fullback. As for Dorial Green-Beckham, McCormick says that by running him with the backups, the "Titans are showing that the spot won’t just be handed to DGB on talent alone." It would be classic Titans for this team to start Tajae Sharpe over Dorial Green-Beckham and Kendall Wright.
Jul 14 - 9:12 PM

Titans WR Tre McBride said he is "a lot more comfortable" this year.

"Internally, I know I can play in the league," McBride said. "Now it is just about whenever I get the opportunities, maximizing it." The 2015 seventh-rounder had a trying rookie season in which he spent much of his time on the practice squad. He did participate in seven games, but he caught just two passes for eight yards and a touchdown. He faces another tough road to the roster this year in a crowded receiver room. He will need a strong camp to grab a spot.

Titans OL Brian Schwenke saw snaps at left guard during the offseason program.

The former starter at center, Schwenke lost his job when the Titans added Ben Jones in free agency. At worst he should serve as Jones' backup, but he will be given a shot to beat out Quinton Spain at left guard. Sophomore Jeremiah Poutasi and rookie Sebastian Tretola will also be in the mix.
Jul 11 - 11:37 AM

Titans RBs coach Sylvester Croom called DeMarco Murray a "coach's dream."

Croom has been "blown away" by Murray's work ethic and leadership skills. He's also been impressed by rookie Derrick Henry, though Murray is obviously the more polished product. Murray imploded in Philly last year and never saw eye-to-eye with head coach Chip Kelly. He's off to a much better start in Tennessee.

Bishop Sankey was "mostly at the back of the line" for running back reps at Titans OTAs.

Coach Mike Mularkey insisted Sankey did "very well" with his opportunities, but there may no longer be a roster spot for Sankey in Tennessee. DeMarco Murray, rookie Derrick Henry, and change-of-pace back Dexter McCluster have jobs sewn up. Sankey will fight Antonio Andrews and David Cobb for the Titans' fourth running back position, assuming of course that Tennessee keeps four.
Jul 7 - 9:26 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said No. 8 overall pick Jack Conklin's transition to right tackle is going "pretty smoothly."

"You don't say a lot to Jack. You're not hearing his name called out a lot," Mularkey continued. "He's just very steady. He knows he's got some time, not a lot, but I think he's made the move over there pretty good." A left tackle in college, Taylor Lewan's presence will force Conklin to the right side as a rookie. The additions of Conklin and C Ben Jones along with potential improvements at guard should help Marcus Mariota stay on his feet more this season.
Jul 4 - 8:15 PM

Titans.com’s Jim Wyatt confirms LG Quinton Spain is the frontrunner to start.

Spain didn’t do anything at OTAs to lose his job. He’ll enter training camp with the first team, but needs to hold off Jeremiah Poutasi and sixth-rounder Sebastian Tretola.
Jul 1 - 7:02 PM

Dorial Green-Beckham said he's been "getting in my playbook a lot and studying" since Titans minicamp.

"So during camp I’ll be one of those guys that’s out there flying around making plays and just having fun and staying in that rhythm the whole year," he continued. DGB is saying all the right things, but maybe he's taken getting bumped from the first-team offense at minicamp to heart. Coach Mike Mularkey called the sophomore out for minor mental errors in the spring. DGB has all the physical tools in the world, but needs to put it all together consistently this summer.
Jun 29 - 1:52 PM

Contract-year WR Justin Hunter admits "there's another level" to his game.

"I am definitely going to have to bring it in training camp," Hunter continued. "There’s a lot of competition, a lot of people fighting for positions and things like that. You can’t slack off because another guy is coming for your spot. I have to keep grinding." The fourth-year underachiever seems to now realize he won't be handed anything with the Titans' additions at his position. He and Dorial Green-Beckham are the two most physically-gifted receivers in Tennessee, but Hunter hasn't done a whole lot since his 2013 rookie year.
