Titans OC Terry Robiskie said WR Harry Douglas' leadership is "a plus" for the team.

"He knows the system and he knows it well," Robiskie said. "He knows how to compete, how to get after it. And the thing about him is we can count on him a little bit to a be a leader in the room." Douglas does bring a veteran presence to what is an extremely young receiver corps, but he is well below-average on the field. Luckily for him, Douglas only has to beat out Justin Hunter and Tre McBride for a roster spot.

Marcus Mariota told coach Mike Mularkey he would "hand the ball off 40 times" if that's what it took to win games.

"That's what's important to me, to giving us an opportunity to win," Mariota continued. "Having those two workhorses back there should help us out." The two workhorses Mariota references are DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, the likely focal points of Tennessee's #ExoticSmashmouth attack. There is literally no chance the Titans run the ball 40 times a game, but the scheme should limit Mariota's passing attempts and upside if the defense can hold up their end of the bargain. Luckily for Mariota, that is a big if.

Dorial Green-Beckham said he "had a good offseason."

Not many people would characterize an offseason in which they lost their first-team role to a rookie as a success, but Green-Beckham is staying positive. "I had a hamstring problem that set me back early," DGB said, "but other than that I have been taking care of myself, learning the playbook, and have done my best to play fast." Green-Beckham will likely open the season in the starting lineup, but it is concerning he seems unfazed by the snaps he is losing to rookie Tajae Sharpe. He is an extremely volatile WR4 for fantasy.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan has joined free agent LT Eugene Monroe in asking the NFL to study the potential benefits of medical marijuana.

"I feel like the NFL has a responsibility to look into it, to delegate time and money to research this for its players," Morgan said. "There's a lot of people suffering and a lot of people that can benefit from cannabis as a medical treatment." There were whispers Monroe was cut by the Ravens in part because the team didn't agree with his stance, but Morgan isn't worried about any backlash. "It's about not only us," he said, "but former players, future players and more so society as a whole."

DeMarco Murray said he feels more comfortable in Mike Mularkey's offense than he did with Chip Kelly in Philadelphia.

"It’s strictly downhill and that’s what I’ve been accustomed to my entire life," said Murray. "Nothing against last year or what happened, it just didn’t work out." Murray was running on fumes last season after being overworked in his last year with Dallas. A change of scenery in a simpler offense could be Murray's ticket to a bounce-back season. He'll need to create distance ahead of 2015 Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry first.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky kept RB Bishop Sankey on his 53-man roster projection.

Kuharsky kept Sankey around instead of Antonio Andrews and 2015 fifth-rounder David Cobb. That trio is likely competing for one roster spot, and at this point it is anyone's guess who emerges in training camp. Sankey has averaged just 3.8 yards per carry over 199 career attempts, but that is still better than anything Andrews or Cobb has been able to muster.

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt believes Tennessee wants to keep WR Justin Hunter.

Wyatt believes Hunter will make the final roster "if he has a good camp." That is a big if for a player with Hunter's history of inconsistencies, but it is interesting the Titans apparently remain committed to a second-round bust entering the final year of his rookie deal. Hunter likely needs to beat out Harry Douglas and sophomore Tre McBride for a roster spot. That is not a terribly tall task.

Delanie Walker has the 10th-highest target share in the league last season.

Walker was the target on 26.9 percent of the Titans' passes when healthy, the largest percentage among tight ends. With Rishard Matthews now in town and Dorial Green-Beckham perhaps poised for a step forward, that number will likely come down. Add in what could be a run-heavy approach (#ExoticSmashmouth), and Walker could see a sharp decline from the 133 targets he banked last year. Despite a top-five finish last season, he is more of a back-end TE1 this time around.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey confirmed Quinton Spain is still atop the depth chart at left guard.

"He hasn’t done anything to lose it," Mularkey said. Spain started the final six games last season and has worked with the first team throughout the offseason program, but his reign is unlikely to continue. Spain should cede the starting job to either 2015 third-rounder Jeremiah Poutasi or 2016 sixth-rounder Sebastian Tretola in training camp.

Rishard Matthews has been getting most of the first-team reps at outside receiver.

Rookie Tajae Sharpe has been playing opposite Matthews, with Kendall Wright in the slot. The Titans gave Matthews a three-year deal this offseason, but there aren’t any guaranteed roles going into training camp. Dorial Green-Beckham remains a strong candidate for one of the starting spots.

Titans CB Brice McCain has been getting first-team reps in minicamp.

He's been rotating with Perrish Cox opposite Jason McCourty. McCain was utterly abysmal for the Dolphins last season, but the Titans have apparently liked what they've seen. Even were McCain to earn "starting duties," he'd kick inside to the slot in nickel situations. It's ultimately hard to see McCain passing Cox on the depth chart.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey admits he's trying to motivate Dorial Green-Beckham by not considering him a starter heading into training camp.

"I am hoping they take it personal," Mularkey said of Green-Beckham and Justin Hunter. "And that they’re going to come back in here in better shape, and better prepared and healthy, ready to go out of the first practice." It's a major red flag that the Titans are still having to play these sorts of head games with DGB as a sophomore NFLer. It's plainly inexcusable for him to be behind fifth-rounder Tajae Sharpe on the depth chart, motivational tactic or not. Green-Beckham has immense physical gifts, but needs the light to come on.
Jun 16 - 2:44 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said fifth-round WR Tajae Sharpe will open training camp as a starter.

It's not a huge surprise with Sharpe getting first-team reps all spring. Sharpe has been more consistent than Dorial Green-Beckham, making him the early favorite for one of the outside roles in Tennessee's wide-open depth chart. Mularkey later hinted that placing Sharpe ahead of Green-Beckham for now may be a motivational tactic aiming at getting the most out of DGB.
Jun 16 - 12:31 PM

According to ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky, fifth-round WR Tajae Sharpe has passed Dorial Green-Beckham on the depth chart "for now."

Sharpe has been getting a ton of work with the first team and continues to do so at minicamp, working alongside Rishard Matthews and Kendall Wright. WRs coach Bob Bratkowski said DGB's year away from football in college is playing a big part in his slowed development. "That kind of a gap, it has an effect on them," he said. "It takes time." DGB is far-and-away the Titans' most talented pass catcher, but he's going to need to step up his game this summer.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss mentioned Bishop Sankey as a running back that could potentially interest New England.

The Patriots have good depth among pass-catching running backs, starting with Dion Lewis and James White, but they could be in the market for a between-the-tackles runner type with LeGarrette Blount coming off injury and entering his age-30 season. Sankey seems destined to be gone from Tennessee after the Titans added DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry this spring.
