Titans selected USC CB Adoree' Jackson with the No. 18 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

Jackson (5’10/186) was a jack of many trades for the Trojans, scoring eight return TDs, six more at receiver, and intercepting six passes with three forced fumbles at cornerback. He won the 2016 Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back. Jackson is experienced shadowing No. 1 wideouts, and also ran track at USC. He showed unsurprisingly well at the Combine, blazing 4.42 with a respectable 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. Jackson is a smallish gambler who may best project to the slot, but his twitchy athleticism, natural ball skills, and versatility should earn him early playing time. He'll be an immediate contributor in the return game.

Titans selected Western Michigan WR Corey Davis with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Davis (6’3/209) graduated as the NCAA’s all-time leader in receiving yards (5,278), tallying 331 career receptions (15.9 YPR) and 52 touchdowns and earning 2016 MAC Offensive Player of the Year. Also smart, Davis scored 31 on the Wonderlic Test. Post-season ankle surgery prevented Davis from testing before the draft, and he did drop 11 passes as a senior. A plus-sized wideout who moves like a smaller man, Davis showed impressive quickness for his size on tape and dominated after the catch a la early-career Brandon Marshall. Davis drew pre-draft comparisons to Michael Thomas and Keenan Allen. Tennessee is a strong fit for Davis' immediate fantasy outlook with high-level quarterback play and non-dominant talent in the rest of the Titans' pass-catcher corps.

Titans GM Jon Robinson said there is a "50/50" chance he will be able to trade down in the first round.

Sitting just ahead of the Jets, the Titans could be in a prime spot if the Browns decide to pass on UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky at No. 1 overall. Any team which covets Trubisky will want to jump New York to ensure they land him, and that gives Tennessee more leverage than some of the other teams looking to move down. The Titans are likely looking to recoup the second-round pick they traded away last year.

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports the Ravens have "considerable interest" in Western Michigan WR Corey Davis, and Davis is "one of their stronger options" at the No. 16 overall pick.

Wilson presently covers the Texans, but he wrote for the Carroll County Times and Baltimore Sun for many years on the Ravens' beat, so his reporting is noteworthy. The Ravens' wideout group is among the weakest in football with Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman returning atop the depth chart. Davis has the best game film of any receiver in this draft. He played in the MAC, however, and did not work out before the draft due to ankle surgery.
Apr 26 - 9:35 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Titans "already have received offers" for their No. 5 overall pick and are contemplating a trade to move back in the draft.

Most teams in the top-10 apparently want to move back, but you have to find a trade partner. Titans GM Jon Robinson might have one, and he sits in a good spot just ahead of the Jets at No. 6. Teams may be looking to jump ahead of New York possibly for a quarterback, and No. 5 could be a landing spot for the Browns looking to come up from 12th overall. Tennessee doesn't currently own a second-round pick, and word is they want one or more of them for Friday.

Titans OLB Kevin Dodd (foot) still isn't 100 percent healthy.

Speaking Tuesday, GM Jon Robinson deemed Dodd's injury "delicate." The 2016 second-rounder is still dealing with pain. It's bad news after Dodd's rookie year was wrecked by foot issues. Dodd had a "preventative" — i.e. necessary — operation last May before struggling through foot problems basically all season. He played 179 ineffective snaps before landing on injured reserve. Dodd should be considered questionable for training camp.
Apr 25 - 3:01 PM

Titans exercised LT Taylor Lewan's fifth-year team option for 2018.

The move was a formality, as Lewan has emerged as one of the league's best young left tackles. The sides will surely talk about a long-term extension this summer. Locking Lewan up now would free 2018 up for Marcus Mariota long-term talks.
Apr 25 - 1:56 PM

Western Michigan WR Corey Davis visited the Ravens, Titans, Eagles, Browns, and Cardinals.

It is usually foolish to put much stock into where a prospect visits, but Davis' list could be important considering he was not able to work out at the Combine or his Pro Day because of ankle surgery. Davis did post a video showing him running routes, and he expects to be at full health in a few weeks. Of the visits, Davis noted the "feel" with the Ravens was "a lot different" than the others. Owners of the No. 16 pick, Baltimore could certainly use a receiver with Davis' skill set.

Titans WR Harry Douglas has agreed to a $2 million pay cut for 2017.

Douglas' salary has been slashed from $3.75 million to $1.75 million. He can make back $1.75 million through incentives. Going on 32 with zero on-field impact, it's surprising Douglas was kept at all. The Titans clearly value his leadership.
Apr 18 - 2:20 PM

Titans SS Da'Norris Searcy has agreed to cut his 2017 salary from $5.625 million to $3.4 million.

Searcy has also agreed to slash his 2018 salary from $6.125 million to $3.8 million. Searcy had an uneven 2016 as he battled through a high-ankle sprain, playing 552 mediocre snaps. Second-year pro Kevin Byard, free agent addition Johnathan Cyprien and Searcy will be the Titans' top three safeties in 2017.
Apr 18 - 2:11 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he has "no concerns" about Derrick Henry being a no-show for the beginning of offseason workouts on Monday.

We didn't think much of Henry's absence, but a bunch of news outlets made a big deal of it, and so we felt obligated to blurb. These workouts are entirely voluntary and have little to no relevance as it pertains to the 2017 NFL season. "I’ve seen some video of Derrick in the weight room," Mularkey said when asked about Henry's absence. "He is absolutely working out, and I know he is in great playing shape right now. I have no concerns about it, and won’t."
Apr 17 - 5:09 PM

Marcus Mariota (broken leg) hopes to resume running in 2-3 weeks.

He was using a scooter to get around as recently as early March. Mariota will likely miss the entire offseason program, but is progressing on pace to be ready for training camp.
Apr 17 - 1:30 PM

Western Michigan's Corey Davis will visit the Titans on Sunday and Monday.

He'll meet with the Ravens on Monday and Tuesday. Davis would be a logical fit for both teams. Tennessee lost Kendall Wright and showed interest in Brandin Cooks and Alshon Jeffery in free agency. The Ravens are looking to replace Kamar Aiken (Colts) and Steve Smith Sr. (retirement). Many consider Davis the top receiver in this year's draft class.
Apr 16 - 8:36 AM

Ravens assistant GM Eric DeCosta did not mention Western Michigan's Corey Davis when asked about the top receivers in the draft.

He quickly rattled off the names of Clemson's Mike Williams and Washington's John Ross, but he did not throw in Davis' name until later, saying he is "a guy that I think teams like." It is possible DeCosta was throwing up a smokescreen, but the fact he hit Davis with a "compliment" usually reserved for a friend's annoying partner does not suggest they have a high grade on the receiver. If Baltimore decides to take a receiver in the first round, Williams looks like the better bet.

Titans signed CB Demontre Hurst, formerly of the Bears.

A 2013 UDFA, Hurst had been a special teamer and reserve defender for the Bears since 2014. He played 224 snaps on defense last season. Titans GM Jon Robinson talked up his toughness and special teams ability in a release announcing his signing. Hurst turned 26 last month.
