Titans RT Jack Conklin (ACL) said he has suffered "no setbacks" in his rehab.

Conklin tore his ACL during the Divisional Round loss the Patriots in January. While it is great he has not suffered any setbacks, Conklin still has a way to go in his rehab. "You don’t want to come back too early and hurt it again," he said. "I think I need to earn my way back health-wise and practicing and that is something I am working toward and something I am excited to get back to." Conklin is at best questionable for Week 1.

TitansOnline.com's Jim Wyatt reports Corey Davis was "one of the stars" of Titans spring practices.

The fifth overall pick in last year's draft, Davis missed a bunch of rookie time with a hamstring injury, missing most of training camp and the first five games of the season. Per Wyatt, Davis "looked smooth during the offseason, snatching the ball out of the air with ease in traffic" and made "some spectacular catches." Tennessee is counting on Davis to make a significant Year 2 leap.

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt writes the Titans "plan" for Derrick Henry "to be the lead back."

Wyatt adds Henry's performance will determine how the workload is distributed, but Henry is the favorite for carries over Dion Lewis. Terry McCormick of Titan Insider agrees with Wyatt's assessment, but he added it is "not out of the question" Lewis leads the team in all-purpose yards despite Henry getting more carries. This situation looks like a true committee, and Lewis is coming off the board a full three rounds after Henry, making him the better value pick.

Terry McCormick of TitanInsider suggests Derrick Henry will lead the team in carries this season.

McCormick said it's "not out of the question" that Henry could lead the team in rushing attempts but still finish with fewer all-purpose yards than teammate Dion Lewis, who joined Tennessee on a four-year, $20 million contract this offseason. The 247-pound Henry profiles as Tennessee's short-yardage/goal-line back while Lewis should see more involvement on passing downs. Both players are currently being drafted as back-end RB2s in fantasy.

Titans second-year CB Adoree Jackson hopes to continue to get looks on offense under new coach Mike Vrabel.

Jackson was a three-way star at USC, starring on defense, offense, and special teams before the Titans made him the 18th overall pick in last year's draft. As a rookie, Jackson played 12 offensive snaps and ran the ball five times for 55 yards. He should keep his returner job on top of being a starting corner, but Jackson wants to stay involved on offense. Jackson was fantasy's No. 10 corner last year for IDP leagues and remains one of the top assets at his position.

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt believes it's "too early to say" if RT Jack Conklin (knee) will be ready for Week 1.

Conklin missed OTAs recovering from January ACL surgery. He's expected to open training camp on the active/PUP list, but there's hope he'll return before the start of the season. Conklin was one of the top pass-blocking right tackles in the league before going down in the playoffs. The Titans have a proven backup in Dennis Kelly if Conklin isn't back for Week 1.

Titans second-year ILB Jayon Brown "made a lot of plays" during offseason workouts.

Brown repped with the first-team defense this spring. The Titans plan to use him in a larger role after playing 45-percent of snaps as a rookie. Brown is competing with Rashaan Evans and Will Compton to start opposite Wesley Woodyard but should get most of his playing time in sub-packages.

Jim Wyatt of titansonline.com said Marcus Mariota has looked "fast" this offseason.

Mariota has looked noticeably faster since shedding the knee brace he wore for much of last season. The 24-year-old is still adjusting to a new offense under first-year head coach Mike Vrabel but seems to be trending in the right direction. In particular, Wyatt noted that Mariota's throwing technique looked much cleaner during OTAs. The former Heisman Trophy winner is hoping for a bounce-back season after throwing a career-high 15 interceptions in 2017.

Titans second-round DE Harold Landry to a four-year contract.

Landry was considered a potential Day 1 talent who fell to Day 2. Landry (6’2/252) set a Boston College single-season record with 16.5 sacks as a 2016 junior, then managed five sacks in eight games as a senior before suffering a year-ending ankle injury. Healthy for the Combine, Landry blew it up with a 4.64 forty and 87th-percentile athleticism. Landry’s tape reveals an edge-bending speed rusher who is unlikely to be a run-defense factor early in his career. Still, Landry’s outside pass-rush skills raise his floor as a sub-package contributor at worst with a double-digit-sack ceiling.

Titans coach Mike Vrabel expects RT Jack Conklin (knee) to return during training camp.

It was reported in February that Conklin — who tore his ACL in the Divisional Round — would begin camp on the active/PUP list. ACL recoveries are quicker for linemen than skill players, but that would still be a quick turnaround. The Titans' only goal should be to have Conklin ready for Week 1.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan is skipping the team's mandatory minicamp.

The Titans announced the holdout themselves. Set to earn $9.34 million in the final year of his deal, Lewan is looking for a long-term extension which will make him the highest-paid tackle in the league, a mark currently held by Giants LT Nate Solder's four-year, $62 million contract. GM Jon Robinson said the Titans are "working to keep Taylor as part of this organization for a long time."
Jun 12 - 12:52 PM

Titans OLB Kevin Dodd will report for mandatory minicamp.

Dodd has skipped the offseason program to this point, deciding instead to train at home. It is an odd decision, to say the least. Not only has Dodd played just 271 defensive snaps since being selected in the second round of the 2016 draft, but he is giving up valuable time which could have been spent learning a new defensive system and endearing himself to the new staff. Especially after they selected Harold Landry in the second round, it would not be surprising if the Titans looked to move Dodd during camp.

Speaking Tuesday, Titans OC Matt LaFleur said he views "both" Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis as his "1A and 1B" backs.

In other words, it's going to be a near-even committee. "I feel confident in both those guys," LaFleur elaborated. "They both bring a little bit different qualities to what they do. ... We've got two brilliant backs that we are excited about." This isn't just coachspeak. Henry should have the edge on early downs, but Lewis has proven he's also capable of banging between the tackles. Lewis is going to catch more passes. Henry figures to be more valuable in standard, while Lewis probably has a decisive edge in PPR.
Jun 5 - 2:12 PM

Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website singled out WR Michael Campanaro as someone who has stood out at OTAs.

Campanaro was signed late in free agency after spending his first four years in Baltimore, mainly battling injuries during that span. The 5'9/191 slot receiver and returner has just 31 career catches but could push for some slot work in Tennessee. He'd have to hold off/overtake sophomore Taywan Taylor. New OC Matt LaFleur was in L.A. when Cooper Kupp went off as a 2017 rookie.
Jun 1 - 12:44 PM

Contract-year LT Taylor Lewan said he hopes to become the league’s highest-paid left tackle.

New Giants LT Nate Solder currently holds that distinction after landing a four-year, $62 million deal with $35 million guaranteed in March. Lewan is arguably better and is younger than Solder at 26. As the salary cap rises each year, nobody at any one position holds the "highest paid" title for long. Lewan will earn over $9 million in 2018 if he isn't extended ahead of Week 1.
