Titans re-signed CB Brandon Harris to a one-year contract.

Harris, the 60th pick in the 2011 draft by the Texans, appeared in 11 games for the Titans last season, playing 112 defensive snaps as a part-time slot corner. He'll compete for one of the final roster spots in training camp this summer.

The Titans didn't know Jake Locker was planning to retire.

"Same time you guys did," was coach Ken Whisenhunt's response when asked when he found out about Locker's decision. Whisenhunt said he wouldn't be surprised if Locker eventually attempted a comeback, but going on 27 with an absurdly-long injury history, Locker's window to return won't be big.

Titans interim president Steve Underwood insists the team is not for sale, and says it's "committed to moving the franchise in the right direction in Nashville."

"My sources are the five people who own the team, and to a person they all say the team is not for sale." Underwood said. "There have been no offers. I don't think they would listen to any offers, but no one has made any offers." Sale rumors have persisted for months, and intensified following the retirement of president and CEO Tommy Smith. Underwood is being fairly unequivocal, but it would be far from shocking if the Titans ended up on the block some time in the next six months.

Tommy Smith announced he is stepping down as President and CEO of the Titans.

Smith plans to focus on Adams Resources and Energy, Inc., where he serves as president and chairman. "I have given this decision very careful thought, and while I dearly love the Titans and am proud of my active role with the franchise over many decades, I can’t serve two big roles as effectively as I had hoped," Smith said. "My family, my long-term personal health and the ability to make sound daily decisions for two fine companies all came into play." Smith's retirement adds credence to the rumors the Titans will be sold in 2015.

Titans re-signed OT Byron Stingily to a two-year contract.

A 2011 sixth-rounder, Stingily has made nine career starts, five of which came last season. He's a replacement-level talent, one who will fight for the Titans' No. 3 or 4 tackle job in 2015.

The Ravens were interested in Perrish Cox before he signed with the Titans.

The Ravens are set at corner, but want depth behind Jimmy Smith and a seemingly in-decline Lardarius Webb. Smith is coming off foot surgery, an injury that left the Ravens woefully undermanned at corner last season.

Titans signed CB Perrish Cox to a three-year, $15 million contract.

Cox is coming off a strong 2014 with the 49ers, finishing behind only Glover Quin and Tashaun Gipson with five interceptions. He'll be an immediate upgrade as a boundary corner in the Titans' secondary opposite Jason McCourty. Cox's signing will move Blidi Wreh-Wilson into a sub-package role. Tramon Williams and Rashean Mathis are now the top remaining free-agent corners.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky expects ILB Zach Brown to start in 2015.

Brown was expected to have a big role last season, but he tore his pectoral four snaps into the season and spent the year on injured reserve. Now healthy, Brown should be able to unseat Wesley Woodyard as the starter opposite Avery Williamson in the Titans' 3-4 scheme. With Derrick Morgan back and Brian Orakpo in town, the Titans should have a dramatically improved front seven.

The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt says the "smart money" is on the Titans sticking with Zach Mettenberger as their starting quarterback.

The Titans will have a shot at Oregon QB Marcus Mariota or Florida St. QB Jameis Winston with the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft, but the prevailing wisdom over the last several months is the Titans will pass on both. Mettenberger flashed a quality arm and composure in his six games as starter last season, but his ceiling is likely lower than Mariota's or Winston's. Tennessee is expected to draft USC DL Leonard Williams if they do not trade down.

The 49ers have made no effort to re-sign free agent CB Perrish Cox.

San Francisco has moved on, bringing in former Chargers CB Shareece Wright for a visit on Friday. Cox is also moving on, visiting with the Redskins, Browns and Titans this week. A bigger defensive back with good ball skills, Cox is the second-best corner left on the market behind Tramon Williams.

Titans signed TE Anthony Fasano, formerly of the Chiefs.

Fasano is a pure blocking and red-zone tight end. The Titans continue to get slower and older on offense with the additions of Fasano and WR Harry Douglas. Fasano will play on the end of the line and fade into the darkness in Tennessee.
Mar 13 - 11:56 AM

Titans re-signed DE Karl Klug.

Klug is an undersized pocket pusher with a great motor. He recorded 14.5 sacks across his first four seasons and even dabbled on offense as a lead blocker. Klug will continue to fill his versatile reserve role along the Titans' front.
Mar 13 - 10:43 AM

Titans re-signed K Ryan Succop to a three-year contract.

Succop drilled 19-of-22 field goals last season, setting a career-high with his 86.4 percent success rate. He'll remain a bottom-barrel fantasy option in this offense.
Mar 13 - 10:04 AM

Titans re-signed DE/OLB Derrick Morgan to a four-year, $27 million contract with $10.5 million guaranteed.

Tennessee was expected to pursue an edge rusher in the draft, but that won't be necessary with Morgan and Brian Orakpo in the fold. Tampa Bay, Dallas, and Atlanta were also in the hunt for Morgan. Morgan's 6.5 sacks last season tied a career high. He also played stout run defense. Having just turned 26 years old, Morgan was smartly made a priority to re-sign by the Titans. Tennessee now has some intriguing pieces in the front seven, with Jurell Casey on the line, Orakpo and Morgan off the edge, and promising sophomore Avery Williamson at inside linebacker.
Mar 13 - 8:32 AM

Titans signed OLB Brian Orakpo to a four-year, $32 million contract with $13.5 million guaranteed.

It's one of the best moves Tennessee has made after signing spare part WR Harry Douglas and sitting out the DeMarco Murray sweepstakes. Orakpo couldn't have expected a better deal than this coming off an injury-shortened 2014 campaign and a wholly injury-marred career. He managed 0.5 sacks in seven games last season. Orakpo was supposed to visit Arizona but never left Tennessee. Having addressed one half of their edge-rushing need, the Titans are still hoping to re-sign Derrick Morgan.
