Player News - Titans

Date: Team: Pos:

The Titans have promoted GM Jon Robinson to executive vice president, though he will retain his "GM" title.

It's a reward for the ex-Bucs and Patriots executive's excellent first year on the job. It's also a reminder of the Titans' mysterious power structure at the top. There's been a vacuum since longtime owner Bud Adams' death in 2013.
Jan 5 - 7:24 PM

Titans fired WRs coach Bob Bratkowski and assistant WRs coach Jason Tucker.

Before coming to Tennessee, Bratkowski had previously served as Mike Mularkey's OC in Jacksonville. "I have a lot of respect for both Bob and Jason and I want to thank them for their work this year," said Mularkey on Wednesday. "The search process begins now as we look for a coach to lead the wide receivers and add to our coaching group on offense." Bratkowski and Tucker didn't have much to work with this year with Rishard Matthews, Tajae Sharpe and Kendall Wright operating as the team's top three receivers. Giving Marcus Mariota better weapons should be a top priority for Tennessee this offseason.

Impending free agent Kendall Wright said he feels "free."

Benched in Week 14 and a healthy scratch in the season finale, Wright has certainly played his final game with the Titans, who did not have much need for a player they deemed a slot receiver. Wright will head to free agency coming off two disappointing seasons, but he is only 27 and flashed big-time talent early in his career. He might have to settle for a prove-it deal, but Wright could end up being one of the bargains of free agency.

Marcus Mariota will require the assistance of a "knee walker/scooter" for the next two months.

Mariota can't put any weight on his broken leg for eight weeks. Once he can, the real rehab will begin. Mariota could miss the entire offseason program, but barring a setback, will be ready for training camp.
Jan 2 - 2:38 PM

DeMarco Murray (foot) expects to avoid surgery, but hasn't ruled it out.

Murray expects rest to do the trick for his "torn plantar plate," but couldn't completely rule out going under the knife. Murray didn't miss any games, but wasn't the same after his mid-season toe/foot issue. Murray has dealt with foot problems in the past. The ex-Cowboy turns 29 next month.
Jan 2 - 1:05 PM

Titans TE Jace Amaro caught three passes for 59 yards during the 2016 season.

Claimed off waivers from the Jets after final cuts, Amaro played 34 total snaps, six of which came after Week 3. The 2014 second-rounder's NFL future isn't looking bright.
Jan 1 - 11:53 PM

Harry Douglas wasn't targeted in the Titans' Week 17 win over the Texans.

Douglas caught 15 balls during his age-32 campaign, with five of them coming in one game. The most notable moment of his season came in Week 14, when he tried to injure Broncos CB Chris Harris. Douglas is signed for $3.75 million next season, but shouldn't see a penny of that.
Jan 1 - 11:46 PM

Tajae Sharpe was held without a catch on two targets in Tennessee's Week 17 win over the Texans.

Buzzed about all summer, Sharpe got off to a fast start this season, but couldn't have finished any quieter. He caught seven total passes in five games after Thanksgiving. It was a major accomplishment for Sharpe to gain the coaching staff's trust as quickly as he did, but he's an average athlete who fell way behind Rishard Matthews. Still only 22, Sharpe has room to grow, but should be considered a WR5 in Dynasty leagues.
Jan 1 - 6:17 PM

Delanie Walker caught 5-of-8 targets for 35 yards in the Titans' Week 17 win over the Texans.

Walker finishes with 800 yards even, an excellent total for a tight end, but his fewest since 2013, his first year in Tennessee. Walker is prone to collecting nicks and bruises, but has missed only one game each of the past four seasons. Going on 33, Walker will be back as a TE1 in 2017, but the Titans' pass catcher corps is slowly getting more crowded.
Jan 1 - 6:14 PM

Rishard Matthews caught 9-of-13 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 17 win over the Texans.

It was a fitting end to a career campaign for a 27-year-old wideout who emerged as the Titans' No. 1 receiver as the year wore on. In the first season of a three-year, $15 million deal, Matthews posted new career highs across the board (65/945/9), and put himself on the map as a WR2 for 2017. Matthews is a playmaker with a nose for the end zone, and is catching passes from one of the league's best young quarterbacks in Marcus Mariota.
Jan 1 - 6:01 PM

Matt Cassel completed 16-of-26 passes for 150 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Titans' Week 17 win over the Texans.

Making his first start of the season, the Titans tried to hide Cassel as much as possible. Going on 35, Cassel hasn't had it in quite some time. Marcus Mariota has had an extremely promising first two years, but also been a bit of an injury risk. The Titans need to upgrade at their No. 2 spot for 2017. Headed to free agency, Cassel is unlikely to be back.
Jan 1 - 5:46 PM

Derrick Henry rushed 15 times for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 17 win over the Texans.

The yards were the most of Henry's excellent rookie campaign. The 2015 Heisman Trophy winner finishes with 490 yards on 110 carries (4.45 YPC). He added 137 yards through the air, scoring five total touchdowns. The stats don't jump off the page, but it was an excellent, promising campaign behind bell-cow DeMarco Murray. Henry played up to his 6-foot-3, 247-pound frame, and was shiftier than should be possible at that size. He passed the "eye test" with flying colors. Murray is returning for 2017, but Henry has solidified himself as one of the top Dynasty-league running backs.
Jan 1 - 5:30 PM

DeMarco Murray rushed 11 times for 21 yards in the Titans' Week 17 win over the Texans.

It was a quiet end to what was a Comeback Player of the Year-caliber campaign. Murray finishes with 1,287 yards on the ground, 585 more than he posted as an Eagle. Murray tallied 1,664 yards from scrimmage, 12 total touchdowns and 4.39 yards per carry. He was gliding like he did as a Cowboy before suffering a mid-season toe injury. Murray confirmed after Week 17 that he was playing through a "torn plantar plate" in his foot. Derrick Henry is an ascendant player, but going on 29, Murray will be back as the Titans' No. 1 back in 2017. Henry's presence could make it difficult for Murray to match his 2016 numbers, however.
Jan 1 - 5:19 PM

Titans WR Kendall Wright is a healthy scratch for Week 17 against the Texans.

It's a fitting end to Wright's nightmare 2016. Headed for free agency, Wright isn't a part of the Titans' future after catching just 29 passes in 11 games this season. Also inactive for the Titans are CB Jason McCourty, DB Curtis Riley, OLB David Bass, OG Sebastian Tretola, TE Jace Amaro and DE Angelo Blackson.
Jan 1 - 11:33 AM

Titans RCB Jason McCourty (chest, shoulder) is questionable for Week 17.

McCourty looks on track to return after practicing the last two days. He’ll be a game-time decision against Houston.
