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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey reiterated on Tuesday that DeMarco Murray remains the team's "workhorse."

Mularkey said the same thing last month. It stands to reason that sophomore Derrick Henry will get more opportunities following an impressive rookie campaign, but at least to begin the year, the Titans will attempt to maintain the status quo. Headed into his age-29 season, Murray faded down the stretch in 2016.

In an interview with KHON2 Honolulu, Marcus Mariota (broken leg) was shown walking normally and running on the beach.

Forced to use a scooter to get around just a month ago, Mariota seems to be progressing quickly in his recovery from a broken fibula. "This process has been really good," Mariota said. "I’m in a good spot." The Titans are going to take it slow with their franchise quarterback, but he will likely be ready for training camp.

Titans signed OL Tim Lelito, formerly of the Saints.

It's a nice addition to an already stacked offensive line. Lelito made just seven spot starts last year, but adds depth and is a strong presence in the run game. He should back up at multiple spots.
Mar 22 - 4:20 PM

Free agent OL Tim Lelito is visiting the Titans on Wednesday.

Lelito previously visited the Lions. He has experience at center, guard, and tackle and would be a capable starter in a pinch. Lelito started 13 games at left guard in 2015, receiving really strong marks for his run blocking from Pro Football Focus. It's somewhat surprising the 26-year-old hasn't drawn more looks.
Mar 22 - 9:17 AM

Titans signed ILB Wesley Woodyard to a two-year extension through 2019.

The restructure lowers Woodyard's base salary to $2.2 million this season. Woodyard started 10 games last year but is no longer a full-time player. The extension won't stop the Titans from upgrading on him in the draft.
Mar 15 - 5:44 PM

Free agent G/C Tim Lelito is visiting the Lions on Wednesday.

A 13-game starter at left guard in 2015, Lelito was sent back to the bench last season, making just seven spot starts. He has position versatility, as Lelito played left guard, right tackle, and center last year. In 2015, Lelito was Pro Football Focus' No. 7-ranked run-blocking guard out of 82 qualifiers.

According to PFT's Mike Florio, the Titans offered to swap first-round picks -- No. 5 for No. 11 -- and a third-round pick to the Saints in exchange for Brandin Cooks.

Appearing on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville on Monday, Titans GM Jon Robinson revealed he never offered the No. 18 pick for Cooks, the second of two first-rounders the Titans own. The No. 5 selection is via the Rams. If Tennessee truly offered a swap of first-rounders that high in the draft in addition to a three, it's surprising New Orleans didn't bite at that proposal over the Patriots' No. 32 pick and a third it ultimately accepted in exchange for Cooks last Friday. This would indicate the Titans remain in the market for a playmaking outside receiver.
Mar 14 - 2:54 AM

Titans signed NT Sylvester Williams, formerly of the Broncos, to a three-year contract.

The 28-year-old has three years of starting experience, but was a liability against the run last season. Williams gets a fresh start in Tennessee, where he'll compete with Austin Johnson to replace Al Woods at nose tackle
Mar 10 - 9:19 PM

Titans re-signed TE Phillip Supernaw.

27-year-old Supernaw logged over 300 offensive snaps and played special teams for last year's Titans. He will likely see less time on offense this season.
