Tennessee Titans: First Down And Tenn – 4/26 Edition


With only four days and 14 hours left until the 2015 NFL Draft, fans in Music City can only hope the Tennessee Titans “War Room” is ready. Let’s take a look and see what others have been saying about the Titans this week.

2015 NFL Mock Draft: 1st-Round Projections and Riskiest Prospects – Justin Hussong Bleacher Report.

"Whatever happens with the reigning Heisman Trophy winner will surely dictate the tempo of the entire first round. In a way, this draft doesn’t even begin until after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers likely select JameisWinston first.The Tennessee Titans have orchestrated a feeding frenzy with their No. 2 pick. Of course, the big rumor is he will wind up with the San Diego Chargers in exchange for Philip Rivers, but you shouldn’t believe that for one second."

Philip Rivers to Tennessee Titans? GMs debunk senseless rumor – Adam Schein NFL.com

"So let me get this straight … A team that has visions of winning double-digit games and making the playoffs is going to trade its quarterback to a rebuilding team for the second overall pick?If the San Diego Chargers deal Rivers, presumably to get Marcus Mariota, they aren’t a playoff team. And I have major questions about their future. If the Tennessee Titans get Rivers, they aren’t a playoff team, either. Not even close. And they will have even more major questions for the future."

Titans offense pre-draft analysis: Impact, depth needed – Jim Wyatt The Tennesseean

"The Titans used free agency to repair the defense. It’s time to address the offense in the NFL draft.They have seven picks, including second overall.Here’s a look at the offense going into the draft, which starts Thursday."

Philadelphia Eagles: To Trade or Not to Trade – NFL Spin Zone Andrew Goldwasser

"Unfortunately for the Eagles, at the bargaining table, they hold no leverage. The Tennessee Titans pick second and they are free to put anything they’d like out into the world. They don’t need to want Mariota. They just need to convince a team, like the Eagles, that they do. Or that they’re getting calls from others who do.For the sake of argument (and simplicity) let’s say that the Eagles believe they need to get all the way up to #2 to pick Mariota next week."

5 Teams That Could Target Titans’ No. 2 Overall Pick – Marc Macaluso ProFootball Spot

"Cleveland Browns – The Browns drafted a quarterback with their second first-round draft pick last year. That hasn’t worked out as planned for the Browns thus far. Quarterback Johnny Manziel has spent most of 2015 in rehab, and newly acquired Josh McCown has been a career journeyman.The Browns again hold two first-round picks this year, No. 12 and No. 19, which could be good trade fodder for the Titans. Would the Browns really give up on Manziel and mortgage the future after one year? If so, they’re a prime candidate to trade up."

Saturday Titans mailbag: Money, Shonn Greene and Andy Levitre Paul Kuharsky ESPN.com

"Paul Kuharsky:Shonn Greene is due $3.25 million this year and would leave behind only $833,000 in dead money. There is no reason to do anything now. If he plays as he has in camp, and Antonio Andrews shows well, I think Andrews will win the spot and the Titans will cut Greene. Levitre is due a $6.5 million base, which is way high for how he has performed, for sure. But he has $6.3 million of his signing bonuses left to be prorated over three more years. So keep him and it costs $6.3 million in cash and $8.6 million in cap dollars. Cut him and you save the base salary of $6.5 million, but only save $2.3 million cap dollars. Ideally you’d pay less. But before you have a legitimate alternative, it’s difficult to make that approach."
