For the time being, the Tennessee Titans have a 90 man roster, but they will have to trim that down to 53 for the start of the season. In this article we’ll look at a few players who are on the bubble and may not make the cut. I will be excluding undrafted free agents because that’s a little obvious, but I will say we picked up a few this year I think could eventually become solid starters in the league, so let’s get this list started.
Justin was a second round pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the team actually traded up to get him. Tennessee fans loved the pick (myself included) to see a player from Knoxville move a few miles over to play in Nashville. In his rookie year he showed some real flashes, but over the next couple of years injuries caught up to him, and his production slowed down. In camp they made him wear a jersey labeled J.A.G which stood for just another guy, which in my mind had to hurt his confidence, and for an athlete when you lose your confidence you’ve lost everything.
Bishop was the first running back taken in the 2014 NFL draft, the Titans picked him up in the second round. I believe at this point in 2016 it’s safe to say he is a bust. He not only lost his starting job in 2015, he ended up sitting at number 3 on the depth chart behind Antonio Andrews and Dexter Mcluster. The Titans then tried to use him as a return man, but he failed at that as well.
Andrew was signed off the San Fansico 49ers practice squad last year after the Titans receiving corps was ravaged with injuries. He never really produced much in Titan’s blue. Now the team has a some what revamped group adding Rishad Matthews and other players coming off of injuries. He will be competing for a spot along with fellow receiver Justin Hunter.
Blidi was a third round pick for the Titans who has all the right measurables to be a great corner in the league, but for one reason or another it didn’t pan out. Their hope was to use him to replace Alteron Verner when he left in free agency, but that didn’t go as planned. In 2015 he even ended up playing behind undrafted free agents.
Anthony a tight end signed from the Kanas city chiefs, may find himself on the bubble this year. He’s a good veteran presence in the locker room, but he’s mostly only used to block, he’s aging, and he’s on a team with a lot of younger tight ends.
