Tennessee Titans make pair of innocuous roster moves
The Tennessee Titans roster is constantly in a state of change.
The Tennessee Titans have had a busy offseason. They cut some veterans, re-signed some key pieces, and brought in new free agents that will make an impact immediately. Lost in all of big-time moves are always futures signings and movement of young players that gets swept under the rug.
With rookie mini camp in the past, the Titans are setting up their roster to get through the summer and see if anything sticks that they weren’t expecting to. Just a week ago, they waived nose tackle Roderick Henderson, who many of us believed had a chance to make the team. It goes to show that we don’t have much of an idea of what Jon Robinson and Mike Mularkey actually think of their players. Henderson could’ve showed up out of shape or with an attitude problem. Or he could’ve just not performed well during the mini camp.
Yesterday, the Titans made a pair of roster moves that many fans will just classify as “indifferent”. Regardless of whether it will matter at all in time, it’s a good representation that Robinson is working constantly. The roster is never set, and it never will be, as we saw the team cut Perrish Cox (who was starting) during the regular season.

The moves made yesterday were two additions and a waiving.
Wide receiver K.J. Maye was waived after being signed to the Titans’ practice squad in late December of last year and signing a futures contract in early January of this year. Maye went undrafted out of Minnesota in 2016, but signed with the New York Giants and was subsequently waived before the season began. Maye was never really all that productive in college, but caught 73 balls for 773 yards his senior season.
The Titans added another receiver to offset Maye’s departure. They signed Darius Jennings, who has NFL experience. Jennings went undrafted out of Virginia in 2015 and signed with the Cleveland Browns. While there, he played in four games during his rookie season and caught 14 passes for 117 yards. Jennings has bounced around practice squads over the last two years, and now finds himself on a team with a logjam at wide receiver. At 5’10” and 169 lbs., he’ll have to show out in the return game to have a chance at sticking.
Their other addition was Joe Bacci, a traditional fullback out of Central Michigan. Bacci flashed some receiving skills in college, catching 24 passes and four touchdowns over his final two seasons. Bacci is likely nothing more than Jalston Fowler insurance.
