At least 2 Tennessee Titans will make NFLN’s top 100 players of 2019 list
At least two Tennessee Titans players will make NFL Network’s top 100 players of 2019 list.
The Tennessee Titans will have at least two representatives from the team on the NFL Network’s top 100 players of 2019 list.
NFL Network will begin their countdown on Monday night at 8 p.m. CT, revealing No.’s 100 through 91. The network will continue from there with more episodes to eventually finish off the countdown.
According to ESPN’s Turron Davenport, two Titans players will fall in that range from 100 to 91, although we only have clues as to who it will actually be:
Davenport went on to clarify that this doesn’t mean only two Titans players will make the list in total, so there could—and should—be more.
Sadly, Davenport can’t reveal who those two players will be, but at least we have confirmation that there will be Titans on the list.
The question is: who exactly could it be in that initial range? If you want to wait and watch to find out for yourself, don’t read past this point.
Warning: Potential spoilers
Well, as Davenport points out, one of the players is making their first appearance on the list.
If I had to put my money on it, I’d go with linebacker Jayon Brown, who had a breakout year in 2018. You can certainly also make the case for running back Derrick Henry, who finished off last season with 585 yards and seven touchdowns in his last four games.
As for the player making their fourth appearance, defensive lineman Jurrell Casey has made the list three times (2015, ’17 and ’18) during his career, but so has tight end Delanie Walker (2016, ’17 and ’18).
Considering Walker is coming off a season in which he missed all but one game, it’s safe to assume Casey will be the player making his fourth appearance.
Walker will probably get knocked off the list altogether for the first time in three years, as the football world is down on him because of his age (35 in August) and his coming off a serious injury.
We still think he’s the bees knees, though, and so does Patrick Willis.
Two more players we’d expect to see somewhere on this list are safety Kevin Byard and left tackle Taylor Lewan. Both players are two of the very best at their respective positions in the NFL to say the least. If Lewan and Byard don’t make it, we riot.
Kidding, of course, but we’ll be really, really mad.
