Guys taking advantage of their chance.
To finish up, I wanted to cover some of the guys who have done well in camp to this point. The guys I am focused on most isn’t the clear starters, it is the guys behind them pushing for time and roster spots.
Tajae Sharpe, WR
By all accounts Sharpe is the WR4 on this offense and Mike Vrabel praised him for many things after practice today including his “versatility”, it may not seem big, but that is really important.
If the Titans think that Sharpe can play outside or inside, it gives him the advantage on guys like Darius Jennings, Taywan Taylor and Cam Batson for that 4th spot. If you can’t thrive on special teams as a receiver then you either need to be dominant at something or be able to do a little bit of everything.
So far, it seems like Sharpe may be a jack-of-all-trades and earn both a spot and significant playing time on this roster.
Anthony Firkser, TE
Firkser got a lot of reps today with Delanie Walker taking a maintenance day, but today wasn’t his only good day. It is a, “Robinson is watching Firkser” here and a “Another TD for Firkser” there until you end up with clips like these:
The guy can play ball and someone is going to “Jack Doyle” the Tennessee Titans all over again if they let him go. This is a guy the Titans really need to find a place for on the roster.

Sharif Finch, EDGE
Finch has been starting at EDGE despite being a little banged up and I have always supported the idea of him getting real playing time.
Last year, Finch quietly went under the radar but he was truly one of the Titans better front seven players down the stretch. Towards the end of the season he was causing and recovering fumbles and winning at both off ball linebacker and on the EDGE.
Long term I think he clearly needs to settle into an EDGE role, but having all that athleticism never hurt anyone.
Brent Urban, DL
I don’t know whether it is his massive size, the fact that he is going against backups or just his actual ability as a player, but Urban had looked good.
He has the size and versatility to move around the defensive line and if he keeps flashing on film it is going to make him some money this season and beyond. Dean Pees knows him well and if he can prove to be an upgrade on DaQuan Jones and Austin Johnson it will help the defense as a whole and make some decisions this offseason clearer.
If not, then he may still find a place on the 53-man roster and he will help push those other guys to be better.
