Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots joint practice gets heated on day 2
By Will Lomas
Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots turn up the heat in training camp.
Death, Taxes and Tennessee Titans fights in training camp, there are some things in life that you can just count on.
What better what for A.J. Brown to start his first week of practices than by winning his 1-on-1 matchups, burning defenders deep and then squaring up with the other team’s best defender?
The Titans have always had a coach at the helm who want them to skirt the fine line between aggression and dirty, and HC Mike Vrabel is no different. Obviously the goal of camp is to stay healthy and to be smart, but this team needs passion.
Much has been made about the loss of attitude and energy that the Titans will lose during Taylor Lewan‘s suspension to start the season. Someone needs to step up and bring that passion with them on the field.

Guys like Derrick Henry, Corey Davis and Delanie Walker might be those guys, but that role is still very much open and maybe A.J. Brown’s natural charisma and attitude are the perfect fit for that.
I should say, I don’t condone fighting and no one should hurt and all of those other platitudes that I have to say so that you don’t think I am just supporting violence for violence’s sake.
However, if guys want to push and shove and assert themselves on the field then do it.
The New England Patriots are what the Tennessee Titans want to be. A team that went from forgotten seasons and the occasional near miss at a Super Bowl title, to a perennial super power that destroys other teams with great defense and systemic quarterback play.
To do that, you need attitude and confidence and that is undoubtedly what the Titans saw in A.J. Brown and it is why guys like Taylor Lewan, Jurrell Casey, Delanie Walker, and Kevin Byard have gotten big deals from this front office.
As long as everyone stays healthy, you can let your hands do the talking for you after you win a matchup just follow the two most important rules:
1. Never take your helmet off
2. Never punch a helmet.
