Potentially game-changing news for the Titans.
A few months ago the future of sports in America was put on hold and the Tennessee Titans were just 1 of 32 teams that were left in limbo.
While things are far from set in stone, it looks like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just announced the start of their training camp. Most years that wouldn’t even register as interesting to Tennessee fans, but this year is different because we can use that date to project when the Titans will be back together.
In case you missed it, according to Pewter Report, Bruce Arians said that the Bucs would kick off camp on July 21st.
In 2019, the Bucs and the Titans both started training camp on the same day and based on the numbers that I (a complete layman who isn’t a trained epidemiologist) can’t see any reason why Florida’s health risks would be lower than Tennessee’s.
On top of that, the Bucs were also planning on practicing with the Titans in the preseason as part of a joint camp. While those have been canceled by the NFL, it does suggest that the Titans and the Bucs were on a similar schedule.
So is July 21st locked in?
Until we see Jim Wyatt report it or hear it from Mike Vrabel, Jon Robinson or Mike Keith, then I don’t think we can take anything as certain.
However, all signs point to the Titans opening up shop in the second half of July.
It stands to reason that the first week might be a rookie mini-camp built into the training camp schedule or maybe there will be some time set aside before July 21st for that to happen. The simple math makes sense though that you would go through some small version of an install and pseudo-OTAs while the rookies and free agents get adapted.

Last year’s training camp started on July 26th so the 21st would give the Titans that built-in week to go through what amounts to an orientation.
That means that we could still be more than a month away from a decision, though it is closer than the timeline we would have expected if COVID-19 had delayed the season or if the season had started on the same schedule as last year.
So keep an eye open on those flight records as we start to get towards the end of June and into early July because I assume that Clowney is going to make sure that every team does a physical on him so that he can try to get the most out of a potential deal.
