Tennessee Titans make two roster moves.
Vic Beasley‘s start in Tennessee has been as bad as I can remember any free agent, and he is still not on the Titans roster after today’s report.
It isn’t a monumental failure, but Beasley did fail his physical today and that means that he will go on the NFI list. Ultimately that may not mean much, but what it tells me is that wherever Beasley was, he wasn’t getting ready for the NFL season.
Presuming that there is no secret injury or anything, this basically tells everyone that Beasley didn’t communicate what he was doing with the Titans and he didn’t care enough to even stay in shape so that when he did return, he was ready to go.
That is weird, but Beasley has been a disappointment to this point so it isn’t that surprising. What is surprising is that the Titans made another move at EDGE today:
That’s right, Reggie Gilbert has been released by the team despite the Titans not getting any better at EDGE in the meantime.

So right now Tennessee is down to two EDGEs, one of which they cut after they already knew about the Vic Beasley news. Does that mean…is that Jadeveon Clowney‘s music?!
No. Well, not yet at least, but it is really strange to intentionally make yourself thinner at EDGE at this point in camp. Maybe there is another domino to fall here, but this is the first real sign we have seen that change is coming to the EDGE position before the season starts.
Reading between the lines, this may also be a positive thing for D’Andre Walker and Derick Roberson heading into camp. The two second-year players were going to be fighting with Gilbert for snaps in practice, but it looks like the Titans made that decision a little bit easier on themselves already.
I like Gilbert and think he can be a role player for another team in the NFL, but the sky is the limit when you talk about the upside that Roberson has and D’Andre Walker was graded as a top-50 prospect by most draft analysts before his injury limited his ability to workout.
Ultimately that injury cost Walker a season, but if he is back to normal then the Titans may be signaling that they have both young guys ready to go.
