Titans 53-man roster projection.
With final cuts just a few days away, the Tennessee Titans have a few important decisions to make.
NFL teams have until Saturday, September 5th to cut their rosters down to the 53-player maximum. Now, cutdown day is always interesting, but the 2020 version of cutdown day is even more intriguing.
With no preseason and a shorter offseason period in general, teams haven’t had as many looks at their guys as they normally would.
This could lead to many teams playing it safe, and not many UDFA’s will be getting chances this season. Fortunately for the Titans, their roster was already set in stone in many key areas.
This isn’t to say there won’t be some interesting decisions made. Backup RB, edge rusher, defensive line, and wide receiver are all areas to watch for Titans fans. I took a shot at projecting the final roster for the Titans about a month ago, and quite a lot has changed since then.
For example, when I did my first final roster projection, Trevor Siemian was still a free agent, and Cole McDonald was still vying for the backup QB spot. Another change is the addition of kicker Stephen Gostkowski who will presumably win the kicking job. Recent running back addition Jeremy McNichols looks like a key candidate to force himself onto the final roster as well.
With that being said, let’s take a look at what’s changed in the past month or so.
