Sleepers to make the Titans.
Cut down day is a roller coaster for the fans, players and the team, but this year is unique for the Tennessee Titans and the NFL.
This year between the abbreviated training camp and offseason schedule, we know even less about which players the coaching staff likes than ever before.
With confusion and mystery comes surprises, and we have already seen that play out with the early rounds of cuts teams have made. Earlier the Washington Football Team released Adrian Peterson despite his relatively low cost.
That was huge considering that they already cut ties with Darius Guice and now have two young players in Bryce Love and Antonio Gibson who combined for just eight (8!) rushes in 2019.
Throw in names like Leonard Fournette who got cut because the Jacksonville Jaguars are tanki- I mean because they wanted to cut costs. And veterans who haven’t been able to prove that they are clearly worth more than the rookies drafted to replace them, and the NFL landscape is about to change a lot more than we think.
Trade can and will still happen, and this is the time of year where GMs with stacked rosters add a lot of late-round picks or GMs who need depth spend their late-round picks on contributors. History decided who is savvy and who got taken for a ride (even though the picks rarely matter that much), but the point is that there will be a lot of moving parts.
The biggest wild card in everything is the new practice squad rules though.
