The Titans elected to hold on to just two true running backs, Derrick Henry and Darrynton Evans, with tweener Khari Blasingame – who is more of a fullback/tight end hybrid – complementing them. Jeremy McNichols, who spent all of the offseason with the Titans last year and was brought in once again just a few weeks ago, was waived. McNichols being cut signals that Evans is healthy and that the coaching staff has confidence in him despite some fumbling issues popping up in practice, but Vrabel and co. are putting a lot on the table for a rookie.
Score one for all of the Logan Woodside fans out there, if there are any. The Toledo product made the roster despite negative reviews about his performance in camp. But it doesn’t stop there; the Titans also released Trevor Siemian. Siemian clearly didn’t make a great impression in his short period with the team, and now the Titans would have a serious problem on their hands if Ryan Tannehill were to get injured at any point. The Titans will surely be eyeing other teams’ cuts in order to improve the backup quarterback position, with a newly released Josh Rosen possibly at the top of the list.
