It’s been a little longer than this, but it seems like the Tennessee Titans just adjusted the roster a few hours ago. They’ve been busy since the most recent NFL Draft as they signed wide receiver Fred Brown on the selection meeting’s first day before adding running back Brian Hill on its second.
Shortly after the draft’s close, they agreed to terms with Hill as well as linebacker Justin March-Lillard and defensive back Greg Mabin. Cornerback Kareem Orr was waived in a subsequent move. That brought us to Cinco de Mayo, and they waived tight end Parker Hesse, long snapper Matt Orzech, and linebacker Nate Orchard.
Now, they’ve apparently agreed to terms with another cornerback just under a week after adding him. His name is Quenton Meeks. You’re really going to like this guy.
Here are three fun facts on the newest member of the Tennessee Titans.
Here’s a little something-something to whet the whistles the Tennessee Titans get ready to learn what dates their games fall on and how the 2021 campaign will look (at the time of this story being published, the MFL schedule release is a little over 12 hours away).
1. There’s nothing like a little buzz to get the juices flowing.
Meeks went undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft after earning a Second-team All-Pac-12 nod in his final season at the collegiate level. He was added by one of the Titans’ rivals, the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he immediately became a social media darling.
There’s nothing like landing a guy that probably should have been drafted and doing so after the curtain closes on the selection meeting.
2. Talk about a football IQ (or just IQs in general).
Despite his love for football, this guy can truly be doing whatever he wants. Stanford guys don’t grow on trees, and this is one of them.
If you think football IQs are important, try hanging out at one of the country’s great institutions for higher learning and majoring in something much of the general public can’t pronounce or knows nothing about.
3. Let’s talk about numbers.
In three seasons (36 games) at the collegiate level, Meeks tallied 115 total tackles, seven interceptions, and 17 pass breakups. He’s been a bit of a journeyman in the NFL, already seeing his third locker room since entering the league, but with proper coaching, the Titans may have something here.
He currently has eight total tackles in 14 career games as a professional. That isn’t much to write home about, and the chances of him making this Tennessee Tittans roster are slim. Still, it’s going to be interesting to see how he develops in training camp. Put an asterisk by his name.
