If you’re a Tennessee Titans fan, you have to give this team tons of credit. They’ve literally left no stone uncovered when it comes to finding talent and evaluating each prospect to determine whether or not they’d fit in the team’s culture.
Each veteran acquisition, draftee, and undrafted free agent has been dissected to determine if they’d be a valuable asset to help in what should be a season-long campaign to a second consecutive division title and, hopefully, a deep playoff run that lands the Titans in Los Angeles for a game at SoFi Stadium come February.
Over the course of the weekend, they invited four additional first-timers to rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. Let’s dig into that a little further for those of you who may be unaware of what happened.
Here are four prospects that Tennessee Titans fans should see as interesting.
Former Vanderbilt Commodores wide receiver Kalija Lipscomb may have been the most recognizable name on a list of four more rookies. Here’s who they are as well as thoughts on each.
Kalija Lipscomb, wide receiver, Vandy:
Again, this may be the most recognizable of the four names on this list. An undrafted free agent in 2020, Kalija Lipscomb spent time on both the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers rosters, but it hasn’t lead to anything as so far, he hasn’t gotten any traction going.
Otis Anderson, running back, UCF:
Sure, as soon as you hear the name Otis Anderson, you think about the former New York Giants running back, but that isn’t who we’re speaking of. This one’s a tad younger, shorter, and smaller.
At five-foot-eleven and 174 pounds, this former UCF tailback ran for 2,182 yards (the ninth-highest total in school history). He also has 26 total touchdowns, rushing and receiving on his collegiate resume. He’s an all-purpose guy that could also help on special teams as a returner.
Josh Nurse, cornerback, Utah:
Josh Nurse appeared in 17 games and tallied 27 total tackles, six pass breakups, and a forced fumble while at Utah. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens after going undrafted in 2020 and eventually wound up on the Jacksonville Jaguars roster.
There, he appeared in two games and played 20 special teams snaps. He’s going to have an uphill climb to make any NFL roster be that the Tennessee Titans roster or anyone else’s.
Brady White, quarterback, Memphis:
In short, Brady White may not be someone who’s going to push any of the better backups in the league for the second spot on the depth chart. He may not even be a third-stringer at this point.
What he is, however, at minimum, is someone that should be at an NFL team’s training camp down the road as he deserves a spot on an NFL practice squad. He threw for over 10,000 yards and 90 touchdowns in 39 games at Memphis after transferring from Arizona State.
