Minicamp wraps for the Tennessee Titans, and the good news is there are no major injuries to report. Everyone walked in and walked out healthy. There was some talk about Taylor Lewan and his recovery from his recent ACL injury, but from the looks of things, he’s going to be okay and is pretty pumped about the upcoming season.

Oh, and we also mentioned bad news, so here it is. fans of the two-tone blue aren’t going to see their beloved Titans running around on the grass at Saint Thomas Sports Park until training camp begins.

With everything that’s going on (NBA Playoffs, MLB games, Juneteenth, Fathers’ Day), it’s pretty easy to miss a few things, and here’s something that you might find interesting as minicamp wraps. Tennessee has shuffled the roster again. Let’s chew on that for a few ticks.

Here are three things to know as Tennessee Titans add Kevin Peterson.

1. Okay, who is this guy?

Tennessee announced after closing minicamp that they were adding another prospect to the training camp roster. His name is Kevin Peterson, a five-foot-eleven and 185-pound defensive back who previously cut his teeth with the Los Angeles Rams and, most recently, the Arizona Cardinals.

Take a look:

2. Let’s talk about some numbers.

Here’s a young man who has some NFL experience but is also still relatively wet behind the years. In three seasons (2017, 2019, 2020) and 32 regular-season games with five starts, he’s racked up 39 total tackles, two interceptions, nine pass breakups, and two fumble recoveries.

More. Every Titans 2021 draftee’s ceiling this season. light

3. One arrives. Another departs.

Naturally, Peterson’s arrival means someone has to go. To make room on what, in all likelihood, will be their training camp roster, the Tennessee Titans said goodbye to EDGE prospect Justus Reed. Peterson will have a tough climb to make the roster, but he’ll be someone who’s interesting to watch as we move through August.
