Questions abound as the Tennessee Titans approach training camp.

We aren’t quite there yet, but we’re getting pretty doggone close. The close of a three-day session of Tennessee Titans minicamp means their training camp and, eventually, their 2021-2022 season are a lot closer than they were when OTAs started. That’s a good thing if you’re a fan of the two-tone blue.

This team can’t get much better than they already are on offense. The Titans already had an impressive mix of both veteran and young talent, and then they went out and got a future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Julio Jones, to complement one of the best young receivers in the game (A.J. Brown).

They’re steady at quarterback with a more than capable Ryan Tannehill. They have the NFL’s best running back (just in case you haven’t heard) in Derrick Henry, but we all knew that they had to be better on defense. They’ve made adjustments, bringing in guys like Bud Dupree, Deneco Autry, and Janoris “Jackrabbit” Jenkins. They’ve added some studs in the draft.

The question is have they done enough to get to football’s biggest game and win it? We’re a long way from knowing the answer to that. Heck, they haven’t even finalized a 53-man roster yet, but we do know that there are questions that are on everyone’s mind. Here are three of the biggest about this team’s defense as we near August and another training camp.
