Tennessee Titans wide receiver Cameron Batson
It’s too bad that team Most Valuable Player Awards aren’t given out during preseason competition because if they did, Cameron Batson would have to be someone that has to be considered as someone that’s in line for one.
An undrafted free agent in 2018, this former undrafted rookie out of the Texas Tech Red Raiders program made the 53-man roster at the end of camp but got waived, only to return to the Titans practice squad, get promoted to the active roster on October 10, and appear in 11 games with two starts. For his career, he’s tallied 20 receptions on 24 targets for 182 receiving yards and a touchdown.
Those numbers don’t include what he did in his only playoff appearance to date. Fear not though. You didn’t miss much in that one. He had one snag for six yards. He did reach the first-down marker on that one, so you still have to see that as good news.
Perhaps you’ve heard, but the Tennessee Titans look a whole heck of a lot better at the wide receiver position than they did at the end of March. They traded for Julio Jones. They added Dez Fitzpatrick in the most recent NFL Draft.
You have to see those three and A.J. Brown as locks to make the roster which means Batson is battling Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, perhaps the fifth guy on the depth chart, as well Kalija Lipscomb, Racey McMath, Chester Rogers, Cody Hollister, Marcus Johnson, Mason Kinsey, and Fred Brown for what might be two spots on the roster. Batson’s chances are aided b the fact that he’s a skilled returner, so that could help him some.
