There’s no shortage of storylines on the Tennessee Titans’ defense.

3. Okay, can Bud Dupree play or not?

Much has been made about the question of whether Bud Dupree is worth the five-year, $82.5 million contract the Tennessee Titans have given him. Fans and the media have both asked if he’s good or if he was good in Pittsburgh because he shared the field with T.J. Watt.

The facts are as follows. Dupree produced with Watt and before he got to Pittsburgh. Titans fans will have to wait to see him on the field. He was on the team’s PUP (physically unable to perform list) before TennesseeTitans.com Senior Writer and Editor Jim Wyatt reported that he had been added to the team’s COVID-19 list on July 29th.

Once he’s back, the journey back to his return continues. Still, if he’s back for Week 1 of the regular season or prior to that, it would be very surprising.

4. Was Caleb Farley the right choice or not?

Tennessee’s first-round selection in the most recent NFL Draft, Caleb Farley, is currently on the Titans’ Active/Non-Football Injury list. Back injuries are tough though, and none of us would be wrong if we expressed concern about what he might look like when he is ready to play.

The most important question is the same one we asked about Bud Dupree. When will he return?

Trending. Sleepers who are already making noise. light

5. Can any of these young guys step up on defense and offense?

The Tennessee Titans didn’t get much out of their 2020 NFL Draft class. They’ll have to bounce back. That isn’t all though. The 2021 class will be asked to produce early.

This team has some solid veteran leadership, but if the Titans truly want to be special, these young guys will need to step up. The question is will they step up?
