Tennessee Titans defensive back Dane Cruikshank

Somewhere, Dane Cruikshank has to be sweating. Since August 11th, the Tennessee Titans have juggled their roster quite a bit.

They agreed to terms with tight end Gabe Holmes on August 11th but waived him in a subsequent move after adding Deon Yelder on August 15th (and then they waived Yelder). Safeties Tedric Thompson and Reggie Floyd were added a day later.

Things change very quickly in the NFL though. Floyd was released by the Titans four days after they signed him, and Tedric Thompson was both placed on the team’s IR (Injured Reserve) as well.

What did Tennessee do? On August 16th, they added two more safeties, Clayton Geathers and Bradley McDougald, before Tennessee announced the addition of linebacker Nick Dzubnar a few hours later. On Tuesday, August 17th, defensive lineman Trevon Coley was also placed on the team’s IR (Injured Reserve).

Did you catch that? Are you paying attention? The Titans are obviously in search of a safety. None of this is a coincidence. None of this is being done for no reason, and to make long stories short, as stated earlier, Dane Cruikshank has to be nervous. The same can be said about Brady Breeze. None of the recent roster additions at safety can be seen as good news for either of them.
