The Tennessee Titans have until Tuesday at 4 p.m. to trim their roster to 53 men.

Three preseason games have wrapped for the Tennessee Titans. All that’s left is to put their final 53-man roster together. They have until 4 p.m. EST on Tuesday, August 31st to do so.

2021 has taught us a lot. It’s also given us new stars to cheer for like Mekhi Sargent (potentially) and Elijah Molden. This has normally been where the Titans have had to comb the waiver wire for a few prospects to fill a few remaining holes after trimming their roster, but Tennessee is loaded this time around.

They’re so loaded that they enter the next few hours knowing that they’ll, no doubt, have to make some tough decisions and say goodbye to some very talented players. That won’t be the situation, in every case, because some of those guys can’t play. It will be because there’s a phrase that we often use around this time of the year. ‘It’s a numbers game’.

The Titans simply can’t take everybody into the season with them. They have a 53-man active roster and a 16-man practice squad to play around with. Here’s what they might possibly look like when final cuts are done and in the books.
