Tennessee Titans roster projections (offense)

Quarterbacks (2): Ryan Tannehill, Logan Woodside

If this was truly a competition between Logan Woodside and Matt Barkley for the Tennessee Titans backup quarterback position, things were about even for the first two games, and then, Woodside outplayed Matt Barkley in the finale. He deserves the roster spot as we expect the Titans to carry two signal-callers

Running backs (4): Derrick Henry, Darrynton Evans, Khari Blasingame, Mekhi Sargent

Did you see that run by Khari Blasingame on that screen pass versus the Bears? The fullback position is back baby! Mekhi Sargent has proven for a month that he deserves a job.

Wide receivers (7): Julio Jones, A.J. Brown, Josh Reynolds, Mason Kinsey, Chester Rogers, Dez Fitzpatrick, Marcus Johnson

Rookie Dez Fitzpatrick isn’t one of the Tennessee Titans six best wide receivers, at least not right now. He makes the roster as putting him on the practice squad would be a dangerous move (and one that allows another team to steal him), but it also ties up a roster spot Tennessee could have used for something else.

Tight ends (3): Anthony Firkser, Geoff Swaim, Tommy Hudson

We’ve seen the Titans keep four tight ends in years past. This time, they go with three to create an additional roster spot they’ll need on defense.

Offensive line (9): Taylor Lewan, Rodger Saffold, Ben Jones, Nate Davis, Ty Sambrailo, Dillon Radunz, Aaron Brewer, David Quessenberry, Kendall Lamm

This unit looks pretty solid with one of the best starting units in the game and a nice mix of reserve guys.
