Tennessee Titans: Jackrabbit Jenkins confidence in Farley is growing
The reasons that shows like NFL Network’s Top 100 Players are so popular and the reasons why the Tennessee Titans can stick their chests out because they had five guys make the list (Derrick Henry at four, Julio Jones at 29, A.J. Brown at 62, Jeffrey Simmons at 78, and Ryan Tannehill at 83) are obvious.
Fans have opinions. The media has opinions, but there’s nothing like earning the respect of your peers. That’s often why guys play and play hard. There’s nothing like having the respect of the guys that you play across from and line up with.
Titans rookies Caleb Farley and Elijah Molden have to be grinning from ear to ear as they got a huge nod from the man who’s regarded by just about everyone as this team’s best cover guy.
The Tennessee Titans appear to be growing some comradery in that secondary.
Even before the Tennessee Titans added Farley and Molden in the most recent NFL Draft, they were relatively excited about what they had in the team’s cornerback room thanks to their addition of Jackrabbit Jenkins. He signed with the team on March 19th.
At the beginning of training camp, he said Farley looked ‘pretty good’. On the final day of August, in a quick chat with the media, it appeared that his confidence in Tennessee’s first-round draft choice has grown some as he discussed what he’s seen in terms of growth from the former Virginia Tech Hokie.
"You can tell by the way he’s practicing. Everything’s picking up. He’s not out there second-guessing himself. (He isn’t) doing too much thinking. He’s just going fast, and I think that’s a good stride for us."
Caleb Farley hasn’t played an entire season of football since he was in high school, but the belief is he’s fully healthy now that he’s getting over a recent back procedure. Jackrabbit was very complimentary about Elijah Molden as well.
"Great instincts… Plays fast. For him to be a little guy, he plays physically. I just like the way he approaches the game."
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel mentioned in his own conversation with the media on Tuesday that he’s excited about getting back to work as his ten-day quarantine is officially in the books. Tennessee sees the field again when they welcome the Arizona Cardinals to Nissan Stadium on September 12th for their first game on the 2021-2022 season.
Jackrabbit, Caleb Farley, and Elijah Molden will need to be at the top of their game for that one as Cards head coach Kliff Kingsbury will be bringing one of the most talented rosters in all of football to Nashville for that one.
