2 Questions Tennessee Titans 1st 53-man roster answered about the offense

The Tennessee Titans are loaded with stars at just about every important position, and they could have a budding star at the tight end position in Anthony Firkser, but the team’s success, as a whole, could depend on how these depth pieces produce.

1. Are we to gather the Titans will, indeed, keep two quarterbacks?

The Titans’ initial 53-man roster carries two quarterbacks. Their starter, Ryan Tannehill, is on the team’s Reserve/COVID-19 list along with running back Jeremy McNichols, center Ben Jones, right guard Nate Davis, wide receiver Racey McMath, tight end Geoff Swaim, and three linebackers: Harold Landry, Nick Dzubnar, and Justin March-Lillard.

Obviously, Tannehill hasn’t lost his job, but it appears that the Titans are content with keeping two signal-callers on the roster. The race for the backup quarterback job appeared to be even heading into the final week of the preseason, and Logan Woodside outplayed Matt Barkley in the finale.

Will the Titans value Woodside more and keep him? It appears that they’ve decided they don’t want to use a third roster spot for the position.

2. Mekhi Sargent could be knocked out of the Week 1 lineup versus Arizona Cardinals.

Mekhi Sargent is on the roster, for now. Tennessee, as expected, kept four running backs (or three running backs and a fullback if we’re being technical). Jeremy McNichols, who this team is very fond of, is on the COVID-19 list. Keep an eye on him as he could bump Sargent from the lineup once he’s able to go.
