Tennessee Titans cornerbacks

Active Roster: Jackrabbit Jenkins, Kristian Fulton, Elijah Molden, Caleb Farley, Breon Borders, Chris Jackson, Chris Jones

Practice Squad: Jamal Carter, Brien Boddy Calhoun

COVID-19 List (as of September 2nd): None

It was a little stunning to see the Titans keep this many cornerbacks, but with so many other special teams players on the shelf due to COVID, they had to make sure they had guys who could cover kicks if it came down to it.

The biggest surprise of all of the roster cuts was when Chris Jones made the team, but if you watched the preseason games Jones consistently made plays and was in a great position in coverage. I don’t expect him to start at any point in 2021, but he would have been on someone else’s roster or practice squad if he was let go.

People still have doubts about the talent at the top of this group, but they are wrong. Jenkins has been a leader on the field and in the classroom, since the Titans signed him, Fulton has looked exactly like the player that was advertised when Tennessee drafted him in the second round, and the rookie duo of Elijah Molden and Caleb Farley will probably be two of the best rookie DBs in the NFL this season.
