Loser: Tyjae Spears

Going into the offseason, many would have thought the Titans were going to move on from Derrick Henry and straight into the Tyjae Spears era. After all, Spears showed an ability to be a real playmaker at times during his rookie season, last year.

The third-round pick out of Tulane totaled over 800 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns in his first season as a pro. The speed and shiftiness allowed Tennessee's offense to have a nice change-of-pace type back alongside Henry. However, the Titans signed Tony Pollard in free agency, and the money given to Pollard signals that he is now the starter.

Spears will have to continue waiting and earning his opportunity.

Winner: Arden Key, OLB

On his fourth team since coming out in the 2018 NFL Draft, pass rusher Arden Key is a guy who very well could have been replaced this offseason. Last year, he totaled a modest 6.0 sacks alongside Harold Landry. Tennessee wouldn't have been given any criticism had they taken a pass rusher early in the draft this year, or had they gone out and signed a top veteran in free agency.

But, as it stands, Key is still the starter, and he should feel great about the Titans' offseason moves. It shows the team's faith in him, coming into his second season with the Titans.
