Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans …
Marc Mariani took the Titans' decision to put him on IR pretty well, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. “…[They] felt like this was best and I don’t think they are trying to pull any fast ones. I think they are doing what’s best for the team and for me. So it’s tough to argue.”
To which I say: I think the Titans actually preferred him to Darius Reynaud as their return man, but even a couple weeks of uncertainty made it too hard for them to keep him. I think they could have managed.
Cutting Fernando Velasco saved the Titans money and gave the starting job to Rob Turner, a nastier player, says Wyatt.

The defensive tackle depth is excellent. But drops and missed tackles are two things the Titans need to improve on from last year, says Michael Renner of Pro Football Focus.
