Titans defense scores win on first day of minicamp

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The defense won the day as the Tennessee Titans started their minicamp, which meant the offense didn’t meet Mike Mularkey’s standards.

“I was a little disappointed, the offense had too many mistakes,” Mularkey said. “We only had three penalties, but they were all on the offense and too many times the ball was being stripped by the defense. I felt good in reverse. The defense was on top of things, great communication, great execution, great with the turnovers, very disciplined, no mistakes, so credit to them.”

Some members of the defense joked with a reporter as they walked back into the building that there were no stories out there and when Mularkey’s comments were conveyed they repeated it.

They know people like offense and want to hear most about Marcus Mariota and Derrick Henry and Corey Davis (who had an excellent day and looks very sharp with post-ankle surgery limitations removed.)

New veteran cornerback Logan Ryan is pleased with the direction the defense is heading.
