Titans DL Jurrell Casey a major snub on #NFLRank

Jurrell Casey should be ranked among the NFL's top 100 payers. But he's a victim of being on a team that's won five games in the last two years.

Titans TE Stevens retires after eight seasons

Titans tight end Craig Stevens has retired, with his agent saying the eight-year veteran is "ready to go on with the next part of his life."

Paul Kuharsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Mularkey said last year's third-round pick, Jeremiah Poutasi, would have to play better for the team to even consider him for a starting role. He never seemed in it, but he's certainly not the left guard. He's backing up right guard Chance Warmack. And depending on the time the team is willing to give him to develop, he could be looking for a new team after cuts.

Rating Titans' depth by position

Thanks to some subtle personnel moves, the Titans should hold up better this season if they face a rash of injuries like they did last fall.

Paul Kuharsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Mularkey hasn't said Andre Johnson will be on the 53-man roster. But given this quote, I'm feeling pretty certain Johnson is on the 2016 Titans: "He doesn't have to do anything more for me to know he can play."

Preseason leaders: Rushing yards

The Titans' "Thunder and Thunder" duo of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry has impressed so far, but they trail Rams back Malcolm Brown. George Atkinson III and Christine Michael aren't too far behind.

Paul Kuharsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Pro Football Focus says Titans CB Antwon Blake gave up six catches on six targets for 113 yards (via John Glennon) . Mike Mularkey on Blake: "Antwon has a role here Probably not the starting corner against starting receivers. I'd like him to make that tackle. I mean any corner's got to make that tackle. But there are other things he's done pretty well. That first game, he made a lot of plays out there, really good plays. He had a really bad series... He'll rebound from that."
