Titans should play faster in Year 2 of 3-4

Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans…

Marcus Mariota led the Titans offense to a bounce back Tuesday and Wednesday after a poor day on Monday, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

As he re-joined the Titans, center Fernando Velasco noticed a lot more energy around the team, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.

The Titans kick returner will come from among Jacoby Ford, Antonio Andrews and Dexter McCluster, says Glennon.

To which I say: McCluster is the only one who’s a roster certainty, I think, and he need to make himself indispensable as the punt returner and kick returner.

The Titans expect year 2 of the 3-4 defense to feature must faster play, says Teresa Walker of the AP. "A lot of guys are flying around out there," defensive lineman Jurrell Casey said. "They know their assignments."

Both former Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and current Titans defensive coordinator Ray Horton make Tier 2 of Peter King’s list of prospective NFL head coaches.

Casey chatted with The Midday 180 in Nashville. I wasn't part of it, as I was working the locker room at the time.

The Titans selection of Mariota with the No. 2 pick in the draft ranks as the 12th-best offseason move in the NFL, according to Sean Tomlinson of Bleacher Report.
