  Titans | Treylon Burks missing practice 'definitely hurts'    Mon Jun 27, 11:58 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks missing offseason practices 'definitely hurts,' according to QB Ryan Tannehill. 'It definitely hurts, right, not to be out there,' Tannehill said. 'But I think everyone in the building is trying to do their best to prepare, even the guys that aren't out there - mentally, making sure they're staying up on their scripts, and the walk-throughs and the jog-throughs and learning from the full-speed reps on tape. That's all you can do at this point is to try to learn each and every way you can, and then when the time comes, you're able to step on the grass and it's time to go.'

Footballguys view: Burks was a first-round pick for the Titans in the 2022 NFL draft, and he enters the league with a lot of hype and expectations around him. He's had arguably the worst offseason of any rookie, missing time in practice, having conditioning issues and problems with drops when he was out there. The Titans aren't going to fill the air with footballs in their run-heavy offense, so temper the expectations for the rookie.

  Titans | Chigoziem Okonkwo praised by QB    Fri Jun 24, 10:47 AM

Tennessee Titans TE Chigoziem Okonkwo was labeled 'a weapon' by QB Ryan Tannehill. 'Chig's done a great job for us,' Tannehill said. 'He's made some big strides this spring. I'm proud of the way he's come in, learned what to do, and we'll continue to push him on that. But just physically, to see his size, his strength, his speed, how he's able to play through contact, he definitely gives us another weapon.'

Footballguys view: Okonkwo has generated buzz from day in Tennessee. Austin Hooper will be the primary receiving tight end, but Okonkwo can do a decent Delanie Walker impression and could carve out a role early in two tight end sets as a move tight end. Monitor his development in dynasty leagues.

  Titans | Malik Willis to be No. 3 QB?    Thu Jun 23, 11:00 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Malik Willis will be on a 'gradual development' program while QB Logan Woodside will serves as the backup in 2022, according to Turron Davenport of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: We'll see how Willis goes through training camp and the preseason, but he may be further away from competing for a starting job than some think. One of the most exciting quarterbacks in this draft class, Willis can run and has a rocket arm. He needs to get better with timing and accuracy as a passer to be the best pro he can be.

  Titans | Nick Westbrook-Ikhine top two WR for TEN?    Thu Jun 23, 07:53 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine appears to be one of the top two receivers for the Titans entering training camp, in the opinion of TennesseeTitans.com's Jim Wyatt.

Footballguys view: Wyatt is on top of his game, so we take his observations of Titans camp as the gospel. Westbrook-Ikhine will likely be the no.2 receiver with Robert Woods (if healthy) as the no.1 receiver. Rookie first-round pick Treylon Burks has had a bad offseason and has a lot to prove before he gets on the field as a big part of the Titans passing game.

  Titans | WR Woods the no.1 Option    Wed Jun 22, 03:24 PM

Joe Rexrode, from The Athletic, reports Tennessee Titans WR Robert Woods should be the team's no.1 option to open the regular season if he's healthy.

Footballguys view: No surprise here really...it just comes down to whether or not Woods is healthy. Woods is the seasoned veteran, and he's been building strong chemistry with QB Ryan Tannehill this offseason. He tore his ACL last year with the Rams during Week 10 preparation but should be near 100 percent by the start of the year. With rookie WR Treylon Burks struggling to impress, Woods is the top receiver with TE Austin Hooper likely the second option in the passing game.

  Titans | Austin Hooper emerging as friendly target    Tue Jun 21, 02:54 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Austin Hooper 'has already surfaced as one of (Ryan) Tannehill's preferred options in the passing game,' according to ESPN.com's Turron Davenport.

Footballguys view: Davenport is one of the best out there covering a team, so Fantasy GMs need to have their antennas up here. The Titans offense will be looking for help in the passing game without A.J. Brown, and that could end up being a few more looks for Hooper than some expect. Hooper is currently going undrafted as the Titans offense hasn't been TE friendly, so keep him on your waiver wire speed dial just in case.

  Titans | Derrick Henry open to extension    Sat Jun 18, 02:01 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is open to signing a contract extension with the team. 'It's always good to get a promotion at your job,' Henry said on Tuesday, June 14. 'A promotion is always good. I'm trying to work through that but I'm currently still under contract. If that's what the future holds, then yeah, that'd be great.'

Footballguys view: Henry is the centerpiece of what the Titans do on offense, and he will once again be tasked with leading the way in 2022. He is signed through the 2023 season, and Henry has a cap hit this season of $15 million with $6 million in dead money. His cap hit this year is no.2 in the league behind Ezekiel Elliott who has a cap hit of $18.2 million.

  Titans | Dontrell Hilliard impressing    Thu Jun 16, 10:53 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Dontrell Hilliard caught touchdowns on back-to-back throws from QB Ryan Tannehill at the end of the final 7-on-7 period. He has shown good quickness and speed on his carries.

Footballguys view: Rookie Hasaan Haskins is seen as the primary backup to Derrick Henry, but Hilliard is there to compete for the spot as well. If Henry needed to miss time, the Titans would likely use Haskins on early downs and use Hilliard in space and as a receiving back on passing downs.

  Titans | Chigoziem Okonkwo shines again    Thu Jun 16, 10:50 AM

Tennessee Titans TE Chigoziem Okonkwo caught another touchdown pass Wednesday, June 15, after catching three in Tuesday's OTA session. This one, Okonkwo caught across the middle in 7-on-7 drills.

Footballguys view: Another day, and another positive report about Okonkwo. As we've noted before, when Matt Waldman and Cecil Lammey tag him as a sleeper tight end in this draft class we are paying attention. He's a muscular player who knows how to use his frame to box out smaller defenders. Okonkwo is focused when running routes over the middle and it's tough to bring him down when he builds a head of steam. Watch him in dynasty formats as he begins his pro career as a backup for the Titans behind Austin Hooper.

  Titans | Treylon Burks unavailable    Thu Jun 16, 10:47 AM

Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks was 'unavailable' the last two days of workouts, according to head coach Mike Vrabel.

Footballguys view: The 2022 first-round pick just needs some 'wins' when training camp starts. He's had arguably the worst offseason of any rookie taken on the first day of the draft. Burks is supposed to be the replacement for A.J. Brown, but he's struggled with drops, conditioning issues and problems with asthma. His current ADP is WR52 (11.05) in 12-team PPR formats. We'll see if he can get some 'wins' and generate some positive buzz with strong play in training camp and the preseason.

  Titans | Treylon Burks misses practice again    Wed Jun 15, 12:16 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks did not participate in practice at mandatory minicamp on Wednesday, June 15, his second straight absence.

Footballguys view: Burks has not been able to participate in mandatory minicamp, although he did spend some time on the field at rookie minicamp and OTAs. The 2022 first-round pick is the player pegged to replace WR A.J. Brown, and he's had a bad spring. Issues with drops, conditioning issues and problems with asthma have all hit Burks this offseason. We'll see if he can get in shape and shine for the team in training camp and the preseason.

  Titans | Chigoziem Okonkwo shines at minicamp    Tue Jun 14, 11:42 PM

Tennessee Titans TE Chigoziem Okonkwo was the biggest standout at mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, June 14, Ben Arthur of The Tennessean reports. Okonkwo caught three touchdowns during the seven-on-seven period.

Footballguys view: Okonkwo is a favorite rookie sleeper tight end for both Matt Waldman and Cecil Lammey. He reminds many in the scouting community of former Titans TE Delanie Walker, and the big-bodied rookie is certainly difficult to bring down. We'll monitor Okonkwo in deep dynasty formats as he begins his pro career behind Austin Hooper and Geoff Swaim.

  Titans | Treylon Burks not practicing to start minicamp    Tue Jun 14, 12:18 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks (undisclosed) didn't practice as the team started minicamp Tuesday, June 14.

Footballguys view: Burks has not had a great start to his young pro career. Now, it's super early and it's just mandatory minicamp but the guy who is essentially replacing A.J. Brown (and his team) would likely want to get off to a better start. Drops have plagued Burks when he's out there in addition to conditioning issues in rookie minicamp and dealing with asthma in practice as well. The 2022 first-round pick could be in for a sizeable role with the Titans this year, so we'll see how he responds in training camp.

  Titans | Derrick Henry ready for minicamp    Mon Jun 13, 05:56 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry will be participating in the mandatory minicamp this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Henry doesn't need to do much when he's out on the practice field. He's a proven pro and one of the best runners, certainly the most fearsome runner, in the league. Get Henry to the regular season and then let him lead the way - again - on offense. Fantasy GMs know he's got top-5 ability if he stays healthy in 2022.

  Titans | Treylon Burks dealing with asthma    Tue Jun 7, 01:13 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks is working through asthma issues this summer, according to receivers coach Rob Moore.'Some of those things are out of his control. He's got asthma. Those things happen...I'm excited about Treylon and what he's going to be able to bring to this football team. He just has to get himself healthy and be able to show everyone out here on the field what he's capable of,' Moore said.

Footballguys view: Burks had a rough start to rookie minicamp about a month ago. Initial reports said it was a conditioning issue, while later reports indicated he was battling some asthma. Burks was dropping passes at an alarming rate in camp, and that made all the reports. He's in line to take a large role in the Titans passing attack if he can get up to speed in the pro game. Burks is constantly compared to Deebo Samuel (he's not), and his run-after-the-catch ability should be highlighted by the offense.

Chestnut loves to cut back against the grain, and he's got the vision to find lanes other won't see. He's quick and has good burst but overall is a one-speed runner.

Tennessee Titans WR Robert Woods (knee) is pleased with the progress he has made with cuts and the speed he's been able to run at while rehabbing a torn anterior cruciate ligament, he said on Wednesday, June 1.

Footballguys view: All reports about Woods have been positive this offseason. He should be ready for the start of training camp, but we imagine the Titans will ease him into action with a plan to have him ready for Week 1 of the regular season. Without A.J. Brown, the Titans will lean on Woods as perhaps their no.1 target.

  Titans | Treylon Burks talks practice struggles    Wed Jun 1, 12:06 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks briefly addressed his issues staying on the practice field because of apparent conditioning issues. 'Everything isn't perfect and I'm just going to keep attacking it like I know how,' Burks said on Wednesday, June 1.

Footballguys view: Burks was the team's first-round pick, and a player tabbed to help replace A.J. Brown, but he has had a bad start to his rookie campaign. He struggled through rookie minicamp with conditioning issues and reports of drops. It's super early, and there's a lot to be excited about with his game, and the rookie has plenty of time to get things on track. He's not Deebo Samuel, as many liked to say in the pre-draft process, but his run-after-the-catch ability is what should be highlighted by the Titans offense.

  Titans | TEN inks Juwan Green    Wed Jun 1, 11:06 AM

Free-agent WR Juwan Green (Lions) has signed an undisclosed contract with the Tennessee Titans after a workout on Wednesday, June 1, per a source.

Footballguys view: The Titans were rumored to be in the market for more help at the wide receiver position, but adding Green wasn't what most thought they would do. They perhaps aren't done adding talent in the room, but Green is a longshot to make the final roster. Undrafted out of Albany in 2020, Green has spent a couple of seasons bouncing on and off practice squads (mostly with the Falcons).

  Titans | TEN to carry three quarterbacks?    Tue May 31, 12:48 AM

The Tennessee Titans will carry three quarterbacks into the 2022 season, including QBs Ryan Tannehill, Logan Woodside and Malik Willis, Justin Melo of Music City Miracles predicts.

Footballguys view: The team might not be ready to trust Willis if Ryan Tannehill goes down, but it isn't like Woodside is proven or even that promising compared to other backups. He has been in the offense for over three years, so the team likely values his knowledge of the offensive scheme and continuity with his teammates.

  Titans | Treylon Burks labored in pre-draft workouts    Mon May 30, 11:17 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks had a 'weight issue' before the 2022 NFL draft and 'labored to get through some' of his private workouts, which was a red flag for teams, according to Albert Breer of MMQB.

Footballguys view: We don't want to overreact, but you would have hoped Burks would be in better shape for his first team activities. The Titans ignored question marks about Georgia tackle Isaiah Wilson in the 2020 draft and he didn't last a year with the team. It's reasonable for this to give you pause before taking Burks in a rookie draft and it's a potential problem for the Titans offense, which is counting on Burks to fill the huge shoes of A.J. Brown, who was traded to the Eagles for the pick used to take the rookie + the 101st pick.

John Glennon, from Sports Illustrated, reports Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said there are 'no limitations' for rookie WR Treylon Burks at team OTAs. Burks had to miss time at rookie minicamp due to conditioning issues.

Footballguys view: Burks has had a rough start to his pro career. The team trades away A.J. Brown with the idea that Burks can be the man to replace him - if not this year then eventually. Burks then shows up at rookie minicamp, struggles with drops and has to miss time to catch his wind. We'll see if he can get in better shape and start performing better in training camp and the preseason.

  Titans | 'Not Content' at WR?    Wed May 25, 03:49 PM

Jim Wyatt, from TennesseeTitans.com, doesn't "think the Titans are content at WR" and he could see "another addition before the season at receiver."

Footballguys view: The Titans only have around $3 million in cap space at this time, so adding a veteran wide receiver in free agency would likely require making some roster adjustments. Will Fuller, Cole Beasley, and Emmanuel Sanders are some of the names out there the Titans may consider. They have Robert Woods and 2022 first-round pick Treylon Burks as the top two players on the depth chart - and there are question marks (and inexperience) behind those two. We'll see if they add to the position before the start of training camp.

  Titans | Dez Fitzpatrick expecting big role in 2022    Wed May 25, 12:06 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Dez Fitzpatrick is expecting to have a big role in 2022 after a disappointing rookie season. '(Last year provided me with) a lot of motivation going forward, from how things started, to how I was able to deal with it,' the 2021 fourth-round pick said. 'I just continued to work my tail off. And I am excited for this year and expecting to have a big role - I am trying to.'

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is the forgotten man with the Titans since they added WR Robert Woods via trade and selected WR Treylon Burks in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft. Word is the Titans may not be done adding talent to the position, and adding a veteran free agent would push Fitzpatrick further down the depth chart. The Titans want to run the ball early and often, so there's not much fantasy potential there for Fitzpatrick if he's no.3 or no.4 on the depth chart.

First-round pick Treylon Burks is the player everyone is talking about since A.J. Brown was traded to the Eagles. However, the veteran Woods may end up being the top target for the Titans this season if he's healthy and ready to go.

Tennessee Titans fourth-round draft choice TE Chigoziem Okonkwo agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Titans Monday, May 23. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Okonkwo was a favorite sleeper TE for both Matt Waldman and Cecil Lammey. He reminds those two of former Titans TE Delanie Walker, so it's interesting the team added Okonkwo in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL draft. Like Walker, Okonkwo can attack a defense from multiple positions on offense (tight end, H-back, slot receiver). The rookie will begin his career proving himself on the depth chart behind veterans Austin Hooper and Geoff Swaim.

I just want to be ready to go when it is time.'

Footballguys view: We'll see if Woods can be ready for training camp, but things seem to be trending in that direction. The Titans could always be cautious and start him on the PUP list as they ease him into action during the preseason. Woods is in line to be the top target for the Titans now that A.J. Brown was traded away. The veteran will compete with rookie first-round pick Treylon Burks for the top spot.

  Titans | TEN open to Derrick Henry extension    Wed May 18, 11:35 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry could get a one- or two-year contract extension in order to lower his 2022 and 2023 cap hits of $15 million and $15.5 million, respectively, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: This would clear up uncertainty about whether Henry will be on the team next year with a $12.5 million salary and only three million dead cap hit if he is released after next year. The team took Michigan RB Hassan Haskins in the fourth round this year, so an extension for Henry would hurt Haskins speculative dynasty value.

Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks agreed to a four-year deal worth $14,369,590, according to a source Tuesday, May 17. The deal is fully guaranteed and includes a fifth-year team option.

Footballguys view: Burks is the player the Titans have pegged to replace A.J. Brown (Eagles). He's strong after the catch and has the run-after-the-catch ability to turn short passes into long gains. Burks is unfairly compared to Deebo Samuel, mainly because he's got a linebacker's mentality with the ball in his hands much like the 49ers star receiver. He's got to get into pro shape and learn how to run better routes to play up to his potential in the pros, but things are shaping up for Burks to get plenty of opportunity as a rookie in 2022.

The rookie did have a bad drop reporters noted at rookie minicamp, but this is just the start of his career. Burks will get into pro shape and he'll work into the mix as the team's replacement for A.J. Brown. He's not Brown, and he's not Deebo Samuel (who he's often compared to), but Burks can make plays after the catch and should be utilized on short routes.
