The Titans have invited 20 players to tryout in the rookie minicamp that started today.
Once again, these players are not under contract. They have only been invited to rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Titans' roster is currently filled at the maximum occupancy of 90. If the Titans wanted to sign one of these players, they would have to free up a roster spot first. More likely than not the Titans are just looking for extra bodies to fill practice repetitions.
