State of the Tennessee Titans Roster: Tight End

New, comments

Tight end is one position on this roster that will actually be interesting to watch in training camp.  Bo Scaife will enter camp as the number one guy, mostly just because he has been here for the longest and has shown some flashes of being a good tight end.  We have had the Scaife debate here quite a few times so I won't waste much time on it, but if he is going to live up to being one of the top 5 tight ends in the game, which is how the Titans are paying him, he is going to have to not disappear for games at a time like he has done the rest of his career.

Alge Crumpler should enter camp as the #2.  He proved to be a disappointment last year only catching 24 passes for 257 yards and 1 touchdown (Well, that and fumbling away the Titans' shot at moving on in the playoffs).  Alge is still a solid blocking tight end and figures to move even more towards that role in 2009.

It will be interesting to see what they can get from Jared Cook.  He is a guy with a TON of upside, see the highlight video after the jump, but it will probably take him a while to become the blocker the coaching staff will want him to be, but don't be surprised to see some packages with him in them early in season.  He is a guy that can present a lot of match-up problems.

Craig Stevens will probably need a really, really good camp to make this roster.
