Tennessee Titans Morning Links: Rotation Of Mediocre Edition

New, comments

Tennessee_titans_30x21 A series of minor injuries have cost Derrick Morgan a ton of valuable practice time so far this off-season. Morgan is probably healthy enough to practice, but the franchise is terrified of a setback injury or worse. It's never to late to start panicking in NFL, but I'd hold off a while before getting concerned over these small nicks and scrapes during voluntary drills.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jason McCourty seems to be leading the pack of guys competing for the second CB spot, but the overall theme coming from OTAs is rotation. Rotations are good in baseball and on the defensive line, but that's about it. If they're seriously considering a rotation during the season then it's more so a sign of the depth of mediocrity than the depth of talent. Still, the thing to always keep in mind while we discuss this spot is that whomever gets it, they'll be better than Nick Harper.  Rod Hood, even with his busted ACL, is probably better than Nick Harper.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Rusty Smith has to do something magical in camp to make the active roster as long as both Kerry Collins and Chris Simms are on the roster behind VY. Still, Smith was drafted as a project for 'Dinger, and he should be safe on the practice squad unless he lights the world on fire during a preseason game and someone snatches him up.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 There was a big benefit show at the Bridgestone Arena last night to raise money and awareness for victims of the Nashville Flood. Signed Tennessee Titans footballs were auctioned off, and Jeff Fisher and Vince Young showed up to greet the crowd alongside stars and area politicians.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Former Titan WR Chris Davis, a fourth-round draft pick who was cut last year shortly after being arrested for suspicion of DUI, is on the street again after being cut by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Mike Florio says that in a effort to compromise, CJ2K and the Titans should meet on the middle ground of both of their positions. These are Deep Thoughts, by Mike Florio.
