The Titans have a quite a few players coming off serious injuries. At least one of them, hopefully, will come back in 2015 and have a huge year. Here are the 4 candidates that I have identifies for comeback player of the year:
Zach Brown- We heard of big things that were planned for Brown in Ray Horton's defense last year. We didn't get to see that come to fruition because his season was over almost before it started when he tore his pectoral muscle in week one last year. He has a lot to prove this year.
Justin Hunter- Hunter is one of the most talked about players around these parts. There is no limit to his physical abilities. He has shown some flashes, but has been consistently inconsistent in his first two years in the league. Last season was cut short for Hunter after he lacerated his spleen. Are there big things ahead for him in 2015?
Hakeem Nicks- This one is cheating a little bit because Nicks wasn't on the Titans in 2014, but Nicks, like Hunter, has a lot of ability. He was hoping for a re-birth in '14 with the Colts. That didn't happen. All of the talk from OTAs are that Nicks looks good, but when has anyone not looked good OTAs?
Byron Stingily- This is my outside of the box candidate. Stingily would have had a chance to establish himself as the right tackle last year, but his season was cut short because of an ankle injury. He will be in the mix for the starting right tackle spot when camp opens.
I considered Taylor Lewan as a candidate, but his season really never got going last year, and there really isn't anything for him to come back from since he was a rookie. If there is anyone else that you think should be considered, let me know in the comments.
