Tennessee Titans News Links: Made it to Friday!

Turn and Face the Strange: Titans Links from Jerlindsey

The Tennessean-USA TODAY Sports

"Good news for people who love bad news,
We've lost the plot and we just can't choose..."

Titans Links!
If you haven't heard: Wide Receiver Tajae Sharpe could grab a starting spot. He was running with the first team during OTAs this off-season, and the coaches are impressed with hit hands and work ethic. Paul K is projecting Sharpe as being one of the base receivers, and Wright sliding over into the slot. Bold prediction? We'll see.

"Left guard (Quinton Spain): He's the incumbent, having started the Titans' final six games in 2015. Strong and slimmed down, he could hold on but he's got Jeremiah Poutasi, rookie Sebastian Tretola and former center Brian Schwenke working to replace him."

Jim Wyatt's "Training Camp Preview" series brings us to the Tight Ends. Have I mentioned I love Walker lately? Walker's contract was extended during the off-season, and Craig Stevens (cut Stevens?) was brought back on a one-year deal. Fasano is still chilling on the roster as well, and some how Supernaw is too.

"In the spotlight: Walker. The 11th-year pro led the Titans and all NFL tight ends in receptions in 2015 when he caught 94 passes for 1,088 receiving yards, with six touchdowns. He set a franchise records for tight ends in catches and receiving yards, and became just the ninth tight end in NFL history to record 90 catches in a season. Yeah, it's a tough act to follow. Walker did his damage even when defenses knew he was the team's primary target. In 2016, he should benefit from the presence of running backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, and improved play around him. Will a more talented supporting cast cause his eye-catching numbers to decrease? That's what fantasy football owners are worried about. But the extra weapons could also free him up to make bigger plays."
