The Tennessee Titans opened camp on Saturday at Saint Thomas Sports Park. The day got off to an interesting start, with PFT hinting that the Titans could be interested in another veteran receiver.
Roddy White has interest, wants more than the minimum, could end up with Titans if Andre Johnson doesn't work out https://t.co/qYVQ7Oln91— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) July 30, 2016
On the field, the Titans rolled out their new look offensive line. Left to right, the Titans went with Lewan, Spain, Jones, Warmack and Conklin on the first team. The Titans are hoping Ben Jones and Jack Conklin are the additions that finally fix the offensive line woes.
At receiver, rookie Tajae Sharpe ran with the first team along with Rishard Matthews. Kendall Wright manned the slot position. I wouldn't read too much into that -- I'm sure Dorial Green-Beckham will get plenty of time with the ones. DGB checked into camp down about ten pounds from last season. At 228 pounds, the second year receiver was noticeably quicker on the field, according to Mike Mularkey.
By nearly all accounts, Andre Johnson looked great today. He made a few nice grabs, working well with Marcus Mariota. Marcus seems pretty excited about working with the seven time pro bowl receiver. “He's made a living with jumping over a guy, making a catch, a lot of those back-shoulder throws. That allows us as a quarterback to throw in a huge target range and it makes our job a little easier," Mariota told TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt.
There didn't appear to be many changes along the front seven. However, Brice McCain got time with the first team along with Perrish Cox at cornerback. Jason McCourty assumed his position back with the first team opposite of Cox and McCain. As expected, Rashad Johnson and Da'Norris Searcy manned the safety positions.
The Titans have two weeks of practices left before their first preseason game against the Chargers on August 13th.
