The team captains have been named. The six players that were named team captains were Brian Orakpo, Jurrell Casey, Delanie Walker, Wesley Woodyard, Daimion Stafford, and Marcus Mariota. Walker and Mariota are the captains for the offense, Casey and Orakpo for the defense, and Woodyard and Stafford for special teams. Captain the team to victory guys!
The Titans claimed offensive lineman Josh Kline off waivers yesterday. Kind of a surprising move to me honestly. To make room the Titans waived Cody Riggs. The add puts the Titans up to nine offensive lineman. Depth was definitely needed and lacking along the line last year, so it appears we now have the depth we desperately needed last season. Welcome to the team, Kline!
A veteran approach has Tajae Sharpe poised for success. Sharpe noticed some concepts of the position that he hadn't seen before while playing the Kansas State Wildcats in 2013. He saw someone disguising the receivers alignment, and from that he started to learn the thought processes for matchups and how to get into better positions against defenders. All of it intrigued him to learn the concepts and where he fit, and how to get in a better matchup against defenders.
Three notes from yesterday's practice. Jack Conklin is ready. He feels the matchup against the Vikings will be a physical one, and he's ready for the challenge. LeBeau feels the Vikings will start Bradford. LeBeau feels that no matter who their quarterback is: it doesn't drastically change their plans offensively. Perrish Cox has practiced all week, and Mularkey has liked what he's been seeing. Mularkey said Cox has been running around as well as he's seen him, and it is nice to see him and McCourty on the field together.
Bobby April is all kinds of excited to help out the Titans. Originally the dude was going to retire, but then Mike Mularkey came a calling, and he gladly answered. The decision to continue coaching wasn't hard for him to make because of his past experience working with Mularkey. This will be his 25th season coaching in the NFL. Holy.

That's all for today. Happy reading!
