Turn and Face the Strange: Titans Links from Jerlindsey

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Sorry for the lack of links last Thursday and Friday. There was literally two things to link to, and nothing all that interesting.

Titans Links!
Paul Kuharsky says that the addition of the Titans' new receivers will not change their offensive philosophy. The Titans have "presumably" gotten better with the addition of Davis and Taylor, and so it's no surprise it prompts questions on whether or not the Titans will start going out more in three receiver sets. PK states that the Titans ran the fifth most snaps in the NFL with two or three tight ends, and he thinks the lack of receiver threats or depth was the reason for that. He says the reason is because Tennessee is a run first team, and that second tight end is vital to the running game.

Rookie tight end Jonnu Smith is ready to listen, learn, and contribute. Smith says that right now he needs to be a sponge, and that he needs to learn the playbook and listen to others. He says you have "one mouth, and two ears," and that should tell you a lot, and that his ears will be wide open. Mularkey was asked how quickly Jonnu can make an impact on the team. Mike said that all depends on how quickly he picks things up. Mularkey said they plan on moving him around quite a bit, and want him to play both the Y and F tight end position, and that he is going to be an every down player for the team.

Adoree' Jackson aims to earn the trust of his team. Jackson says it is a blessing to play for defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, and that he is going to listen to him because he knows how to get to the best out of him as a player. He also says the DBs have already been treating him like he has been with the team for a while, and that he wants to learn from them, and that they have all made him feel welcome. Now he plans on getting as comfortable as fast as possible, because he wants the coaches to know that he knows what he's doing, and he wants to earn their trust.

That's all for today. Happy reading!
