Today we continue our look at the Titans roster by looking at the tight end position.
Delanie Walker is your headliner here. He is becoming a perennial Pro Bowler and is in the conversation as one of the best tight ends in the league- especially when you consider how good he is at blocking the run game. Signing Walker was one of the few things that Ruston Webster got right.
The Titans have some pretty solid depth at tight end. Rookie Jonnu Smith seems to be built in the mold of Walker. They also re-signed Phillip Supernaw to continue to basically be an offensive tackle with a tight end number. They also have Jace Amaro, Jerome Cunningham and Tim Semisch. Amaro could make the roster. The other guys won’t.
How quickly will Smith get acclimated to the offense? This team now has a lot of weapons on offense. Being able to lineup with Walker on one side and Smith on the other with Corey Davis and Rishard Matthews outside will create a lot of match-up problems, but that can’t happen until Smith is up to speed.
Who makes the week 1 roster:
Delanie, Smith and Supernaw are locks. Amaro is the only other guy that has a chance, and that will come down to numbers are other positions.
