The Titans wrapped up their three-day minicamp on Thursday, June 14th, with a team-bonding trip to the MNPD Training Academy for a bit of gun safety instruction and community relations development.
But that’s not the only thing the team accomplished today. Towards the end of the afternoon, Ian Rapoport reported that the Titans had come to terms with their 2nd-round draft pick,
Harold Honor Landry.

Not long after that came the official announcement from team reporter Jim Wyatt.
The last day of minicamp is the earliest date in quite some time (possibly ever) that the Titans have inked their entire draft class to rookie contracts.
Corey Davis missed the first day of training camp waiting to finalize his contract details in 2017.
In 2016, it was Kevin Byard’s contract negotiations causing a delay, with the third-round pick not officially signed until July 15, 2016.
Marcus Mariota signed his contract on July 22, 2015, 8 days before training camp was scheduled to begin.
2014 first-round pick Taylor Lewan didn’t sign his contract until July 24, 2014, right before training camp opened the following weekend.
I could go on and on with this history... but you get the idea. It’s been a while.
Having only 4 draft picks certainly helps in getting them all under contract quickly, but it is still refreshing to know that all picks have been signed by mid-June.
Now Jon Robinson can focus all his attention on finalizing Taylor Lewan’s contract extension, which will likely make him the highest-paid tackle in NFL history.
