The Tennessee Titans have named their captains for the 2023 season. On offense the captains are Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry, and Aaron Brewer. At first glance it is a bit surprising that Brewer was named a captain playing a new position this year, but Mike Herndon made a good point on Twitter, Mike Vrabel seems to value having a captain at every level. It makes sense that the captain on the offensive line would be the center.

On defense, the captains are Jeffery Simmons, Azeez Al-Shaair, and Kevin Byard. No surprise with Simmons and Byard - those guys are the clear leaders of their groups. Al-Shaair is in his first year with the team, but he will wear the green dot and has been great by all accounts this summer.

Perennial Pro-Bowler Morgan Cox is the special teams captain.
