Titans Notebook: The Roundup

Although we are in some tough times, fans are clamoring for the sweet solace of an NFL season. The league is eager to get the gears rolling on the 2020 campaign. All 32 teams are preparing their facilities to keep players and staff safe and the Titans are no different.

It’s been awhile since I’ve dropped a gem on the Overtime Heroics masses so I’m going to rake through a few of the Titans headlines.

Training Camp

The Titans started up camp July 28th, with rookies and quarterbacks all reporting a few days earlier.

We are all living in a 53-man roster world and the sweetest team in the world can be the meanest team in the world. Meaning that there is a lot of talent to evaluate, cuts are eventual and the cruel business is just that. Business.

There are multiple positions that need to be answered badly. Chiefly kicker.

Tennessee had the worst team field goal percentage since the 1986 St. Louis Cardinals. On the roster are Greg Joseph (who played two games with the Titans last year) and rookie Tucker McCann. But as reported by Nashville Post writer Michael Gallagher veteran free agent kicker Stephen Gostkowski just bought a house in Franklin, Tennessee. The former New England Patriots kicker’s house is just 21 miles outside of Nashville.

Isaiah Wilson

First rounder and All-SEC second teamer Isaiah Wilson was placed on the NFL’s new reserve/COVID-19 list.

This means that the former Georgia Bulldog has either tested positive for the corona virus or has been in contact with someone that has tested positive.

Wilson is expected to break into a starting position but has yet to sign his rookie contract.

Without a preseason, rookies will be thrown into the fire but Wilson possesses the skills to survive a first year in the pros.

NFL Top 100 Rankings

A popularity list that usually raises the blood pressure of NFL purists the NFL’s yearly list is without it’s critics. But despite the list being as popular as Yngwie Malmsteen’s ego two current Titans would make the list.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill would start the Tennessee appearances at 68. The signal caller earned his first Pro Bowl selection, led the league in passer rating and was the 2019 Comeback Player of the Year.

Running back Derrick Henry would crack the top 10 at well, 10. The back had a sterling season leading the league in rushing yards and carrying the Titans into last season’s AFC Championship game.

D-Lineman Jurrell Casey and cornerback Logan Ryan made the list at 71 and 60, respectively. Though neither one is on the team.

Where In The World Is Vic Beasley

For the first two days of Titans training camp newly signed linebacker Vic Beasley did not report to the facilities.

“He told me he will be reporting to camp in the near future,” Robinson said in a statement Thursday. “Our current focus is on the players that are here now, getting everyone acclimated to the (virus) protocols, our building, and our football program. We will have the same acclimation process with Vic when he reports.”

Beasley who was signed by the Titans to a one-year 9.5 million dollar contract has been in contact and will report soon. Until then he will be fined $50,000 for each day he misses.
