Tyler Patmon

The Titans have a new defensive back, as today the team claimed cornerback Tyler Patmon off waivers from the Miami Dolphins, the Associated Press reports.

Patmon, who is 5-foot-10 and 188 pounds, played 11 games for the Dallas Cowboys and two games for the Dolphins last season. He finished the season with 11 tackles and six passes defensed.

The former undrafted free agent from Oklahoma State played 11 games and had one interception as a rookie for Dallas in 2014.

Patmon played three seasons with Kansas before spending his senior year at Oklahoma State. He had 172 tackles, 31 pass breakups and seven interceptions in his college career.

Titans Come to Terms with OL Will Campbell

Will Campbell

The Titans have agreed to a contract with offensive lineman Will Campbell, the Associated Press reports.

The team announced his addition Tuesday.

Campbell, who is 6-foot-4 and 311 pounds, has alternated between the offensive line and defensive line during his previous NFL stops with the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers. He has never played in an NFL regular-season game.

The Jets selected Campbell in the sixth round of the 2013 draft out of Michigan, where he primarily played on the defensive line.

Titans Get a Visit From Former Texans WR Andre Johnson

Andre Johnson

Five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson visited the Titans on Tuesday, a team source told Jason Wolf of the Tennessean.

The sides have not advanced to discussing a possible contract.

Johnson, 35, who spent his first 12 NFL seasons with the Texans, managed just 41 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns last season with the Colts. But he’d provide a veteran presence and dependable target for second-year quarterback Marcus Mariota.

The Titans’ wide receiving corps was among the least productive in the league last season. Tennessee signed former Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews this offseason and used a fifth-round draft pick on former University of Massachusetts receiver Tajae Sharpe, who was running with the first team by the end of offseason workouts.

Titans Have to Figure Out How to Replace Safety Michael Griffin

Michael Griffin

The Titans are faced with replacing safety Michael Griffin, a two-time Pro Bowler who was released last week.

Titans general manager Jon Robinson said the team will consider all options, Jim Wyatt of Titansonline.com reports.

“We have a lot of options,’’ Robinson said. “And there are certainly some guys on this football team that are capable of stepping in and we expect those guys to compete for that spot. And in free agency there’s some players, and in the draft, there’s some players. So there’s definitely several avenues we could go down.

“I don’t know if you ever fill a Michael Griffin or replace a Michael Griffin, you just hope somebody can pick up the torch and carry it like he did.”

Robinson didn’t discuss specific options outside the team. But he made it clear the Titans were thankful for Griffin’s contributions over the years. The Titans released Griffin early so he’d have a better chance to find a new home long before free agency begins in March.

“I know he’s been a Pro Bowl player here, a fixture in the community, he’s been a staple in that secondary for a lot of years,’’ Robinson said of Griffin. “It was certainly a tough decision, one that Mike (Mularkey) and I talked about extensively.

“In the end it was a decision we felt was best for the team, and in talking to Michael we felt it was only fair to him, although hard to swallow, teams are going to start filling their rosters in March and obviously April with the draft. For what he has done for this team and this community, we wanted to do what’s fair for him and his family, to give him a chance to have 31 other teams evaluate him and try to work on something for him, so he has a chance to continue his career. We didn’t feel it was fair for him to let that go later on.”

Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil the Early Favorite to Go Number One in the Draft

The early favorite for the Titans’ choice as the No.1-overall draft pick is Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil according to Tony Pauline of TFY Draft Insider.

In a perfect world, the Titans would prefer to trade down to reap a bounty of draft choices from some team desperate to land a franchise quarterback but at this point there do not seem to be any Jameis Winston/Marcus Mariota/Andrew Luck caliber prospect available in the 2016 draft. Tunsil would be the perfect fallback option.

The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Tunsil is considered a rare “dancing bear” athlete for the left tackle spot. In this scenario, current Titans LT Taylor Lewan would kick to right tackle, upgrading two positions.

Titans With Interest in Free Agent Running Back Doug Martin?

The Titans may be interested in signing impending free agent running back Doug Martin away from the Buccaneers according to Terry McCormick of Titans Insider.

It doesn’t sound like McCormick has any real evidence of this move but he highlights several intriguing factors. New Titans general manager Jon Robinson was hired away from the Bucs and is obviously familiar with Martin’s body of work.

The Titans have a pile of cash to spend in free agency and a desperate need at running back as none of the current options on the roster-which include 2014 draft bust Bishop Sankey, veteran third-down back Dexter McCluster, rookie David Cobb, and pedestrian Antonio Andrews-seem capable of grabbing the starting job.

Andrews led that uninspiring group with 520 yards on 143 carries this past season. For perspective, consider that rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota was the Titans’ second-leading rusher with 252 yards on just 34 attempts despite missing several games.

For his part, Martin has expressed his desire to re-sign in Tampa. Running backs have a notoriously short shelf life in the NFL, however, and no one could blame Martin for opting for the biggest payday available.
