Titans signed WR Nick Williams, formerly of the Falcons.

Williams knows new OC Matt LaFleur from their time together with both the Redskins and Falcons. He'll compete for one of the very last 53-man jobs.

Titans signed first-round LB Rashaan Evans to a four-year contract.

The deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2022. The Titans traded up from No. 25 to snag Evans at No. 22. Evans’ lone deficiency is in coverage, where he remains a work in progress and may not be ready to play on all three downs. Still a relentless, violent, and explosive off-ball linebacker, Evans projects as a plus starter with uncommon pass-rush versatility for his position. He compares to Lawrence Timmons coming out.
May 15 - 6:29 PM

Titans signed sixth-round QB Luke Falk to a four-year contract.

Sixth-round S Dane Cruikshank has also signed his rookie deal. A 40-game starter at Wazzu, Falk completed 68.3 percent of his throws to go along with a 119:39 TD-to-INT ratio at 7.1 yards per attempt. Falk’s stock dipped as a senior as he was temporarily benched and set career-low efficiency marks. A sub-par athlete who took a whopping 107 sacks over his final three seasons, Falk’s strengths are his quick release and mastery of Mike Leach’s all-shotgun spread. Similar to A.J. McCarron, Falk is a probable long-term backup with an outside chance to become a low-end NFL starter.

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt reports QB Blaine Gabbert is the "favorite" to win the team's backup job.

Titans waived Alex Tanney leaving only Gabbert, sixth-round rookie Luke Falk, and second-year UDFA Tyler Ferguson as the team's backup options. The trio will jostle for position throughout camp but Gabbert remains the odds-on favorite to be No. 2 behind Marcus Mariota. Gabbert played surprisingly well in his five-game run as the Cardinals' starter last season and has a good chance of seeing the field given Mariota's history of injuries.
May 5 - 11:15 AM

Titans signed S Kendrick Lewis.

30-year-old (in June) Lewis spent last season out of the league after he was released by the Ravens last March. He's made 81 career starts but will be competing for a bottom-of-the-roster spot with the Titans this summer.
May 2 - 11:05 AM

Titans signed UCLA DE Matt Dickerson.

Dickerson (6’5/292) was a two-plus-year starter on the Bruins’ defensive line, managing seven tackles for loss with 1.5 sacks, then breaking his collarbone last October and missing the final six games. Long on size and athleticism but short on college production, Dickerson helped himself at the Combine with a 5.06 forty, 31-inch vertical, and 26 reps on the bench. Dickerson profiles as a long-term rotational role player.
Apr 29 - 11:19 AM

Titans signed WR USC WR Deontay Burnett.

Burnett (6’0/186) turned pro after three years at USC, compiling a career 152/1,897/12.5/16 receiving line and emerging as Sam Darnold’s go-to guy as a 2017 junior. Burnett caught 8-of-9 TDs on slot routes last season, and PFF College charted Burnett with the second-lowest drop rate (2.3%) in this year’s wide receiver class. Limited leading up to the draft by a torn hamstring, Burnett managed a 4.70 forty time at the Trojans’ Pro Day. Burnett’s soft hands and toughness give him a shot to hang around, but ultimately he is a low-upside slot-only prospect with pedestrian traits.
Apr 28 - 8:58 PM

Titans signed North Dakota State OLB Nick Deluca.

Deluca (6’3/251) went from leading the Bison in special teams tackles as a true freshman to earning first-team FCS All-American honors as a senior, finishing his career with 12 tackles for loss and three interceptions across 36 starts. A small-school overachiever who tested as a sluggish ninth-percentile SPARQ athlete at the Combine, Deluca’s likeliest NFL ticket may be back on special teams.
Apr 28 - 7:37 PM

Titans signed Iowa RB Akrum Wadley.

Wadley (5’10/194) emerged as the Hawkeyes’ lead back in his final two seasons, graduating with a career 454/2,526/26 rushing line on 5.6 yards per carry with 63 receptions. In 2017, PFF College charted Wadley with 51 missed tackles forced, equaling Saquon Barkley’s broken tackle count. Wadley posted a high fumble rate in college, however, and isn’t a dynamic athlete for his size with 4.54 speed. Struggling to keep on weight, Wadley weighed in at 189 pounds at Iowa’s Pro Day. He would do well to carve out a No. 2 back role in the pros.
Apr 28 - 7:23 PM

Titans signed Ohio State S Damon Webb.

Webb (5’11/209) started each of his final two seasons with the Buckeyes, graduating with four career tackles for loss and six interceptions and twice earning honorable mention All-Big Ten from the conference’s coaches. Webb replaced Malik Hooker as Ohio State’s single-high centerfielder in 2017 and flourished, also showing some ability to hang with slot receivers in man coverage. Webb ran 4.61/4.62 before the draft and isn’t an elite athlete, but he should contribute early on special teams and offers low-end starter potential down the line.
Apr 28 - 7:05 PM

Titans selected Washington State QB Luke Falk with the No. 199 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Falk (6’4/215) walked on at Wazzu and went on to start 40 games, setting school records for career wins (27) and passing yards (14,496) and completing 68.3% of his throws with a 119:39 TD-to-INT ratio at 7.1 yards per attempt. Falk’s stock dipped as a senior as he was temporarily benched and set career-low efficiency marks. A sub-par athlete who took a whopping 107 sacks over his final three seasons, Falk’s strengths are his quick release and mastery of Mike Leach’s all-shotgun spread, but his arm strength is mediocre, and Falk attempted nearly three-quarters of his college passes within ten yards. Similar to A.J. McCarron, Falk is a probable long-term backup with an outside chance to become a low-end NFL starter.
Apr 28 - 4:41 PM

Titans selected Arizona S Dane Cruikshank with the No. 152 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Cruikshank (6’1/209) turned pro as a redshirt sophomore after starting at cornerback as a freshman and "spur" safety last year, tallying seven career tackles for loss and five interceptions. NFL scouts placed Cruikshank back at corner during January’s East-West Shrine. Cruikshank generated attention at the Combine with 89th-percentile SPARQ results, including 4.41 speed and a twitchy 6.89 three-cone time. A traits-based project, Cruikshank looks like an early-career special teamer with long-term upside for more.
Apr 28 - 2:37 PM

Titans traded up with the Raiders to select Boston College DE Harold Landry with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Tennessee gave up the Nos. 57 and 89 picks to climb 16 spots. Landry (6’2/252) set a B.C. single-season record with 16.5 sacks as a 2016 junior, then managed five sacks in eight games as a senior before suffering a year-ending ankle injury. Healthy for the Combine, Landry blew it up with a 4.64 forty and 87th-percentile athleticism. Landry’s tape reveals an edge-bending speed rusher who is unlikely to be a run-defense factor early in his career. Still, Landry’s outside pass-rush skills raise his floor as a sub-package contributor at worst with a double-digit-sack ceiling.
Apr 27 - 7:46 PM

Titans traded up with the Ravens to select Alabama LB Rashaan Evans with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

The Titans traded the Nos. 25 and 125 picks for Nos. 22 and 215. Evans (6’2/232) began college as a situational edge rusher before taking over as Alabama’s starting weak-inside linebacker for his final two seasons, earning first-team All-SEC as a senior and finishing his career with 21.5 tackles for loss and 14 sacks. Evans’ lone deficiency came in coverage, where he remains a work in progress and may not be ready to play on all three downs. Still a relentless, violent, and explosive off-ball linebacker, Evans projects as a plus starter with uncommon pass-rush versatility for his position. He compares to Lawrence Timmons coming out.
Apr 26 - 10:31 PM

Tajae Sharpe (foot) is participating in Titans' offseason workouts.

Sharpe missed all of last season with a foot injury. He's back to compete for a spot behind WRs Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews, and Taywan Taylor.
