Packers hired Matt LaFleur as head coach.

It is a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it came down to LaFleur or ex-Bucs OC Todd Monken, who is also being sought after by multiple other clubs. Green Bay was the only one on LaFleur's tail this hiring cycle. It's a gamble on unknown upside, but LaFleur has worked under two of the sharpest offensive minds in the sport in Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan. He just completed his first year as an offensive play-caller, serving as the Titans' OC. Marcus Mariota was consistently hurt, so it's tough to judge LaFleur off that one year. However, he did get Derrick Henry going late in the season, perhaps too late. LaFleur figures to run an up-tempo offense and gets to do it with one of the greatest quarterbacks ever in Aaron Rodgers. It's also good news for Aaron Jones. Both McVay and Shanahan prefer one-back offenses. We like the move for everyone involved here.

Titans waived FB Jalston Fowler.

UDFA RB Dalyn Dawkins has been promoted from the practice squad to take Fowler's roster spot. Fowler had yet to play an offensive snap this season. The Titans would rather use his spot on a true runner.

Free agent RB Charles Sims worked out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Released by the Bucs at final cuts, Sims' name has not come up much this season. With both Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry healthy, Sims would see precious few snaps were he to get a contract.

Free agent QB Paxton Lynch worked out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Lynch has visited a handful of teams since being waived by the Broncos in early September, but he hasn't signed anything yet. The Titans current backup to Marcus Mariota is Blaine Gabbert, so working out quarterbacks isn't the worst idea for Tennessee. The Titans also worked out former Jaguars TE Ben Koyack.

Titans released WR Nick Williams.

Williams spent three weeks on the 53-man roster. He committed a costly Week 5 drop. The 27-year-old journeyman has 28 career catches.

Titans released QB Austin Davis.

With Blaine Gabbert back to full health, the Titans no longer need an insurance policy at quarterback.
Tue, Oct 9, 2018 04:23:00 PM

Titans released WR Rishard Matthews.

This was really the only possible outcome after Matthews walked away from the team this week. Tennessee's No. 1 receiver each of the last two seasons, Matthews is talented and has consistently produced when given the opportunity. This incident could scare off a few teams, but it would be a surprise if he does not land somewhere in the near future. With Matthews out the door, Corey Davis is locked into the No. 1 role, and talented sophomore Taywan Taylor should see more opportunities.
Thu, Sep 27, 2018 12:12:00 PM's Terry McCormick reports free agent Matt Moore has turned down a chance to work out for the Titans.

Per McCormick, Moore has also been contacted by the 49ers. His interest level there is unclear. It's unusual for a non-retired free agent to turn down a workout. Perhaps Moore didn't like his odds of being signed or the potential money. Moore would be an upgrade on Blaine Gabbert behind Marcus Mariota.

Dolphins claimed QB Luke Falk off waivers from the Titans.

The No. 199 overall pick of the draft, Falk had a rough preseason for the Titans. He was predictably prolific in Mike Leach's Washington State offense but grew less efficient as time went on. He also had some injury issues and is not a good athlete. He probably won't be long for the Dolphins, but his arrival means at least one of Brock Osweiler or David Fales will be sent packing.

Titans released OG Xavier Su'a-Filo.

Signed in March, Su'a-Filo handled left guard for the Texans the last two seasons, but he was one of the worst starters in the league. Still, the former second-rounder has a good chance to latch on as an experienced backup somewhere else.
Sat, Sep 1, 2018 02:12:00 PM

Titans waived/released WR Nick Williams, WR Deontay Burnett, WR Jordan Veasy, RB Dalyn Dawkins, LB Josh Carraway, DB Demontre Hurst, DE David King, OG Xavier Su'a-Filo, DL Julius Warmsley, OL Tyler Marz, OL Elijah Nkansah, TE Ethan Wolf, TE Jerome Cunningham, DB Josh Kalu, S Damon Webb, LB Robert Spillane, OL Nico Falah, DB Trey Caldwell, DB Rico Gafford, OL Laurence Gibson, DE Francis Kallon, LB Jeff Knox, DL Du'Vonta Lampkin, LB Nyles Morgan, DE Tobenna Okeke, DT Mike Ramsay, TE Tim Semisch, WR Brandon Shippen, DB Jason Thompson, RB Lenard Tillery, LB Tony Washington, OL Cody Wichmann, and DB Steven Terrell.

Nick Williams made some noise early in the preseason, but he fell behind Taywan Taylor and Tajae Sharpe. The Titans also place WR Devin Ross and P Austin Barnard on injured reserve. These moves get the Titans to the 53-man roster limit.

Titans waived QB Luke Falk.

A sixth-round rookie out of Washington State, Falk had a dismal preseason, completing just 32-of-58 passes for 296 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He was also sacked seven times. The Titans will go forward with Blaine Gabbert as the backup to starter Marcus Mariota.
Sat, Sep 1, 2018 02:05:00 PM

Titans waived RB Akrum Wadley.

An undrafted rookie out of Iowa, Wadley appeared on his way to earning a roster spot in mid-August, but he just did not make the cut. The Titans will likely try to sneak him onto their practice squad. Tennessee remains extremely thin behind Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis.

Titans OC Matt LaFleur is using Corey Davis across the formation in practice, including the slot.

"I think Corey is trying to really focus hard on leading that group and helping our offense and be a productive player," coach Mike Vrabel said. Davis has been all the rage in camp, being mentioned as "one of the stars" as he "continues to impress." Davis was allotted only 34 snaps from the slot last season since that position was hoarded by Eric Decker. Now practicing both inside and on the outside, Davis should remain on the field whether it's Taywan Taylor or Rishard Matthews (or both) who are lined up opposite side.

Titans signed WR Rishard Matthews to a one-year, $7.75 million contract extension through 2019.

This keeps him in Tennessee through his age-30 season. Matthews had been sidelined throughout camp for undisclosed reasons held from the media, but it now appears that "minor injury" was merely a holdout. He eclipsed 50 yards just once over the Titans' final six games after returning from a hamstring injury last season, but remains only one year removed from posting a 65-945-9 receiving line with Marcus Mariota. If there is no injury concern moving forward, he should immediately jump back on the radar as a confident selection in the mid-rounds of fantasy drafts.

Titans released TE Phillip Supernaw.

Although more famous for his name than game, Supernaw appeared in at least 15 games for the Titans each of the past three seasons. He scored his first career touchdown in 2017. A blocker and special teamer, Supernaw should get a chance to crack someone else's 53-man roster.

Titans signed S Kenny Vaccaro.

Vaccaro is a much needed addition in Tennessee's secondary after the team lost S Johnathan Cyprien for the season last week. The Titans also reportedly had good talks with FA Eric Reid, but felt the need to move on Vaccaro once interests picked up from other potential suitors. Vaccaro turned 27 in February.
Sat, Aug 4, 2018 09:55:00 AM

Free agent DB Lardarius Webb will visit the Titans on Friday.

He's the fourth safety the Titans are having in for a visit as they search for a veteran body to take Johnathan Cyprien's (ACL) roster spot.
Thu, Aug 2, 2018 05:06:00 PM

Free agent S Mike Mitchell will visit the Titans on Friday.

Mitchell joins Kenny Vaccaro and Eric Reid in visiting the Titans after they lost Johnathan Cyprien (ACL) for the season on Wednesday. A starter for the Steelers each of the past four seasons, Mitchell was released in March.
Thu, Aug 2, 2018 03:49:00 PM

Free agent S Kenny Vaccaro will visit the Titans on Friday.

The Titans have a need at safety after Johnathan Cyprien was lost for the season on Wednesday. The team is also planning to work out fellow free agent Eric Reid. Vaccaro is perhaps the most surprising player still on the open market.
