Titans agree to deal with former Bills guard Andy Levitre

Mar 13, 2013

Following the retirement of future Hall of Fame guard Steve Hutchinson, the Tennessee Titans hit the free agent market in dire need of a replacement to solidify their offensive line. They found one in former Bills guard Andy Levitre. Titans owner Bud Adams wasted no time opening up the pocketbook to sign Levitre, who, despite maybe not getting the recognition he deserves from the mainstream media as a member of the Buffalo Bills, is widely regarded around the NFL as one of, if not the top up-and-coming offensive guard in the NFL. Levitre joins an offensive line whose top priorities…

Jared Cook reunited with former Titans head coach Jeff Fisher in St. Louis

Mar 13, 2013

The Tennessee Titans inked former 49ers tight end Delanie Walker to a four-year, $17.5 million deal ($8.5 million guaranteed) in light of losing Jared Cook to free agency. If Cook was to be franchised, he was demanding that he be treated as a wide receiver in that regard, thus netting him a bigger one-year payday, and based on his lack of blocking prowess despite his immense frame, that probably would have made more sense. However, the Titans simply weren’t willing to budge. Negotiations between the two parties broke down soon after and the former 2009 third-round pick was permitted to hit the…

Steve Hutchinson calls it a career after 12 seasons

Mar 12, 2013

After 12 NFL seasons and 169 career games (in which he never missed a start) one of the best interior offensive lineman of this generation is calling it a career. Current Titans and former Seahawks and Vikings offensive guard Steve Hutchinson is set to retire on Tuesday, FOX’s Jay Glazer reported on Monday night. Hutchinson’s mind was willing to continue his illustrious career, but his body, according to Glazer, was not there yet thanks to a slow-healing knee injury. Hutchinson, 35, was a star the moment he hit the field after being selected by the Seattle Seahawks with the No….

According to NFL.com, Williams was notified on Thursday that he has been reinstated by the league and is free to seek employment.

Jake Locker cleared to play in Titans next game, season on the verge of being lost

Nov 7, 2012

Tuesday was a great day for the Tennessee Titans. Head Coach Mike Munchak said Tuesday that Jake Locker has been cleared for contact, according to TitanInsider.com. After the blow-out loss the Titans suffered on Sunday at the hands of the Chicago Bears, it seems like a good time for a new look under center. This Sunday presents the challenge of the Miami Dolphins for the Titans. It could be a manageable game for Locker to make his return. The Dolphins have one of the worst pass defenses in the league, but also possess the third best run defense. Potentially, it will allow Locker to…

Bears dominate Titans in most complete win of the season

Nov 4, 2012

After seeing the Chicago Bears absolutely destroy the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, it is hard to not think of them as the best team in the NFL. With a huge matchup against the Houston Texans upcoming next week, many thought Tennessee could pose a problem for the Bears, but that was hardly the case. The Bears won the game 51-20, beating the Titans in every facet of the game. From the start, it was pretty for the hometown team. About mid-way through the first quarter, the Bears special teams unit got on the board, courtesy of a Corey Wooten touchdown…

Tennessee Titans must establish the pass, then focus on the run game to beat Indianapolis Colts

Oct 27, 2012

For just the second time this season, running back Chris Johnson rushed for over 100 yards in a game and it was just the fourth time in seven games that he led the Tennessee Titans in rushing. Johnson rushed for 195 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns in Sunday’s win over the Buffalo Bills to send the Titans to 3-4 on the season. And don’t look now, but Johnson is prepped to face an Indianapolis Colts team that ranks No. 26 in run defense and one that hasn’t won a road game in their previous 10 tries. “We have…

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson hopeful for a run-in with DeJon Gomes, flashback to ACL injury

Oct 13, 2012

Revenge is an unfortunate thing that some pursue when they feel wronged or hurt. In the case of Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings, having a chance to find S DeJon Gomes of the Washington Redskins on Sunday may make revenge the term that is running through people’s minds. On December 24 of last year, Peterson went down with an ACL injury that gave him roughly eight months of frustration and rehab. He would overcome all expectations  to return in time for the regular season in 2012. Some might say it is one of the quickest and impressive recoveries for…

Titans catch a few much needed breaks in win over Steelers

Oct 12, 2012

It was one of those games where everything went just right for the hometown Tennessee Titans. In the first quarter Rob Bironas‘ field goal bounced off the left upright and in. At the beginning of the second quarter, special teams captain Tim Shaw blocked a punt, which lead to the Titans’ first rushing touchdown of the year (thanks to Jamie Harper that is). And in the fourth quarter, receiver Kenny Britt tipped a pass in the air, before gaining his balance and catching it just before receiving a hit from a Pittsburgh defenseman. It all just worked in Tennessee’s favor Thursday night, when the Titans desperately needed…

Chris Johnson’s comments on Tennessee Titans necessary for progress to be made

Oct 11, 2012

Someone had to say it, and unfortunately it was the guy that casts the biggest dark cloud over the Tennessee Titans roster. Chris Johnson, the man who signed for $53 million last offseason and has racked up a grand total of 210 yards on 73 attempts through five games, called out his teammates through the media in the boldest fashion possible following yet another double-digit loss. “I don’t believe we’re close right now. You look at the games and how we’re playing, we don’t look like a good team. I wouldn’t sit here and say we’re close,” Johnson said. “We…
