Predicting the Titans roster prior to final cut downs has been a tradition here. So while we don’t write much on them anymore here is our very bad #TAEK on the “final” 53 just prior to the Tuesday cut down date.
Predicting the roster was hard because the Titans are in the middle of yet another rebuild but there is hope they have the right man in new General Manager Jon Robinson. Head coach Mike Mularkey hasn’t seen a ton of success in the NFL but one could argue he hasn’t been given a ton of tools to help him either.
Regardless, the Titans play in the pre-season has shown signs of improvement particularly on offense where predicting was a lot easier than the defense. Having said that, this year is one of the rare times I agree with putting 3 QBs on the roster.
On defense, the Titans could look to the waiver wire after other teams make their cuts to finalize some areas particular among the secondary. While DL and LB look strong, I wouldn’t rule out any moves there either. There are bound to be good players released in the upcoming days.
Without further ado here are our predictions:
