Tennessee Titans
INSIDE SLANT

  Inside Slant | Notes, Quotes | Strategy and Personnel | Player Wire

  The Titans have been at the bottom for a while, so it is no surprise that changes are abounding as the 2016 season approaches.

After winning only five games total over the last two seasons, Tennessee is starting fresh with a new general manager in Jon Robinson an a somewhat new head coach in Mike Mularkey, who had the interim tag removed from his status after taking the team over in the middle of last season.

There are plenty of changes in terms of personnel and philosophy already for the Titans, who must rebuild their offensive line and say they want to re-establish an identity by running the football. To that end, they drafted tackle Jack Conklin to play right tackle and signed Ben Jones to play center. They also traded for running back DeMarco Murray and drafted Heisman winner Derrick Henry.

Those moves send the message that the Titans want to run the football and be a tough, physical team. But the changes which start with Robinson coming in and showing decisiveness are part of a bigger culture change within the organization.

The Titans believe they can build around quarterback Marcus Mariota to eventually become a contender, but not nearly all the pieces are in place.

However, Robinson's first draft class and the acquisitions of veteran players like Jones and Murray have at least fostered a belief that the Titans are finally headed back in the right direction.

The entire off-season, OTAs and mini-camp have been geared toward that goal both on the field and in the locker room, and Mularkey said he expects that to continue when training camp opens.

"We've had a good offseason," Mularkey said. "I'd like us to not have to take a step back when we get in here in training camp. I'd like to no less than take a step forward the first day we get back." Mularkey said.
