 Latest Titans Player Notes
Jun 19 2017 - Eric Decker
  WR Eric Decker officially signed a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans on Monday, calling the union with the team a "perfect storm." Decker, 30, has owned a home in the Nashville area since 2012 with his wife, country music star Jesse James Decker. The former New York Jets and Denver Broncos receiver agreed to terms with the Titans on Sunday night.


Jun 18 2017 - Eric Decker
  WR Eric Decker reached agreement with the Tennessee Titans on a one-year deal, multiple media outlets reported Sunday. Decker lives in Nashville in the offseason with his wife, country music star Jesse James Decker. Decker was released by the New York Jets on Monday, and two days later he visited with Titans officials. He played only three games last season before going on injured reserve in October, recording only nine receptions in 2016. Decker has undergone surgery on both his hip and his shoulder in the past nine months.


Jun 12 2017 - Eric Decker
  WR Eric Decker was released after the Jets were unable to facilitate a trade involving the 30-year-old wide receiver. Decker had two years and $14.75 million remaining on his five-year, $36.3 million contract, none of it guaranteed. His remaining cap charges will be spread over two years, $1.5 million in 2017 and $1.5 million in 2018. General manager Mike Maccagnan indicated last week that Decker no longer fit their plans.


Jun 8 2017 - Tajae Sharpe
  WR Tajae Sharpe, the second-year wide receiver of the Tennessee Titans, is recovering from last week's foot surgery. Sharpe, 22, is expected to be ready for training camp, coach Mike Mularkey noted. Sharpe reeled in 41 receptions for 522 yards and two scores last season.


Jun 8 2017 - DeMarco Murray
  RB DeMarco Murray is sporting a cast on his right hand, but coach Mike Mularkey didn't appear to be too concerned on Thursday. "DeMarco had a little hand procedure. He should be ready to go," Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey said of the 29-year-old Murray, who has been dealing with a nagging injury to his ring finger for nine months. "He wants to work next week, I'll see. But he should be out of the cast Monday. If not he'll be ready for camp, obviously." Murray recorded 293 carries for an AFC-best 1,287 yards and nine touchdowns last season while Sharpe reeled in 41 receptions for 522 yards and two scores.


May 31 2017 - Taywan Taylor
  WR Taywan Taylor of Western Kentucky continues to turn heads with his shiftiness on the practice field as a slot receiver and his ability to quickly pick up the playbook. While Taylor is playing the position (slot) and wearing the number (13) of his predecessor, Kendall Wright, Taylor is showing a toughness and a buy-in factor that often seemed to be missing from Wright's game his final couple of seasons in Tennessee.


May 31 2017 - Jonnu Smith
  TE Jonnu Smith continues to get better as he tries to claim the role as the second tight end opposite Delanie Walker. Smith, a third-round pick from Florida International, had one of his best days on Wednesday. "It was probably the best day he's had. He's smart," Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. Mularkey credited Smith and rookie receiver Taywan Taylor with quickly picking up the Titans' offensive system during OTA work. "We've have a lot of offense in right now and I know they're studying," Mularkey said. "When they leave here, they're still thinking about football, and it shows."


May 31 2017 - Derrick Henry
  RB Derrick Henry caused a bit of a stir when he missed the first few days of the offseason and did not call the Titans to explain his absence. Technically, since offseason work is voluntary until mandatory mini-camps later this month, Henry was under no obligation to inform the Titans of his whereabouts. It turns out that the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner was back in Tuscaloosa, Ala., taking classes toward his degree at the University of Alabama. "We had a couple of guys graduate this offseason and if that's what he's working for, then I'm all for it," Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. Asked if Henry could have quieted the matter of his absence by simply placing a phone call to him, Mularkey said yes. But he added that, "He's a quiet guy. He doesn't say a whole lot of anything. I think he understands that better now." There are no qualms about how Henry has performed since arriving or any questions about his conditioning. "I think he's looked great. I saw a lot of video of him working out at Alabama," Mularkey said.


May 31 2017 - Corey Davis
  WR Corey Davis has been limited to mostly individual work because he is coming off ankle surgery from before the Titans drafted him in the first round last April. However, Davis is getting closer to being able to add to his workload, according to Mike Mularkey. "Corey hasn't practiced much, hasn't done anything competitively yet. We're hoping to start him next week," Mularkey said.


May 30 2017 - Eric Decker
  WR Eric Decker wasn't at practice Tuesday. Bowles deployed his usual answer when asked about Decker's absence, noting, once again, that the practices are voluntary and players don't have to explain themselves if they are not present. Decker is recovering from hip and shoulder surgeries, but his absence is at least somewhat noteworthy considering he was present and wearing a red non-contact jersey last week. He said earlier this month he expects to be ready for training camp, though Decker is still a candidate to be cut by the rebuilding Jets. If Decker remains, he'll be the number one receiver by default for a team that has only two wideouts (Quinton Patton and Quincy Enunwa) with more than two years of NFL experience. --The Jets' hopes of finding a reliable kick and punt returner took a hit when rookie free agent Brisly Estime was waived with the injured designation last Thursday after suffering a torn Achilles tendon. Estime had already impressed Jets special teams coach Brant Boyer, who lauded his speed and ability to "stretch- and-cut" while running. A Jets player has not returned a kickoff or punt for a touchdown in the last four seasons. Their top incumbent at returner, Jalin Marshall, will serve a four-game suspension at the beginning of the season for a violation of the NFL's PED policies.


May 23 2017 - Adoree Jackson
  CB Adoree' Jackson, one of the Tennessee Titans' two first-round draft picks this year, has agreed to a four-year deal with a team option for a fifth season, the Titans announced Tuesday. Jackson was the 18th overall pick. Under the NFL rookie wage scale, the total value of Jackson's deal is worth up to $11.3 million, with a $6.3 million signing bonus, per Sportac. Jackson won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's top collegiate cornerback last season while at USC. Jackson returned four kickoffs for touchdowns and four punts for touchdowns during his college career.


May 12 2017 - Brandon Burks
  RB Brandon Burks of Troy suffered a left knee injury during rookie mini-camp Friday. Burks was taking part in the camp on a tryout basis. He had to be carted to the locker room with the injury. His status was not immediately known.


May 12 2017 - Marcus Mariota
  QB Marcus Mariota's recovery is still on track, the Titans say, despite the fact that he has yet to do any full speed running. Coach Mike Mularkey downplayed the need for Mariota to do so this early in the offseason, now 4 1/2 months removed from surgery on his broken right fibula that required a plate to be inserted into the leg. "He's jogging right now. It's still early. It's mid-May, so there's no rush to do it," Mularkey said of Mariota running full speed.


May 12 2017 - Corey Davis
  WR Corey Davis revealed that Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was his favorite NFL quarterback. On Friday at the rookie mini-camp, Davis finally got to meet Mariota at St. Thomas Sports Park. "We talked about his road to recovery and his ankle and how that's doing a lot better. We talked about the future and how we're both excited," Davis said of the conversation. "I'm still a big fan. That hasn't changed. He's a great guy, very humble, and I'm looking forward to working with him." When asked if he would try to secure a Mariota autograph, Davis smiled and replied, "Of course."


May 12 2017 - Sebastian Tretola
  OL Sebastian Tretola and WR Tajae Sharpe are being investigated for a possible assault of a man on the first night of the NFL Draft. Dante R. Satterfield filed a civil lawsuit against the two players, claiming he was beaten by Sharpe as Tretola served as a lookout. People are investigating the incident. In the suit, Satterfield said he suffered broken bones in his face, massive bruising, a concussion and a perforated eardrum among other injuries.

In the suit, Satterfield said he suffered broken bones in his face, massive bruising, a concussion and a perforated eardrum among other injuries.


Mar 10 2017 - Anthony Fasano
  TE Anthony Fasano, who previously played for the Dolphins from 2008 to 2012, signed a one-year deal with Miami on Thursday. The 11-year veteran has also played for the Dallas Cowboys (2006-07), Kansas City Chiefs (2013-14) and Tennessee Titans (2015-16). He has 287 career receptions for 3,171 yards and 35 touchdowns. Fasano, who turns 33 next month, caught 177 passes for 2,104 yards and 23 touchdowns during his first stint with Miami.


Mar 2 2017 - Matt Cassel
  QB Matt Cassel agreed to terms on a contract extension Thursday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team for the 34-year-old Cassel, who will return to Tennessee for a second season. Cassel is expected to receive plenty of reps during on-field work in May as fellow quarterback Marcus Mariota recovers from a broken leg.


Mar 1 2017 - Kevin Dodd
  OLB Kevin Dodd, whose rookie season was ruined by a foot injury sustained in May, is trying to work his way back. He landed on injured reserve in the middle of last season due to his inability to work through the pain following surgery to have a screw inserted into his fifth metatarsal bone. "He had an outstanding rookie camp when he came in," Titans GM Jon Robinson said. "He's long, he's got a good first step, he's a powerful guy, and then he had the foot thing and it just never really got back to normal. He's working hard to get back out there. He's another young, talented outside linebacker for us who can play in the run game and rush the passer. So we're looking forward to having him back."


Mar 1 2017 - Anthony Fasano
  TE Anthony Fasano is in discussions about a possible return to the Titans. Fasano, who took over as the team's primary blocking tight end a year ago, is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 9, barring an extension. Fasano caught eight passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns last season. He joined the Titans in 2015 as a free agent from the Kansas City Chiefs. Upon Fasano's arrival in Tennessee, Mike Mularkey, now the head coach, was his position coach.


Jan 2 2017 - Rishard Matthews
  WR Rishard Matthews had a strong day to finish his first year with the Titans. He caught nine passes for 114 yards and a touchdown and wound up leading the team with 945 yards receiving and tying tight end Delanie Walker for tops in receptions with 65.


Jan 2 2017 - DeMarco Murray
  RB DeMarco Murray wound up leading the AFC in rushing and finishing third in the league in that category with 1,287 yards this season. Murray had his lowest output of the year in Sunday's finale with just 21 yards on l1 carries said he is planning to rest his injured right foo t and plans to avoid surgery on it if at all possible. He played the final half of the season with a torn plantar plate in his right foot.


Jan 2 2017 - Marcus Mariota
  QB Marcus Mariota, who was at Friday's practice and Sunday's game, will have his scooter-type cart for about eight weeks. It will be that long before Mariota can put weight on his foot again. He underwent surgery on Dec. 28 after breaking his right fibula against Jacksonville.


Jan 2 2017 - Matt Cassel
  QB Matt Cassel was efficient in his only start of the season, hitting on 16 of 26 passes for 150 yards with one touchdown and one interception in leading the Titans to victory with Marcus Mariota on the shelf.


Jan 2 2017 - DeMarco Murray
  RB DeMarco Murray was held to 21 yards on 11 carries but won the AFC rushing title (1,287 yards) over the idle Le'Veon Bell of Pittsburgh.


Jan 2 2017 - Derrick Henry
  RB Derrick Henry got most of the snaps at running back and responded with 65 yards on 15 carries, including a 2-yard touchdown run with 4:44 left in the third quarter for a 21-7 advantage.


Jan 2 2017 - Matt Cassel
  QB Matt Cassel threw for 150 yards and a touchdown as Tennessee led wire-to-wire in a 24-17 win over division champion Houston at Nissan Stadium. Cassel, playing in place of starter Marcus Mariota (broken leg), completed 16 of 26 passes with a tipped-ball interception. He found Rishard Matthews with a 2-yard scoring strike 23 seconds before halftime, giving Tennessee a 14-0 lead.

  CB LeShaun Sims, who was in the concussion protocol from the Jacksonville game, practiced fully for the second straight day Thursday.

  DE Mehdi Abdesmad was placed on injured reserve Wednesday due to a high left ankle sprain.


Dec 29 2016 - DeMarco Murray
  RB DeMarco Murray has 1,266 yards rushing this season, and his acquisition has been an unqualified success. No doubt the Titans would like to get him to 1,300 or even 1,400 yards for the season, if he can have a big day rushing against the Texans.


Dec 29 2016 - Marcus Mariota
  QB Marcus Mariota underwent successful surgery to repair a broken fibula on Wednesday. Mariota will need four to five months of recovery time.

Dec 26 2016 - Matt Cassel
  QB Matt Cassel will get the start for the Titans on Sunday vs. Houston with Mariota out. Cassel has not started a game since last year when he was with the Dallas Cowboys and replaced injured Tony Romo.


Dec 26 2016 - Karl Klug

Dec 26 2016 - Marcus Mariota
  QB Marcus Mariota was just 8-of-20 passing for 99 yards and a touchdown before suffering a broken right fibula late in the third quarter against Jacksonville on Saturday. He will have surgery on Wednesday and will need four to five months of recovery time.


Dec 26 2016 - Marcus Mariota

The second-year quarterback is expected to return in time for offseason organized team activities in May or June.

Dec 22 2016 - Da'Norris Searcy
  S Da'Norris Searcy, who suffered a concussion last Sunday against the Chiefs, has practiced all week and is on track to play Sunday.


Dec 22 2016 - DeMarco Murray
  RB DeMarco Murray ran for 89 yards in the Titans' upset win over the Chiefs, but his fourth-down back-shoulder catch that set up first-and-goal at the 1 might have been his biggest contribution in the game. Titans HEAD coach Mike Mularkey said Murray is the best pass-receiving running back he has ever coached.
