Part one has been somewhat relieved by me reading that Jason Jones is back in practice and will play tomorrow night.
Part two will be about what has to be the Titan franchise’s Achilles heel. The wideout position. Derrick Mason is the only Titan wideout to make the Pro Bowl, and he was a kick returner.
Do we have 2000 words to talk about Titan misfortunes with free agent wideouts? Yancey Thigpen and Carlos Pickens were big failures. David Givens ended his career with a knee injury. Nate Washington signed with the Titans, hoping to finally break through as a starter. He injured his hamstring and might not play in the opener.
Starters could be Justin Gage and Kenny Britt. Britt overcame some hamstring issues of his own. Depth is shallow. Lavelle Hawkins hasn’t showed much other than choosing Tyrone Calico’s number. Paul Williams hasn’t been worth the third-round pick in 2007. Dominique Edison is a rookie who played for Stephen F Austin last year. That’s why Matt Jones is in town.
At least Justin McCareins isn’t visiting.
