Nate Washington - #85 - Wide Receiver - 6'1" - 183lbs
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Washington is looking forward to working under the Titans' new head coach, Ken Whisenhunt, who was his offensive coordinator while the two were with the Steelers, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Washington, who caught 58 passes for 919 yards and three TDs this past season, is clearly excited about the team's new offense, which he says "opens up everything." With Kenny Britt no longer in the mix, Washington is joined in the Titans' receiving corps by the likes of Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter, Michael Preston and Marc Mariani. There had been some talk that the 30-year-old Washington might be a candidate to be cut due to his $4.8 million base salary, but it looks like he'll stick around to provide the team with an experienced -- and at times, productive -- pass-catcher to work in tandem with Wright and Hunter.
Kamerion Wimbley - #95 - Defensive End - 6'4" - 258lbs
News: Wimbley agreed to a restructured contract with the Titans on Monday, the Tennessean reports.
Impact: Wimbley's new deal will pay him $9 million over the next three seasons, a significant paycut from the five-year, $35 million contract he signed back in 2012. However, with new coach Ken Whisenhunt expected to install a more suitable 3-4 defensive scheme, Wimbley could boost his salary through incentives. The 30-year-old enjoyed playing as a 3-4 outside linebacker during the first six seasons of his career, a span in which he recorded 42.5 sacks. However, since joining the Titans, Wimbley has managed just nine quarterback takedowns over a two year span.
Leon Washington - #26 - Running back - 5'8" - 192lbs
News: With Chris Johnson out of the picture in Tennessee, Washington joins the likes of Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster and Jackie Battle in the Titans' current backfield mix, the Tennessean reports.
Impact: Of course, given that Washington only recorded one carry in seven 2013 contests, his best chance at making a mark for the Titans this coming season still rests with his ability in the return game.
Jackie Battle - #44 - Running back - 6'2" - 240lbs
News: With Chris Johnson released, Battle joins the likes of Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington in the Titans' current backfield mix, the Tennessean reports.
Impact: With Johnson out of the mix, the report suggests that the Titans could use more of a committee approach, but as the team's backfield is currently composed, Greene would appear to have the edge in garnering the biggest chunk of the team's carries in such a scenario.
Dexter McCluster - #22 - Running back - 5'8" - 170lbs
News: With Chris Johnson now out of the picture, McCluster joins the likes of Shonn Greene, Jackie Battle and Leon Washington in the Titans' current backfield mix, the Tennessean reports.
Impact: Though McCluster operated mostly as a receiver/returner with the Chiefs, the Titans plan to utilize him at running back as well this coming season, the Tennessean notes. In such a capacity, he'll have a chance to contribute to what could evolve into a committee approach for Tennessee.
Adewale Ojomo - #75 - Defensive End - 6'4" - 270lbs
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | STATS
News: The Tennessee Titans have waived defensive end Adewale Ojomo more than two weeks after he was arrested in a prostitution sting. The Titans announced the move Monday afternoon, hours after the team started its offseason program.
Impact: Ojomo had joined the Titans' practice squad in December after stints with the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and on the practice squads in Seattle and Buffalo last fall. He was booked March 21 in Miami on a charge of soliciting a prostitute after police say Ojomo offered the undercover detective $100 for sex. The police report said Ojomo was planning to go to a nearby store for condoms but was arrested before he could drive away.
Shonn Greene - #23 - Running back - 5'11" - 233lbs
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Following the release of Chris Johnson, Greene is in line to see an expanded role for the Titans this coming season, the Tennessean reports.
Impact: While the likes of Dexter McCluster, Jackie Battle, and Leon Washington are also on hand and the Titans could well add additional backfield depth in the draft, Greene, who was limited to 77 carries for 295 yards and four touchdowns in 11 games this past season, figures to have the edge emerging as the Titans' top back as the 2014 season approaches. Johnson was given 279 carries this past season and that's the sort of workload Greene has seen as recently as 2012, when he logged 276 carries for 1,063 yards with the Jets.
Eric Olsen - #66 - Guard - 6'3" - 305lbs
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | STATS
News: Tennessee signed Olsen to a one-year deal.
Impact: The 25-year-old Olsen played 16 games and made four starts in 2012 with the New Orleans Saints. After the Saints cut him last September, Olsen spent the final month of the 2013 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Chris Spencer - #60 - Guard - 6'3" - 308lbs
Wed. Apr 2, 2014 | STATS
News: The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with Spencer on a one-year contract.
Impact: Spencer played in all 16 games for the Titans last season and made one start at center on Dec. 1 against the Indianapolis Colts. The 32-year-old Spencer has played 121 games in his nine-year career. He's made 63 starts at center and 27 starts at guard.
