There is still a lot to do before the start of the season in August and the Tennessee Titans are excited to get as many of their weapons prepared as they can. Throughout this week the team has really been testing many guys at many positions, and everyone has their eye on the 20th overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, Kendall Wright.
Wright has been placed in the “X” position for most of the offseason program so far, but Chris Palmer is testing him around the field to see where he best fits, in previous articles I have touched on the fact that the team wants Wright, Kenny Britt and Nate Washington on the field all at the same time. The method behind this madness, according to what Palmer told reporters today, is that he wants to be sure that he has many different threats at many different positions available at any time.
Which completely makes sense, as long as it is going to work. My only concern with this is putting a lot of pressure on these three guys all the time. Argue with me that these guys are professionals, but they get worn out too, they are still human.
Along with making key moves with the receivers, there is along huge hole that the Titans still have to fill, and that is the cornerback position. Now the team has many guys who want to step up to the task of filling in that gap. It’s looking like Jason McCourty is going to end up being the starter, considering he’s the one who split time last year with Cortland Finnegan. But other veterans like Alterraun Verner and Tommie Campbell have also voiced that they want in on the action. I have a feeling, though he is a very talented rookie, that Coty Sensabaugh will not be seeing any playing time. It will be a good one or two years for him to sit back and take some notes.
All the “problems” that the Titans seem to be having, are relatively good problems if you ask me. You have two solid quarterbacks, deep into the bench with receivers and guys just itching to get at the cornerback position. If I were Chris Palmer, or Mike Munchak, I would so far be very satisfied with this offseason.
