The Tennessee Titans training camp is quickly approaching and there are a number of players who have a reasonable shot at making the 53-man roster for the 2014 NFL Season. From undrafted rookies to the seasoned veterans, there are a ton of roster spots still up for grabs in Tennessee. Which five have the best chance at clinching one of the final spots?
The Titans have a huge hole to fill as they move on from Rob Bironas. There are only two kickers currently on the roster and Coons is coming off a solid senior year at Washington where he converted on 15-of-16 field goals he attempted, with a long of 48 yards. He will compete with Maikon Bonani, who has never seen action in the NFL either, for the starting spot in training camp.
Robiskie has not seen much action in the NFL over the past few years, but he may have found a place in Tennessee where he can settle in. The Titans have a lot of young talent at WR, but he brings a nice dynamic to the team. He's an intelligent receiver and has great instincts, something that could help him earn one of the final roster spots at the position.
Tennessee will need to have plenty of depth at LB as they are switching to the 3-4 defense. His name may ring a bell, as he was in the news last summer right before training camp started for saving a family from a burning car. This just speaks to the type of character the guy has, and to go along with his football skills, he definitely has a fighting chance of earning a roster spot.
There is not much depth at center for the Titans, and if we look at the past, there have been an unfortunate number of injuries to their centers. It was slightly surprising to see him go undrafted out of Oklahoma so this was a great pick up for Tennessee. He lacks elite athleticism, but the intangibles he possesses could completely overshadow the fact that he is limited physically.
I don't see how the Titans can keep this guy off the roster. He had 3,161 all-purpose yards his senior year, which is good enough for second all-time in FBS history. The only guy ahead of him you may wonder? Well, it's Barry Sanders. Antonio Andrews was a steal as an undrafted free agent, and the Titans hope they struck gold. He likely won't have a huge impact, but he will prove himself if he can get the touches on the field.
