Take Two: A new Titans 53-man roster projection as first cuts near

By John Glennon

    The nerves kick into overdrive this week for Titans players on the edges of the roster.

    NFL teams are required to trim their 90-man rosters to 85 by Tuesday afternoon, and then again to 80 by the following Tuesday, Aug. 24. The final cuts – all the way from 80 to 53 – must be announced one week after that, by the afternoon of Aug. 31.

    Who will be left standing when all the decisions are made?

    I took my first stab at the 53-man roster a month ago, well before the Titans had even started training camp.

    But predictably, much has changed since, with injuries, free-agent signings and releases altering the landscape.

    So it’s time for the 53-man roster projection 2.0 which, hard as I tried to fight it, actually includes seven -- seven -- wide receivers. My gut still says that’s simply too many, but it is possible to find use for all of them during a game.

    Anyway, here’s a look at the Titans’ 53-man breakdown, as currently projected:

Position: Quarterback

Making the 53 (2): Ryan Tannehill, Logan Woodside

Comment: Having dispatched challengers like Trevor Siemian . . .
