Five Things We’ve Learned About the Titans This Week

By John Glennon

Half a decade into Jon Robinson’s tenure as Titans general manager, we can safely this about him: He’s going to get his swings in.

Whether it’s making trades, signing free agents or releasing veterans, Robinson has shown – almost from Day One in the job – that he’s an enthusiastic player.

Things have been typically lively on Robinson’s watch since the NFL’s new year began Monday, as the Titans have – so far – added edge rusher Bud Dupree, defensive lineman Denico Autry, cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Kevin Johnson, tackle Kendall Lamm and long snapper Morgan Cox among others. They’ve re-signed Jayon Brown and tackle Ty Sambrailo, along with tight ends Anthony Firkser and Geoff Swaim.

And they’ve said goodbye to plenty of players recently as well, a group that includes cornerbacks Adoree Jackson and Malcolm Butler, safety Kenny Vaccaro, edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney, defensive linemen DaQuan Jones and Jack Crawford, wide receivers Corey Davis and Adam Humphries, tight ends Jonnu Smith and MyCole Pruitt, cornerback Desmond King, tackles Dennis Kelly and Isaiah Wilson, and kicker Stephen Gostkowski among others.


The next few days still hold the possibility of more movement, but let’s take a brief pause and survey the new landscape.

Here are five things we’ve learned about the Titans so far this week:
