Titans Public Practice Tonight at Nissan
Because of lightning Saturday night, Titans Coach Mularkey was forced to cancel the public practice at Nissan Stadium. According to Titan Insider Terry McCormick , that practice has been moved to tonight from St. Thomas to Nissan.
Can Blidi Brew-Wilson Take Advantage of A Fresh Start ?
For three years now, Blidi Wreh-Wilson has been one of the most maligned players on the Tennessee Titans roster.
In fact, one play by the 2013 third-round pick two years ago became the symbolic portrait of the franchise’s failures in recent years. It was the play in Cincinnati where Wreh-Wilson had a choice on a trick play by the Bengals, a wide receiver pass back to quarterback Andy Dalton.
Wreh-Wilson could wait back and intercept the wobbly pass from Mohamed Sanu, which probably would have been a pick-six; or he could wait for the ball to get to Dalton and take a free shot at the Bengals quarterback without any repercussions or penalties.
Instead, Wreh-Wilson got caught in between and indecisive. The floating football landed in Dalton’s hands for a Cincinnati touchdown, and Wreh-Wilson seemingly became cursed to many times surrendering big plays in subsequent situations after that.
Entering the final year of his rookie contract,Wreh-Wilson finds himself in an uphill fight just to keep his roster spot with the Titans. But the fourth-year cornerback has bought into the “fresh start” new coach Mike Mularkey offered returning players, and the result has been a more confident and improved player in the first week of training camp.
DGB, Hunter Need Consistency
In his four years with the Tennessee Titans, the one thing Justin Hunter has been is consistently inconsistent.
He admits it, and Coach Mike Mularkey knows it as well.
Asked what he needs to show the Titans in camp and preseason, Hunter said, “Consistency. That’s what they want to see. Being aggressive attacking the ball and everything like that. I think if I just keep those two keys with me, I’ll be all right.”
With the addition of veteran Andre Johnson to the receiver room, Hunter now finds himself running with the third team when he gets on the field. But he is trying not to let that affect him.
Another Titans receiver is also battling inconsistency as well. Dorial Green-Beckham, who has been running as a second-team wideout, has also been up-and-down during camp thus far.
“He is like you’ve seen out here. He’s had some really good days, and some days not so good,” Mularkey explained. “Today was another one where I thought he could have stepped up and had another solid day, especially in the two-minute drill where we needed a big play. He needs to make a play. Again, we’re going to keep challenging guys, keep giving them opportunities and see where it goes.”
