First Titans presser is finished
Welcome back to my screen coach Mike Mularkey. For all of the flack I gave him years ago, it’s odd how excited I got to see the presser today. Tennessee Titans football is back!
Let’s get right to what I think could be huge.
Mularkey said that if there is something the Titans aren’t good at, then they’re not going to push it or force it. (Some press rumbling couldn’t hear) Then he said, “Supernaw could have a big role or we’ll have to find something else for him to do.”

As we’ve spoken about all offseason, this is the first time in “forever” that the Titans don’t have the top blocking tight end in football. Mularkey loves the three tight end and two tight end sets, but do they have the roster to pull that off? I think he just conceded that they will try it out with Supernaw, but then switch to a common three wide receiver or pro set if that doesn’t work out. Good luck to Supernaw, but I don’t think he is one of the best blocking tight ends in football.
Kudos to Mularkey here. This is against his favorite style and even the position he used to play. In Buffalo and Jacksonville, a younger Mularkey would have shoved a square peg into a round hole here. There’s a maturity to this decision that I think Mularkey really needs to be applauded for.
Kevin Dodd is cleared.
Karl Klug is not going on PUP. He could practice if they let him.
He wouldn’t speak on Corey Davis until he misses a practice…which could be tomorrow. I still think Corey would be foolish to hold out and don’t expect it.
Jurrell Casey got an extension and is a rare (missed this word) that deserves one even with two years left on his contract.
Eric Decker will start as a slot guy and backup Z. The Z is Matthews. As far as Taywan Taylor, that could mean he is starting in Corey Davis’ spot or as Decker’s backup. We can guess or just wait til tomorrow.
Sebastian Tretola was waived and Mularkey said he made some poor decisions. This was expected and a minimal comment from the coach. He also said that Tretola couldn’t practice with a gunshot wound. I sure hope they don’t have an injury waive complaint from Tretola now. Technically teams can’t cut an injured player but must have an injury settlement. Good luck elsewhere, Sebastian.
When he spoke of Tajae Sharpe, it seemed like he appreciated his apologetic nature and the way he’s responded to his incident.
