The Titans have agreed to terms with 14 undrafted rookies, who will take part in this week’s rookie mini-camp and hope to compete for a roster spot in training camp and preseason.
The position most scrutinized will likely be wide receiver where the Titans waited until the seventh round of the draft to select Colton Dowell. Tennessee’s receiving corps was riddled with injuries and lack of production a year ago.
The Titans have added former Florida and Maryland receiver Jacob Copeland to the roster, as well as Tre’Shaun Harrison, who played at Oregon State. Kearis Jackson of Georgia was also reported to have been signing with the Titans after the draft, but his name was not on the list of signees issued by the club on Friday.
Elsewhere, the Titans have added defensive tackle Shakel Brown of Troy, safeties Matthew Jackson of Eastern Kentucky and Tyreque Jones of Boise State, cornerbacks Steven Jones of Appalachian State, Anthony Kendall of Baldwin Wallace, running back Chuck McClelland of Cincinnati, defensive end T.K. McLendon of Eastern Kentucky and linebackers Caleb Murphy of Ferris State, Thomas Rush of Minnesota and Otis Reese of Ole Miss. The Titans also signed offensive tackle John Ojukwu of Boise State and kicker Trey Wolff to compete with Caleb Shudak to replace veteran Randy Bullock who was released in the off-season.
In addition to those players signed, the Titans also are likely to have some players in on a tryout basis, mostly rookies, but perhaps also others who have bounced around tryout camps or played this spring in the XFL, which is concluding its season this weekend.
