Mike Herndon: What To Expect From The Titans' Defense In 2023

By MIKE HERNDON, columnist

NASHVILLE. Tenn. -- It feels like we’ve spent 99.9 percent of the offseason discussing the Titans’ offense, and rightfully so.

After all, that’s the side of the ball that has seen its line completely overhauled, experienced near-constant debate about whether Ryan Tannehill and/or Derrick Henry should be traded, and had a young quarterback drafted for a second straight offseason. Not to mention a change in coordinator, large shake-up to the rest of the offensive staff, and the endless discussion about its lack of reinforcement at wide receiver.

There is a lot to talk about on offense.

By comparison, the Tennessee defense has had a rather boring offseason. The Titans extended Jeffery Simmons with very little drama and figure to have at least seven returning starters beginning the 2023 season in the same spot that they started the 2022 season.

That’s not to say that there have been no changes though.
