Paul Kuharsky Live BroadcastAmong the topics we hit: Elijah Molden's breakout game, how the receivers stack up and Logan Woodside vs. Matt Barkley.

Additionally, we discussed what awaits the Titans with Mike Vrabel out, for at least a couple days, with Covid-19 and we remembered former GM Floyd Reese, who passed away on Saturday.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- When the NFL personnel department watches preseason game film it focuses on players that have a chance to make the roster. Not all 90 players.

Yes, each of the 90 players is graded and evaluated but the focus is really on the five to 10 players that have a chance at the 53-man roster.

Going into each training camp roughly 40 players have a spot on the roster.

The key is to find the other 13.

At this point in the preseason, the coaching staff has defined how many players at each position they are looking for.

What makes the preseason games interesting and exciting is watching players like Mason Kinsey.

Titans 34, Bucs 3: Elijah Molden emerges, QBs rotate, WRs make cases, Ficken hits big and more

TAMPA, Fla. – Elijah Molden’s debut came with some flashes that show why the Titans like the 100th pick in the draft so much. He was the central defensive figure in the Titans’ 34-3 thrashing of the Buccaneers in their second preseason game.

Chris Jackson has been the starting nickel through camp with Molden behind him, and out hurt for a bit.

But Jackson didn’t play against the Buccaneers – he may have gotten hurt in warmups -- and Molden played a lot.

There is a bit of a secret code among old-time employees at Titans’ headquarters. Call someone “Bo,” and you’re in the know. It was Floyd Reese’s catch-all name for everyone.

“Hey Bo,” can still be heard around the team’s MetroCenter campus.

Reese worked for the Oilers and Titans from 1986-2006, the final 13 years as their GM. He passed away Saturday after a battle with esophageal cancer. He was 73.

“He was a football renaissance man,” said Steve Watterson. “No hours too long, no stone too big to look under. He lived it. The only things that mattered in his life that I knew about were football and his family.” [Unlocked]

Titans' mailbag: Evans and Evans, Ficken trending, starting CBs and the best dessert

TAMPA, Fla. -- Greetings from the Sunshine State, where I am wearing two hats to prevent the potential burn of my bald head.

After two days of Titans-Bucs practices but before what is sure to be a riveting preseason game, I've taken on a slew of excellent questions from you and I hope you will conclude I crushed them.

After 16 practices, the Titans have not accessed full offense once

TAMPA, Fla. – Cam Batson split wide opposite Chester Rogers with Jeremy McNichols in the backfield.

Roger Saffold and Ryan Tannehill were the only starters on the field the first time the Titans lined up against the Buccaneers on their second day of joint workouts.

Tennessee was hardly inept.

But that’s not the offense to challenge the reigning Super Bowl champs.

The Titans practiced against the Bucs without Derrick Henry, Julio Jones and A.J. Brown – their hotshot trio of weapons – as well as starters Ben Jones, Nate Davis, Geoff Swaim plus second running back Darrynton Evans and emergent Marcus Johnson.

In all, that is 55 percent of their starting offense.

The Titans have completed the 16 practices listed as their training camp schedule.

Zero of them included all their key offensive personnel.

Titans-Bucs: Caleb Farley, the young WRs and offensive pace

TAMPA, Fla. – The Titans got some great work against the Bucs Wednesday, but it was a practice with less buzz than I expected, with a low-key small crowd of season-ticket holders on fans.

It didn’t help that A.J. Brown and Julio Jones were both out.

Among the things I really noticed: Caleb Farley’s growth and a bad drop day for Tampa Bay, the Bucs offensive pace versus that of their guests, the ability of Marcus Johnson and Chester Rogers to carry over what they’ve been doing to a joint session against the Super Bowl champs and a bad drop day for Tampa Bay.

Farley had three snaps of note in the one-on-ones we could film.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Josh Reynolds’ return from an Achilles injury has been filled with stops and starts more than it's been a gradual ascent.

It’s a path Mike Vrabel said unfolds pretty frequently.

Obviously, with the limited injury information that is shared, it’s hard to know where a guy is, if he is progressing, or if there is a setback.Josh Reynolds Catching A Pass During Titans' Training Camp

But after a nice showing at the Titans’ one open practice of training camp, a Monday evening session at Nissan Stadium, Reynolds said he has good days and bad.
