NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Eleven PSL holders are suing the Titans, alleging that by labeling them as “ticket resellers” the team violated the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act and breached the ticket contract, entitling them to punitive and compensatory damages in amounts that are not spelled out.

“[T]he Titans represented that PSLs had certain characteristics that they did not have,” the suit filed in the chancery court of Tennessee for the 20th judicial district at Nashville reads. “Namely, the right to purchase season tickets at a fair and reasonable rate comparable to similarly situated seats, that the PSL owners had the right to transfer their PSLs and the rights contained within their PSL agreements, and that the PSL owners would be treated fairly and reasonably by the Titans and similarly to other PSL owners.”

The Titans said they cannot comment on active litigation. [Unlocked]

How things could unfold in the draft for the Titans through the eyes of a former scout

By BLAKE BEDDINGFIELD, special contributor

NASHVILLE Tenn. -- The Titans go into the 2021 NFL draft with major need positions that currently lack starting-caliber players. In the upcoming draft, they also have to factor in positions that will be needs in 2022.

The major needs: Starting CB, starting WR, eventual starter at TE, OLB, K.

Depth and future starting spot needs: ILB, DT, CB, S, G, C, T, backup QB.

The Titans need to come out of the draft with two starters and a third player who needs to make a significant impact early in his rookie season.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Count the Titans among the growing list of teams that don’t intend to show up in large numbers in-person for organized team activities during the offseason.

The impetus around the league has been that players don't believe the COVID-19 risks in-person create enough of a benefit for a winning trade-off compared to working on their own in combination with virtual meetings.TitansPAstatement

The missed phases two and phase three can be a setback for young players but showed themselves to be largely unnecessary for quality of overall play when missed last year, along with preseason games, in 2020.

Phase two runs from May 17-21 and includes on-field drills with coaches with no contact and things moving at a teaching pace.

Phases three includes 10 days of OTA practices that go at full speed but include no contact. [Unlocked.]

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee’s high-ranking rookies have regularly missed big chunks of training camp, a trend that has really hurt the team in terms of getting solid first-year contributions.

The Titans need that to stop this summer as their current depth chart has holes in spots that must be filled by players they will draft.

We don’t know how much or how little those guys will be around during the offseason yet, but even if it’s a lot, it’s the training camp-work and preseason snaps that really accelerate a young guy's learning curve.

Here, I outlined just how regularly and how much Titans’ recent first-rounders and high picks have missed.

VrabelPKNASHVILLE, Tenn. – After an ugly defensive year from the Titans, outsiders would expect change.

It’s come in the form of nine players out and six players in so far, as well as the addition of Jim Schwartz as a senior defensive assistant.

In a broadcast chat with members here, Mike Vrabel told us how much, or how little, will come in the form of the actual defense changing.

PKVrabelYouTubeNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Members here got in a lot of good questions with Mike Vrabel Thursday evening, and so did I if I may say.

We covered Jim Schwartz' presence on the staff, Shane Bowen's top coaching qualities, the lack of starting position competition in Titans' recent training camps, Vrabel's vaccination status, his advice to Eddie George on the TSU job, rookie injuries, no individual workouts for draft prospects, opt-outs, Derrick Henry's crazy pushups, his BS detector and his 2021 expectations, among many other topics.

It's easy to see him a bit differently when he's not in press conference mode, and I really appreciate him spending the time with us.

Scout's Take: Titans' draft prospects at tight end and positions of lesser need

By BLAKE BEDDINGFIELD, special contributor

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The current top draft needs for the Tennessee Titans are wide receiver, cornerback, edge pass rusher and tight end.

If those positions are not available at pick No. 22, then the need should not be forced.

Best Player Available will be hard to pass up.

The Titans restructured a big portion of their team this offseason working to address the significant hole at pass rush. They also released players and let others leave in free agency because of salary-cap trouble.

With the free-agent departures and signings the depth chart has taken a different look.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – We have no idea what kind of college head coach Eddie George will be.

We know full well he’s a determined guy who’s taken on a variety of career interests and projects and done well, from a wealth management business to acting on Broadway.

Now he will apply that focus to overseeing the football program at Tennessee State, drawing attention to the Ohio Valley Conference school that it’s not had since its glory years under John Merritt that included seven HBCU national championships spanning from 1965 to 1982. [Unlocked.]
