The Tennessee Titans trimmed their roster down to 53 players from the original 75 players, which meant a lot of key decisions were made. Last Friday, tight end Chase Coffman showed why he deserved a spot on an already deep tight end roster. Antonio Andrews showed that he is ready for the big stage, and not settled with being ‘next up.’ Also, Blidi Wreh-Wilson showed anyone that questioned his ability to return at a high level, that they were totally wrong.

The Tennessee Titans cut some key players from the 75 man roster. One of the victims was veteran wide-out Hakeem Nicks. Nicks played very well throughout the preseason but fell victim to the numbers game. Nicks, will look to sign with the Titans with a lower value contract after the season begins.
