That means there could be seven wideouts competing for a single roster spot. The group includes Arrelious Benn, Tony Washington, Rasheed Bailey, Rashad Lawrence, Jamal Robinson, Shaq Evans and Shane Wynn.
If one of those players was going to emerge, O’Halloran points to Benn. The former second-round pick was set to earn a roster spot last season before breaking his collarbone.
“He’s a big, strong, physical guy,” receivers coach Jerry Sullivan told O’Halloran. “He should be a top-notch special teams guy and be a dependable guy who can come in and be a relief pitcher.”
Let’s take a look at some other notes from the AFC South…
- Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap.com says Jurrell Casey‘s four-year, $36MM ($13MM guaranteed) is the best contract on the Titans. The defensive end finished last season with seven sacks. On the flip side, Fitzgerald writes that running back DeMarco Murray‘s four-year, $23.75MM contracts ($9MM guaranteed) is the worst on the team.
- Several of the Titans‘ offseason additions should benefit quarterback Marcus Mariota, writes ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky. The team added a pair of running backs (Murray and rookie Derrick Henry), a pair of wideouts (Rishard Matthews and rookie Tajae Sharpe), offensive lineman Jack Conklin, and offensive line coach (and Hall of Famer) Russ Grimm.
- Andrew Luck‘s extension was the Colts‘ best offseason moves, writes Kevin Bowen of Colts.com. Some of the organization’s other top transactions included drafting center Ryan Kelly, extending tight end Dwayne Allen, signing cornerback Patrick Robinson, and hiring assistant head coach Joe Philbin.
