    Someone will probably send me a link of this already being posted but if not here it is for what its worth.

    Tyler Wilson is as a good as cut most likely anyways with Locker and Whitehurst in place; They rather see Mett in action than Tyler Wilson im sure.

    Tommie Campbell though (the speedster) I thought was supposed to have a bigger role on the team this year - not just on special teams. With McCluster, Washington and Mariani able to do the KO/PR duties, I wonder if Campbell will even make the roster now. Wasn't particularily thrilled with the depth at corner anyways without Verner, but it sounds like it could get a little thinner.

    From what I have been reading, Campbell is as good as gone and won't be missed. Just add him to the list of Titans that had the talent, but never materialized.

    As for Wilson. He was never a Titan, as far as I'm concerned. If he couldn't make the Raiders squad, he damn sure is done.

    Sounds about right. Wilson is just "an arm" in camp at this point while Campbell showed some glances with some big plays showing off his speed - but sounds like that won't be enough to cut it.

    He didn't think wrong at all. Our #2 CB spot was up for grabs in the biggest way possible. Campbell had his chance to grab that spot, or at least get a lot of playing time. So it wasn't far fetched at all for Campbell to have a bigger role this year.

    Huff and Sensabaugh as depth but eh if Wreh-Wilson isn't ready to be a starter not sure how teams arn't going to pass all over the field. Im actually excited to see the run game and how they mix players around but these corners are going to be the question mark for sure

    Are you telling me Campbell never had a shot at grabbing the #2 CB spot? Tell me who is actually superior to him on the squad.

    Tick tick tick.

    After McCourty it did seem pretty wide open. Obviously Wreh-Wilson would be ideal as a big bodied corner on the side of McCourty but with Campbell's speed I assume there was at least "a shot" for him to play inside as the nickel or something similiar covering smaller slot WR's- it's not like the Titans have an abundance of corners with tons of experience after McCourty.

    Campbell never had a chance playing in the slot. Way too big and isnt shifty enough to play any slot WRs.
