    SUMMARY: Middle Tennessee State product Keon Raymond is developing a good habit at Titans training camp. The undrafted free agent rookie corner is averaging one interception a day and is getting noticed. "He’s making nearly an interception a day, which is what you look for if you come in as an undrafted free agent," Coach Jeff Fisher said. "If you want to get someone’s attention, that’s what you need to do, and that’s what he’s done." In one-on-one drills in Tuesday afternoon’s practice, Raymond, a 5-9, 190-pounder took an interception away from fellow MTSU product Tyrone Calico in the end zone, despite giving away six inches in height. "You’ve got to make plays out here if you want to stay, and I really want to be on this team," Raymond said. "This is a dream come true to even be out here, and if they say you’ve got to make plays and be by the ball, that’s what I’m going to do."

    Keep it up and he may be a surprise to make the final cut.

    Well there is Pacman, Hill, Woolfolk, possibly Gardner. Waddell is out for awhile.
    Who else is there?

    I think we'll see a waiver wire addition or a cheaper free agent in the mix at some point.

    I hope so, as i said in the other post, we are very thin at corner.

    Sounds to me like he makes the team if he keeps it up. Only drawback- doesn't sound like he is a special teams force. I agree he'll probably wind up on the practice squad.

    Don't forget Cortland Finnegan. I think they'll use him at corner. I think Fuller may also get some work out there as well.

    Reese will be all over the waiver wires after the cuts this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see him bring in a couple CBs depending on how the preseason shakes out.
