Four of my NFL Nation colleagues were kind enough to share some feedback on how the four most notable former Tennessee Titans are faring with their new teams:
Rich Cimini on Jets running back Chris Johnson:
"He rushed for 63 yards on 10 carries in the second preseason game. Coaches say he has regained his vertical burst, but lateral quickness still not 100 percent coming off January knee surgery. He’s part of 3-man backfield. He feels he'll thrive because the Jets' offense is less predictable than Tennessee’s."
Tania Ganguli on Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick:
"After a lackluster outing in his first preseason game, the Texans were much happier with Fitzpatrick's performance against the Atlanta Falcons this past weekend. He wasn't Tom Brady, but he got the job done. Coach Bill O'Brien said that's how the Texans need him to play."
Nick Wagoner on Rams receiver Kenny Britt:
"Britt has been one of the Rams' three best receivers in camp and has been a pleasant surprise in terms of leading the team's young receiver group. He's been especially helpful for Brian Quick, who is similar in size but needs work on how to use it. Britt is likely to be one of the team's starters when the season opens, though, as always, he needs to produce when the real games begin."
Pat Yasinskas on Buccaneers cornerback Alterraun Verner:
"He missed a ton of camp with a hamstring injury. He went from the third day of camp all the way through the end of camp until Tuesday when he returned to team drills. He’s missed a ton of time and getting used to a new system that’s obviously a problem. He said he’s been getting as many mental reps as he can, but he realizes he needs to get on the field. I don’t think he’ll play in the third preseason game because I don’t think he’s ready. I think they might throw him out there in the fourth game just to test him out."
