- Friday, August 11, 2017
The Titans have been searching for years for an answer at cornerback. They think they found two answers during the offseason.

- Friday, January 20, 2017
Now that the NFL playoffs are down to four teams remaining, it is easy to point out the common thread among them: Elite play at the quarterback position.
