The Tennessee Titans finished last season with a 7-9 record, good for a second-place finish in the AFC South but not good enough for the postseason. Starting quarterback Jake Locker appeared in portions of only seven games during an injury-plagued season.
The offense struggled throughout the year, with the Titans only ranked finishing only 19th in the NFL in scoring at 22.6 points per game.
During the offseason, the Titans lost star cornerback Alterraun Verner and longtime running back Chris Johnson. However, Tennessee selected former Washington RB Bishop Sankey in the NFL draft; the team also fortified its offensive line with the selection of Taylor Lewan in the first round as well as the signing of former Ravens tackle Michael Oher.
