Where Are They Now? More Than 30 Players From 2020 Titans Moved On

Half will enter the 2021 regular season without a job. Jadeveon Clowney, Jonnu Smith, Corey Davis, Adoreé Jackson  and others will be starters for new teams.

Where did they all go?

The question can be asked every year of teams including the Tennessee Titans, as significant roster turnover is a well-established tradition in the NFL.

Sometimes that means the end of long-lasting ties. Sometimes it is the end of a relationship that had barely begun.

With the start of the regular season just over a week away, we decided to look at where they’ve all gone – all of the 2020 Titans who took snaps for the team but are no longer on the roster heading into 2021.

A total of 37 players fit that definition, per Pro Football Reference.

Here’s the short breakdown: Eight of the 37 – wide receivers Corey Davis, Adam Humphries and Kalif Raymond; tight end Jonnu Smith; cornerback Adoree Jackson; defensive lineman DaQuan Jones; outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney; and long snapper Matt Overton – are projected starters for their respective new teams.

Three more are back-ups, three are on practice squads, two are injured reserve, one is on the reserve/retired list, one has retired, and 19 are unrestricted free agents who are currently unsigned.

Here’s a closer player-by-player look at the status of the dearly departed Titans who took snaps for the team in 2020 (based on team’s unofficial depth charts or other reputable depth charts):
