The Tennessee Titans signed some interesting undrafted free agents, but could the Titans have one start for them in 2020?
It’s July, which means we’re only a matter of days before the Tennessee Titans start training camp. The Titans are scheduled to start training camp on July 20, so we’re less than ten days away before the first step towards having an NFL season begins.
Could the Titans luck out and get a gem that’s ready to start this fall? It could be wishful thinking, but I think it could happen.
You should keep an eye on is the Titans’ kicking situation. As you may know, the Titans had some kicking issues throughout the 2019 season and were unable to find a consistent kicker. The front office made sure to address that by signing an undrafted free agent to add to the kicking competition.
Former Missouri kicker, Tucker McCann, signed with the Titans after the draft and he’s one of the more exciting players that I want to see during training camp.
Missouri classifies McCann as a do-it-all specialist, which is exactly what the Titans could use. He made 16-of-22 field goals throughout the 2019 season and 32-of-34 PATs totaling 82 points on the season. He also finished his career four points shy of Missouri’s all-time points record with a grand total of 358 points.
Against Southeast Missouri, McCann had four 50+-yard punts and three 40+-yard field goals which were the first time this century that an NCAA Division I kicker had done that.
McCann is a very talented kicker and the Titans might have found a diamond in the rough. If he can translate his success into the NFL, then he could very well hang around and compete for the starting job.
He’s going to have to do very well in training camp to earn his spot on the roster for preseason and the regular season since he is an undrafted free agent. The spot for starting kicker seems to be wide open, so if he wants the starting job, then he has the opportunity to go get it.
