The Tennessee Titans have already made cuts to its roster with the likelihood of no preseason looming, which means more tough decisions could be coming.
This could be a difficult month or so for the Tennessee Titans and other NFL teams throughout the league. They’ll have to make decisions on roster cuts without having the opportunity to see players perform throughout the preseason.
The Titans didn’t wait too long to waive its first players. The Titans came into training camp with 87 players, and after day one, the Titans have 81 players on its training camp roster.
Titans team reporter Jim Wyatt reported that the Titans have waived six players, including inside linebacker Nigel Harris, tight end Cole Herdman, running back Shaun Wilson, wide receiver Trevion Thompson, defensive lineman Amani Bledsoe, and guard Zac Kerin.
The Titans will likely have to make at least one more cut to meet the required 80 player roster limit that the NFL and NFLPA agreed to leading up to training camp. The roster limit usually stands at 90 players but is cut down this year due to COVID-19.
The Titans have some time to decide who they will cut to trim the roster size down to 80 as the deadline stands at August 16.
If the Titans didn’t want to cut its roster, they could have kept 87 players on its roster, but they would’ve had to split the team up into two, and that’s something that they clearly didn’t want to do.
It will be interesting to see how the rest of training camp plays out and how it could affect the 2020 season when September comes around.
