Josh Malone Among Players Looking to Make Impression in Titans Summer Camp

 

Can’t be fun going through OTA’s and mini-camps for the Titans right now with the temperature hovering around 100 degrees.
You know you’re gonna sweat…a lot, but for some offensive players, you can’t let’em see you sweat under the pressure of making the team.

The Titans signed former Vols receiver Josh Malone in February, and he’s digging his return to the Volunteer State.
Said Malone:”It’s always special to put Tennessee across your chest you know being a former Vol.”
Malone entered the NFL in 2017, but he has just 11 career receptions for 91 yards.
Said Malone:”Hopefully I can show I can make some plays. Stretch the field, and I can get open and just contribute on offense and just be a team guy.”
Tennessee signed running back Dontrell Hillyard in October when Derrick Henry was injured.
Hillyard seized his time to shine with 350 yards rushing on 56 carries.
Said Hillyard:”I just want to be me. Carve out my role. Show the team that I can be that guy that they can depend on and trust.”
Then there’s rookie tight end Chig Okonkwo. He oozes talent, but it’s a matter of getting comfortable.
Said Okonkwo:”Because in the NFL, you’re not going to get open enough on physical ability anymore. It’s a lot of mental. Lot of mental games go into it disguising defenses and stuff. Certain routes have certain defenses. Just being able to learn all those things and just work through them and just try to help me become a better player.”
As far as new linemen go, head coach Mike Vrabel say their status should be answered in training camp.
Said Vrabel:”We’ll identify guys that we think have a potential to help us, but then once we get to training camp and the pads come on, there’s always those guys that end up just surprising you.”
