The Tennessee Titans‘ 2021 preseason is in the books, which means it’s a good time to take one final look at how the team’s final 53-man roster figures to shake out.

NFL teams will have to trim their rosters from 80 to 53 players on Tuesday.

NOTE: The Titans have a handful of players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list that could delay the shaping of their final 53-man roster. This is how the group figures to look once the team’s coronavirus dust settles.

Notable Cuts

  • OLB Derick Roberson
  • WR Racey McMath
  • WR Mason Kinsey
  • WR Cameron Batson
  • QB Matt Barkley
  • RB Mekhi Sargent
  • LB Nick Dzubnar
  • S Brady Breeze
  • S Dane Cruikshank

Quarterback (2)

  • Ryan Tannehill
  • Logan Woodside

Woodside is more reliable than Matt Barkley, who threw an erratic interception in the Titans’ preseason finale on Saturday. Woodside has clearly improved over the last year, and the Titans trust him.

Running Back (4)

  • Derrick Henry
  • Darrynton Evans
  • Jeremy McNichols
  • Khari Blasingame

Mekhi Sargent made a good case for himself during the preseason, but he’s likely destined for the practice squad. McNichols’ prowess as a pass protector gives him the edge.

Wide Receiver (7)

  • Julio Jones
  • A.J. Brown
  • Josh Reynolds
  • Marcus Johnson
  • Chester Rogers
  • Nick Westbrook-Ikhine
  • Dez Fitzpatrick (R)

Man, this was tough.

Fitzpatrick has shown enough over the last couple of weeks to get a chance to stick around. Racey McMath disappeared after the first few days of camp, and he’ll likely be subject to waivers.

Cameron Batson made a good case for himself in the Titans’ preseason finale, but Westbrook-Ikhine has the edge over him because of special teams.

Tight End (4)

  • Anthony Firkser
  • Geoff Swaim
  • Tommy Hudson
  • Luke Stocker

Hudson is clearly the Titans’ preferred No. 3 tight end; he’s gotten a lot of opportunities in camp with Geoff Swaim not practicing. Stocker figures to make the cut after returning to the Titans early in camp.

Offensive Tackle (5)

  • Taylor Lewan
  • Ty Sambrailo
  • Dillon Radunz (R)
  • Kendall Lamm
  • David Quessenberry

Radunz, once thought to be competing for the starting right tackle job, clearly has a ways to go in his development, but he will 100% make the roster. Either Lamm or Sambrailo will start opposite Lewan.

Interior OL (4)

  • Rodger Saffold
  • Ben Jones
  • Nate Davis
  • Aaron Brewer

Brewer is a solid IOL depth piece. Sambrailo, Lamm and Radunz can also play guard.
