Former Tennessee Vols wide receiver Josh Malone is hoping to stick with the Tennessee Titans this season.

Malone, who played at Tennessee from 2014 to 2016, was signed by the Titans earlier this offseason, He spent the 2021 season splitting time between the New York Jets, Denver Broncos, and Green Bay Packers.

The Tennessee native hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since the 2020 season, which tells us that he has a tough hill to climb if he’s going to make the Titans’ roster this fall.

On Saturday, Malone made his presence felt on a play where he blew past the defender before tipping the ball to himself in the end zone to complete the catch.

Check it out:

Malone has legit speed. He can be a deep threat for Ryan Tannehill in the Titans’ offense.

But as things stand right now, Malone is probably the No. 7 or No. 8 wide receiver, at best, on Tennessee’s depth chart. He’ll likely need a couple of injuries to occur to make the Titans’ 53-man roster this fall.

However, if Malone keeps making plays like the one he made on Saturday, he might give the Titans’ coaching staff something to think about.
