NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans coach Mike Mularkey and general manager Jon Robinson have made it clear to former players they want them to feel welcome.  
Clearly, players are getting the message.
 
Over 60 players are scheduled to attend the second annual Titans Homecoming weekend event this weekend. The former players will meet at a gathering in Nashville on Friday night, and they'll attend a walkthrough practice on Saturday. A reception is planned for both nights.
 
The players will then be recognized at halftime of the team's game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
 

"We want them around,'" Mularkey said of the former players. "When this thing turns around, they need to be a part of the turnaround. This is a tough business, and they have earned the right to be here and be a part of this organization."
 
Throughout the offseason, players stopped by to watch practices. The team also had a Titans Alumni Meet and Greet at Saint Thomas Sports Park during the offseason as well.
 
Roughly 37 players returned for the homecoming event last year, but the number has grown significantly. A much smaller group was introduced to the crowd at Nissan Stadium during a 2014 game.
 
Former Titans receivers Derrick Mason, Kevin Dyson and Drew Bennett, defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch, safety Blaine Bishop, linebacker Keith Bulluck, tackle Brad Hopkins, tight end Frank Wycheck, cornerback Samari Rolle and running back LenDale White are among those scheduled to attend this weekend's festivities.
 
Mularkey said he'd like to see a culture where former players build relationships with players currently on the roster.
 
"There's a lot of experience they can share with our current players that can help them football-wise, life-wise, post-football,'' Mularkey said. "There's a lot of things that could help players, and I want to take advantage of that."
