Tuesday Mailbag: Jim Wyatt Answers Questions From Titans Fans as Minicamp Begins


NASHVILLE – We've made it into June, and to Titans minicamp.

The team will be on the field for the next three days at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park, before OTAs the following week to wrap up the team's offseason program.

Let's jump into another mailbag before the action gets under way.

Joseph Carney from Anchorage, Alaska
Question: Hi Jim! You're a busy man so I'll get right to it.
What are your thoughts on Caleb Farley at this point? Seems with the new coaching staff it's a clean slate for him. Not that he was in the doghouse or whatever but with fresh blood - coaches and players - around to feed off, learn, evaluate, etc, I hope he's able to put forth his best. Of course much depends on his health but chance of making the final roster? Thank you, Sir!

Jim: Hey Joseph. The most important thing for Caleb is to stay healthy, and compete. And, he's been able to do just that during the course of the offseason. Caleb has been on the field every day I've been out there, which is great. He's made some plays as well -- he had a great break-up on a Malik Willis pass intended for receiver Treylon Burks last week. It's a good start, but he still has his work cut out for him in a room with newcomers L'Jarius Sneed, Chidobe Awuzie and Jarvis Brownlee, and returners Roger McCreary and Tre Avery, among others.

Brandon Eubanks from Eldora, Iowa
Question: Haven't seen a lot about the offensive line I was wondering if you could highlight for me if there's anybody sticking out. And how's the right side looking of the OL? Thank you for your time TITAN UP!

Jim: Hey Brandon. I've been watching a lot of the o-line, but it's early. Guys aren't in pads, so there's only so much you can tell. I will say I've been impressed with some of the new faces, from veteran center Lloyd Cushenberry to rookie left tackle JC Latham. Both these guys carry themselves like pros, leaders on the field. Peter Skoronski has looked more comfortable. And, veteran o-line coach Bill Callahan is a tone-setter on the practice field. We haven't seen a whole lot of Nicholas Petit-Frere this offseason, so that makes the right side a little tougher to evaluate. Also, Jaelyn Duncan just came back to practice last week after missing time.

Roger Wilson from Spring Hill, Tennessee
Question: First I want to thank you for keeping us updated on the Titans year round but especially this time of year when we're so anxious to see the product on the field this season. My question is about the status of T'Vondre Sweat. I'm really excited about his future but am wondering if he's dealing with an injury or conditioning issues that have kept him off the field to this point. Again, thanks for your coverage of our team.

Jim: Hey Roger. Appreciate it. T'Vondre has been around, he just hasn't been on the field in recent weeks. Coach Brian Callahan said he was rehabbing something at some point last month. Priority No.1 was to get him in a good place physically to perform, and I imagine that's what is happening now.

James Ball from Fayetteville, North Carolina
Question: Hey Jim. Been a big supporter and fan of the Tennessean titans/ Houston Oilers since 1979. My question is how good is our D line? TITAN UP AND THANKS FOR WHAT YOU DO

Jim: Hey James. Well, T'Vondre is going to be a big part of how good this group might be in 2024. We all know Jeffery Simmons is going to do his thing. The team is counting on Sebastian Joseph-Day to bolster the group. Meanwhile, Quinton Bohanna, Keondre Coburn, Marlon Davidson, Isaiah Iton and TK McLendon are all on the roster, and they'll battle to make the team and earn playing time. There's no doubt this group is going to miss Denico Autry. Some question marks are in here behind Simmons and Joseph-Day, and that includes Sweat at this point. We'll have to see how things play out.

Zach Crutcher from Franklin, Tennessee
Question: Hey Jim. I'm just curious on if there will be a Titans 5K this summer? It's one of my favorite events of the year, but figured it will be tough for to do this year with the new stadium construction. Thanks Jim!

Jim: Hey Zach. I've gotten this question from a few folks. The good news is the Titans Foundation 5K will return for 2024. Keep an eye out for official date soon, possibly announced as early as this week. Sounds like it will be in August, but again, stay tuned and be ready to lace 'em up.

Luther Greer Jr. from Murfreesboro, Tennessee
Question: Hey Jim. It's really going to be an exciting year for our Titans, and thank you for the great information about our team each week. Could you fill titans nation up about the possibility of us landing Justin Simmons? Man he would be great in the Dennard Wilson scheme let's Titan up everybody I believe we will be dangerous this year thanks Jim for your great work everyone Titan up

Jim: Hey Luther. I'll just repeat what I've said every time I've gotten a question about him. Ran Carthon and Brian Callahan have both said they're interested in adding to the safety position. Nothing has happened yet. I suspect there will be an addition before training camp, but we'll have to just keep waiting.

Have a great week everyone!
