PRO: The Titans signed offensive lineman Xavier Newman as an undrafted free agent following the 2022 NFL Draft. He spent the majority of his rookie campaign on the practice squad and appeared in one game as a reserve. The 6-foot-2-inch, 297-pounder appeared in 47 games with 37 starts over five seasons at Baylor (2017-21). The Desoto, Texas, native possesses versatility, having made 28 starts at left guard, eight at right guard, and one contest at center. Newman earned Big 12 honorable mention recognition as a senior.

•   While at Baylor, Newman served on mission trips to Puerto Rico (May 2018), and South Africa (May 2019). "Those two mission trips to Puerto Rico and South Africa changed my life," Newman said. "Those were the first times for me to be out of the country. Knowing we have it real good here compared to other people in other countries, it doesn't faze them that they don't have as much. We take for granted what we have, so that was a real big eye opener for me."
•   A versatile lineman, Newman played left guard, center, and right guard while in college. "Honestly for me, it's really not that hard," Newman said. "I just take the approach to learn all three positions from the beginning, no matter what spot I'm at. Once the coaches tell me 'Hey I need you to go there,' I'm like 'I got you coach, it's cool.' I've already taken the time out to learn all three different positions.'"
•   In the future, Newman wants to coach high school football in his home state of Texas and impact younger players the way past coaches have impacted him.
