The Tennessee Titans finished the 2021 season first in the AFC South but lost in the divisional round playoffs against the Cincinnati Bengals.

While they didn’t make as many splashy moves as some other NFL teams, there are some notable differences, especially on offense. On the first night of the NFL Draft, the Titans traded AJ Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles for the 18th pick. The Titans would go on to use that pick on Arkansas receiver Treylon Burks.

Teresa Walker, a writer for the Associated Press, joined Cattles & Ramie on Monday afternoon to discuss the Tennessee Titans and preview the AFC South ahead of the 2022 NFL season.

Topics discussed include:

  • Is this Ryan Tannehill’s last year with the Titans?
  • Derrick Henry is one of the best running backs in the league. How healthy is he heading into 2022?
  • The Titans lost AJ Brown but gained Robert Woods and tight end Austin Hooper in free agency and drafted Burks. Will there be a big drop-off in the receiving game?
  • What should we expect from the Titans’ defense?
