The Tennessee Titans will reportedly be cutting starting Center Ben Jones, according to a report from AtoZSports’ Buck Reising. This news comes as part of a larger veteran player purge, which has seen the team release several key players in recent days.
Jones, who has been with the Titans since 2016, was a vital part of the team’s offensive line. His release is yet another sign that new general manager Ran Carthon is determined to shake up the roster and bring in fresh blood.
The Titans had already released left tackle Taylor Lewan, wide receiver Robert Woods, linebacker Zach Cunningham, and kicker Randy Bullock. They will also reportedly be cutting LB Bud Dupree in the coming days. These moves represent a significant change in direction for a team that had high hopes for the 2023 season.
It remains to be seen what other changes Carthon has in store. One name that has been mentioned in trade rumors is quarterback Ryan Tannehill. While Tannehill had a solid season in 2021, leading the Titans to the playoffs, his 2022 season was filled with injuries and up and down play. Some analysts believe that the team may be looking to move on and find a new franchise quarterback.
For now, Titans fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for their team. With several key players gone and more changes potentially on the way, the Titans will be a team to watch as the 2023 season approaches.
