Training camp is still over a month away, but the battle for roster spots is starting to heat up, particularly at the wide receiver position.

The Titans signed veteran WR Derek Hagan Tuesday and he’s already started to have an impact on the rest of the receiving core.

If nothing else, Hagan is making practices more competitive, Kendall Wright said.

“I’m glad he’s coming to put pressure on a lot of us, it makes everyone work harder and the competition a lot better.”

Veteran Nate Washington echoed that sentiment saying, “It’s [going to] be good for us and hopefully it will light a fire under a lot of guys.”

With only two or three spots up for grabs and a handful of receiver’s trying to earn one it may be just the thing the Titans need to get the best out of their pass catchers.

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt also likes the fact that bringing in another veteran can really push the younger guys and as for players battling for a roster spot.

“He’ll put some pressure on some guys no question about that,” he said.

The Titans are back on the field Thursday for the final day of mini-camp.
