NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Whether it’s their first year on the team or their fourth, a lot of players are on the bubble as the Titans take on the Dolphins Thursday night.

The team right now sits at 75 players, a number that must be reduced to 53 by Saturday afternoon. While the Titans are set with their starting lineups it’s special teams players and reserve roles that are still up for grabs.

The only question now facing head coach Mike Mularkey is whether or not to take young unproven players or veterans who skills may be starting to decline.

“I don’t know. That’s a discussion. There’s a lot of factors that play into it. I know I say it all the time, but does special teams have any value to it? It may,” Mularkey said.

“There’s a lot of factors that go into it, from everything they do here, during meetings—everything will play a factor. Whoever has the edge in everything will get the roster spot,” he continued.

A couple of key spots to pay attention to are wide receiver where former Volunteer Justin Hunter may not make the roster and at the third string running spot where Antonio Andrews and Bishop Sankey are in a war to make the team.
