Titans Considering Extension For DeAndre Hopkins?

Monday, July 8, 2:56 PM

Tennessee Titans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is entering the second year of a two-year, $26 million deal that he made look like a bargain after bouncing back in 2023. In the spring, Hopkins removed pictures and affiliations featuring team logos from his social-media accounts, but he was around and joined quarterback Will Levis and other receivers on a trip to work and have fun this offseason. It remains to be seen if the Titans will try to extend Hopkins before the start of the 2024 season. It's not an easy decision for a 32-year-old wideout. If the Titans don't give him an extension, they could lose Hopkins just as he and Levis and this Brian Callahan offense starts to click. The Titans should throw more this year, but Hopkins' age, Levis' inexperience and the addition of Calvin Ridley are all reasons to doubt whether he can have another productive season in 2024.

Michael Pittman Jr. Held Out Of Thursday's Practice

Thursday, May 30, 4:30 PM

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (knee) did not participate in Thursday's OTA practice, but Joel A. Erickson of Indy Star said it was for precautionary reasons. Pittman banged knees with a defender last week and limped off the field, but he is expected to be "fine". The former second-round pick has posted at least 88 receptions, 925 yards, and four touchdowns over the last three seasons, but he'll face more target competition this year. The Colts selected Adonai Mitchell in the second round of the 2024 NFL Draft, and 2023 third-rounder Josh Downs is expected to have an expanded role. All that said, Pittman should remain the WR1 for Anthony Richardson and post at least low-end WR2 numbers in his fifth NFL campaign.
