From The Tennessean re: position battles to watch tomorrow night:
Like, for example, the No. 6 wide receiver spot. With Cameron Batson on injured reserve, Darius Jennings appeared to be the frontrunner. But Kalif Raymond is making it awfully hard to overlook him, and Cody Hollister is having a solid preseason, too. All three will be worth watching Saturday.
Question: Hello Jim. My question is do you think the Titans keep Kalif Raymond and put him on the 53 man roster or practice squad if he keeps performing the way he did against the Eagles the rest of the preseason? Jim: Hey Oswald. Good question. Kalif opened a lot of eyes in Philadelphia, and it followed a great start to training camp. He’s been mostly solid, although he did have a few drops this week. Kalif is talented, no doubt. When I do the math at receiver, it’s going to be tough, though. I count Corey Davis, Adam Humphries, A.J. Brown, Tajae Sharpe and Taywan Taylor, and the way Darius Jennings performed as a returner last year, he has extra value. Some other guys are battling as well. Kalif needs to keep playing well, and earning extra chances to show what he can do. I’ve had a few folks ask me if he’s practice squad eligible because he’s been in the league a little while. He is eligible, so that’s something to keep in mind with him as well.
Just a reminder that Kalif is playing against the Pats tonight. No action yet. Darius Jennings has already gotten in and had one short reception which is not great for Kalif. Adoree Jackson was the starting punt returned. Didn’t see the opening kickoff but there was no return.
