In his short time as the general manager of the Tennessee Titans, Jon Robinson has shown the willingness to make moves in the team's roster.
Of course the trade for DeMarco Murray highlighted Robinson's moves, but there have been other, more subtle moves along the bottom of the roster where most recently an undrafted rookie wide receiver Reese Horn was signed to the roster after a tryout at St. Thomas Sports Park during the teams recently concluded mini-camp.
Only 90 players can enter training camp on the team's roster but it would not be a surprise to see several more moves made on the lower end at anytime, including before, during and after training camp and all the way to week three of the regular season.
Robinson and the Titans sit in an enviable position- sort of considering the Titans were the worst team in the NFL last season- as the first team in line for claims on the waiver wire. They will hold that position until the completion of the third week of the season.
What that means is that Robinson will be a busy man in the coming weeks as he studies film and scouting reports on players on other NFL teams who might soon be released and be available for the Titans to claim off waivers.
There could well be some well known veteran players and even some draft picks that team's can't find room to keep on their rosters. Anyone who Robinson feels could help the teams depth and improve the back end of the roster will likely be claimed.
To claim a player(s) off waivers, the claiming team must make a corresponding move to release someone currently on the 90 man roster. Being on the bottom half of this roster at this time is certainly an uneasy place to be.
Horn, who comes from tiny Division III University of Indianapolis was an All-American wide receiver for the Greyhounds. He was a lightly recruited player out of high school and worked to earn his chance to make an NFL roster. He knows that he has some work to do to remain with this team as he attempt to earn a spot on the active roster or practice squad.
"Being a small school guy I know my odds are pretty long," said Horn."I know it's going to be a battle, but I know that I have talent and feel like I can play in the league, but I have to work harder than the rest to earn my place."
There could also be some Titans veterans who might find themselves at the mercy of the waiver wire as well, especially of a veteran player is released who can compete as a starter immediately.
It's an ever changing possibility, and one that Robinson does not want to find himself in again, but as long as he has it, you can expect him to make the most of it and makes as many moves as he feels necessary to improve this roster from 1 to 90 before the final cuts are made and the season begins.
Even then there will be three more weeks of uneasy time for some players.
