Depth charts currently only guide to practice as Munchak pushes Titans to compete harder

Michael Roos remains Tennessee's left tackle, and Jake Locker doesn't have to compete just to keep his starting job at quarterback. Chris Johnson also is safe along with a handful of veterans, especially those free agents the Titans brought in earlier this year.

Everyone else? Well, coach Mike Munchak has made it clear that depth charts now are only a guide for practice with jobs up for grabs.

Munchak is stoking competition trying to bounce back strong from a 6-10 season, and the new coaches he brought in are learning exactly what talent they have to work with on the field.

Receiver Nate Washington said Tuesday that Munchak is pushing them every day to compete, which is happening from the weight room to the classroom to the field.
