When football fans learned of Tuesday’s trade between the Titans and Eagles — a deal that sent enigmatic wideout Dorial Green-Beckham to Philly in exchange for reserve offensive lineman Dennis Kelly — the first question from most was: “Who’s Dennis Kelly?”
While Green-Beckham has been a frustrating player, he’s also a freakishly gifted athlete who caused fantasy-heads to salivate before he spiraled down the Titans’ depth chart.
Tiring of the DGB experiment, general manager Jon Robinson views Kelly as a better example of where the road-grading, run-heavy Titans plan to go this season.

“I just think based on his skill set, he’s big, smart and tough and he’s versatile,” Robinson said, per the Tennessean. “He’s played a lot of positions, so he’ll be a nice added mix to that group for us. (The trade) was really just value-based. Dennis was a guy we thought could help our football team, would make us a more competitive position up there.”
In one offseason, Robinson has effectively revamped Tennessee’s roster to form a battering-ram offense that plans to unleash DeMarco Murray jersey and Derrick Henry on smaller, quicker defensive fronts. Building up the O-line will always be a priority under this model and Kelly — while not exactly Joe Thomas — pleased coach Mike Mularkey with his game film.
“I felt good about him when we discussed making this (trade),” Mularkey said. “I watched tape of him. I felt good about watching him play, his style. I thought he would fit with what we do.”

Said Mularkey: “He’s played, started games, he was in the second series against Tampa and played a good portion of the first half. I liked what he did there. Again, he’s very similar, in versatility (to injured Titans linemen Byron Bell and Josue Matias). (But) if somebody better comes across the waiver wire, we’re going to go snag him if we can. We’re going to try to improve this roster every day.”
Make no mistake about it, Tuesday’s trade says much more about Tennessee’s lack of faith in Green-Beckham’s NFL future. You don’t ship away uber-talented physical specimens unless they’re nearly impossible to develop. His on-field inconsistencies and inability to grasp the playbook were no secret. The Titans lost patience and were willing to listen when the receiver-desperate Eagles came calling.
The swap also serves as another reminder that Robinson, who cut his teeth under Bill Belichick in New England, will be an active wheeler-and-dealer and roster churner until the Titans mirror the team he envisions.

Whitehurst spent less than a month in Cleveland. After an injury knocked Cody Kessler out in Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots jerseys, Whitehurst went 14-of-24 passing for 182 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Whitehurst left in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. The veteran did return for the final kneel down.
The move is a solid indication that Kessler should be in good shape heading into Week 6. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the rookie quarterback is expected to play versus the cheap Tennessee Titans jerseys.
Veteran Josh McCown said he plans to return to practice Wednesday after missing the last three games.
While Kessler doesn’t possess a strong arm, he’s been accurate this season and displayed the ability to run Hue Jackson’s offense smoothly. Kessler led an impressive touchdown drive on the Browns second possession against the Patriots, showing poise, solid decision making and plus accuracy. Even when McCown returns, the Browns should stick with Kessler if he’s healthy.
With the Browns in full-on rebuild mode, giving Kessler and Hogan reps is the best move. Find out what you have in the rookies. We know what Clipboard Jesus is: not a good quarterback.
Cleveland also elevated defensive lineman Gabe Wright to the active roster.
