The Titans are expected to decline the fifth-year option on offensive tackle Jack Conklin according to Pro Football Talk.
The Titans selected Conklin with the eighth overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. He became an immediate starter with the team during his rookie campaign and earned a first-team All-Pro selection.
Conklin started all 32 regular-season games during his first two seasons, but started only nine games last year due to multiple injuries.
He suffered an ACL injury in the 2017 postseason and missed the first three games in 2018 while he recovered. He also sat out Week 10 with a concussion before a knee injury sustained in Week 14 led to his placement on injured reserve.
Conklin’s latest string of injuries likely played a role in the Titans’ decision to pass on his option. He can use the 2019 season to earn a large contract with Tennessee or during free agency in 2020.
