The Titans have parted ways with longtime college scout Phil Neri, according to Paul Kuharsky of paulkuharsky.com.

Neri has served as an NFL scout for 40 seasons, including the past 13 with the Titans. He previously was the director of college personnel for the Browns.

His contract was set to expire after the 2018 draft.

As Kuharsky points out, it is unusual for teams to part ways with a scout during the season. The team’s college scouts are in Nashville for draft meetings, with the college football regular season having concluded.

Neri’s responsibilities included cross-checking all prospects West of the Mississippi, and it’s unknown who has inherited his duties.

  1. The whole Titans scouting dept needs an overhaul. The way they’re not only wasting Derrick Henry’s prime years, but also his cheap contract can only mean he’s just not that good. Of course we can’t really know that for sure since he can’t seem to force his way on the field. Either way it’s a huge indictment on a scouting dept to burn a valuable draft pick on a position that can really be found in any round and can’t even get on the field…

    Unless the Titans coach simply just has Murray on his fantasy football team, there is really no justification for Henry sitting on the bench!!!
