    SUMMARY: The Titans finished 29th in average drive start making the return game a priority entering this season. "That’s something we’re really working hard at and we’re emphasizing it with our team as far as it being a point of emphasis," Special Teams Coach Alan Lowry said. "We do have to improve in those areas, and the fact that we are looking for a guy to take the role and run with it." So far, a number of players have had opportunities on both punt and kickoff returns. Former Raider Chris Carr may be an early favorite to handle the punt return duties if he can hold off last season's returner Chris Davis. "They said they really wanted to improve that and they said that I could come in here and help them out," Carr said. Rookie Chris Johnson will compete to win the kick returner job. In his college career, he set a Conference USA record with 2,715 kickoff return yards. Though Johnson is also learning to catch punts, kickoffs are his primary special teams focus.

    I am interested to see how CJ does on kick returns this preseason. If he blows one up for a TD I think Carr may regret his decision to join the Titans. :brow:
