Titans make cuts to reach 53-man limit

As the website maintenance planned for this weekend is currently on postponement, it’s time to put up a post here on the roster cuts.
The Titans have released 22 players, 13 yesterday and 9 more today, to reach the mandatory 53-man roster limit. A full list of cuts, along with analysis, follows after the cut:
LS Jeremy Cain
CB Marquice Cole
DE Sean Conover
FB Casey Cramer
RB Omar Cuff
WR Biren Ealy
LB Jerrell Freeman
DB Tuff Harris
DT Antonio Johnson
S Tony Joiner
S Calvin Lowry
OL Enoka Lucas
QB Ingle Martin
OL Jason Murphy
TE Jamie Petrowski
OL Isaac Snell
DE Eric Taylor
K John Vaughn
OL Fernando Velasco
CB Cary Williams
WR Edward Williams
WR Roydell Williams
The biggest surprises among the kept players, to me, are WR Paul Williams and DT Kevin Vickerson. Paul Williams was inactive for every game last season, and didn’t play much in the preseason. For example, he didn’t appear on offense in the game against Green Bay until the 4th quarter, while Roydell played from the first quarter. One key is that Paul played special teams. He also has another year left on his rookie deal, which is another consideration. Still, I’d expect him to be an inactive fairly regularly. Vickerson, it probably came down to him or Antonio Johnson… I hope the coaching staff got this right, as Johnson looked recovered from his ACL injury and made some nice plays this preseason.
