Quarterback Will Levis is excited about the Tennessee Titans' potential ahead of his sophomore season.

"I made it a point to stick around here for the most part and get to know the new everything. And I feel like it paid off," Levis said, according to team reporter Jim Wyatt. "Once OTA season came around, things have been going smoothly, and I've just been loving everybody and everything about it."

He continued: "And I love (what we've done with new additions). For one, it means (the front office isn't) afraid to make those investments, and they want to go win, which is awesome to see. We know we had the guys to make it work, but adding more guys certainly doesn't hurt, and it creates more competition and more options."

Expectations for the Titans have elevated over recent months after the club made several high-profile acquisitions. Tennessee signed veteran Calvin Ridley and Tyler Boyd to create one of the more formidable receiving trios alongside DeAndre Hopkins. After letting former All-Pro tailback Derrick Henry leave in free agency, the Titans inked Tony Pollard to pair with Tyjae Spears in the backfield.

Tennessee will also look for Levis to step up from his rookie campaign and help meet the team's goals in 2024.

The Titans ruled Levis inactive for the first six games of the 2023 season before he recorded his first career start in Week 8. The former second-rounder finished the campaign by throwing for 1,808 yards, eight touchdowns, and four interceptions, with a 58.4% completion rate over nine games. The Titans posted a 3-6 mark in Levis' starts.

Ankle and foot injuries kept Levis inactive for Tennessee's final two contests of 2023. However, the ailments don't appear to be issues ahead of OTAs in a few weeks, with Levis saying he feels "great."

"That is one of the things I was looking to improve the most this offseason - getting healthy, getting my stuff back, and being able to play the game like I know I can," Levis said.

Levis also credited first-year head coach Brian Callahan with creating an environment encouraging players to come out of their shells.

Tennessee finished with a 6-11 record last season and dismissed head coach Mike Vrabel following back-to-back sub-.500 campaigns.
