Titans Player Roster | Tennessee Titans - TitansOnline.com
PRO: The Titans signed Cameron Batson as a rookie free agent following the 2018 NFL Draft. The 5-foot-8-inch, 180-pounder is a shifty route-runner with good burst and run-after-catch ability. The Texas Tech product also has experience in the return game having brought back both kickoffs and punts during his collegiate career. In four seasons with the Red Raiders, Batson collected 157 receptions for 1,499 yards and 14 touchdowns, while returning 22 kickoffs for 417 yards and 65 punts for 394 yards.
• In 2018, Batson made the Titans’ active roster out of training camp as a rookie free agent. He appeared in 11 games with two starts at wide receiver and posted eight catches for 82 yards.
• Batson was the valedictorian of his class at Millwood (Okla.) High School, and at Texas Tech, he graduated cum laude with his accounting degree in just over three years. His valedictorian speech – he had 52 in his graduating class – focused on his class, along with his past, and his journey.
• Batson wasn’t necessarily expecting to make the team’s 53-man roster as a rookie free agent in 2018. So when he walked into general manager Jon Robinson’s office during cutdown day, he was expecting the worst. But things took a nice turn, and then something happened even the GM had never experienced before. Robinson told Batson he’d made the team’s 53-man roster, and an impromptu prayer broke out. “I sat there and prayed,” Batson said, “and Jon bowed his head with me. He said, “That’s the first time anyone had ever done that.’ … I just wanted to give God the glory, with everything that is going on good or bad, because without Him nothing is possible.”
