Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

He's been called a journeyman and a survivor.

Both fit veteran wide receiver Derek Hagan, who's just glad he got a call from the Titans last month. Now it's safe to call him something else — a contender.

Hagan didn't play in 2013 after the Buccaneers released him following training camp. He continued to train, but wondered whether he'd get another shot. Then the Titans, who saw a couple of their undrafted wideouts go down with injuries, asked him to town for a workout. They signed him to a one-year deal.

Is it realistic to think Hagan could make the roster? Anyone who watched the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder participate in minicamp last month saw that he definitely looked the part.

"You can just tell he knows what he is doing," cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson said. "He knows how to get open and things like that. He really impressed me right off the bat."

Fantasy Impact:

According to the story, one thing working in Hagan's favor is there are no locks to make the Titans roster after Nate Washington, Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter. Michael Preston and Marc Mariani are considered next in line, while another journeyman, Brian Robiskie, also is trying to continue his career. Hagan is a ways away from being fantasy relevant, however.
