Meet the Tennessee Titans’ New Bad Boy

NASHVILLE – With four games remaining, there is now a clear favorite for who will be the most penalized Tennessee Titans player of 2020.

Inside linebacker Rashaan Evans took firm control of the race during Sunday’s loss to Cleveland, when he was flagged three times, once each for roughing the passer, unnecessary roughness and defensive holding. It was the first time this season he was penalized more than once but it gave him seven for the year, at least three more than any of his teammates.

“There’s a fine line between playing hard and everything that we preach – the aggressiveness, the attacking mentality, full-tilt to the tackle, all playing through the whistle – all that stuff,” outside linebackers coach/defensive play-caller Shane Bowen said. “And then there’s the extra stuff, the stuff where you might lose your composure, you become a little undisciplined and really, ultimately … doing dumb stuff that hurts the team.
