It had a host who had this really creepy voice, one that probably still freaks you out today if you’ve heard it, and as the title states, its content was dedicated to eery stories that have no explanation or ending.

Anthony Firkser: Titans' GM Jon Robinson wants blocking to improve in 2021

Firkser saw an increased opportunity in the passing game mid-way through last season, absorbing targets from Jonnu Smith while becoming a reliable option for Titans' QB Ryan Tannehill. GM Jon Robinson elaborated on Firkser's role, stating, " He's gotten better. He's a dependable pass catcher and sticks his head in there in the run game. He's a competitive guy and a team guy. I'm proud of his progress. He's got some work to do (in blocking), but he's working his tail off to improve." With Jonnu now in New England, Firkser has a great chance at becoming the TE1 for the Titans in 2021, building on the 39 receptions for 387 yards and a touchdown he totaled in 16 games during the 2020 season.

Titans Re-Signing TE Anthony Firkser

Paul Kuharsky reports that the Titans are re-signing TE Anthony Firkser to a one-year contract on Wednesday. Firkser should have an opportunity to handle a larger role in the Titans’ offense with Jonnu Smith and Corey Davis departing in free agency. Firkser, 26, originally signed on with the Jets as...

Titans sign Anthony Firkser to a one-year deal

Paul Kuharsky is reporting that the Titans have signed Anthony Firkser to a one-year deal:. Firkser was a restricted free agent, so it was always assumed that he would be back with the team one way or another. The Titans decided to go ahead and sign him to a contract instead of giving him a tender.

Titans' Anthony Firkser: Re-signs with Titans

Firkser and the Titans agreed Wednesday on a one-year contract, Paul Kuharsky of reports. The two sides have opted to avoid the restricted free agent process, instead locking Firkser in with the Titans for 2021. He can become an unrestricted free agent next offseason, and he could be looking at a nice payday if Jonnu Smith's departure for New England leaves Firkser as the primary pass-catching tight end in Tennessee. The Titans' other veteran options at the position are blocking specialists MyCole Pruitt and Geoff Swaim, but the team still has plenty of time to add competition for Smith's vacated snaps and targets. Firkser has done well with limited receiving chances through three NFL seasons, catching 72 of 97 targets (74.2 percent) for 816 yards (11.3 YPR, 8.4 YPT) and three touchdowns in 43 games. There's some fourth-year breakout appeal for Firkser now that Smith and Corey Davis are out of the picture.

Titans' Anthony Firkser: Records pair of receptions

Firkser recorded two receptions on two targets for 18 yards in Week 17 against the Texans. Firkser was the only Titans receiver besides Corey Davis and A.J. Brown to record multiple receptions. However, the performance continued the trend of Firkser occupying only a small role in the offense, as he closed the season with five receptions in his final four games. Overall, Firkser managed his best season as a receiver, setting career-best marks in receptions, receiving yardage and targets. Firkser is set to become a restricted free agent in the offseason, but he will first look to help the team make a playoff run, beginning with a matchup against Baltimore in the wild-card round.

Titans' Anthony Firkser: Limited to one reception

Firsker recorded one reception on two targets for 11 yards in Week 16 against the Packers. Firkser's role was extremely limited, as he logged a season-low eight snaps. The reemergence of Jonnu Smith and increased role for Geoff Swaim have pushed Firkser down the depth chart. He is unlikely to make much impact in a Week 17 matchup against the Texans.

Titans' Anthony Firkser: Only one catch

Firkser recorded one catch on one target for 20 yards in Week 15 against the Lions. Firkser had a limited role in the offense, with Jonnu Smith clearly working ahead of him on the depth chart. While he has had flashes of production throughout the season, Firkser now has one or zero receptions in three of his last four games.
