A.J. Highsmith and Keenan Agnew join the Titans’ front office; Josh Scobey was interviewed by the team.

Teams’ scouting departments see many changes in May since staff members are frequently retained in place prior to the draft in order to maintain consistency. One of the clubs making adjustments soon after the draft is the Titans.

Neil Stratton of InsidetheLeague.com reports that A.J. Highsmith is being hired by Titans general manager Ran Carthon, who is in his second year of office. The two second-generation NFL players will be getting back together for this. In the latter part of the 2010s, Carthon and Highsmith collaborated with the 49ers.

A.J., the son of NFL personnel veteran Alonzo Highsmith, played for the Bills for the previous five years, ending his time there as a national scout. A.J. Highsmith, a defensive back for Miami from 2009 to 2013, rose through the ranks from a local scouting role in Buffalo. This offseason, Alonzo also returned to the NFL, leaving his position with the Hurricanes to serve in Eliot Wolf’s reorganized front office in New England. Stratton notes that A.J. Highsmith will be responsible for both professional and college scouting in Tennessee.
Speaking of the kids of senior executives, Keenan Agnew is moving to Tennessee to work with Carthon. Stratton continues, “Kenan is joining as a scouting assistant. He’s the son of Lions assistant general manager Ray Agnew.” Keenan is going to be the second of Ray Agnew’s sons to land in an NFL front office; Ray Agnew III is part of Joe Douglas‘ Jets scouting staff.

The Titans have also given other applicants for their scouting section some time. Experienced Titans writer Paul Kuharsky reports that Josh Scobey, who just parted ways with the Cardinals after a 12-year stint, had an interview for a job with the team. Former NFL running back Scobey served as Arizona’s college scouting director until the end of his employment. The Cardinals fired Scobey during the second offseason of former Titans executive Monti Ossenfort’s tenure as general manager.
Kuharsky reports that Eagles pro scouting director Max Gruder was also interviewed by the Titans recently. Gruder received a promotion with the Eagles in the 2022 offseason. Most recently, the Titans had Brian Gardner serving as their pro scouting director and Jon Salge serving as their college scouting director. Although it’s uncertain where the two will stand in the future, Carthon’s second offseason in charge is bringing some changes beyond the coaching staff
