With Leger Douzable signed, Tennessee Titans May Add More New Faces Around Nashville

There have been many new faces around the Tennessee Titans within this last week. And the Titans are not anywhere near being done constructing their team for next year.

In the past week, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Leger Douzable was signed and Defensive end Dave Tollefson and New England Patriots center Dan Koppen have visited with the Titans.

The is great, only because the defense is exactly what needs to be worked on, and in my previous article I stated that the Tennessee O-line isn’t horrible but there is always room for improvement.

Douzable has played his last two years and 31 games with the Jags and he racked up 88 tackles and one sacks. He has nine tackles that registered yards lost for the opposing team. He also has experience at defensive tackle, as he played his first two seasons with the New York Giants (2008-2009). Between the Giants and the Jags he spent a year with the St. Louis Rams (2010).  Last year he reached a career high when he played in 16 games and registered 61 tackles, one sack and seven tackles for loss.

Dan Koppen’s visit to Tennessee was scheduled for earlier this week. Though Koppen is still under contract with the New England Patriots, his return is questionable. Only because of his ankle injury last year, which enabled veteran Dan Connolly to come in to replace Koppen. Connolly was re-signed to a three year deal. It’s natural for Koppen to want to venture out and look into different programs.

Tollefson’s visit with the Titans took place on Thursday. He has spent the last five seasons with the Giants and had his career high of five sacks last year NFL.com reports. The Titans missed signing him to the Oakland Raiders.

It is also rumored that the Titans have interest in free agent centers Scott Wells (St. Louis Rams), Jeff Saturday (Green Bay Packers) and Chris Meyers (Houston Texans).

So maybe it’s not in the cards for Koppen to become a Titans member with all that competition. If I had to choose, I’d take giving Koppen a contract over Tollefson.
