Tennessee Titans Reach a Contract with Defensive Tackle Mike Martin

By Stephanie Umek

One of the biggest concerns this year without a doubt was going to be the defense for the Tennessee Titans. Now with work done in the draft, and the personalities of the draftees, the Titans are able to start making some offers. They made an offer last week on Cornerback Coty Sensabaugh. Today the Titans have agreed to terms with Defensive Tackle Mike Martin.

Though the specifics of the deal are not all fully released yet, the Titans making him an offer clearly states that he is going to be a member of the team and he will help with the progression of play throughout the season.

Martin has some big shoes to fill and I am hoping that he will be able to handle the stress of becoming a professional as much as they say that he can. He recorded 54 tackles and has great size for the position standing at 6-foot-10 and 306 pounds. He is going to be a massive piece of machinery for the Titans. In his career he has 172 tackles and 10 sacks. During the NFL Combine, back in February he had the third best vertical and tied for the best broad jump. He was second in bench press and everyone knows that his main job this year will be to bring the power and replace Cortland Finnegan.

The biggest thing that I am excited for is to see him at the pass rush. According to his stats at the Combine, he is going to be a great asset to the team in this way and it’s going to be solid for Tennessee.
