The Tennessee Titans are really buckling down on the roster, anyone that they feel isn’t exactly the right fit for the team, or putting their whole heart into it, are being taken care of, in a respectful manner of course.
On Tuesday morning the rumors started that the Titans would say goodbye to a veteran tight end, Daniel Graham. Unlike many players on the team, Graham was really starting to show his age (33) on the field. With a team struggling to get into the playoffs, it’s not a situation that they can afford right now. The move was made final later Tuesday according to the Tennessean.
Late yesterday, the Titans signed offensive lineman Jon Cooper. Cooper has two years of NFL experience with the Minnesota. He was an undrafted free agent in 2009. He stands 6-foot-2 and 291 pounds and usually plays center.
Maybe it will be a good time for veteran Steve Hutchinson that the Titans recently signed to step it up and take Cooper under his wing. Now that everything had pretty much settled down on the defensive side, as far as figuring out where people need to be and what positions need to be filled, I would hope that the next step for the Titans is to tighten up the offensive line a bit.
The run game is going to be alright, the three wide out position is still a little hesitant for me, but I trust that Chris Palmer knows what he is doing. The quarterbacks, whether it’s going to be Matt Hasselbeck or Jake Locker, need to be protected at all times. The O-line is going to be a solid mix of younger guys wanting to step up and veterans that know the ropes.
If they can all get together and play as one, they are going to be extremely dangerous.
