Titans add Raheem Brock, Harrington
By Paul Kuharsky
Adding former Colts defensive lineman Raheem Brock gives the Titans one thing they need and one thing they’ll take:
- A defensive end capable of playing a lot of snaps.
- The experience to play both end and tackle.
A day after Brock visited the Texans, he went to Nashville and signed with Tennessee.
He was a great fit for the Colts, who released him after the season because of circumstances that never became clear. And he drew no interest that came to light in a long offseason until now, when a couple of his old division rivals suffered injuries at end and needed help.
The Titans are currently without rookie Derrick Morgan (calf) and William Hayes (knee), and Jacob Ford has been limited.
To make room for Brock and another defensive lineman, Chris Harrington, the Titans cut defensive end Marcus Howard (who Jeff Fisher said had season-ending triceps surgery) and receiver Phillip Morris.
I mistakenly confused Marcus Howard with seventh-round defensive tackle David Howard in the original version of this post. Apologies to readers and the remaining Mr. Howard.
