Still unsigned: Titans LB Will Witherspoon
By Paul Kuharsky
A review of the best member of the 2012 Tennessee Titans who’s still unsigned:
Will Witherspoon was a good guy in the Titans' locker room and there were Sundays when he was a good linebacker. But he was not as big a leader as the Titans may have expected when they signed him in 2010 and he was not as consistent a player as they needed him to be.
In three seasons in Tennessee he started 35 games. But in his final season he started only five and was much more of a role player.
It was his 11th season and the Titans needed to go younger and find more consistency in a veteran linebacker who could play more than one position.
Moise Fokou was signed as a free agent and could be that guy and Zaviar Gooden was drafted in the third round to back up Zach Brown on the weak side and perhaps take on a role in the nickel package.
Witherspoon said he wants to play 15 years. So far he hasn’t found a team that wants to give him No. 12.
Among others still unsigned: Guard Leroy Harris, safety Jordan Babineaux, cornerback Ryan Mouton and running back Javon Ringer.
