 Joe Horn had 27 receptions for 243 yards and one touchdown for the Falcons last season.

The Titans and Jaguars are two of the teams receiver Joe Horn is interested in, his agent said Tuesday afternoon. The question is whether the two AFC South teams are interested in Horn, who was released by Atlanta.

Agent Ralph Vitolo said he had conversations last week with both Mike Reinfeldt, the Titans' GM, and James Harris, the Jaguars' personnel chief. Each said at the time that he wasn't interested, but that's when the Falcons were looking for trade compensation and trying to move a player with a $2.5 million guaranteed base salary. Now he can sign for the veteran minimum.

"It's all conjecture now," Vitolo said.

He said Horn's interested in six teams including Tennessee, Jacksonville and Dallas.

My colleague, Bill Williamson, has a blog post that says Horn is also interested in San Diego and Denver.

But the Titans quickly indicated they have no interest in the 36-year-old.

The Titans are counting on Justin Gage and Justin McCareins as starters and have young, unproven players fighting for roles after that.

Jacksonville is waiting on Reggie Williams to return from knee surgery and Jerry Porter to come back from hamstring surgery.

Vitolo said Horn likes the possibility of joining a team with a young, up-and-coming quarterback and group of receivers.

He played in 12 games for Atlanta last season, catching 27 passes for 243 yards and a touchdown.

I'd be surprised if either the Titans or Jags made a move for him now.
