Outgoing/Incoming: Tennessee Titans

By Paul Kuharsky

One player I think will be outgoing, one player I think should be incoming, for the Tennessee Titans once free agency opens Tuesday afternoon.

I’m steering clear of the huge guys on the incoming category, as it’s easy to say a team should covet the best and most expensive player at a position of need.

Outgoing: Jason Jones, defensive lineman. I think they messed him up by insisting he was an end and not a tackle, when he clearly was able to have more of an impact inside and it didn’t ensure health. An outside team that sees him differently will be able to sell him on how impactful he can be with a move, and will likely offer him more than the Titans will.

Incoming: Evan Mathis, guard. Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. is high on Mathis, calls him technically sound and sees him as a Titans kind of guy. I tend to agree. Mathis won’t cost nearly as much as Carl Nicks or even Ben Grubbs, but can help solidify the interior line if he’s able to play the way for his next team as he did for the Eagles last season.
