If Chris Spencer is re-signed as the Titans' primary interior offensive line backup, it appears it will be as a fallback plan.

The Titans hosted Mike McGlynn before he signed in Washington.

Wednesday, they are having former Falcons lineman Garrett Reynolds, former Jaguars lineman Uche Nwaneri and former Steelers/Saints/Broncos lineman Eric Olsen in for visits.

Tennessee is set with Andy Levitre as left guard, Brian Schwenke as center and Chance Warmack at right guard.

The only other interior lineman on the roster is Tyler Horn, who was on the practice squad in 2013.

In the final year for Hall of Fame offensive lineman Mike Munchak as the Titans' coach, the team stocked up on veteran linemen.

They had Rob Turner and Spencer on the team last year. Schwenke missed most of camp with a hamstring injury and the Titans turned to Turner for six starts before Schwenke was ready. Turner wound up on IR with a shoulder injury.

Spencer played in all 16 games with a start against Indianapolis when Schwenke needed time to rest an ankle injury.

The new Titans regime clearly thinks it can find a better talent-price combination.

McGlynn was a tough player for the Colts who had good moments, but Indy’s interior line was a big issue while he was a part of it.

Bill Polian graded the free-agent class as part of ESPN.com’s free-agency tracker. Polian rates Reynolds and Nwaneri as "D's ." Olsen isn’t on his list.
