    We don't really have THAT many DT's. We got Casey, Martin, Hill, Klug as sure guys. I'm sure we brought in Johnson as a guy to fight for that 5th spot over Dajohn Harris and Zach Clayton(shouldn't be that tough to beat them out)

    Don't expect much pass rush help from Johnson he has 1.5 sacks his whole career.

    Just a warm body with some experience to fight for a roster spot.

    I just saw a tweet or article snippet yesterday saying they would try Klug at DE during camp and what not. I'm looking for it now but can't find it.

    I've been telling you guys that DT was a much bigger need for us than DE! However I was wanting a star DT not just another depth player. We have plenty of that. So I would have preferred us signing a DE like Abraham or someone else!

    I refuse to continue talking about Amano, and this signing means nothing .

    The team also brough in Stefan Charles as an UDFA. The guy is 6'4, 328 with decent athelticism.
    DaJohn Harris might also be a guy who could have a nice camp (he had one last season) and get on the roster. Remember Harris dropped in the draft because of a heart problem but was projected to be a 3rd or 4th round pick. So this is about creating competition and letting the best guy win.

    Mookie's production dropped last season mainly because the Colts went to a 3-4 and he wasn't a NT. If the Titans want to try Klug at DE, adding more depth at DT makes sense.
