    I can see the Titans doing this i'm not a big fan of the verteran three but I wouldn't mind them as situational starters. However, it does seem like the Titans are trying to bring in vertern leaders to help guide the young team so that is a positive. Michael Bennett is interesting he is still young at 27 and had his first decent season with 9 sacks.

    I really hope we don't get Freeney, just haven't been impressed with his play. Osi would be nice but I'm not sure we'd be willing to pay as much as he's probably going to ask for a rotational guy. Abraham would probably be the best fit for this team among the 3.

    I still want Bennett over any of these guys though, he could help us lure in his brother as well.

    Why the love for Michael Bennett? 15 career sacks in five years. I'd just go with a mid-round draft pick...

    He's very good against the run and inconsistent pass rushing. He's not a great DE but he's probably the best in the class this year.

    So he's Derrick Morgan. I'd rather go after Abraham and let him play on passing downs than go after Bennett.

    Yeah he's basically a Derrick Morgan but a little better imo (even though if Morgan continues to progress he'll jump him). Yeah Abraham coming here and just being that pass rush specialist kind of role here would probably be better than signing Bennett, saves money and what we truly need is another pass rusher off the bench. I still do like Bennett and wouldn't be upset with either.

    Osi don't need to play. He get weekly $43 checks from his 5 hour energy royalties.

    Osi guaranteed DPOY in 2013. Sign him. :troll:

    Hey, I'm not saying sign Osi because of that statement, but I like his confidence.

    I'd love to have him on our team for the next few seasons.
