    SUMMARY: With the future status of DEs Antwan Odom and Travis LaBoy uncertain, the Titans brought two DEs to camp yesterday. Former Seahawk and Cardinal Garrett McIntyre and Adam Roberts, who spent time on the Titans roster earlier this offseason, agreed to terms. The 6-3, 250 pound McIntyre was a walk on at Fresno State and was undrafted in this year's NFL Draft. He is known for being undersized but having a big first step and non-stop motor. Roberts is 6-2, 254 pounds was undrafted from Cincinnati and is also considered fast off the edge in scouting reports. He was mainly projected as a LB in a 34 defense.

    Simple question...

    Can either of them play the run? I don't care about the pass rush just that they get in the runningback's way.

    So going into the first game our DEs will be KVB, schobel and one of these guys?

    I think we'll see Reese pull in one or two after the first round of cuts. If Odom's knee is bad, he may start on the PUP and I don't know if Schobel is a sure thing if final cuts provide a better option.

    How about DT?

    The fins signed dan wilkerson to a three year deal but i couldn't find the terms. A guy like that would have come in handy as well if the cost was reasonable because with him we could move starks outside on run downs.

    I think Dan Wilkerson was 3 years for 3 million

    Falcons signed Grady Jackson for 3 years.

    Might as well go find Gilbert Brown. He must be at around 410 these days.

    Garrett McIntyre i've watched through his college career. Was very solid for us. How that translates to NFL is yet to be seen. Obviously the Cards and Seachickens didn't find a use for him, but I wish him the best of luck hope he makes the squad at least. Good to see these Fresno State players on the Titans. So far the players we've got from our fine school have played well. Lorenzo Neal and Billy V.
