    Yeah, I was 5 inches shorter and 20 lbs lighter in High school, and the best I ever ran was like a 5.3.

    It seems like he really started to play more in the 2nd half of the season as I notice he started getting more tackles. We need a big run stuffing DE to pair with Wimbley; maybe the front office want a really, really big run stuffing DE.

    Our front office saw week-1 vs New England how hard a giant D-Line is to match up against

    Former Chiefs defensive end Ropati Pitoitua paid a free agency visit to the Titans on Wednesday.

    Pitoitua fits the bill of what the Titans are looking for at the position — he’s a 6-8, 315-pounder who’s capable of playing at several spots on the defensive line.

    Pitoitua played in 15 games for the Chiefs last season, with 10 starts. He finished the year with 51 tackles, and two sacks.

    The Titans were scheduled to visit with defensive end Matt Shaughnessy over the weekend, but he signed with the Cardinals.

    Pitoitua played with the Jets for two seasons before playing with the Chefs last season.

    NT: Hill - Pitoitua
    DT: Casey - Martin - Klug

    I'd be happy with that.

    I think Klug needs to have a good camp to stick. I can see a rookie unseating him.

    I like the idea of adding this guy to a multi-year cheap contract to see what he can develop into. Could be the kind of x-factor we need in our rotation
