    Why would they sign this guy? For the longest time, the Titans have been anti-FB. Now they have 2.

    well, if this team is going to be successful at running the ball (especially) with Brown- he's gonna need a lead block

    Troy is 6-0 245

    Ahmard is 5-11 235

    what does that mean ? hell if I know

    Is it possible that they are looking at him more of a Special Teamer? I don't recall seeing this guy play, I don't know, just a thought.

    yea, i hope they stick him on special teams, fleming is young and getting better every game he plays

    hall was a texas longhorn but his only claims to fame there were a 1-yard TD run and catching 3 passes for 45 yards. :winker:

    Maybe Vince owes him a personal favor, and bringing him in is part of Vince's deal?

    Guess this is headed for the Rumor Mill...

    Titans Agree to Terms With Fullback

    SUMMARY: The Titans have agreed to terms with former Texas FB Ahmard Hall who went undrafted in today’s NFL supplemental draft. The 5-foot-11 and 235 pounder will compete against starter Troy Fleming. Coach Jeff Fisher recently said the team expected to use TEs, primarily Bo Scaife, in a fullback role that would supplement Fleming. The former U.S. Marine Sergeant was named the Big 12 Conference Sportsperson of the Year in '04-'05. According to scouting reports, Hall ran the 40 in 4.49 and lifted the 225 pounds 24 times. He is said to be a solid lead blocker with thick upper body and powerful legs. Hill is also said to have good route-running ability though was only moderatately used in the Longhorn passing game. He will turn 27 during the '06 season.
