    Both Roos and Stewert have are under contract through the 2014 season with the last year of the deal being voidable by the Titans. If we pick up Roos option for the 2014 season then he will be a FA in 2015.

    2013: Roos | Stewart
    2014: Roos | Kouandjio
    2015: Kouandjio | replacement RT

    According to NFL Network, this guy Lane Johnson OT can run a 4.7 40 time. Impressive.

    3rd best Tackle, maybe we take him for guard?

    Way too lengthy to play guard. Hes legs looked almost skinny compared to the other guys.

    But he runs a 4.7 40! Tackles don't run that, he's so fast he might play TE too in goal line stuff.

    He's a former QB, so Guard seems like a easy move.

    Not sure the importance of a guard running a 4.7. He can get down field? How often do you honestly see guards that far down the field. The good ones make an initial block, run up 2-4 yards and chip the next defender.

    Special teamer? Fumble recovery expert? INT defender?

    Guards pull, so they have to have some speed.

    That is true. Thought I don't remember us doing guard pulls this last year.. Something that bugged me. That has a lot to do with agility tho and good feet. Decastro and Warmack are the ultimate pulling guards.

    I'm just looking at all angles. We need better players than Amano and Harris

    Backups. Yes. Yes we do. I really like that the team was talking to Swenke at the senior bowl. He impressed at C
