Tennessee Titans Daily Links: His Name Is Ruud Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans didn't just sign Barrett Ruud to play MLB, they brought him in to be the on the field leader of the front seven. Ruud was the signal caller in Tampa Bay, and Jovan Haye has some great things to say about his former-and-once-again teammate:

"He’s a smart guy, one of the smartest linebackers I’ve been around," Haye said. "A middle linebacker has to be able to line everybody up around him, and when I played with him, he knew everything. We rarely had any busts. I know he’ll get our guys in the right place."

Tennessee_titans_30x21 David Boclair asks if Matt Hasselbeck is ready to mentor Jake Locker in the same way Brett Favre helped out Hasselbeck back in the day. By all accounts Hasselbeck is completely on board with helping Locker learn how to prepare, endure and overcome the rigors of the NFL schedule. That's a damned good thing for Titans fans to be hearing after the past 5 years.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 One Bucs beat-writer fears that the departure of Ruud could stifle the improvement of their defense. 

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Leroy Harris is giddy and ready to get back on the field now that he's locked up for two more years.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Former Titan DT DE Marcus Howard caught on with the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL.Howard spent all of last year on the IR, but his 6'0", 245 lbs frame isn't a great fit for Gray's new system.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jamaal Anderson ended up signing with the Colts in a move I'm guessing isn't a huge endorsement of Jerry Hughes.
