In another one of those pieces about how the defense is going to be different this year, Paul Kuharsky caught up with Kamerion Wimbley, and he said he is excited about playing defensive end this season. Here is what Wimbley had to say about playing defensive end:
"Before I signed here, if you asked me what I was, I was a linebacker," he said. "At end, you get an opportunity to get after the quarterback a lot more. I definitely enjoy it. It’s something I played at Florida State, and I did well. I’m happy to get back to that, and hopefully I can be successful rushing the quarterback in this division."
I agree with the headline of Kuharsky's post- "Wimbley won't fix Titans' pass rush alone," but he is sure going to help. He also has the experience to help Derrick Morgan develop into the talent that the Titans thought they had when they drafted him in the first round a couple of years ago.
