Titans FA: DE Matt Shaughnessy Scheduled to Visit

John Grieshop

Could the Titans dip into the Raiders pool again?



Per Jim Wyatt, end Matt Shaughnessy is scheduled to meet with the Titans on Friday if he completes a visit with the Cardinals. He fits what the Titans are looking for in their defensive ends: A very big body that can hold up against the run. He comes in at a listed 6'5 285 so if he were to sign with the Titans, paired up with Sammie Lee Hill's 6'4 329, that's a big load of beef in the trenches. Shaughnessy is yet another Raiders cap casualty (they seem to always have a supply of those). I also featured him in my tier two free agent post as a potential Titans target. Does Webster read my stuff? Hmmm.

Would I sign him if the price is right? Absolutely. The Titans depth issue at end is a glaring one that needs immediate resolution. They simply cannot ask for Kamerion Wimbley and Derrick Morgan to take almost 90% of the snaps again. It's counterproductive as both wore down as the snap totals mounted at a horrific pace. Shaughnessy would help alleviate the burden by rotating with Wimbley/Morgan in certain packages. He could play end while Wimbley slides back into outside linebacker role at times. If he's willing to come here to a more "stable" environment for the right price, then come on aboard. After the success of Wimbley last year, I don't see why the Titans shouldn't bring him in for at least a look.
