Report: Titans Agree to Terms with Zach Brown

New, comments

That is Josina Anderson of ESPN reporting that the Titans have agreed to terms with 2nd round draft pick Zach Brown. As am I writing this, none of the Titans beat writers or the organization have confirmed the story. I am sure it is just a matter of time before they do.

While Mike Martin is my favorite pick of this class, there is no doubt that Brown is the most interesting. The Titans drew a lot of criticism on draft day for taking Brown, who Mike Mayock said was "allergic to contact."

[UPDATE]- John Glennon has confirmed the signing.

There is no doubt that Jerry Gray has some very special plans for Brown. He will be a lot more than just a 4-3 weakside linebacker, but even if he is just that, he is an immediate upgrade over Will Witherspoon.

My guess is that Brown is going to spend a lot of time getting after the quarterback. The Titans didn't address the pass rush need in the way most of expected them to in the draft- by drafting a defensive end. That means they are going to have to get a little bit more creative in their efforts to get pressure. Brown should be at the top of the list of guys that they will use to do that.
