The #Titans have tendered C/G Fernando Velasco, a restricted free agent, at a second round level. Due to make $2.023 million— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) March 11, 2013
Velasco was solid in 2012. If another team tries to sign him and #Titans don't match, they'd get a 2nd round pick as compensation— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) March 11, 2013
I knew it wasn't going to be long until there was some news on Fernando Velasco, and now we have. This deal pretty much guarantees that Velasco will be a Titan in 2013 because no team is going to spend a second round pick to get him.
This is a good move for the Titans because he was the one guy on the inside that actually played well last season.
Velasco was an undrafted guy that turned into a very good player. There was a time where the Titans turned a low-round or undrafted guy into a solid player every couple of years. Velasco is the first one since Jacob Bell.
