Rapoport: Titans interested in Dwight Freeney AND John Abraham

New, comments

The Titans are in the market for a pass rusher. Could they land the best two veterans still on the market?

So is he saying there is a possibility the Titans could sign John Abraham and Dwight Freeney? That doesn't make a lot of sense because they would be getting two situational guys that do the exact same thing, but they can both get after the passer. Good thing Jeff Fisher isn't still here because there is no way he could get those two guys on the field at the same time.

If I have to choose one or the other, I would pick Abraham. Freeney has pretty much always been a one-trick pony. Abraham is by no means an anchor in run support, but he gives you more there than Freeney does. Abraham would be more valuable if Kamerion Wimbley or Derrick Morgan were to get hurt.
