The Titans have agreed to terms with Avery Williamson, the former Kentucky Wildcat linebacker. This leaves only two Titan rookies unsigned; first and second rounders Taylor Lewan and Bishop Sankey respectively.

Williamson was admittedly one of my favored prospects leading up to the draft, and his production should be a healthy addition to a Titans defense than was poor against the run the past two seasons. While he's not a three down starter at this point, there is room for him to come in and play some two down defense.

In typical Titans fashion, they'll probably wait to sign Lewan till the last minute like they did with Chance last season.
