Titans looking for help at edge rusher

New, comments

The Tennessee Titans are looking for pass rushers, but are they looking in the wrong places?

Recently I wrote that the Titans need their edge players (Derrick Morgan and Akeem Ayers) to step up this year. While that is true, maybe the answer is more rest and more rotation on the edges. Apparently the Titans are doing their due diligence on players at that position.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>The <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Titans&amp;src=hash">#Titans</a> worked out LBs Quentin Groves &amp; Marvin Mitchell yesterday, source says Groves is interesting, indicates seeking pass-rush help</p>&mdash; Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) <a href="https://twitter.com/RapSheet/statuses/478968046350901250">June 17, 2014</a></blockquote>

While I think Horton would have a familiarity with Groves that could prove beneficial, the most attractive option out there was recently let go of by the Baltimore Ravens.

Adrian Hamilton was one of my favorite flier players coming out of the 2012 draft. As an edge rusher he has a unique blend of speed and flexibility that could make him intriguing to a DC like Ray Horton who could see his potential. His 22 sacks in 2011 was fun to watch, and while he played against sub par talent he was fun to watch.
