Between The Posts: Some Needed Reinforcements

New, comments

The Titans know they aren't a finished product.

Many have speculated that the Tennessee Titans still need help along the offensive line, especially to protect their new investment at QB, Marcus Mariota, and to open lanes for a new-look corps of backfield players. The front office of the teams apparently agree with this line of thinking, and met with former Vikings and Rams Center, Scott Wells, today. Wells may not get inked, but its a sign that the Titans staff understands their potential weak links.

The team also inked their second round selection, WR Dorial Green-Beckham, to his rookie contract. Mariota and Poutassi are the only Titans players to remain unsigned.

Elsewhere around the league, the San Diego Chargers announced that they will not be signing their all-pro safety, Eric Weddle, in 2015. This comes despite his protest of the team's OTA's and his verbal unease with the team in the past few months. He may be expensive, but he's the best defender the team has. This opens up the possibility that the veteran defense-man may hit free agency next Summer.

In other contract news, Carolina Panthers fans will be excited to know that the team and their QB, Cam Newton, are close to agreeing on a contract extension that would ensure that Newton remained a Panther through 2020. It's expected to be five years, $100+ million. Is that too much for Newton?

The Titans got a little love in this piece on underrated players. Delanie Walker was the choice at TE after a stellar 2014 campaign, and Derrick Morgan was a runner up for the choice at OLB.
