Titans agree to terms with Rashad Johnson

The free safety spot has been filled.

Jon Robinson has filled yet another need, signing former Arizona Cardinal safety Rashad Johnson. Johnson is believed to be Michael Griffin's replacement, playing the free safety role beside Da'Norris Searcy.

It will be a one year deal for Johnson.

Johnson began as a walk-on at Alabama, but eventually became a two year starter. He was a third round selection back in 2009, becoming a starter for the Cardinals. In the last two seasons, Johnson started 30 games for Arizona.

What does this signing mean? It means another need is marked off the board. It means Jon Robinson won't have to force a draft pick to fill a need in April. It really opens things up for the Titans' front office to take the best player available at pick 33 and beyond.

The Titans needed veteran leadership with the exit of Michael Griffin and that's exactly what they got with Johnson.
