Just hours after bringing back running back Jeremy McNichols, the Tennessee Titans are now reportedly set to add back another familiar face. According to Field Yates of ESPN, the team is expected to bring back linebacker Will Compton.
The Titans are expected to sign LB Will Compton, per source. Compton spent the 2018 season with Tennessee and co-hosts the @BussinWTB podcast with OT Taylor Lewan. The Boy is back.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) August 26, 2020
Compton played for the team back in 2018. He moved on and played for the Raiders in 2019, signing mid-season with the team. The seven-year veteran remained on the open market throughout free agency, searching for a new opportunity. As it turns out, he now seems set to join Bussin’ with the Boys co-host Taylor Lewan once again in Nashville.
The Titans do have a need at the position. Rashaan Evans and Jayon Brown are the starters, but the team doesn’t have much depth behind them. Second-year man David Long, special teams ace Nick Dzubnar and now Will Compton will now round out the depth chart.
Compton recorded 25 total tackles with the Raiders last year. He will turn 31 years old next month.
