The Tennessee Titans confirmed the signing of former Browns, Colts and Cardinals defensive tackle Trevon Coley.
Coley (6-1, 311) has appeared in 44 games, including 31 starts, in four seasons with the Browns (2016-18), Colts (2019) and Cardinals (2020). He’s an experienced player with some nice production to his name. He’s recorded 95 tackles and 3.5 sacks for his career. Coley initially signed with the Ravens after going undrafted out of Florida Atlantic in 2016, and he’s also spent time with the Washington Football Team and the New York Jets.
Coley spent the 2020 season with the Titans’ Week 1 opponent, the Arizona Cardinals.
This is an interesting signing. Coley should have every opportunity to prove that he’s more than just a camp body. He should get a chance to compete with the likes of Teair Tart, Bruce Hector and Larrell Murchison over the next few months as the team looks to replace DaQuan Jones.
Let’s take a deeper look into how PFF graded Coley throughout the 2020 season. Coley appeared in six games for Arizona this past season.
Total snaps played on defense: 188
Run defense snaps: 71
Pass rush snaps: 117
Solo tackles: 8
* DL with at least 20% of league-highest volume are ranked.
Overall grade: 51.2
Run defense grade: 48.2
Pass rush grade: 58.7
These numbers don’t jump off the screen, but there’s a reason that Coley has stuck around in the NFL for this long. It’s worth monitoring how Coley performs throughout training camp and during the preseason.
