We continue our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head into the offseason with a look at the defensive ends.

The post-post-hype sleeper cometh.
Jared Cook, the 6-foot-5 and 249-pound Tennessee Titans tight end who runs the 40 in an astounding 4.5 seconds, has bee the twinkle in fantasy owners’ eye for going on three years. We don’t simply want him to be good – we know he can be, because we’ve seen it.
If you mute your TV on a football Sunday and listen very carefully – perhaps...
After covering the defensive ends and tackles, we turn our position to the next level of the defense, specifically the middle linebackers, as we continue our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position heading into the 2013 offseason.
When we addressed the Mike backer last offseason and again in the preseason, it looked like the Titans had found a solution for 2012...
