With the Titans lacking in the pass rush department, they are looking to bring in two veterans in Dwight Freeney and John Abraham, both would likely come in and play the situational down-rush role.The Titans were only able to account for 39 total sacks, which equals the amount their competitors got against them.John Abraham will complete his two day visit of the Titans’ facilities this Friday, and if the Titans like what they see, a contract could be completed as early as Saturday morning.John Abraham is the more favored of the two veterans as reported by NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.Both Freeney and Abraham rank as NFL.com and ESPN’s top two remaining free agents. With their salary expectations not being met, the Titans are looking to pick up a veteran on a basement price. This is normally how Bud Adams does his shopping in free agency.Derrick Morgan, the former 2010 first round selection, started his career with the Titans not having a veteran defensive end he could learn from. Perhaps bringing in an older player can help the Titans’ end become the player he was drafted to be.Morgan stepped up his play last season after a rookie season that had an ACL injury end it early, the bounce-back season was not one to remember for Morgan either. And 2012 brought Morgan a little more success as he tallied 6.5 sacks and 59 total tackles; drastic improvements over the numbers of his first two seasons.Maybe the Titans add Abraham which is the more likely of the two, or Freeney, who brings Super Bowl winning experience to the side.Potentially the Titans have the cap space to sign both veterans for a season at least. Just to kick the tires per say. Either way adding one of these two players can help the Titans’ lackluster pass rush immensely.
