After playing for Ken Whisenhunt with the Arizona Cardinals, Nick Eason will get a chance to work alongside him as a Tennessee Titans assistant defensive line coach.
The Titans announced Thursday through a team release that Eason has joined Whisenhunt's staff.
Eason spent the final two seasons of his NFL playing career as a defensive lineman for Arizona in 2011-12 while Whisenhunt was coaching the Cardinals. Eason was an intern coach assisting the Cleveland Browns defensive staff in 2013.
Before coming to Arizona, Eason played on two Super Bowl teams with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2007-10.
Eason, who was selected by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round of the 2003 NFL draft, also played for the Cleveland Browns from 2004-06. He had seven sacks in 117 career games.

For the final time this season, we’ll open up the Arizona Cardinals mailbag and see what’s still in there. Let’s take a look.

As we draw closer to the NFL Draft I can’t help but think of the next X – factor type prospect we can grab this year. Last year we all got quite the surprise out of Andre Ellington not only was he a shifty home run threat out of the backfield but also a great receiver.
Call me crazy, but grabbing the other Ellington...
Arizona Cardinals’ cornerback Patrick Peterson just finished his third year in the NFL and is under contract for, at most, two more years.
Per the CBA signed in 2011, players are eligible for a new contract after their third year. With my amazing dot connecting, math-savvy mind, that makes Peterson eligible for a new contact. Peterson isn’t stressing out about it though.
