The Titans continued doing business on Thursday, re-signing return man Darius Reynaud to a one-year deal. Jim Wyatt indicated Reynaud will make roughly $1 million. Reynaud did a pretty good job on punt and kick returns in 2012, leading the league in Football Outsiders' punt return value metric. I covered his effect on field position in some detail, so I won't rehash that. He played a very modest role on offense under Chris Palmer as a running back/slot receiver, but once Dowell Loggains took over almost never saw the field (9 snaps in 5 games). Approximately all of his value to the 2013 Titans would be as a return man. I'm not convinced Reynaud will be a member of the 2013 Titans, though. While he had a fine year as a return man, it was not so great that he is clearly superior to any other option. The likely financial implications of any cut would not be too hard to handle.

However, they are already being criticized for spending recklessly and overpaying for certain free agents. Tennessee has signed offensive lineman Andy Levitre (six years, $46.8 million), tight...

Shonn Greene, the Titans, and short yardage rushing success

When the Titans signed Shonn Greene this week, the key number that was bandied about as to why the signing was a great move was Shonn Greene was incredibly successful in 2012 on converting third-and-short into first downs. It's true, he was. Eleven times Shonn Greene ran the ball on third down and three or less, and 11 times that resulted in a first down. It's also true that...

Titans add DT Sammie Lee Hill, RB Shonn Greene, LB Moise Fokou

A day after signing three players on the first day of the new league year, the Titans showed they were even more determined to make a splash in free agency by inking three more players, defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill, running back Shonn Greene, and linebacker Moise Fokou. As I noted in yesterday's post, Sammie Lee Hill is a guy I need to get smarter on. The Titans had declared...
