The three veteran pass rushers Usi Umenyiora, Dwight Freeney and John Abraham are all garnering interest from several parties. One unheralded contender could be the Tennessee Titans according to TitanInsider:
The Titans have a number of players at need positions on their radar as the free agency period nears. Defensive end is one position where the Titans have at least discussed a number of players and may bring some of them in for visits. Among the ends that list are Osi Umemyiora of the New York Giants, Michael Bennett of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, John Abraham (a cap cut) from the Atlanta Falcons and perhaps Dwight Freeney of the Indianapolis Colts. It is not yet known if the Titans will look at Cliff Avril of the Detroit Lions, who might command a bigger contract than the others.
If they can't reach a deal with Sen'Derrick Marks before Tuesday, defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois is a possible replacement.
As Jared Cook's market threatens to spiral out of control, the Titans are studying Dustin Keller and Martellus Bennett as alternatives at tight end.
With plenty of salary-cap space and several glaring needs,Titans general manager Ruston Webster will be one of the league's most aggressive free-agent pursuers next week. He's going to have his work cut out for him if he wants to keep one of Freeney, Abraham or Umenyiora out of the clutches of contenders.
