The Titans also used their second-round draft pick on Zach Brown, boosting speed at the position. Defensive coordinator Jerry Gray is pretty blunt about expecting much more out of the group after wrapping up the team's offseason program Thursday. Witherspoon says he believes they will deliver with the benefit of an entire offseason after the entire defense essentially jumped into training camp a year ago due to the lockout.
