Zaviar Gooden and the loss of Zach Brown

Maybe the biggest downer note in the Titans’ otherwise fantastic season-opening win in Kansas City was the loss of inside linebacker Zach Brown to what proved to be a season-ending shoulder injury just four plays into the game. Brown’s replacement was his backup, second-year man Zaviar Gooden. I’ve never tried to hide what I thought of Brown-that I didn’t see him as a real...

Tennessee Titans Select OLB Zaviar Gooden In The 2013 NFL Draft

3.35 Tennessee Titans Zaviar Gooden, OLB, Missouri (6-1 ½, 234) With the 35th pick in the third round of the NFL Draft, the Titans selected OLB Zaviar Gooden from Missouri.
