Titans linebacker Shaun Phillips sings praises of 3-4

Shaun Phillips had by all accounts a pretty productive season as a defensive end with the Broncos last year. In their 4-3 defense he piled up 10 sacks — the third-highest total of his career — and added 35 tackles, five pass break-ups and a pair of forced fumbles for a Super Bowl team. Nevertheless, Phillips believes the hybrid 3-4 system the Titans are switching to this season...

Titans notebook: LB Shaun Phillips finds comfort in 3-4 scheme

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- After playing nine years at outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense for the Chargers, Shaun Phillips felt out of place last season playing defensive end in a 4-3 alignment for the Broncos. Sure, he helped the Broncos win the AFC championship and make the Super Bowl with a team-high 10 sacks, but he never felt fully comfortable in the new position. After signing a...

Tennessee Titans looking at another potential free agent quarterback

It’s conceivable to imagine the Tennessee Titans drafting another quarterback in this year’s NFL draft. It wasn’t as likely they’d chase another soon-to-be free agent quarterback, though. That is until this fell into our laps: One team thinking to give Pryor shot to make squad; the Tennessee Titans. Likely not to trade for him… could give him look if FA. #Raiders — Victor...

Free Agent QB Rusty Smith Works Out For The Saints

  Howard Balzer of the LockerDome.com reports that free agent QB Rusty Smith worked out for the Saints on Thursday. Smith previously worked out for the Giants in recent weeks.

The Tennessee Titans are playing in one of the 10 best NFL games in 2014

After much anticipation, it is now believed that the NFL will release its 2014 schedule on Tuesday, April 22. At that point, we’ll find who plays who, from Week 1 to Week 17, including all of the primetime and national TV games; that’ll provide fans with somewhat of a road map for the season.

How Shaun Phillips sacked the passer in 2013 ☆

To get a better idea of what the Titans got when they signed Shaun Phillips, I decided to watch the 10.0 sacks he had playing for the Broncos in 2013. While the Broncos are more of a 4-3 than I expect the Titans to be, I still think this was a useful exercise. Philips played 770 snaps (68% of the time), which is probably a good estimate of the maximum for his expected 2014 playing...

Johnson visited with the Jets all day on Tuesday and said he had more visits to make.  The fact that he was signed before leaving town seems to indicate that either the Jets wooed...

Tennessee saw Johnny Manziel snagged at No. 4 from the Cleveland Browns and Khalil Mack fly off the board at No. 5 to the Oakland Raiders. The Titans missed out on the star power of Manziel and the pass-rushing ability of Mack, but Eric Ebron, Tennessee’s sleeper...

Dexter McCluster's skills wow Titans teammates

If any Titans player can offer a good scouting report of running back/wide receiver Dexter McCluster, it's probably fellow free-agent signee Shaun Phillips. That's because the veteran linebacker spent part of the past four seasons – three in San Diego and one in Denver – trying to tackle McCluster, who played for the AFC West rival Chiefs during that stretch.

Analyzing Dexter McCluster, running back ☆

When the Titans made Dexter McCluster their first signing of free agency this offseason, I noted he had played both wide receiver and running back in the NFL, and noted Whisenhunt’s challenge was to make him a more effective player than he had been. Since then, the Titans have indicated McCluster will at least start off playing more running back than wide receiver. To get a better...
