    SUMMARY: The Titans continue to explore the free agency market. Steelers free safety Chris Hope visited Baptist Sports Park yesterday while Giants linebacker Nick Greisen and Seahawks linebacker Kevin Bentley are coming in today. The 5-11, 206-pound Hope led the Steelers with three interceptions last season, and recorded 97 tackles. Reese indicated the Titans are one of at least three teams in the running for Hope, who has two more visits set up for later this week, including one with the 49ers. Greisen is regarded as a better fit at middle linebacker, an area of need for the Titans. He finished with 79 tackles last season. Bentley, who is capable of playing all three linebacker spots, had 22 tackles last season for Seattle.

    I think we will sign one as a backup to Sirmon incase he can't take it as a MLB.

    Bentley is handy because he can play all three positions, making him an ideal backup.

    which is more important right now, another LB or a safety. We can get by with LB's we have now esp since we signed Thornton. I think we go after Hope. It is a bigger need

    Greisen will start in the middle if he signs. He's an animal.

    Remember Floyd said that he would be willing to replace players with better ones. So I could see us signing a MLB and cutting Sirmon.

    Oh and still having money to sign Hope. I can't believe what big players we have been in free agency. It is giving me a lot of hope for the future. no pun intended
