    SUMMARY: LB Peter Sirmon, primarily a strong-side linebacker throughout his career, has been working at the middle spot during the teams OTAs since the Titans signed former Colt David Thornton. "One of the first things you've got to do in football is you've got to find your role, and as soon as you find your role, you've got to play to it," Sirmon said. "If they ask you to change that role or do something else, then you've got to adapt again. I think this is getting to be the role that I am probably going to play, and I am looking to play it well." Sirmon is sure to be approached about lowering his scheduled $2.4 million base salary and still isn't guaranteed to stick as the Titans drafted North Carolina State LB Stephen Tulloch in the fourth round. "Pete's the type of guy who's going to do what he has to do to stay on the field and if it's play middle linebacker, he's going to play middle linebacker," LB Keith Bulluck said.

    Its good to see Thornton flying around the field.

    Another under-rated pick up.

    Let's hope Sirmon can be a monster in the middle.

    If Sirmon is completly recovered he good be just what we need in the middle . He understands our defense better than anyone else on the field, has great instincts and can make up for his lack of speed with his smarts. He will probably only be on the field 30% to 40% of the time so he should stay fresh for the entire game. Our lb situation could be much better this year.

    IF Sirmon can find his gonads he will be much faster than Kassell. Probably as good a tackler - although that is what Kassell is known for. And hopefully Sirmons football smarts will follow him to MLB.

    I want Sirmon to suceed at MLB, but I still have problems with his "resignation" fax.
