    The Titans have expressed an interest in 49ers defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois, a free agent who would give the team some serious bulk in the middle of the defensive line.

    Jean Francois, who played at LSU, was a rotational player last season on a solid San Francisco 49ers defensive line. A 6-foot-3, 295-pounder, he lined up at nose guard and defensive end.

    He played in 16 games for the 49ers last season, and had 22 tackles and a sack in three starts last season. He’s played in 51 career games, with five starts.

    ehh ...I assume they want him to play DT. If thats the case he isn't that big for DT. Not what we need at least. I guess he could probably be more depth.

    I would hope we are interested in big defensive lineman. I don't want any small lineman.

    Sure, if he plays the position we are least concerned about.
