    Love this signing. He can fight for a starting spot, and if he loses will provide depth at every interior line spot. I would still like us to pickup a guard Rd 2 or 3.

    I still want Warmack. This guys is a solid back up and I think he can replace Amano.

    Ruston said he will have a chance to earn a starting spot.

    It would almost be a waste to draft Chance or Cooper at 10 now.. one of those six guys would end up on the bench. We have other needs at CB, DE, and WR. Unless he isn't starting.. but he seems to be starting caliber?
    I'm not totally against the idea of drafting OG at 10, it's just much less of a NEED now.
  4. Fry Hatin' is what I do.

    At the very least this makes Velasco earn the starting job at center. Nothing wrong with competition.

    The Titans have agreed to terms with former Rams center/guard Rob Turner, who visited Baptist Sports Park on Tuesday.

    Turner, who has played six NFL seasons, started all 16 games for the Rams in 2012. He played from 2007-2011 with the New York Jets before joining the Rams prior to last season.

    In his career, Turner has played in 57 games, with 18 starts.

    A 6-foot-4, 308-pounder, Turner is expected to compete for a starting role, or a swing role, with the Titans. Last week, the Titans signed former Bills guard Andy Levitre to a six-year deal, while also placing a one-year tender on Fernando Velasco, the team’s starting center last season.

    Guard Steve Hutchinson retired earlier this month, however, and center/guard Eugene Amano’s future with the team is in question because of his $3.935 million base salary for 2013. Guard Leroy Harris is an unrestricted free agent who’s currently recovering from ACL surgery.

    The addition of Turner, who went to New Mexico, gives the Titans more options in the middle of the offensive line.

    Nice backup for any of the interior positions. We need one of these guys so we should still draft a starting G.

    LT: Roos - Otto
    LG: Levitre - 4th-7th Rounder
    C: Velasco - Turner
    RG: Warford - Turner
    RT: Stewart - Stingily

    I'd be happy with that.
