    NFL's Ian Rapoport is reporting it is a 1 year deal. Thoughts?

    This guy had 3 sacks and 2 INTs back in 2010 or 2011 for the patriots, he might provide something for us.

    Wasn't he most recently a Dolphin? I do remember he played pretty well for the Pats.

    More depth behind :injured:

    I'm starting to get worried that we're gonna end up releasing Crutches at some point if he can't stay healthy.

    Yea... I thought he was at least decent with the Pats, but I can't remember if he's MLB or OLB?

    I'm hoping MLB.

    The Titans have signed former Patriots linebacker Gary Guyton to a one-year deal.

    Guyton joins the Titans at a time when the team is banged up at the position, as linebackers Colin McCarthy, Zaviar Gooden and Greg Jones all missed practice Saturday with injuries.

    Guyton played from 2008-2011 with the Patriots, where he appeared in 60 career games. He started all 16 games for the Patriots in 2009, when he he 85 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

    He was most recently with the Chargers in 2012.

    The Titans worked out Guyton, who went to Georgia Tech, last year before he signed with the Chargers. He also worked out for the team recently. Guyton has also spent time with the Cowboys and Dolphins in his NFL career.

    I'd have no problem with cutting "They call me Mr. Glass" McCarthy, and at the very least filling his spot with someone that can stay healthy and at least be serviceable. We have Moses, so I think he can fill the starting spot.

    He played mostly MLB for the Pats.

    He has been been on 3 or 4 other teams since the Pats but they all released him pretty quickly. Depth is always good I suppose.

    I liked him back when he was at GA Tech. We could always use competition at MLB, so I guess there is nothing wrong with this signing at all.
