According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, who is always in the know, the Titans have worked out 3 offensive guards: Leonard Davis, Vincent Manuwai, Duke Robinson, and Stanley Daniels.

It’s likely that all of these guards could help the Titans in the run game. After all, it doesn’t get worse than last place.

As Wilson brings up, Leonard Davis played as a stalwart in the run game for the Arizona Cardinals and most recently the Dallas Cowboys. At 6’7″ and 353 lbs, it’s an understatement to say that he is merely just a “pretty big” guy. He moves people out of the way. Davis recently turned 33.

Vince Manuwai played for the Jaguars during the height of their running game years: 2001-2007 and was released when the Lockout was lifted this season. Manuwai reportedly weighed in at too much and had a few injury concerns. As Titans fans, I’m sure everyone is all too familiar with how well the Jaguars ran left and Manuwai was a big part of that. Manuwai stands 6’2″ and 333 lbs. He’s a big dude and if healthy, he can provide a great force in the run game although he does lack a little in the pass blocking. Manuwai is 31 years old.

Duke Robinson stands pretty large as well–6’5″ and 330 lbs. The grandnephew of Smokey Robinson (the singer), Robinson entered the draft as a high-profile prospect  and never played a down. Selected in the 5th round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers, Robinson disappointed many with his relatively unknown falling out of the league. It’s possible the Titans can resurrect Robinson, but doubtful. The two-time All-American in college has been a free agent for two years. Robinson is 25 years old.

At 6’4″ and 335 lbs, Stanley Daniels shows you that the Titans are obviously interested in getting bigger up front. According to nfl.com and wikipedia, Daniels is a guy that floats around the league and hasn’t been able to do more than tag along on a practice squad. I don’t imagine he would be added to the active roster.

    The thing I like about the new coaching staff is they don’t seem afraid to bring in guys to work out. If nothing else it should motivate guys to bring their game up. Does it work every time? no not always but better than saying we are happy with the guys on the roster. At the end of the day it is Munchaks first year and I believe this team needs to upgrade talent all over but it cant be done overnight.
