Today former Tennessee Titans fullback Ahmard Hall visited with the Miami Dolphins according to multiple sources. Ahmard Hall has had a nice career with the Titans but it appears his time with them is over. At the end of this past season, he told the press that he didn’t feel like he’d be re-signed.

Looks like he was right.

I wish him the best of luck, where ever he may land. He was always a point of pride for the Titans, being a former Marine. It’ll be sad not seeing him out there in Titans blue but the Titans are in the middle of a youth movement that looks like it’s a good thing for the Titans, having young budding stars such as Karl Klug, Jurrell Casey, Alterraun Verner, Kenny Britt, Damian Williams, Jake Locker, and others.

That leads us to Quinn Johnson. Johnson was originally traded to the Titans by the Green Bay Packers for a conditional pick (the Titans basically got him for free, as they didn’t actually end up losing a pick in the trade) as a replacement for Ahmard Hall while he served his suspension for breaking the leagues substance rules. After Hall returned from his suspension Johnson was released.

Johnson found his way back to the Titans in late December through the waiver wire and now looks to be taking over the FB position for the Titans. I’m kind of excited about it. He doesn’t have an illustrious career obviously but he brings a lot to the table. The 6-1, 263 lbs FB was drafted in the 5th round of the 2009 draft by the Green Bay Packers as he came out of LSU.

Johnson doesn’t have a plethora of stats piled up behind him, never actually having recorded a single rush and recording only eight receptions in his career thus far (for 60 yards) but I like him. He’s obviously a big guy. That’s got to be a bonus in the blocking department. He also shows the ability to get pretty decent yards when being thrown the ball. This is his first shot at being the main fullback on a roster so it’ll be interesting to see how well he does. Hopefully he’ll help open up running lanes for the better known Chris Johnson.

As Coach Munchak said this last year, “We went 3-1 when he was here.”
