The Tennessee Titans jumped at the opportunity to solidify their pass rush when the Raiders were forced to release Kamerion Wimbley due to salary cap issues.
Wimbley was never a name I was familiar with, but that’s my fault, not his. He has been an solid player in the league and should excel as a DE for the Tennessee Titans.
Today’s continuation of PFF’s “Three Years of Tackling Efficiency” series was edge rushers. This new favorite of many Titans fans ranked 3rd in most active outside rushers.
When the Raiders first released Wimbley, I was quick to look him up and became quite certain the Titans would go after him after they passed on Mario Williams, as well as another couple quality DE’s.
Wimbley has played in a lot of 3-4 defenses and goes back and forth between the LB and DE spot, but he should primarily be playing DE for the Titans, though I wouldn’t be shocked to seem him dropping back on some plays.
Either way, whether you watch highlights or just go back to the stats, Wimbley looks like he should be a very reliable DE and I am excited to watch him tear it up this season.
I miss seeing QB’s get hit.
