Tennessee Titans Add OLB Depth with Moise Fokou Signing

The Tennessee Titans are starting the less exciting signing now with the addition of OLB Moise Fokou. Obviously, the Titans are already set for starters at OLB, but they are rather thin at depth. Moise Fokou is a solid depth signing. Here’s a brief look at Fokou’s stats, courtesy of ESPN.com:

Depth signings are never the prettiest and flashiest of signings, but this look like a fairly good one. Solid production over his career and the fact that OLB Will Witherspoon looks to be gone via free agency makes it all add up.

Depth signings should make up most, if not all, of the Titans remaining free agent signings this year. It would have been nice to see the Titans add a solid rotational DE to the mix, but with all the spending they’ve already done, the Titans may be forced to wait until the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft until truly addressing the position.

The Titans top remaining needs, in order, are RG, DE, and SS. I expect the Titans to bring back OL Fernando Velasco to play center and then odds are they find a starter for their RG position and add a DE and SS in the early rounds of the draft.

We’ll see. They’ve done well so far this offseason. No reason to start doubting them now…
