The Tennessee Titans have signed DT Sammie Hill, formerly of the Detroit Lions, to a 3-year deal this afternoon shortly after signing veteran RB Shonn Greene to a 3-year deal.
I have yet to come across anyone who could say something negative about Sammie Hill. The only thing I’ve heard is that he should be given the chance to start after being held behind Detroit’s Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. He sounds like an upgrade over Sen’Derrick Marks and hopefully the final cog to a line that has struggled to stop opposing team’s run games.
The Titans have had one of the most successful free agencies in recent memory this year, going after needs hard and fast and getting the guys they’ve wanted. It’ll be interesting to watch the rest of their free agency moves play out, but not nearly as interesting as these first two days have been.
The Titans should still be looking to add depth on the defensive line at the defensive end position, where they only have four players I can think of off the top of my head (Wimbley, Morgan, Solomon, and Dawson).
If you’re not excited for the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft, you don’t love Titans football.
