Tennessee Titans Agree to Terms with 4 of Their 2013 Draft Picks

According to Jim Wyatt from The Tennessean:

The #Titans have agreed to terms with four draft picks – Brian Schwenke, Lavar Edwards, Khalid Wooten and Daimion Stafford #tntitans

That accounts for one-half of the Tennessee Titans’ 2013 NFL Draft class. All of these players were drafted from Round 4-7. They were signed to four-year contracts with rookie minimum salaries of $405,000 (2013), $495,000 (2014), $585,000 (2015) and $675,000 (2016).Unsigned players include Chance Warmack, Justin Hunter, Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Zaviar Gooden.

This isn’t a surprise and maybe it’s a bit overdue. The Titans haven’t expressed much urgency with signing their 2013 draft picks. As long as all of their players are signed before training camp and they’re not missing any reps, there’s no need to worry about it.

Of the four players who’ve been signed, Brian Schwenke is the only one who has a good chance of making the Week 1 starting lineup. Fernando Velasco and Schwenke are expected to compete for the starting gig at center. The loser of this competition should find himself as the No. 1 sub at center and possibly offensive guard.

Another player who could play a significant role is Lavar Edwards. With every day that passes without a new defensive end, the Titans are closer to entering training camp with their current depth behind Derrick Morgan and Kamerion Wimbley. Edwards has a good chance to become the No. 3 defensive end. That’s a similar role from when he played behind Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery at LSU.
