Tennessee Titans should bring in a new center…or guard.


With players still out there who could help the Tennessee Titans, why aren’t they making the call to add a veteran?

Let’s face it, this entire offseason has really been about building an offense that can protect and help Marcus Mariota, and rightfully so. When you have a player who has the chance to become a franchise QB, you need to surround that guy with as much talent as possible.

So with that obvious statement out of the way, why is Brian Schwenke still the starting center for the Tennessee Titans?

Look, Schwenke has shown that he can be a decent backup interior lineman and if the Tennessee Titans have to stick with him I won’t kill them for it, but why would they? There are plenty of options out there that would make this team better at that spot.

For example, Brian De La Puente has been one of PFF’s favorite centers for the last four years. He is consistently effective in every facet of the game, and is still sitting on the open market.

Chris Myers is another option to bring in to the Tennessee Titans roster. The long time Houston Texan is a very good positional blocker who wins with speed and technique. Now, he isn’t a perfect fit for this offense, but he is probably a better version of what Brian Schwenke is.

  • Finally, favorite option is a pipe dream, but it isn’t crazy. The Titans move Andy Levitre over to center at the start of camp (since he has been practicing there already) and bring in an elite left guard in Evan Mathis.

    Honestly, who cares how much money he wants at this point? He is a dominant interior lineman that will help the Tennessee Titans take pressure off of Marcus Mariota, and isn’t that what this entire offseason has been about?

    Bring him in and make this team better, forget the cap. Even if the Tennessee Titans are worried about the cap, did they forget that they have the second most money to spend in the league? I get that they may want to roll some of that over to extend players like Kendall Wright and Chance Warmack, but they have plenty of room to add a player like Evan Mathis with what they have.

    All in all, it just doesn’t make sense to let someone else snatch him up on the open market while the Titans have the opportunity and ability to bring him in and make this team better.
