The Tennessee Titans need defensive tackles, have I said that yet?
While Harold Landry and Daquan Jones seem to be bonding really well this offseason, the fact is that sooner or later the starting DTs will be Jurrell Casey and Jeffery Simmons and by then everything will be right with the world.
However, until then the Titans need to figure out how to get the most out of the open spot on the defensive line.
While Day isn’t perfect and probably isn’t a true starter caliber player, he is a guy who can get upfield and pressure quarterbacks.
Despite never starting in the NFL, he has always managed to tally a sack and has manged four in the last two years. This is a continuation of his collegiate career where he made a habit of getting in the backfield, tallying 15.5 TFLs and 4 sacks in his final year at Notre Dame.

Get to Luck, Watson and Foles. That is the mission of the defense this year and if they accomplish that consistently they will win double digit games. If he plays 40% of the snaps for the Titans I think he would get 2+ sacks which is more than Austin Johnson and Jones combined for in all of last year.
I know sacks aren’t everything and that sometimes guys are asked to do more than just rush upfield. However, if a guy can rush upfield, they usually do because that is a huge plus.
The moral of the story is to get more push up the middle and Day can help the Tennessee Titans do that.
