Who knows where the Tennessee Titans have found all of this money after all of those salary cap concerns that we were told they didn’t have (we’re joking of course), but as the month of May winds down and its final full week approaches another Friday, the two-tone blue has added another body to what’s becoming a never-ending list of trench warriors.

This time, the franchise announces the signing of Christian DiLaoro. Let’s not waste a ton of time. What follows is a few notes that Tennessee Titans should jot down.

Here are three fun facts following the Tennessee Titans latest roster move.

1. Who is this guy?

Christian DiLauro is a six-foot-six, 300-pound depth signing that went undrafted in 2018 before landing with the Cleveland Browns. Since then, he’s seen more locker rooms than any young man would like.

As he enters his fourth NFL season, this is the fifth team he’s been signed to, which normally means a guy is talented enough to play in the NFL but no team is willing to give him a long-term opportunity. Sadly, if he’s going to make the Titans roster, he’s going to have to leapfrog quite a few guys on the depth chart.

2. Let’s take a walk down memory lane.

In addition to the Browns, DiLauro has spent time on the San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans, and Pittsburgh Steelers rosters. Prior to that, he earned a name for himself at the University of Illinois as he earned Big Ten All-Freshman team honors in 2014.

3. Here’s an update on what the Tennessee Titans offensive line looks like now.

Currently, the Titans have 16 offensive linemen on the roster, including seven offensive tackles (that’s eight tackles if you include DiLauro). Again, as the low man on the totem pole, it’s hard to envision a scenario in which he makes the roster, but if a few injuries occur and he has a great camp you never know.

Keep an eye on this young man as we all move through the preseason. Remember that there are only three preseason games now though.
