Titans | OL jobs up for grabs

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 20:33:48 -0700

The Tennessee Titans kept nine offensive linemen on the roster for most of last season, and this year OTs Michael Roos and David Stewart, OGs Andy Levitre and Chance Warmack, and Cs Brian Schwenke and Fernando Velasco are considered locks for the roster. After that, OG Robert Turner is likely a very strong candidate for a job, as he can play both guard and center. OLs Byron Stingily and Mike Otto were clear favorites for jobs, but the signing of OT Barry Richardson complicates that battle. OG Chris Spencer (calf) is also in the mix for a job, and he can play both guard and center when healthy.

Titans | Offensive line jobs up for grabs

Fri, 24 May 2013 18:17:13 -0700

The Tennessee Titans have a new-look offensive line, and there are some position battles to watch during training camp and the preseason. One key battle will be C Fernando Velasco against draft pick C Brian Schwenke. OG Chance Warmack is expected to win the right guard job next to OT David Stewart, and newcomer OG Andy Levitre and OT Michael Roos are expected to comprise the left side of the line.

Fantasy Tip: A strong offensive line is music to the ears of potential fantasy owners of RB Chris Johnson, as well as QB Jake Locker. The latter might have fewer grass stains on his back, having ample time to dial up WR Kenny Britt, WR Nate Washington and TE Delanie Walker, among others.
