Ex-Vandy LB Winborn visiting Titans

Former Vanderbilt linebacker Jamie Winborn is in town visiting with the Tennessee Titans Tuesday.

Winborn has been in the NFL since being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 2001. He played four-and-a-half seasons in San Francisco, and since that time has been with Jacksonville, Tampa Bay and Denver, where he has played the past two years.

Winborn, 29, started 11 games on the Broncos defense and had 99 total tackles and 11 passes defensed.

The Titans need depth at the linebacker position, as they are thin behind starters Keith Bulluck, David Thornton and Stephen Tulloch. Both Bulluck and Tulloch can be free agents after the 2009 season.

LINEMAN VISITS: Offensive guard Marcus Johnson of the Minnesota Vikings also visited with the Titans on Tuesday.

The Titans are potentially in the market to add another offensive lineman after the departure of backup tackle Daniel Loper to the Detroit Lions last week.

"He had a good visit there, and we're talking," Johnson's agent Richard Moran said.

Johnson played college football for Ole Miss and has started 18 games for the Vikings in his four seasons in Minnesota.

If he still has it, I hope we sign him. He has been a great player in college and pros.
