Titans to host Kearse, three others

Wednesday, March 5, 2008 at 10:57am

The Tennessee Titans began their quest for help on the defensive line and offensive line, hosting three defensive linemen and an offensive lineman over the next two days.

Not only were the Titans playing host to their one-time Pro Bowl standout Jevon Kearse, the team also was hosting Indianapolis Colts free agent Josh Thomas on Wednesday and bringing in ex-Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman Ellis Wyms on Thursday.

Thomas, 26, is scheduled to be in Nashville today to visit with Titans officials.

Agent Alan Herman, who represents Thomas said the Titans could be a good fit for his client.

“With the type of defensive line they have in there, I think he could get eight to 10 sacks,” Herman said. “We’re serious about them. We’ll see [if they’re serious about us]. I think it could be a good fit for him if they’re interested. ”

Wyms, 29, could be a valuable swing guy for Tennessee as he can play both inside and outside.

“He has played some end on first and second downs and slides inside on third down,” agent Brian Levy said.

The Titans used Kevin Carter that way when he was in Tennessee. Carter, incidentally, is a free agent as well.

Thomas has two other visits scheduled, but declined to identify the teams.

On the offensive line, the Titans are entertaining the Colts’ Jake Scott, who has started all 16 games for the past three years for Indianapolis.

Herman also represents former Titan Rocky Boiman, who is a free agent with the Colts. As the Titans look to upgrade the depth on their special teams and at linebacker, Boiman is interested in perhaps a look at returning to Tennessee.

Key words: "one time". He hasn't played well in a while...if he can even stay healthy. We shouldn't waste our money.
