No one can call the Tennessee Titans’ offseason additions offensive.

Cornerback Tye Hill agreed to contract terms Tuesday as general manager Mike Reinfeldt and his staff maintained their free agency focus on the defense. All three levels – line, linebacker and secondary – now have added a fresh face.

Originally drafted in the first round (15th overall) by the St. Louis Rams in 2006 out of Clemson, Hill spent three seasons with the Rams and was with Atlanta in 2009. He played all 16 games as a rookie but a total of just 20 (no more than eight in a single season) in the three years since.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder has five career interceptions, three of which came during his rookie season.

Previously this offseason Tennessee signed linebacker Wil Witherspoon and defensive end Jason Babin.

The Titans allowed an average of 365.6 yards per game, which was 28th in the NFL. Their total yards allowed were the second-most in 25 years.
