Cornerback Tye Hill’s workout with the Tennessee Titans apparently went well, according to his agent. But Hill was not alone in visiting Baptist Sports Park to audition for the Titans.
Veteran cornerback Ken Lucas also worked out for Tennessee, and also worked out safety Aaron Rouse. Safety Tra Battle visited on Thursday as well.
Lucas, 31, spent last season with the Seattle Seahawks, his second tour of duty with the team, after four years with the Carolina Panthers. General manager Mike Reinfeldt is familiar with him from his own time in the Seahawks front office.
“He was in there to work out today. I don’t know what they’re looking for, if they’re looking for a veteran guy or a younger player, but Ken is still in great shape and can still play,” agent Bus Cook said.
Lucas played in 16 games with six starts for the Seahawks last year and has 25 career pass interceptions.
Hill, released by the Atlanta Falcons last week, is a former first-round pick of the St. Louis Rams. After his workout, Hill was believed to be taking a physical for the team on Thursday afternoon.
“I talked to Tye and he was really pleased with his workout there,” agent Doug Hendrickson said.
Hill, 27, is also drawing some interest from the Minnesota Vikings and Cincinnati Bengals, who might be ready to bring him in for visits if he does not sign in Tennessee.
Rouse split last season between the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants. The former Virginia Tech star once had a 99-yard interception return for a touchdown while with the Packers. Battle played college football at the University of Georgia.
The Titans have had their eyes on adding depth at safety, as they hosted Sean Jones last week, but he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
