NFL Rumors: Tennessee Titans may be interested in James Harrison

The Tennessee Titans are in a position where they can use any extra help they can in 2014 and that may lead them to making some bold moves in the near future. While the draft is the main focus at the moment, one veteran name could be not he move to Tennessee to help add a veteran presence on defense.

No official talks have taken place, but Will Lomas writes that the Titans could consider James Harrison at linebacker and if Lomas has crunched the number and made it make sense, chances are so too have the Titans.

Per MusicCityMiracles:

While many believe that Harrison is in decline, that just isn’t true. Last year, PFF rated him as the 9th best OLB, and the 4th best run-defending OLB despite playing only 383 snaps. The Titans would have almost no financial commitment to him, and it would give them even more flexibility in the 2014 NFL Draft.

The limited amount tot snaps versus the cap number Harrison would eat up are also borderline pros that Lomas points out and the whole thing seems to make a lot of sense. The question is does it make as much sense on the field as it seems to make in theory?
