Dwight Freeney expected to meet with Titans, per report

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Titans are actively searching for another pass rusher. Is Dwight Freeney going to be in the mix next?

Defensive lineman Dwight Freeney is expected to meet with the Tennessee Titans, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Freeney remains one of the top free agents remaining on the market, and the Titans need help along their defensive front.

Tennessee is already meeting with John Abraham, so it appears it will take a look at both veteran pass rushers to determine which route is the best to take. Abraham recorded 10 sacks for the Atlanta Falcons in 2012 before being released prior to free agency.

Freeney finished with only five sacks in 14 games played with the Indianapolis Colts last season, but a transition to a 3-4 defense can be partially credited to the noticeable drop in stats.

At 33, Freeney has been forced to drop his asking price after drawing little interest from other teams this offseason. The Titans would likely be using him as a situational pass rusher on third downs. Tennessee finished ninth in the league in total sacks last year. Freeney or Abraham would be a nice addition on passing plays.
