Titans To Sign Will Svitek

The Titans are signing veteran tackle Will Svitek, according to John Glennon of The Tennessean (on Twitter). The 32-year-old (33 in January) appeared in 13 games for the Pats in 2013 with two starts.

According to the metrics at Pro Football Focus (subscription required), the Titans have been in the middle of the pack in run blocking and pass blocking so far in 2014. As noted by ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky yesterday, the Titans have spent nearly $30MM on their offensive line this season and the return has not matched the investment. Looking at a simpler metric, through six games, the Titans rank 29th in sacks per pass play. Things didn’t get any easier for Tennessee this year when they lost tackle Michael Roos to a season-ending knee injury.

The Titans are 2-4 this season with wins at the bookends. On Sunday they’ll travel to Landover, Maryland to face the 1-5 Redskins.
