Titans Add Depth to Secondary; Sign CB Hurst
On Monday, Jon Robinson and the Tennessee Titans dipped into the free agent market again, this time adding more depth to their secondary.
Tennessee agreed to terms with veteran cornerback Demontre Hurst, who spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Chicago Bears. Hurst, a former undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma in 2009, has recorded 58 tackles over the past 3 years with the Bears. His most productive season came in 2014, when he recorded 39 tackles and an interception in 15 appearances.
As for his role with the Titans, Hurst adds more depth and competition to a group which already includes prized free agent signing Logan Ryan, as well as veterans Brice McCain and Jason McCourty. What does this mean for the cornerback unit? It could mean that guys like McCain could potentially be competing for roster spots during OTAs and training camp. It could also mean that the Titans want to see more out of former draft picks LeShaun Sims and Kalan Reed as well.
This move also tells me that the Titans are not done adding competition to their secondary, and could try to add another cornerback to the mix in the upcoming NFL Draft.
