The first wave of free agency is done, but there are still some marquee names on the market, starting with former Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh.

The Tennessee Titans are among multiple teams that have interest in Suh, who visited the New Orleans Saints earlier this weekend. Suh arrived in Nashville Saturday evening, met with the Titans for a late dinner and he’s visiting the Titans facilities on Sunday, a source said.90

“Super excited about the opportunity down there. Lots to think about,” Suh said in a video leaving New Orleans and headed to Nashville Saturday. “And on to the next on one the tour.”

Titans general manager Jon Robinson isn’t afraid to make splashes. He’s known for being aggressive in trades, and he started free agency by signing star cornerback Malcolm Butler and explosive running back Dion Lewis. Robinson is focused on pushing the Titans to become a championship roster, but he’s been adamant in building the right culture to do so. The latter will be the most important element when determining if Suh-to-Tennessee is a serious possibility.

The Suh questions certainly have ramped up over the past couple of days, as the Titans released starting nose tackle Sylvester Williams and reserve defensive lineman Karl Klug this weekend.

It’s possible the Williams and Klug moves had nothing to do with the 31-year-old Suh. Williams and Klug didn’t have strong 2017 seasons, and both were due sizable roster bonuses or guarantees if they were still on the roster in 2018.reebok nfl jerseys

The Titans defensive line features a Pro Bowl defensive end in Jurrell Casey and a versatile, run-stuffing defensive end in DaQuan Jones, who also can play nose tackle. Reserves Austin Johnson, David King and Antwaun Woods provide some depth options.

But it seems likely the Titans will add another defensive lineman. Defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins would make sense after he was released by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. Hankins played under Titans head coach Mike Vrabel at Ohio State. Connections are important.
