Titans Add Veteran Offensive Lineman Hroniss Grasu

Shitty free agent class all together

With the cap going up $10-12 million each year, less and less decent FA are becoming available.

 

Paradis/Morse/Saffold/Foster would be all upgrades over what we currently have on the IOL, just struggle to see JRob getting in a bidding war for any of them.

 

It's why despite many here suggesting it's not going to happen you simply can't entirely rule out a first round IOL this year.

First, thanks for the work Aussie.. the bargain in that list to me is #10, Finney.. he has been Pouncey's backup and potentially could really blossom.. but the question is "Is he better than Levin, Jones, Grassu?? maybe not so I don't see us going Center in FA.. the next question is Left guard to replace Spain... could that be Pamphile, Stinnie , or Jones?  Saffold is better but at what cost? so maybe we do draft a LG..

Grasu is similar to Kline only at C.  Gets his ass kicked when he gets over powered but moves well.  Not sure I see a long term solution there but the idea is to bring in some guys and let them compete.  Hope someone blossoms as a good fit for the scheme.  For those who have a ridiculous hate for Jones....... this guy can't carry Jones luggage.  He also wasn't very good when they tried him at OG in Chicago.  Thinks about it.  A 3rd round pick for a C is a pretty high pick with starting expectations and the guy has been a dud.  It is like some team picking up Schwenke after the Titans were done with the guy and thinking he was the missing piece.  Actually Schwenke is probably a better player (now on the Pats roster with a SB ring) than Grasu.

IMO, the Grasu signing is the same as the Pamphile signing last year.    They're simply bringing in a veteran FA to compete and add depth.   

 

I wouldn't read anything at all into it.  If he earns a roster spot....hey, great.   If not, then it's because other guys beat him out.

This could be insurance for an early draft pick to come in and play LG.  That would be my guess.  At the very least, he's another versatile backup.  I believe this is just further evidence that Spain won't be back with us and that they don't plan on making wholesale changes to the interior line via free agency.

 

I would look for a LG in the draft in the first 3 rounds.  They likely saw someone at the Senior Bowl or East/West that they really like and have already targeted that player but need a veteran in case the rookie struggles early.  

That's what I'm thinking. I don't think this move bodes well for Jones.
