The Wake signing imo all but confirms we will draft an edge rusher early. 

He's a good reliable player to have in the case the development of Brian Burns for instance takes a while.

"In addition to everything that Cameron Wake is on the football field, the Titans also get the added bonus of Wake’s historic third-down production, as there is probably no greater third-down threat in the NFL than the 11th-year pro. Since 2010, Wake leads the NFL’s edge defenders in third-down pressures (269), third-down knockdowns (109), third-down pressure rate (20.8%) and third-down pass-rush grade (93.5), while his third-down pass-rush win rate of (21.1%) ranks second to only Khalil Mack (21.2%) in that time."

Anyway back on topic, been watching some Landry clips and its good that he can rush effectively form either side because Wake rushes strictly from the the left end position, this will be the first time since Kearse and KVB we have had legit bookend rushers.

Kearse and KVB? Were they even on the team together? If so it was keasre's 2nd stint.

 

Maybe you meant Kearse and Carter.

Yes yes. Carter was such a Titan legend with his 2 sacks and his Saxophone skills playing the Anthem(I wish there was a video of that disaster). Why is his number not retired by the Titans?

Not really sure what your point is here? What is it you think was trying to be said?

Kearse was a shell of his former self with his second stint here. He could not get to the QB but he was a good run defender.

Which is why I was a little confused about what he meant.

Maybe. But a case could be made we had a really good pass rush duo in Kease/Carter but Kearse got hurt. 

 

What happened with Carter? Iirc he was asked to do a lot more than rush the passer unlike in St Louis but it's been a while.

Kearse second stint rushing the passer wasnt good at all. Carter eventually moved to defensive tackle and played mostly there.

Yeah but I wasn't talking about his 2nd stint.

Not early though. He played end for a bit and iirc mover inside on obvious passing downs.

Oh ok. Kearse first 3 years were great, battled injurie all the time though.

 

Carter had a 10 sack year his second year with us. But after that he played alot more DT.

Here at the NFL owners meetings, Titans General Manager Jon Robinson shed more light on how the Titans might use him.

“Outside linebacker,” Robinson said of Wake, while also indicating the team plans to use him with his hand in the dirt at defensive end. “I think (at DE) will be primarily on third down – that’s really primarily where he’s had most of his (success). Not that he can’t play on early downs, but mostly on third down, rushing the passer.

“I think he can (stand up). I think he is athletic enough to do that. When he is out there on run downs, you see him strike with his hands. You see him set an edge. I think he still has good lateral agility, where he can stretch those blocks out. I think he still plays hard.”

Robinson said he anticipates Wake working with outside linebackers coach Shane Bowen during the practice week, but said he’s capable of doing a number of things in the defense.
