Now that the playoff contenders have left veteran pass rushers languishing on the open market, the Tennessee Titans are making their move. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day that John Abraham will visit the Titans in a tire-kicking session.
Rapoport followed that up with a report on "NFL Total Access" that Dwight Freeney also is expected to visit Nashville, Tenn., possibly in the coming days.
No signing is imminent. The team wants to gauge how much each player has left in the tank before moving on to the next step.
Freeney and Abraham rank Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, on Around The League's list of the top 10 remaining free agents. Both players have had to drop their salary expectations since the onset of free agency. If one of the two does sign with the Titans, it presumably would be with the intention of filling the situational pass-rusher role behind Kamerion Wimbley and Derrick Morgan.
