Tennessee Titans Defense: a collection of no name sleepers?


The phrase “no-name ____” gets thrown around a lot in the NFL. And for the Tennessee Titans, that is exactly what they’ll go to war with this fall on one side of the ball; the no name defense.

“It’s funny because I spent some time in California in the off season and if you talk to anybody who’s not from Tennessee, they can’t tell me two names on our defense, we’re virtually the no name defense,” said Titans Defensive Coordinator Chuck Cecil told me during out exclusive chat.

“So they’re unknown commodities at the defensive end position, Jacob Ford, Williams Hayes- unknown guys from unknown places that are second, third year players. You got Sen’Derrick Marks, a second year player from LSU you have no idea who he is, you got Jason Jones, no one knows who he is, and yet they all have the potential to be very dynamic players individually. Not to mention as a group,” said Cecil.
