The Tennessee Titans have been in several rumors of attaining a top-notch pass-rusher. We reported about a month ago that they had interest in Mario Williams, who could be entering free agency if the Houston Texans are unable to sign him. 

With the Indianapolis Colts doing some housecleaning, they are at their last resort on trying to trade Dwight Freeney. Some teams are interested, such as the Chicago Bears.

However, the Titans could make a push for the defensive end, who leads Indy all-time in sacks with 102.5. 

Paul Kuharsy, the AFC South blogger for ESPN, definitely thinks the Titans should make a chase:

"Freeney is worth the 20th pick and big money, provided you can strike a contract deal. That's a move that would amount to the Titans saying they are about right now, not 2014. That's when a first-round defensive end picked at the end of April will likely be ready to be a consistent factor -- if he emerges as a top-level pass-rusher at all. This is not a great defensive end class. The odds are against getting an immediate impact rusher at No. 20. Meanwhile, Freeney is a matchup nightmare whose spin move and quickness are incredibly difficult to slow. He'll always draw a double, making life easier for everyone else on the line. And the pressure he brings will make each of the other 10 guys on the field better."
As a Colts' fan, I honestly think Indianapolis should think about keeping him considering the fact that they re-signed Robert Mathis to a long-term deal. With that, they might as well sign Freeney. And he is aging, so keep him for this season, and try to restructure a deal NEXT off-season. Plus, Indy will be getting loads of cap space in 2013.
