01:09 PM ET 03.21 | The Tennessee Titans hosted free agent defensive end Ropati Pitoitua earlier this week, according to Adam Caplan. Pitoitua was most recently with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he played in 15 games, collecting 51 tackles and two sacks. Recent mock drafts have had the Titans taking a defensive end with their 10th overall pick, so this could be a sign that they're looking elsewhere in the draft. Pitoitua would hardly be a game-changing solution for the defensive line, but he could offer consistency and core value to the line. The Titans had also looked at Star Lotulelei, and Titans blog Music City Miracles considered what he might add to the team. Pitoitua was an undrafted free agent in 2008 when he signed with the New York Jets. He spent a year on the practice squad before being promoted to the active roster, but he failed to make an impression and spent some time on injured reserve. He was waived by the team after the 2012 season, when he was picked up by the Chiefs. Pitoitua played his college ball at Washington State, where he had 8.5 sacks and 116 tackles in 36 games over four years.

If the Titans sign Pitoitua and then draft Lotulelei, all the announcers are going to resign in protest.

Quality player, so therefore not up to Jerry's standards.

With the old Fart spending a ton of money this off season on free agents, the Titans better make the playoffs, if not he will probably fire everybody.

I know he doesn't have the skills, but somebody needs to burn the team down and get out their erector set. Perhaps the next owner.
