While the Tennessee Titans have still not done much to upgrade their wide out core, they did grab a corner on Sunday, as they have officially come to terms with former Seahawk corner Kelly Herndon. The deal is for 3 years, and Herndon will almost be sure counted on to come in and play right away, as the future remains cloudy for troublemaker Adam “Pacman” Jones.
Herndon’s agent told the AP on Sunday: “He’s excited about the situation, the people and the defense,” Peter Schaffer said. “It’s the best scenario that he found.” The 30-year-old had a memorable 76-yard interception return vs the Steelers in Super Bowl 40 two seasons ago. The INT eventually led to the only touchdown of the game for Seattle. Herndon has nine regular season interceptions in his career, two in the playoffs.
Tennessee still needs some veteran players and some quality players at the wide out spot, but grabbing Herndon was a no-brainer. They realize that Adams, who is currently suspended for the entire 2007 season, is not even a for sure in 2008,as at any moment he can do something else to get in trouble. Adams is another reason why they went out and grabbed CB Nick Harper from the Colts. They also drafted Texas safety Michael Griffin 19 overall in the draft. Now you can bet that the corner position has been filled, receiver will be next.
