The Tennessee Titans have resigned another player they originally drafted. They came to terms today with FA wide out Justin McCareins. Of course the other Titan coming back to the team was Jevon Kearse
McCareins was a fourth round pick in 2001 by the Titans out the Northern Illinois University. He is entering into his 8th year in the league. After spending his first three years with the Titans he was traded to the New York Jets for a second round pick in 2004. He was with the Jets until earlier this month when they cut him.
“Justin is a strong, physical receiver that has the ability to get downfield and has a lot of playing experience,” general manager Mike Reinfeldt said. “There is obviously a comfort level from both sides with his previous time here and he adds depth to the receiver group.”
The Titans are trying to rebuild an offense that threw for only 9 touchdowns passes last season. That is why Head Coach Jeff Fisher’s biggest move this off season may have been bringing back former offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger.
McCareins best year came in 2003 with Heimerdinger in control of the offense. That year he had 47 catches for a career high 813 yards and seven touchdowns.
