Florida State's Christian Ponder
The rebuilding and retooling of the Tennessee Titans may start this week in Mobile, Ala.
That's where the Senior Bowl will be played Saturday. The Titans, who need a quarterback of the future (present?), will get a chance to evaluate guys like Washington's Jake Locker, Iowa's Ricky Stanzi and Florida State's Christian Ponder, as well as fill some of the many other holes on defense and throughout the roster.
But the Senior Bowl is more than just player evaluation. It has also become a job fair for NFL coaches looking for work and for coaching staffs needing to make hires.
For the first time in several years, Jeff Fisher has multiple holes to fill on his staff – needing to locate a defensive coordinator to replace Chuck Cecil, a defensive line coach to fill in for Jim Washburn and his fifth running backs coach in four years as Craig Johnson left for Minnesota to coach quarterbacks.
Stay tuned. This is the where the off-season will shift into high gear for a Titans roster and staff this is looking for an overhaul.
