While there is no certainty yet that a deal gets done, a league source indicated that it is a “strong possibility” that the Tennessee Titans could indeed land guard Steve Hutchinson, who visited on Tuesday.
Hutchinson, 34, was released late last week by the Minnesota Vikings, who are in rebuild mode and would fit what the Titans are looking for in improving the offensive line.
Hutchinson has ties to members of the Titans front office from his days with the Seattle Seahawks, and the seven-time Pro Bowl pick is also close with Peyton Manning, whom the Titans are in the midst of pursuing.
The possibility of Hutchinson coming to Tennessee is perhaps not the only move the Titans are looking into in terms of revamping the offensive line.
The Titans are also, according to a league source, discussing centers Chris Myers of the Houston Texans and Scott Wells of the Green Bay Packers. Myers worked with Titans offensive line coach Bruce Matthews when Matthews was assistant offensive line coach in Houston.
Wells has local ties, having played high school football in the Nashville area at Brentwood Academy and at the University of Tennessee.
