AFC South-Titans moving up

Bass, Johnson give Tennessee clout

Linebacker David Bassis the only NFL player the Chicago Bears waived this year who was picked up by another club, the Tennessee Titans. Bass a 25-year-old linebacker who graduated from Missouri Western State University was a seventh round draft pick for the Oakland Raiders. In his rookie year while on wavers he was claimed by the Chicago Bears. The Titans hope to make Bass their top backup outside linebacker.

Embarrassed by a game with the Bengals last year when he gave up a 22-yard touchdown up the middle and for getting battered attempting to cover Jermaine Gresham, Johnson has worked hard to improve. He is resolute concerning his coverage ability and he is known as a ruthless thumper. With the weight he took off during off-season you are going to see a much improved, quicker, and lively Steve Johnson.

The Titans acquired two exciting linebackers Sunday who promise to get Tennessee out of the cellar and improve their 2-12 AFC South record
