``There's mutual interest I'd say right now,'' coach Jeff Fisher said. ``I think we'll probably look into the possibility of pursuing things. Where that goes, I can't tell you.''
The Carolina Panthers released Johnson, who turns 35 in July, earlier this month after drafting Dwayne Jarrett. He had 70 catches for 815 yards and four touchdowns last season and became the 16th player in NFL history with 800 career catches.
His 70 catches for 2006 easily tops the receptions of all the receivers currently on the Titans' roster who played in the NFL last year.
Center Kevin Mawae, who played with Johnson when both were with the New York Jets, said he wasn't sure if Johnson's personality would click with the young Titans.
``One thing I do know about Keyshawn, he's absolutely an incredible athlete and a wonderful receiver. The guy works harder than most guys in this league,'' Mawae said. ``He plays hard and he practices hard. That's the kind of guy you need in this locker room.''
