NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tired of being pushed around and run over last season, the Tennessee Titans want to make sure that doesn't happen in 2013.
So they got bigger up front.
And wider.
The Titans had only one starter on the defensive line who pushed the scale to 300 pounds last season, so they brought in three veterans - all 310 or heavier. Tackle Sammie Hill really was their biggest signing at 6-foot-4 and weighing in at a hefty 329.
Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray said Tuesday that offensive linemen are getting bigger with defensive linemen getting smaller isn't good when wanting to stop the run. He says the Titans got some players that can eat up some space.
Tennessee ranked 27th in yards allowed last season.
