Titans agree to terms with G Jake Scott

I like the news that the Titans have agreed to terms with Jake Scott. He’s one of the guys I mentioned favorably in my offseason positional review of the guards.
Scott should make a good replacement for Jacob Bell at left guard. It’s also good to see the Colts lose another player, as Drexel noted in this article, where he also noted Scott as a possible replacement for Bell.
He may be a little undersized, but so was Bell. As a matter of fact, each of them are listed at 295 pounds. There shouldn’t be a lot of concern about Scott going up against big defensive tackles since he blocked for an Indy line that was rated fifth best in the league running up the middle and sixth best in pass protection.

The move will allow Eugene Amano to play right guard as Benji Olson’s replacement, with both Dan Loper and Leroy Harris available as backups. It gives the Titans even more depth and gives the team more long-term stability on the line, especially if Michael Roos and David Stewart are resigned to multiyear deals.
I like it.
