The Titans managed to re-sign LB Jayon Brown, who was one of the best players available at his position this offseason.
Brown told reporters that he’s really happy to get the opportunity to continue his career in Tennessee.
“I am so happy to be back to the team that drafted me and believed in me from Day One coming into the league with (GM) Jon Robinson,” said Brown, via TitansOnline.com. “And knowing the system that Coach (Mike) Vrabel runs, and with our D.C., with Shane Bowen, just the familiarity with the team and the city that I know, the fan base, it is like I am coming back home.”
Brown added that he’s hoping to finish out his career as a member of the Titans.
“I would love to play in Tennessee my whole career, and hopefully it goes that way,” Brown said. “I can’t tell the future, but Tennessee is a place I’ve grown to love, coming from southern California. I am so comfortable with the city, and our program, and I know what is expected out of me, being a leader, being a playmaker, being a great tackler.
“I am excited to come back to my linebacker coach, Jim Haslett, as well. I still have a lot to learn from him as well, with all the knowledge he has about the game.”
