The league's worst defense could use an upgrade at safety.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean says George Wilson, formerly of Buffalo, is under consideration by the Titans.

Wyatt reported that Wilson visited the Titans' complex on Wednesday.

He'll be visiting other teams in the coming days after being released by the Bills recently.

At this stage of his career, Wilson isn't a difference-maker but could provide stability for a back end that was torched repeatedly by opposing offenses.

Wilson graded out well in both coverage and run defense in piling up big tackle numbers and holding down the strong safety position for Buffalo.

He would provide a counter-weight to Michael Griffin, who struggled in all phases of the game at free safety in 2012. While the team rotated other players in around him, Griffin consistently looked lost in coverage.

While age is an issue for Wilson, there's no question he would be an upgrade.

It will take more than one mid-tier veteran to fix what ails the Titans, but Wilson would be a positive first step back toward respectability.
