Linebacker is still a big need for the Titans as they slumped at this position last season, excluding the occasional flashes from Zach Brown.
Brown still has a high ceiling, but it gets murky after that. We're not sure if Colin McCarthy will ever return to his early form, Akeem Ayers hasn't shown much progression and Moise Fokou struggled for much of the season, as well.
The Titans could be looking to take a linebacker in the first round of the NFL draft, but grabbing a big free agent at linebacker would be even more effective. They could get a guy who is immediately ready to make an impact and focus their attention on other needs with that 11th overall pick.
Former Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson has a visit scheduled with the Titans, according to CBS Sports Insider Jason La Canfora.
Jackson would be a nice fit for the Titans at inside linebacker, and he would be reunited with former defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who is heading into his first season with the Titans.
The Titans need to target a linebacker in free agency, and Jackson is a good start to head that list.
