I would have loved the Wesley Woodyard signing were it not for one detail. The Titans got him at a fair rate, and he will probably be a solid weak-side inside linebacker. The problem is that I'm not sure that that's where the Titans will play him.
To expand on my point, you have to first remember that Ken Whisenhunt, Ray Horton and Lou Spanos are all 3-4 guys, so the Titans will probably be playing out of the 3-4 a lot more.
Among their current linebackers who could play in the 3-4, there's Akeem Ayers, who will certainly play outside; Moise Fokou and Colin McCarthy, who will hopefully be backups; and Zach Brown and Zaviar Gooden, both of whom project to the inside.
Unfortunately, the two inside linebacker positions aren't interchangeable, and both Zach Brown and Zaviar Gooden would probably fit best as weak-side inside linebackers, where they can take advantage of their speed.
If you remember, that's the position that Woodyard will ideally play. So in my mind, the Titans have three weak-side inside linebackers, all of whom probably won't be playing that position.
Unless one of those players makes a surprising transition, then the Titans didn't make the best personnel decision in signing Woodyard.
