Next up on our series as we move around the Titans position by position as we approach the 2010 season is the outside linebackers.
After being a strength of the team for the last several seasons, with Keith Bulluck and David Thornton manning the positions, outside linebacker looked like a position of change for the Titans in 2010, as age and injury had robbed both players of some of their talents. That period of change began last year, when rookie Gerald McRath started when Thornton went out, and then accelerated when the Titans signed Will Witherspoon to occupy the weakside linebacker spot previously occupied by the man who were jersey #53 for a decade.
This sort of clean transition was upset a little when the news of Gerald McRath's 4-game suspension came down. Who starts for those first four weeks, and what happens if Witherspoon gets injured during that game? Right now, it looks like the Titans may be searching for answers to those questions.
