Titans add offensive line depth with Tim Lelito signing

The Tennessee Titans added some depth to their offensive line Wednesday, agreeing to a deal with veteran lineman Tim Lelito.

Lelito, who has spent all four of his previous NFL seasons with the New Orleans Saints, has been a swing player, making 24 starts in 63 games and spending time at both guard positions and at center.

He also has been used as an extra tight end at times and as a fullback in a jumbo package. His busiest season with the Saints came in 2015 when he started 13 games with 10 of those starts coming at left guard.

Lelito essentially replaces Brian Schwenke on the Titans roster, after the 2013 fourth-round draft pick defected to the Indianapolis Colts as a free agent.

“Tim is another player who fits our mold of being tough, dependable and team-first,” said Titans General Manager Jon Robinson. “He is a versatile player who can play center, either guard, extra tight end or even a jumbo fullback. I saw him play twice a year when I was in Tampa and he played in a good system for the Saints. He is a smart player who will fit in well with that position group.”
