Steelers LB Terence Garvin to visit Titans on Monday

The Tennessee Titans continue to entertain free agent options, as Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin is scheduled to meet with the team on Monday, per a league source.

Garvin is at least the third player reported to be visiting with the Titans today. TitanInsider reported the former Denver Broncos Louis Vasquez was scheduled to arrive on Sunday night to begin his visit. That visit was originally scheduled for Friday, but Titans coach Mike Mularkey and general manager Jon Robinson were among a Tennessee contingent that attended Ohio State’s pro day in Columbus on Friday.

Also,former Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson is scheduled to visit on Monday after also having his visit rescheduled. Johnson confirmed on his Twitter account that he was en route to Nashville Sunday evening for a visit to Tennessee. A report also said that cornerback Antwan Blake of the Steelers would visit the Titans soon.

Garvin had nine total tackles for the Steelers in 12 games in 2015. He was originally signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent from West Virginia in 2013. Garvin was originally scheduled to be a restricted free agent this off-season, but when the Steelers did not make him a tender offer, he became an unrestricted free agent.

The inside linebacker, if he came to Tennessee, could possibly provide depth at a position where the Titans are relatively thin behind starters Avery Williamson and Wesley Woodyard and special teamer Justin Staples. Both Zach Brown and Steven Johnson, last year’s two primary backups at the inside linebacker spots, are unrestricted free agents.

The Titans have already been busy this off-season reshaping the roster, though most of their moves have been on offense thus far. So far, Tennessee has traded for running back DeMarco Murray and signed center Ben Jones, receiver Rishard Matthews and backup quarterback Matt Cassel.

On defense, the Titans have added nickelback Brice McCain and re-signed nose tackle Al Woods.
