In 2004, WR Drew Bennett started every game for the Titans and finished with a career-high 80 receptions for 1,247 yards and 11 touchdowns. Five years later, Bennett paid a visit to Titans headquarters as a free agent.
According to The City Paper in Nashville, Bennett is ready to accept a reduced role if he re-signs with his former team:
- “I feel like if something gets done here that I can come in and help complement the guys they have,” said Bennett, who was released (on Feb. 25) by the St. Louis Rams. “I know I wouldn’t be coming in as a No. 1 guy. They have a lot invested in guys like Nate [Washington] and Justin Gage and also the first-round pick [Kenny Britt]. But I think I could come in and compete and complement those guys, maybe fill in some holes and work in certain packages.”
Bennett, 30, played only one game for the Rams last season because of a foot injury. However, he told The City Paper the foot has healed and that he’s ready to get back out on the football field:
- “I met with Dr. Elrod and the staff and there was nothing (to) indicate to me anything that might be cause for concern,” Bennett said. “Actually, I’ve been running for a couple of months now, running routes and everything. And the rest of my body, except for the foot, got a chance to rest last season because of the injury, so I’m probably healthier than I’ve been in a while.”
