The Titans are scheduled to have contract talks with two-time Pro Bowl DE Kyle Vanden Bosch this weekend, according to a league source.
The team, which has a bye this week, has held an ongoing dialogue with Vanden Bosch, an elite pass rusher who’s eligible for unrestricted free agency after this season.
The Titans are off to an 0-6 start, but they have yet to indicate that they are in rebuilding mode, and they weren’t sellers at Tuesday’s trade deadline. However, they have previously allowed talented defensive linemen to leave in free agency — Albert Haynesworth most recently — and used the draft and expert defensive line coach Jim Washburn to cultivate reinforcements.
Vanden Bosch, 30, doesn’t have a sack for the struggling Titans defense this season, but he produced 16.5 in the previous two seasons despite missing six games.
