Titans, Falcons interested in veteran DL Odom

Veteran pass rusher Antwan Odom is nearing a comeback, and several teams have expressed interest in the 30-year-old, according to league sources.

Odom, who had become an elite pass rusher for the Cincinnati Bengals, missed all of last season due to a wrist injury. There were complications from wrist surgery where a pin was inserted, resulting in an injury settlement.

The defensive lineman is now about a month away from being able to return, and the Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons are among the teams monitoring him, sources said. He has begun light lifting and making good progress, a source added.

Odom first injured the wrist early in the 2010 season and has not played since. In 2009, he was limited to just six games — but posted eight sacks in that span. He entered the league with the Titans in 2004.
