Titans sign Rod Hood

A shortage of healthy bodies in the secondary has forced the Titans to bring in help from the outside.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that the team has signed veteran cornerback Rod Hood in advance of Sunday’s game with the Patriots. They had Hood in for a workout in late September, but didn’t sign him. The broken forearm suffered by Nick Harper on Sunday night likely forced them to change course.

The Titans were already without Cortland Finnegan and Vincent Fuller, and Harper’s injury left them with Cary Williams and rookies Jason McCourty and Ryan Mouton at cornerback. That didn’t work well against Peyton Manning and doesn’t bode well for a matchup with Tom Brady and the Patriots either.

Hood has been released by the Cardinals, Browns and Bears since April, but started 30 games over the last two years in Arizona. He has 11 interceptions and two touchdowns in 84 career games.

    And for good reason.

    the Titans defense needs a pass rush in order to work… Vanden Bosch has been pedestrian without Haynesworth… he finally looked like his old self this past week… doesnt matter who the CB’s are if Manning/Brady sits in the pocket clean. Hood’s better than most they’ve had back their…

    @nasheagles: We’re getting plenty of pressure from the DT spot and the backup DEs (KVB and Kearse are playing terrible). It doesn’t matter though. Half the time, the QB can let go of the ball after 1.5 seconds and still complete a long pass on our blown coverage after bl@nasheagles: We’re getting plenty of pressure from the DT spot and the backup DEs (KVB and Kearse are playing terrible).
