Titans G.M. Mike Reinfeldt is a relative unknown to the national public, considering he played in the league eight years and is entering his fifth season in charge of Tennessee’s front office.
Guys tend to have a low profile when they work with coaches like Mike Holmgren in Seattle and Jeff Fisher in Tennessee. With first time head coach Mike Munchak taking over the Titans, Reinfeldt figures to have more influence than ever on the draft. He also has newfound security.
Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that the Titans recently signed Reinfeldt to a multiyear extension, believed to run through 2014.
We think Reinfeldt has done a solid job at G.M. since taking over a difficult situation from Floyd Reese. He’s known as a consensus builder that works well with his team of scouts and coaches.
His first two first-round picks — Michael Griffin and Chris Johnson — were outstanding. The jury is out on the next two — Kenny Britt and Derrick Morgan — although Britt’s talent was a great find late in the first round.
It looks like Reinfeldt will get a chance to keep making picks in Tennessee for a while.
