Colts guard/center Mike McGlynn continues to make the rounds in free agency.

According to long-time NFL writer Howard Balzer of, the Packers met with McGlynn this week.

Also, McGlynn will meet with the Titans on Wednesday and Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean reported.

McGlynn, 29, has started 48 games in six NFL seasons. He made 14 starts for the Colts in 2013, with three starts at center and 11 starts at right guard.

McGlynn’s ability to play center could be of interest to the Packers, who lost Evan Dietrich-Smith to Tampa Bay in free agency. JC Tretter, a 2013 fourth-round pick, could be the top in-house option to take over in the middle.

The Titans are set at guard with Andy Levitre and Chance Warmack, and they also appear to have their starting center in Brian Schwenke. However, McGlynn would give them an experienced top interior reserve.

    At least there’s a little tread left on the tire of this former Colts center.

    I’m sure the Packers are thinking center for this guy. Not so sure his blocking abilities can be depended on to protect Aaron. TT needs to get serious about addressing the center. I think EDS was one he was confident to get a deal done with.

    He’d instantly be the best OL for the Packers. Sign him!

    Easily be an upgrade for the worst line in the league.

    Don’t need a center that can pass block, that’s not what a center’s strength has ever been. He is always the smartest player on the field, and the best run blocker.

    This could be as big a signing as Jeff Saturday…

    Be a nice insurance policy for Tretter as well having the ability to play guard.

    I hope the Packers realize it’s foolish to rely on Tretter
