Titans have added Super Bowl experience to their roster

The Titans continued to add veteran leadership to their young roster with the signing of Eric Decker. Tennessee, though, hasn’t signed just any ol’ veterans.

Decker became the fourth free agent with Super Bowl experience to sign with the Titans this offseason, joining cornerback Logan Ryan, nose tackle Sylvester Williams and wide receiver Eric Weems.

My foundation was kind of built on the grit, just the ‘do whatever you’ve got to do to help the team,’” Decker told the team’s website, via Jason Wolf of The Tennessean. “That’s so important to me. When I was in Denver, I saw what the culture was like to get to a Super Bowl, and it took, it was kind of unselfishness, everyone doing what their role was, not wanting to be the ‘me guy’ but be the ‘team guy.’”

The Titans are hoping that Super Bowl experience rubs off on the rest of their roster. Their only Super Bowl appearance came in XXXIV to end the 1999 season.

    Are they going to knock off the Patriots next year? No

    But the Titans trajectory is definitely on the ups.

    Mariota just has to stay healthy

    Enjoy watching Decker trip over his own feet and the grass.

    I’ve never understood how Super Bowl experience changes the dynamics of a new team. Are they slackers until a guy who played in the big game shows up? His presence didn’t help the Jets, but now the Titans will win!

    43-8

    Yeah. Eric Decker and Eric Weems. Start planning the parade, because these two ringless wonders are going to be the next Three Amigos. They just need to find one more Eric who has never won a Super Bowl.

    I like why the titans are doing. Hopefully Mariota can stay healthy and make the AFC South more competitive.

    Yes, these 4 players were cornerstones to their SB teams. LOL! Not.

    Just hoping to get the division…Titan Up !!!

    Given the ownership issues the Titans surprised me by going 9-7 last season after 3-13 in 2015. Mariota is rating 93.8, averaging a healthy 7.6yds/pass and 231yds/game. With some veteran additions this team could be going 10 wins and the division title in 2017, especially if Texans’ JJ and/or Clowney can’t play 16 games and their young QBs are down a notch on even on Brock. Colts will struggle too, and Jax 4-12 at most. Ok, so maybe Titans are going to be playoff fodder, but that’s better than where 20 teams will end up.

    It is awesome that it is now exciting to be a Titans fan again. Nice to be in the news, and not for doing dumb stuff.

    I’m very worried that we’re not as good as our 9-7 last year suggests, but for the time being I’m going to enjoy some off season optimism for the first time in years!
