Titans, Cardinals schedule visits with Brian Orakpo

Linebacker Derrick Morgan is slated to visit with the Falcons, which means that there’s a good chance that he’ll be a former member of the Titans before too much time passes.

The team may have their sights set on Brian Orakpo as a replacement. Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports that Orakpo will visit with the team as he searches for a place to play in 2015.

Orakpo, who ranks 22nd on PFT’s list of the top free agents this offseason, missed nine games last season after tearing his pectoral for the second time in his career. He recorded only a half-sack during his seven games on the field and had one sack in two games before his first tear in 2012, but has 38.5 sacks during the four seasons that he’s been able to avoid a serious injury.

If the Titans don’t reach agreement on a deal with Orakpo, John Keim of ESPN.com reports that he’s set to go on to visit the Cardinals. Arizona signed LaMarr Woodley, but clearly aren’t done looking for additions to the defense in hopes of boosting their pass rush for the 2015 season.

  1. In related news, both teams have misplaced all tape of orakpo since his rookie season.

  2. As a Skins fan I had high hopes on Orakpo even shelled out for his official jersey But he’s been decent at best imo. He’s not bad and not great… decent With potential if he didn’t always get hurt. He gets to the qb area but not ON the qb. Hence decent sack #’s not great. Ok vs the run and seems like a cool guy with a good personality. I wish him the best wherever he ends up.
