While Moss Won’t Be a Titan; the Team Wants LB Stephen Tulloch Back

The Titans have essentially closed the door on the return of wide receiver Randy Moss.

However, there is interest in re-signing linebacker Stephen Tulloch even though the Titans selected two linebackers in the first four rounds of the draft.

As for Moss, who was picked up on waivers during the 2010 season after being released by the Minnesota Vikings, general manager Mike Reinfeldt said, “I honestly don’t think we’ll try to re-sign him. We’ve got some young guys we like and I think at this point in his career he will probably go elsewhere.”

Coach Mike Munchak hopes wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins is ready to step up and show improvement.

“We’re excited about Hawkins,” Munchak said. “We think he’s got a great opportunity to provide a lot of competition at that position. When you have new coaches and a new system, he’ll get a nice fresh look this year. I know (offensive coordinator) Chris Palmer is pretty excited about him, so I think he may have the opportunity this year to really get on the field a little bit more.”

As for Tulloch, he has led the team in tackles the last two seasons, and while his contract has expired, it is unknown whether he will be a restricted or unrestricted free agent.

“We’d very much like him back,” Reinfeldt said. “We drafted him. We kind of trained him up. He fits in well. He’s a good player. We’d welcome him back.”
