Titan coach Mike Munchak would like to have DT Jason Jones back, and said on Wednesday that he can see him splitting time at both at defensive tackle and defensive end, much like he did in 2011.
“We’re going to use him whatever way we think is best to win football games,” Munchak said. “Obviously, if we felt leaving him at defensive tackle for every snap was the way to go, we would have done that. We didn’t do that. So now it’s just a matter of us having the right mix and having him feel good about it.
“We want to use him where he’s most productive. I don’t know that he would not come here over (which position) we were going to play him. The player has to make that decision based on what is best for his career, where he thinks he really is going to have a chance to be most productive, and where can he stay healthy the best.”
In 14 games last season, the 6-foot-5, 276-pound Jones posted 27 tackles and three quarterback sacks, the latter of which was a career-low total.
