Titans' Coordinator Ready To Install His Defense

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jerry Gray finally is about to install his own defensive schemes with the Tennessee Titans.

Thanks to the NFL lockout last year, Gray had no offseason as the new defensive coordinator to make changes. So Gray said Thursday he just trimmed the fat out of what the Titans had used the year before and managed to squeeze out a unit that ranked eighth in the league in fewest points allowed.

Now he's making sure to tailor his scheme to new players like end Kamerion Wimbley and returning players like linebacker Akeem Ayers. He also has plenty of competition to replace Cortland Finnegan at cornerback.

Gray's not saying what exactly he has in story, though getting to the quarterback is a priority after a measly 28 sacks in 2011.
