Wimbley Makes Easy Transition To End With Titans

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Kamerion Wimbley is settling in very fast at his new defensive end position in Tennessee where the Titans are counting on him to boost what had been one of the NFL's worst pass rushes last year.

It's a bit of a position switch for the man who played linebacker in Oakland. But then again, he's had a lot of changes to deal with this offseason.

The Raiders cut him in March a year into a five-year, $48 million deal rather than rework the contract. While most of the NFL watched Peyton Manning being wooed, the Titans moved quickly after being turned down by the four-time MVP quarterback and signed Wimbley.

Wimbley said Tuesday he was very attracted to Tennessee's young roster along with the chance to get closer to home.
