Titans Amano, Harris Try To Remain Starters

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans already have shuffled their offensive line this offseason by bringing in five-time All-Pro Steve Hutchinson.

More changes could be coming.

Center Eugene Amano and Leroy Harris, both coming off a pair of surgeries, are back on the field trying to reclaim their starting jobs. At the same time, the Titans are trying to strengthen a unit that uncharacteristically struggled in run blocking last season despite being one of the NFL's best at pass protection.

Amano is trying to hold off Kevin Matthews, an undrafted lineman whose father Bruce is Tennessee's offensive line coach, while Fernando Velasco got to work at right guard as Harris recovered.

Coach Mike Munchak says the result has been good competition, though they hope to lock down their starters quickly in training camp.
