Titans Have Competition At Guard Between Velasco, Harris

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- For four seasons now, Fernando Velasco has been looking for an opportunity.
The undrafted free agent first came to the Tennessee Titans in 2008 and promptly got injured at the start of his first training camp. Since that time, he spent nearly two years on the practice squad and last year as a backup guard and center.
But now, Velasco is finally getting a chance to be considered for a starting role, primarily at right guard.
The primary competition for Velasco is Leroy Harris, a two-year starter at left guard, who is trying to stay in the lineup by moving over to the right side after the Titans signed seven-time Pro Bowl selection Steve Hutchinson as a free agent.
The Titans have said that Velasco might also find himself in the center mix, where Eugene Amano and Kevin Matthews are in a position battle as well. But thus far in camp, Velasco has mostly been at right guard.
