Titans keeping OLB Bud Dupree 'very possible'.
The Tennessee Titans could be a potential landing spot for outside linebacker Bud Dupree, who became a free agent after spending the past five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
According to reports, the Titans are showing a strong interest in Dupree, and it's "very possible" that he could end up signing with the team.
Dupree, 28, is coming off a torn ACL suffered in December 2020, but he has been a consistent pass rusher in recent seasons, recording 19.5 sacks over the past two years.
The Titans could use an upgrade in their pass rush, as they finished in the bottom half of the league in sacks in 2020.
Dupree would also bring experience and leadership to the Titans' defense, having played in multiple playoff games with the Steelers.
If Dupree does sign with the Titans, he would likely play opposite Harold Landry, who led the team in sacks last season with 5.5.
The Titans have already been active in free agency, signing defensive lineman Denico Autry and cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
Adding Dupree to the mix would make the Titans' defense even more formidable and help them compete in the AFC South.
However, it remains to be seen how much the Titans are willing to pay for Dupree's services, as he is expected to command a high salary on the open market.
