The Tennessee Titans continue to focus on beefing up the offensive line after losing All-Pro Jack Conklin in free agency.
The Tennessee Titans have been focused on the offensive line since losing Jack Conklin in free agency. Conklin leaves a big hole to fill, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the offensive line continues to be a focus in the NFL Draft.
With that in mind, the Titans signed offensive lineman Avery Gennesy from the XFL. Gennesy has experience in every football league you can imagine, but he has been unable to hang around in the NFL long-term.
Coming out of Texas A&M, he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent. After that, Gennesy bounced around and also played for the Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos, but he has never taken an NFL regular-season snap.
After being unable to find success in the NFL, Gennesy moved on to the AAF and then the XFL. He found some more success there, most recently in the XFL, where he dominated with the Houston Roughnecks.
The 6-foot-3, 318-pound lineman, has been unable to catch a break after trying to improve his game after leaving the NFL. The AAF shut down after one season, and now the coronavirus has ended the XFL season early.
He’s a very experience tackle that has played right tackle most recently, but he has experience on both sides of the line.
Gennesy is a big guy that can help fill in the gap of Conklin leaving if he can perform like he did in the XFL. Of course, the defensive linemen in the NFL are bigger and better than the ones in the XFL, but I think he could make that next step and be a decent NFL offensive lineman.
This is Gennesy’s first re-debut in the NFL since he left to go to the AAF and the XFL, so he has an opportunity to make a name for himself and give himself an opportunity to get a long-term contract in the NFL.
