Titans Players Excited About Defense Coming Together

Posted Jun 12, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- With one week left in the off-season program, Ray Horton’s defensive system is taking shape – and that has Titans players excited as they approach the start of training camp next month at Saint Thomas Sports Park.

Veteran cornerback Jason McCourty said the defense has made huge strides since it was first implemented just over two months ago.

“When we first installed the defense, a lot of our heads were spinning trying to get a grasp of everything Coach Horton was trying to get us to understand,” McCourty said. “Now you can see it really coming together -- guys communicating a lot knowing what to expect -- and you can see bonds being formed inside and outside of the locker room.”

Versatility is one of the key differences McCourty said is different about this year’s defense.

“Guys are moving around to different positions. Corners can end up doing a safety's job, a safety can end up doing a corner's job,” he said. “It’s allowing us to do more things within the defense.”

McCourty added that everyone on the defense has embraced the changes and is excited to see how it plays out this season.

“Now it's up to us as players to continue to get into that playbook and master it so when it comes to Sundays we'll be able to execute,” he said.
