NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans on Tuesday agreed to terms with G/C
“Turner is a guy who got his first opportunity to start last year and he played well,” said Titans general manager Ruston Webster. “He spent time as a starter at both center and guard, so we liked his versatility. He will come here to compete and will either earn a starting role or fill a role as a swing guy for the middle spots.”
A four year veteran, Turner (6-foot-4, 308 pounds) has 57 games of NFL experience with the New York Jets and St. Louis Rams. In his only season with the Rams last year, he started all 16 games — nine at center and seven at left guard — for an offensive line that finished in the top half of the league in both rushing average and sacks per pass play.
Prior to joining the Rams, he spent five years with the New York Jets (2007-11). He played 41 games for the Jets, including two starts in 2009. Turner spent his final season in New York on injured reserve after breaking his leg during the preseason.
Turner originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Jets in 2007 and he spent time on their practice squad before being signed to the active roster in December. At the University of New Mexico, Turner started 49 consecutive games split between guard and right tackle.
