Biography

 
PRO: The Titans signed Moise Fokou (pronounced Mo-EES FOE-koo) in the early stages of the 2013 unrestricted free agency period, adding a young and versatile veteran capable of manning different positions among the linebacking corps.  Following his career at the University of Maryland, Fokou was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft.  He spent three seasons and played in 43 games (22 starts) with the Eagles before being traded to the Indianapolis Colts in 2012.  He played in all 16 games (one start) in his only campaign in Indianapolis before coming to Tennessee where he posted a career-best 98 tackles last season.
