NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans have added depth – and competition – in the middle of their offensive line with the addition of Tim Lelito.
The Titans and Lelito agreed to terms on a deal Wednesday, when the former Saints guard visited Saint Thomas Sports Park.
Lelito, who spent the past four seasons with the Saints, also visited the Lions last week.
Lelito (6-4, 315) has played in 63 games over the past four seasons, with 24 starts. He played in all 16 games last season for New Orleans, and started seven games. Lelito started 13 games in 2015.
“Tim is another player who fits our mold of being tough, dependable and team-first,” said Titans General Manager Jon Robinson. “He is a versatile player who can play center, either guard, extra tight end or even a jumbo fullback. I saw him play twice a year when I was in Tampa and he played in a good system for the Saints. He is a smart player who will fit in well with that position group.”
Last week, former Titans lineman Brian Schwenke signed with the Colts.
Lelito played in college at Grand Valley State.
During his NFL career, Lelito has registered starts at left guard (12), right guard (4), center (3) and as an extra tight end (5). For the 2015 season with the Saints he started 13 games, including 10 at left guard.
