Titans Defensive Tackle Happy with Horton's Scheme

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jurrell Casey was worried when he first heard the Titans would be switching away from the only defensive scheme he's ever played. Now that he's gotten a good look at what coordinator Ray Horton has planned, the tackle couldn't be happier.

For good reason too.

His position coach believes Casey can do even better than last year when he had a career-best 10 1/2 sacks.

Giff Smith said Monday little changes for the defensive tackle. Casey still is responsible for covering one gap and trying to beat one blocker on his way to the quarterback even when the Titans have only three linemen with their hand on the ground.

That's good for Casey, who is going into the final season of his rookie contract.
