Titans sign former Colt lineman Jake Scott

Monday, March 10, 2008

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Offensive lineman Jake Scott agreed to terms on a multiyear contract with the Tennessee Titans on Monday.

The unrestricted free agent played for the Indianapolis Colts the past four seasons, starting 57 games, including a current streak of 55 straight. All but four of his starts came at right guard.

Scott said he doesn't expect much of an adjustment from protecting Colts quarterback Peyton Manning to the Titans' mobile Vince Young.

"Well, hopefully, if I'm doing my job he won't have to get outside the pocket too much," Scott said. "But I don't think it's really going to change a lot of what I do."

Scott replaces Jacob Bell, who left for St. Louis. Scott has eight career playoff starts, including the Colts' Super Bowl win in 2006. He was the fifth-round pick of the Colts in the 2004 NFL draft.

The Titans also hired Earnest Byner as their running backs coach.

Byner, a former Pro Bowl running back, said he looks forward to working with LenDale White.

"I like some of the vision he has, some yards after contact, protects the ball good when he gets into the pile," Byner said.
