The signing of OLG Eugene Amano to a five-year contract reportedly worth close to $26 million before the start of free agency underscores his importance to one of the game's best offensive lines and the Titans' willingness to spend big to keep the group together. Amano, the Titans' starter at left guard the past two seasons, can also play center, as can Leroy Harris, and it's expected that one of those two players will move into the middle to replace Kevin Mawae, who will be allowed to test unrestricted free agency. Harris is the only projected starter along the offensive line whose contract expires after the 2010 season; Amano, star OLT Michael Roos and rugged ORT David Stewart are all signed through 2014, while ORG Jake Scott's contract expires after the 2011 season. Roos and Stewart signed extensions before the '08 season, pacts that look all the more wise now that they have developed into one of the NFL's best OT tandems.
