Free-agent LB Stephen Tulloch has said that he wants to move on from the Titans. And with five years of accrued service potentially making him an unrestricted free agent, Tulloch could get his wish. The 26-year-old "Mike" ’backer is coming off his finest season, in which he made a career-high 169 tackles — the fourth-highest total in franchise history. Many of Tulloch's tackles came several yards downfield, however, and he recorded only one sack and one interception, and did not force a fumble. We hear the club is prepared to part ways with Tulloch, giving veteran LB Will Witherspoon an opportunity to move inside, and pursue at least one veteran 'backer in free agency. The club's main focus with regards to re-signing its own players will be bringing back FB Ahmard Hall and OG Leroy Harris. Hall is a very strong presence in the locker room and Harris' play is expected to improve this season after a rough 2010 campaign.
