The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with Pitoitua.||||||| General manager Ruston Webster says the 6-foot-8, 315-pound Pitoitua gives the Titans the size they've been wanting at defensive end.

Pitoitua is a four-year veteran with 37 games played in stops with the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs. He started 10 of his 15 games last year with the Chiefs where he led the linemen with 32 tackles.

Pitoitua played in eight games in 2009 before playing in 14 games last season. He has 22 tackles and one sack in his career.

Pitoitua signed a one-year extension through 2012 last September, but the Jets have lots of depth on the defensive line.
