(Sports Network) - The Titans addressed their most glaring holes in free agency by signing highly-regarded guard Andy Levitre from Buffalo, inking strong safety Bernard Pollard from the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens and getting running back Chris Johnson and young quarterback Jake Locker backups by convincing Shonn Greene and Ryan Fitzpatrick to leave the AFC East behind.

Tennessee stills need to give Levitre more help on the interior of the offensive line but getting the potential Pro Bowl selection to Nashville opens up the 10th overall pick at least a bit for Mike Munchak and Company.

The Titans also signed offensive lineman Robert Turner and Chris Spencer in free agency but taking yet another is a strong possibility although there are other needs Tennessee must address.

Wide receiver Kenny Britt is certainly talented but is entering the final year of his contract and has been so unreliable it's hard to imagine him staying in Music City for the long haul so getting an outside threat to team with Kendall Wright could be an option.

Defensive end is also a position that needs help. Derrick Morgan has a nice 2012 season but Kamerion Wimbley was somewhat of a disappointment and bringing in a young pass rusher is expected at some point.

Guards Chance Warmack of Alabama and Jonathan Cooper of North Carolina are reportedly in Tennessee's crosshairs and some have even speculated that the Titans are also high on Warmack's teammate in college, tackle D.J. Fluker.
