Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey wants to introduce himself to the Buccaneers rookie quarterback on Sunday.
"That's the goal – two or three times,'' Casey said. "Me personally, I want to (sack) him two or three times. I think every game going into it it's doable, and it's up to me to make it happen."
Casey, heading into his fifth NFL season, had five sacks in 2014, a year after racking up 10.5 in 2013.
The presence of linebackers Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan together should help put Casey in more favorable situations.
"I think if our guys keep rushing the way we have been rushing throughout the OTAs and training camp, I think we should be a whole lot better with our sack total,'' Casey said. "(Having (Orakpo) should help me get freed up to get more 1 on 1s, because he is a respected guy in this league."

Rookie running back David Cobb was in the locker room during the portion open to media on Thursday, and expressed frustration about the calf injury that's sidelined him.
Cobb was injured before the third preseason game. He was placed on short-team Injured Reserve earlier this week, which will sideline him the first half of the season. He's currently rehabbing the injury.
"I was disappointed to learn I was going to miss any games, whether it was two, three, four, five, six or eight,'' Cobb said. "I just have to get ready to help the team out the second half of the season...I will be excited to get on the field again."
Cornerback Perrish Cox (hip) running back Antonio Andrews (hamstring) and offensive lineman Andy Gallik were added to the injury report on Thursday. All three players were limited in practice.
Cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) and defensive lineman Sammie Hill did not practice on Thursday.
