NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans signed defensive end Leger Douzable (LEE-JHAY DOO-zub-ul). He played the last two years for the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he totaled 31 games, 88 tackles, one sack and nine tackles for loss.
In his first two NFL seasons, he played defensive tackle before moving to defensive end last season. Douzable posted the best numbers of his career last season in Jacksonville, when he played in 16 games, started six games at defensive end, registered 61 tackles, one sack, seven tackles for loss and 12 quarterback pressures.
"We are excited to add Leger to our roster," said Titans General Manager Ruston Webster. "He brings versatility to our defensive line group. He has experience at both end and tackle which gives him value in our defensive scheme. The fact that he is a veteran increases the level of competition within our defensive line and makes for a competitive situation."
Douzable entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent from Central Florida in 2008, who signed with the Minnesota Vikings. He was waived at the end of training camp and signed with the New York Giants practice squad and ultimately to their active roster for part of the 2008 season. He spent the 2009 season with the St. Louis Rams before signing with Jacksonville in 2010.
