ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports in-limbo Browns DC is the "leading candidate" to become the Titans new defensive coordinator.
Mort adds that Chargers TEs coach Jason Michael is the favorite for the Titans OC job. Horton and Whisenhunt have worked together in the past. Horton was the DBs coach in Pittsburgh when Whisnehunt ran the offense. In 2011, Whisenhunt brought Horton over to the Cardinals to run his defense. Whisenhunt wants to run the 3-4 in Tennessee, which is what Horton prefers. Horton oversaw one of the league's most underrated units in Cleveland this past season. He's an aggressive play-caller. Akeem Ayers could be a nice fit at 3-4 OLB.
