Tennessee Titans: David Long Aims to be on Short List of NFL’s Best Linebackers

NASHVILLE – David Long rarely – if ever – is one of the first players mentioned when the subject of the Tennessee Titans defense is raised.

After all, that unit features returning stars such safety Kevin Byard, defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons and outside linebacker Harold Landry along with promising youngsters like cornerback Kristian Fulton and safety Amani Hooker.

Long’s name came up early recently, however, when Pro Football Focus released its linebacker rankings for the 2022 NFL season. The fourth-year veteran was included in the “young ascending tier” at No. 17 overall.
