The Titans are still in talks with free agent RG Louis Vasquez.
Vasquez visited Tennessee last week, but left without a deal. The Titans could bring him in as a pass-blocking upgrade over Jeremiah Poutasi and Chance Warmack. Vasquez is coming off a down season in Gary Kubiak's zone scheme, grading as PFF’s No. 50 guard out of 81 qualifiers. Mar 19 - 3:16 PM

Date:

Free agent RG Louis Vasquez will visit the Titans this weekend.

He was cut by Denver earlier this week. Tennessee had one of the more porous offensive lines in football last year, particularly at guard where Chance Warmack and Quinton Spain looked overmatched. Vasquez was better as a pass protector than a run blocker last season.
Mar 10 - 11:35 AM

Broncos released RG Louis Vasquez.

Vasquez was entering the final year of his four-year, $23.5 million pact. He started 18-of-19 games last season, but really struggled in coach Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme, especially as a run blocker. Vasquez (6'5/335) is ideally built to be a power blocker. He's still just 29 (in April) and should find a healthy market. Vasquez can play either guard or right tackle in a pinch.
Mar 8 - 1:06 PM

The Broncos will move Louis Vasquez back to right guard after he closed out 2014 as the team's starting right tackle.

Right tackle, left guard, and center are question marks on Denver's line. Left tackle and right guard aren't, with Ryan Clady and Vasquez locked into the starting lineup. Vasquez is athletic enough to fit new coach Gary Kubiak's zone-running scheme, and has experience in ZBS from his time in San Diego.

Broncos signed OG Louis Vasquez to a four-year, $23.5 million contract.

The deal includes $13M guaranteed. The Chargers claimed that retaining Vasquez was a priority, but they never proved it with a contract offer. San Diego let the second-best guard available hit the market and he strengthened a division rival. A top-13 overall guard last season according to Pro Football Focus, the 6'5/335 Vasquez is especially effective as a pass blocker. He'll be as asset in the Broncos' quest to keep Peyton Manning upright. An impressive Vasquez stat: In 3,435 career snaps, he has been called for just one penalty.

The Union-Tribune San Diego says re-signing RG Louis Vasquez is still a "top priority" for the Chargers.

They sure haven't acted like it. As of Monday afternoon, the new Chargers regime had yet to even make a contract offer to Vasquez. Losing Vasquez would be a devastating blow for an already lackluster line, but he's expected to test the market and chase the dollar signs.

The Chargers still haven't made a contract offer to free agent OG Louis Vasquez.

Vasquez was initially turned off by what the Union-Trib San Diego refers to as a "modest/insulting" contract proposal under ex-GM A.J. Smith. It's been crickets under new GM Tom Telesco. The Chargers have one of the worst offensive line situations in football and risk losing their best linemen to a thin guard market on which Vasquez will be coveted. The Colts will be in hot pursuit.

The Chargers still haven't made an offer to free agent OG Louis Vasquez.

New GM Tom Telesco has assured Vasquez that he's a top priority, but the Chargers aren't prepared to set the market. Coming off the best season of his four-year career, the 2009 third-round pick is likely fine with that. He's the clear No. 2 guard available in free agency, behind only Buffalo's Andy Levitre. Expect Vasquez to garner heavy interest come Tuesday.

Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole reports the Titans, Colts, and Bills are "chasing" free agent OGs Louis Vasquez and Andy Levitre.

Cole adds that the Chargers' chances of keeping Vasquez are "slim." It would be a mammoth loss for a San Diego line that is already thin on capable blockers. Both Vasquez and Levitre will likely clear $8 million annually on their next deal, while the loser of the trio of teams will likely focus its attention on the Brandon Moores and Donald Thomases of the world.

Free agent OG Louis Vasquez's agent believes the Chargers have "genuine" interest in re-signing his client, but says he "wants to test the market."

"The Chargers had a chance to get something done last November," Vasquez's rep ominously said. "Now, Lou wants to explore every option." Vasquez's rep also confirmed he "definitely" expects the Colts to show interest. The Union-Tribune San Diego reported last week the Colts were going to "make a run" at Vasquez. His market should be robust.

The Chargers have yet to make free agent OG Louis Vasquez an offer.

That's despite the fact that keeping Vasquez is supposedly a priority. The Union-Tribune San Diego reported two weeks ago the Bolts were expected to make an offer "shortly." Vasquez is expected to draw heavy interest on the open market, and with free agents allowed to begin negotiating with other teams in just three days, Vasquez could easily get lured away from San Diego.
Wed, Mar 6, 2013 01:03:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Louis Vasquez "one of the biggest sleeper free agents out there."

The Chargers are going to have their hands full retaining Vasquez thanks to supply and demand. Outside of Andy Levitre, there simply aren't many starting caliber guards available. The Chargers may have to pay more than market value if they want to get Vasquez locked up before free agency opens in two weeks.

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports the Colts "will make a run" at free agent OG Louis Vasquez.

This assumes Vasquez will hit the market; the Chargers can't afford to let him go and are willing to pour money into their offensive line. The Colts' interest makes plenty of sense, though. Indy is weak on the interior O-Line, several old Chargers coaches are now on the Colts' staff, and new Indianapolis VP of Football Operations Jimmy Raye spent the past decade-plus in the San Diego organization. Vasquez and Andy Levitre are far and away the most desirable two guards in a top-heavy market at the position.
Mon, Feb 25, 2013 06:54:00 PM

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports the Chargers are likely to focus on improving their offensive line at the "expense of other spots."

Specifically, "everything" reporter Kevin Acee hears "indicates the Chargers will concentrate resources on the OL — at expense of other spots." As Acee puts it, they've "gotta do what they gotta do." A commitment to saving their line should make re-signing free agent LG Louis Vasquez a no-brainer. The UTSD reported last week re-upping Vasquez was the Bolts' "top priority."
Mon, Feb 25, 2013 12:21:00 PM

The Chargers have identified free agent LG Louis Vasquez as their "top priority" to re-sign and will make him a contract offer "shortly."

The Chargers arrived in Indianapolis on Wednesday, and on Thursday night met with Vasquez's player rep. Vasquez is believed to be seeking $6 million annually. Turning 26 in April, Vasquez would be a hot commodity if he hit the open market.
