Rennie Curran has been running as the Bucs' first-team weak-side linebacker in OTAs.
Curran has little chance of beating out No. 58 pick Lavonte David, but this could be a sign he has an inside track on a roster spot after spending 2011 out of football. A third-round pick of the Titans in 2010, Curran was cut after making eight tackles in nine games as a rookie. He'd be a special teamer in Tampa. Mon, May 28, 2012 09:01:00 AM

Bucs signed LB Rennie Curran, OG Chris Riley, and K Jake Rogers to reserve/future contracts.

The 97th pick in the 2010 draft, Curran surprisingly spent all of 2011 out of football after being waived by the Titans at final cuts. He's limited to weak-side linebacker in a 4-3. Riley played his college ball at Illinois State.

Titans waived LB Rennie Curran, RB Herb Donaldson, TE Riar Geer, RB Stafon Johnson, TE Cameron Graham, OG Thomas Gray, RB Kestahn Moore, CB Lequan Lewis, WR Michael Preston, and FB Joe Tronzo.

For now at least, the Titans will carry just three tailbacks on the Week 1 roster, reaffirming that they anticipate Chris Johnson to play a big role early. Curran is an athletic, sideline-to-sideline linebacker, but he just didn't fit the Titans' preference to get bigger in the front seven at 5'11/230. Tampa 2-style teams should be looking to claim him on waivers.

News Titans LBs coach Frank Bush says LB Rennie Curran is in the team's 2011 plans.

The under-sized Curran's status got murky after Tennessee drafted both Akeem Ayers and Colin McCarthy, but Bush says Curran still "fits in as one of our weak-side linebackers." Active just nine times as a rookie last season, Curran tallied only eight tackles.

The Nashville Tennessean suggests that Rennie Curran could take over as the Titans' starting middle linebacker if Stephen Tulloch leaves in free agency.

We have a hard time believing this. Coach Jeff Fisher has always preferred thumpers in the middle, and Curran would be small even for a starting weak-side linebacker at 5'11/228. Curran was active for nine games as a rookie, racking up four special teams tackles and just nine on defense.

Titans LB Rennie Curran has been training this offseason as if he will be the starter.

With Gerald McRath out for the first 4 games and David Thornton's health in doubt, Curran could be asked to fill in early. If he preforms well on special teams and backup duty, there's reason to believe he'll be given a shot to compete for a starting gig in 2011.

Titans signed third-round LB Rennie Curran to a four-year contract.

Curran, the 97th overall pick in April, is ticketed for reserve and special teams duties in Tennessee as a rookie. Despite lacking ideal size (5'11/228), Curran has good range and could eventually settle in at weak-side linebacker opposite Gerald McRath, who will begin 2010 on suspension.
Wed, Jul 14, 2010 05:36:00 PM

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said that rookie LB Rennie Curran will play on the outside.

Curran isn't going to beat out Gerald McRath or Will Witherspoon, so he'll be limited to a special teams role to start. He'll have to improve his speed to develop into a quality starter.
Sat, Apr 24, 2010 09:02:00 AM

Titans selected Georgia LB Rennie Curran with the No. 97 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Though lacking in the size-speed combo department (5'11/235, 4.7s), Curran was an overachieving college player. He led the SEC in tackles (135) from the weak-side linebacker position last season, earning first-team all-conference honors. In Nashville, Curran will likely be asked to run down kicks initially. SLB Gerald McRath, MLB Stephen Tulloch, and WLB Will Witherspoon appear entrenched, leaving Curran without a chance at a starting role.
Fri, Apr 23, 2010 10:11:00 PM

Georgia LB Rennie Curran posted a 4.72, unofficially, in the forty at the Scouting Combine Monday.

At 5'11/235, the time is pedestrian for Curran, who projects as a Tampa-2 style weak-side 'backer in the pros. He's wearing roughly a third-round grade.
Mon, Mar 1, 2010 01:54:00 PM

Georgia LB Rennie Curran measured 5'10 1/2 and 235 pounds at the Scouting Combine weigh-in.

It's 10 pounds greater than his college listing. Curran, who projects as a weak-side linebacker in a 4-3 system at the next level, also recorded 25 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He's in the second-day discussion.
Sun, Feb 28, 2010 04:57:00 PM

Georgia LB Rennie Curran will forgo his senior year and enter the draft.

An explosive if undersized (5'11/225) weak-side linebacker, Curran was a 2 1/2-year starter for the 'Dogs. He led them in tackles as a junior by a wide margin, racking up 130 including five for a loss. Curran will be limited to playing in a 4-3 defense, but still figures to flirt with first-day draft status.
