NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Safety Chris Hope sees an aggressive defense. Tackle Tony Brown thinks Tennessee is ready for a track meet this season thanks to all the fast, athletic guys around him. Linebacker Stephen Tulloch believes the Titans are group of unknowns ready to make their reputations.
So how much better is Tennessee's defense? Well, a full eight days into training camp, it's tough to tell for sure.
The Titans wrapped up the first week Saturday with Brown and linebacker David Thornton, starters in 2009, still on the physically unable to perform list. End Derrick Morgan, the top draft pick, has yet to practice with the full defense because of an injured calf.
This is a defense that must improve after ranking next to last against the pass last season.
