Titans expected to sign center Lloyd Cushenberry

The Tennessee Titans are expected to sign former Denver Broncos center Lloyd Cushenberry, according to CBS Sports’ Jonathan Jones.

Cushenberry, a former third-round pick in 2020, started immediately at center as a rookie. While Cushenberry had his rookie struggles, he’s since developed into a solid starting center for Denver despite three different coaching staffs in the past four years.

He has started every game in three of his four seasons — the exception coming in 2022 when he landed on injured reserve with a groin strain, missing half of the season. Coming off that injury, Cushenberry started every single game at center for the Broncos in 2023.

Cushenberry has always been better in pass protection than run blocking, but he stepped up in game with a career year in 2023. Cushenberry continued to thrive as one of the league’s better pass blocking centers (earning a 76.4 PFF grade) — allowing just one sack all season — and he made improvement in run blocking (with a 72.4 PFF grade).
