RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jevon Kearse.
Kearse had minor arthroscopic knee surgery in the offseason after being the only Titans' defensive lineman to play all 16 games in 2008. He is now 31 and did not register the big number of sacks last year as he did in his earlier years. He is expected to start again at defensive end for the 2009 Titans and can hopefully be more productive as Kyle Vanden Bosch figures to be healthy again and will likely command double teams, leaving "The Freak" to go one-on-one with offensive lineman who may be to slow to stop Kearse's pass rush.
The Titans are hoping that Kearse can regain some of the magic that he had during his first stint with the team. Kearse had just 12 tackles and 3.5 sacks for the Eagles last season. Kearse is expected to start at defensive end opposite Kyle Vanden Bosch.
Kearse was off to his best start - 3 1/2 sacks in two games - in three seasons with the Eagles before he badly sprained multiple knee ligaments in Week 2 last year. The injury initially was thought to be career-threatening but turned out to be less serious. He figures to enter 2007 healthy and reported to minicamp in terrific shape. He's a major IDP sleeper.
Once of one of the league's most exciting defensive players, Kearse will lead a revamped defensive line starting opposite Darren Howard. His production should rise as opposing lines will have limited double-team opportunities.
Kearse will look to improve upon the 7.5 sacks he registered in 2004 and is ready to lead the Eagles defense to a second straight Super Bowl.
The Freak needs to stay healthy. At 6-4 and just 255 pounds, the size of a big linebacker, he’s susceptible to dings like the litany of hip, shoulder, rib, ankle and back injuries that took their toll on him last season and held him to 14 games played. Kearse has topped 40 solo tackles just once in his career, his rookie season, but is a lock for double-digit sacks in 16 games and can throw in fumble and pass-coverage numbers.
Kearse missed 12 games with a broken left foot before returning briefly last December only to aggravate the injury. He had surgery in February and could be limited early in training camp, but is expected to make a full recovery. He had 36 sacks from 1999 to 2001.
