Titans pick Bucs' Robinson as GM
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) A person familiar with the deal says the Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with Jon Robinson, Tampa Bay director of player personnel, as their new general manager.
The person spoke with The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because the Titans have not announced the deal.
The Tennessean reported Robinson said he had agreed to a deal with the Titans.
Robinson interviewed with the Titans last week. A native of Union City, Tennessee, Robinson just finished his second season running Tampa Bay’s scouting department and overseeing both college and pro scouting.
He started in the NFL as an area scout for the New England Patriots in 2002, then a regional scout in 2006 before becoming the Patriots’ director of college scouting between 2009 and 2013.
