Gibson hopes to make most of latest opportunity
Posted on October 17, 2012 by JIM WYATT, The Tennessean

The Titans added defensive end Thaddeus Gibson, a fourth-round pick of the Steelers in 2010, to their practice squad on Wednesday. Gibson worked out for the Titans on Friday, as did former Vanderbilt defensive end Tim Fugger.

Gibson, an Ohio State product, played for the Bears in 2011, but he?s spent the past six weeks ?praying and working,? while waiting for another chance. He worked out for the Buccaneers and Colts but went unsigned.

?Being at home put a lot of things in perspective, how much of a privilege it is to play this game and be a part of an organization,? Gibson said. ?I plan on giving it everything I?ve got and hope to make the best of things here.?

The Titans placed guard Chris DeGeare on their practice squad/injured list to make room for Gibson.

When I worked for this club in Pro Personnel, I use to love to try and get my bosses to claim a player off the waiver wire. I wasn?t always successful but at least Jerry and Stephen Jones would let me present my case. My first impression of the waiver claim they made last week of defensive end Thaddeus Gibson has some interesting merit. Gibson physically is a great looking kid in his uniform.

As they would say, ?He passes the eye ball test?. With little or no work last week, he came into the game against the Cardinals and really stood out on tape with his ability to rush the passer. You could see by the way he got in his stance, he knew how to rush the passer. He played in a track stance the entire game and I loved it. He was quick up the field and when he got around the corner, he could really close things down. He played with some bend and redirection that really caught my eye.

There was just so much natural ability in his rush. There was a side of me that wished he could have been in camp with Rod Marinelli the entire time because I think he gets it. I have seen George Selvie develop working here and would be very interested to see if Gibson could have done the same thing. He has two games to show these coaches what he has but this was a claim where someone in that department did their homework.
