Social media reacts to Titans signing EDGE Trevis Gipson

Despite there being less than two weeks until the 2023 season opener, the Tennessee Titans found a way to sneakily add another potential difference-maker to an already stout defense.

The team revealed on Thursday it has signed edge rusher Trevis Gipson after he was waived by the Chicago Bears recently. The terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Gipson ultimately wanted a fresh start that allowed him to join a defensive scheme that suited his skill set much more than the Bears’ — and it’s easy to see why.

Back when he last played in a 3-4 base defense in 2021, the Tulsa product finished with an overall grade of 70.4 (PFF) after he recorded an impressive 24 pressures, 13 tackles for loss and seven sacks.

Gipson also had a dominant last few weeks during the preseason, finishing the exhibition slate with an overall grade of 92.4, totaling two sacks and a league-leading 14 pressures in the process.

The Titans’ newest defender now joins a front that should be among the best in the league, with his presence only strengthening that belief going forward.

While there weren’t too many Titans fans clamoring for this move, that certainly didn’t stop the fanbase from being excited about the potential of this latest addition.
