Ahmard Hall RB TEN Feb 16 '78
The Titans have no plans to re-sign free agent FB Ahmard Hall.
Hall has been the Titans' lead blocker since 2006, but has been steadily regressing. He was suspended for the first four games of 2011, and suffered a Week 17 concussion. Collin Mooney and Quinn Johnson will compete to be Chris Johnson's lead blocker.

The Dolphins hosted free agent FB Ahmad Hall on Wednesday.
Hall is 31 years old, and his lead blocking has fallen off significantly with age. He could be in the mix to compete for a job if signed by the Dolphins.

Free agent FB Ahmard Hall said he doesn't think he's in the Titans' plans for 2012.
Hall missed the first four games of the season due to suspension and sustained another concussion in Week 17. The Titans may want to upgrade the lead-blocker position after Chris Johnson averaged a career-low 3.99 yards per carry.

Titans FB Ahmard Hall sustained a concussion in the season finale.
It's a concern for Hall because he has an extensive concussion history. The impending free agent plans won't consider retirement, however. "This is not the first concussion I've had, but I want to continue to play," said Hall.

Titans FB Ahmard Hall will return from his four-game suspension this week and likely regain his starting job.
Hall missed the first month for violating the NFL's policy on PEDs, which he blamed on an over-the-counter stimulant taken to stay awake on a long drive. Hall didn't exactly set the world on fire last season, but replacement Quinn Johnson has graded out as the league's worst lead blocker through four games, according to Pro Football Focus. Hall's return could add another boost to a Titans running game that finally appears to be turning a corner.

Suspended Titans FB Ahmard Hall blames his positive drug test on an over-the-counter stimulant he took to stay awake on a long drive.
"I'm saying now I never took steroids and I never will," Hall said. "But it's up to the fans to believe me on that." Hall's excuse is plausible, but the onus is on the players to be aware of anything that might trigger a positive drug test. Hall can return to the Titans following their Week 4 game in Cleveland.

NFL suspended Titans FB Ahmard Hall four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Hall had a poor season in 2010, and could find himself without a job at the end of his suspension if replacement Quinn Johnson plays well in his absence.

Titans agreed to terms with FB Ahmard Hall on a one-year contract.
Along with the interior of the offensive line, Hall was a primary culprit in the Titans' lack of success on the ground last season. For Chris Johnson's sake, here's hoping Hall returns to 2009 form at age 31.

In addition to Lawrence Vickers, the Titans are also interested in free agent FB Ahmard Hall.
The Texans need a new fullback after losing Vonta Leach to the Ravens. Hall and Vickers brought up the rear in Pro Football Focus' run-blocking ratings last season, so Arian Foster's holes may not be as wide as they were with Leach leading the way.

Free agent FB Ahmard Hall says he would prefer to retire a Titan, but still plans to test the open market.
"I feel like this is my last chance to get a lucrative contract," Hall said. "I definitely want to stay here but I have to take care of my family and try and get the best deal I can get." Hall was once of the league's best lead blockers, but his performance fell off dramatically with the rest of the Titans' run blocking last year. Tennessee would be best served moving on.
