Description: Steve Hutchinson is the newest member of the Tennessee Titans, signing a three-year deal worth $16 million on Thursday.
Insight: The Titans definitely had Peyton Manning in mind with this signing. Hutchinson will be Manning's personal body guard on the offensive line if he ends up signing with Tennessee. Even if Manning looks elsewhere, Hutchinson's massive prescence (6'5, 313 pounds) should give Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker more time to throw, which will improve both players' fantasy stock.
