Titans offensive lineman Byron Stingily knows what it means to play catch up.
He didn't step onto a football field until high school. He went to junior college as a 235 pound defensive end, and transferred to the University of Louisville for his final two years of eligibility 100 pounds heavier and as an offensive lineman. He has mastered the art of making adjustments.
He was drafted in the sixth round of last year's draft and has yet to see action in an NFL game, but there is no doubt that Stingily is spending every day of the offseason getting better. He is lifting weights as well as training with former Titans offensive lineman Brad Hopkins at D1 Nashville.
