INDIANAPOLIS (WSMV) -

The NFL Combine is underway in Indianapolis, and the Tennessee Titans are getting a chance to see and speak with the players hoping to break into the league.

New head coach Ken Whisenhunt showed up sporting a ballcap, but despite the casual appearance, make no doubt it is all business shaping the team moving forward.

"We're looking for good football players. We've got some good coaches, and what we ultimately do defensively and offensively is going to be a function of the type of players we have," Whisenhunt said.

"We'll continue to work on our offensive line, and building that and getting better. And then defensively, really, I don't think there's nothing that we can't add that would help us," said Titans general manager Ruston Webster.

The future of some current Titans remains up in the air, including running back Chris Johnson.

Johnson is due $8 million next season, and the team is still being patient with that decision.

"Ken's got to take some time, because he's never coached Chris Johnson, so he's going through the evaluation process himself. We're not going to push it," Webster said.

"I see a player that's there every Sunday. He's had a lot of success in the league," Whisenhunt said. "There's no rush to make a decision."

The team has plenty of decisions regarding the defensive backfield as well. Webster says he's talking with the agent of Pro Bowl cornerback Alterraun Verner this week.

"We have to work under the parameters of a salary cap, and we have several good players," Weber said.
