TAMPA – The Bucs could still land Sean Jones but the free agent safety has at least one more visit to make before he makes up his mind on where to play in 2010.

Jones is expected to visit the Tennessee Titans on Monday.

Jones, 28, was a 2004 second-round draft pick (59th overall) of the Cleveland Browns. He has started 53 of 59 games played since earning a starter’s role at free safety with the Browns in 2006.

Jones had 14 interceptions in his final three seasons with the Browns and recorded 61 tackles, five pass breakups and two interceptions last season with the Eagles.

Considered more of a thumper than a pass defender, Jones is probably best suited for the strong safety role, a spot the Bucs are looking to upgrade after third-year pro Sabby Piscitelli struggled there in 2009.
