Robert Johnson: Tennessee Titans Waive S, Sign Corey Lynch

It appears as though Gary Guyton wasn’t the only newcomer to join the Tennessee Titans training camp party. A couple players were given their pink slips. Here’s a quick rundown of players who were waived and signed (The Tennessean):

LB Gary Guyton
S Corey Lynch

S Robert Johnson
DE Thaddeus Gibson

Among that group, Robert Johnson was the most noteworthy name. The Titans released Johnson after he failed a physical. He started training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. He finished last season on injured reserve. He was the first of two safeties who were chosen in the 2010 NFL Draft. The other player: Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle.

Lynch will replace Johnson. At age 28, Lynch is a five-year veteran who has appeared in 60 games. He hasn’t missed a game since 2009. His career statistics include 91 tackles with five interceptions and a fumble recovery. As a member of the 2012-13 San Diego Chargers, Lynch posted career highs in tackles (46), pass deflections (7) and interceptions (2, ESPN).

Don’t expect much from Lynch. He’s considered as more of a strong safety. The Titans already have Bernard Pollard and George Wilson. They’re more in need of depth behind free safety Michael Griffin.

Consider these as minor adjustments to the training camp roster. Will any of these players make the Titans’ 53-man roster or someone else’s? Is this the end of the road for RoJo? Let us know in the comments, Twitter or Facebook.
