Tennessee Titans cuts and addition tracker
By Will Lomas
An updated look at the Tennessee Titans moves.
The preseason games are over which means the sad realization of the business of the NFL is now in full effect. Which players are the Tennessee Titans releasing and are there any new additions?
As news pours in I will update this list as much as possible and try to keep it nearly live. Newest updates will be at the TOP of the list.
UPDATE: The Titans’ final 53-man roster has been revealed. Check it out here.
Amani Bledsoe, DL: Cut
Darius Jennings, WR: Added (previously had cut. Sorry!)
All eyes are on Taywan Taylor now.
Mike Jordan, DB: Cut
Logan Woodside, QB: Cut
Not much of a surprise here. Woodside played well this preseason, but the Titans couldn’t afford to waste a roster spot on a third quarterback.
Cody Hollister, WR: Cut
Austin Pasztor, OT: Cut
Jeremy McNichols, RB: Cut
McNichols had a great camp and preseason, but the Titans have decided to roll with three running backs, with David Fluellen being the third. McNichols should land on his feet.
Kalif Raymond has made the roster.
This is big news. It could mean either Darius Jennings or Taywan Taylor will not make the roster. If it’s Taylor, it could mean he’s going to be traded.
Aaron Stinnie, G: Cut
Stinnie is one of the bigger names to be cut thus far.
Derrick Roberson, OLB: Cut
Paul Kuharsky reported this would be the case yesterday. The UDFA out of Sam Houston State finished the preseason strong and has some promise, but the trade for Reggie Gilbert pretty much sealed his fate. Hopefully the Titans can get him on the practice squad.
Titans going with two QBs?
It hasn’t been made official yet, but it looks like Logan Woodside will be cut.
Nothing too surprising there. It was doubtful the Titans were going to waste a roster spot on a third quarterback.
Austin Barnard, P/K: Cut
The whole list so far
Because we love you and don’t want you to have to scroll so far down to see all the names, here’s the entire list of Titans who have been cut to this point as of 10:08 a.m. CDT, courtesy of Titans 247 Sports.
Ryan Hewitt, TE: Cut
We already knew about Durden. Paul Kuharsky had reported yesterday that Hewitt would be cut, but now it’s official.
Kenneth Durden, CB: Cut
Frank Herron, DL: Cut
DeAngelo Yancey, WR: Cut
Yancey is a former fifth-round pick out of Purdue.
Isaiah Mack (news):
All signs are positive that the Titans UDFA will make the roster, which is great because he was easily the best DT on the roster this preseason not names Jurrell Casey or Daquan Jones.
Braxton Hoyett, DT: Cut
The former South Carolina DT gets cut after being signed as an UDFA.
Tyler Marz, OT: Semi-surprise cut
Really surprised to see Marz gone, I thought he played decently well in regular season action last year when he was asked. He should be on the short list to call if the Titans need another OT.
Anthony Ratliff-Williams, Alex Barnes, LaDarius Wiley: Cut
Before the season the fans were divided on whether Barnes or AR-W would be the breakout UDFA of camp. Little did we know that neither would do anything at all and that Mack was the right answer the whole time.
Hall had some potential and could be a PS guy to see how he develops.
LaTroy Lewis, LB: Cut
Former Tennessee Vols LB cut, but there is still hope for him to catch on here in some capacity.
Hroniss Grasu: Cut
I would like to say that I think Grasu was better than Aaron Stinnie or Jamil Douglas in his limited reps. Not sure this keeps the best 9 OL on the roster without an addition.
