Former Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Corey Levin is going to the Denver Broncos after the team claimed him off waivers.

Teams are making moves on Sunday after roster cut day, and former Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Corey Levin is one of those players on the move.

According to Jim Wyatt of Titans Online, Levin has been claimed off waivers and will join the the Denver Broncos.

The Tennessee-Chattanooga product was a sixth-round pick of the Titans in 2017. He played in all 16 games for the Titans in 2018, spending his time at left guard. He started in just one game.

Levin was one of several cuts made by the Titans on Saturday. We thought he was a good bet to make the initial 53-man roster, but ended up being one of the biggest surprise cuts of the day.

In fact, we thought he could have started at center this season if the Titans decided to move Ben Jones to right guard after the preseason struggles of Kevin Pamphile. Or, another possibility was Levin flat out playing at right guard.

Titan Sized’s own Will Lomas explained why it was a mistake for the Titans to cut Levin.

"The Titans cut their fourth best lineman of the preseason in Corey Levin. Not only should Levin have been the starter at guard, he could have been the starter at center if the Titans would have been able to think creatively.Genuinely this move is upsetting because it tells players that even if you outperform your competition, it doesn’t matter if the coaches have pet projects."

Obviously, that was never in the plans for Tennessee. Instead, the team kept Jamil Douglas and David Quessenberry. Levin was OK during the preseason, which is more than we can say for most of the Titans’ offensive line, which includes Douglas himself.

As for the Titans, they weren’t awarded any players off waivers, although it isn’t clear if they even put in a claim.

The Broncos are getting themselves a versatile lineman who can play both center and guard. He should be an asset along the offensive front for Denver.
