NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – With the first round of cuts due on Tuesday, the Tennessee Titans got a head start Sunday waiving 11 players including former third round pick Blidi Wreh-Wilson.
Wreh-Wilson was thrust in the lineup the last two seasons due to injuries and struggled to make plays on the football. The coaching staff gave him a look at safety during training camp, but it was not enough to save his spot with the team.
Also waived were safety Lamarcus Brutus, tackle William Campbell, wide receiver Donte Foster, linebacker Amarlo Herrera, wide receiver Reece Horn, linebacker Deiontrez Mount, cornerback Tyler Patmon, offensive lineman Nick Ritcher and defensive end Mike Smith.
Mount was a sixth round pick last season out of Louisville and was coming back from a torn ACL.
The team also waived center Andy Gallik who was struggling with a knee injury.
In a sport where draft picks are treated like gold, the Titans have already cut ties with three members of last year’s draft class including Dorial Green-Beckham who was traded earlier this month to Philadelphia.
