NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/THV11) - The Tennessee Titans have waived former Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson and agreed to terms with two players including tight end Chase Coffman.
The Titans announced the moves Wednesday before practice.
Wilson was signed last December, but the Titans traded up in the sixth round to draft Zach Mettenberger of LSU to help back up Jake Locker and Charlie Whitehurst.
Coffman, who played at Missouri, has been with Cincinnati and Atlanta in the NFL and has four career catches. He replaces tight end Dorin Dickerson who hurt a leg in practice Sunday and has been placed on injured reserve. The Titans also agreed to terms with defensive tackle Lanier Coleman, who took part in the team's rookie minicamp in May.
Kevin Patra with NFL.com said that last offseason there was buzz about the possibility of Wilson winning the Oakland Raiders' starting-quaterback job, but as of Wednesday, he's been cut twice in his NFL career.
The Raiders selected Wilson in the 2013 draft, but he was soon released. Patra writes that he's now been cut from the Titans after camp, where he was working towards a roster spot.
