Titans release Patrick Ramsey

It wasn’t so long ago we were talking about Patrick Ramsey and Vince Young’s battle for the backup job in Tennessee.

Now he’s not even on the team — at least for this weekend. 

The Nashville Tennessean reports that the Titans released Ramsey Saturday to make room for cornerback Cary Williams, who was promoted from the practice squad.

Tennessee needed an extra cornerback this week with Cortland Finnegan doubtful to play the Jaguars.  They are also carrying Vincent Fuller, who is out with a broken forearm.

It would be surprising at this stage if Ramsey didn’t land back on the Titans roster at some point, but the team risks losing him in the meantime. 

Ramsey does not have to pass through waivers and is free to sign with any team.  We could irresponsibly speculate about a few organizations (Oakland and St. Louis for starters) that could use depth at the position.

    Gregg,
    Ramsey to the Raiders to provide depth? Are you kidding? He’s like the other 2 losers, why would the Raiders add another loser to the team. Sometimes PFT post stupid stuff. Come on guys, be real instead of adding insult to injury. Dumb. Really dumb!

    Uh the Raiders have two backups who’ve started NFL games, they could use improvement at the position, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that they’re not going to sign him.

    At least we’re past week 3 so we don’t have to hear about how everyone’s gonna go to the Lions. Even if Ramsey doesn’t have to pass through waivers.

    Ramsey has far better career numbers than anyone the Raiders have. I would pick him up. He’s the cheap yet experienced type of guy who makes perfect sense on the Raiders right now. A guy who can complete over half his throws and is not an INT machine.
    Honestly, Ramsey right now is probably as good as Jeff Garcia is (due to Garcia’s age and natural end of career decline curve).

    He’s not coming back to the Titans. This is the big move – they had to get Ramsey off the roster before they turned the team back over to VY. Kerry is playing like crapola (as any learned observer would have predicted), so when VY throws a couple INT’s they won’t be screaming for him. However, with Ramsey holding a clipboard, they would have wanted to see him.
    Now, this will soon become VY’s team, sink or swim, and probably Fisher’s future with the team will be dependent on whether or not he can finally start getting along with his highly-paid young qb and win some games. Should be interesting!

    Its too bad that Ramsey’s career was really ruined when Dan Snyder permitted Steve Spurrier to offer Patrick up as “Sack Bait.” Spurrier had no concept of protecting the qurterback, and no interest in learning. So – - another young QB was set up for slaughter.

    Right on, alexc.
    He’s way better than anything we have right now.

    If it wasn’t for Steve Spurrier, Ramsey could very well be a starter in this league. Unfortunetly the “Old Ball Coach” truely screwed this guy out of a professional career. Very sad.

    Should they be releasing QBs? I mean they aren’t exactly currently stocked at that position. They don’t have an NFL caliber starter right now…

    They probably should. He can’t do much worse than the guys Oakland already has at QB.
    But I see him resigning with the Titans Monday or Tuesday…
