Titans reach limit with Hall suspended, Quinn Johnson acquired

Hall_Ahmard

The Tennessee Titans did some juggling at the fullback position as they got down to the roster limit.

Fullback Ahmard Hall has been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Knowing they needed a fullback, the Titans acquired Quinn Johnson in a trade with the Packers. Green Bay receives an undisclosed draft pick in the deal.

“As for Ahmard, we have known that a suspension was a possibility for some time and we have used the preseason to identify players that would fit the mold of what we needed if Ahmard had to miss games,” Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt said. “Johnson is a traditional, downhill, blocking fullback who we think will fill that need. He is a former fifth round pick, who has done a nice job over the last two years for Green Bay.”

The Titans waived the following players: G Ryan Durand, DE Pannel Egboh, WR Yamon Figurs (injured), DE Jacob Ford (injury settlement), S Vincent Fuller, WR Justin Gage, CB Pete Ittersagen (injured), S Robert Johnson and CB Frank Walker. WR Kevin Curtis and T Adam Terry were placed on injured reserve.

The Titans currently have 54 players on their roster, as they still have a roster exemption for Chris Johnson, who ended his holdout this week.

    The Steelers have “zero tolerance” for this kind of behavior by a FB.

    Man. Kevin Curtis didn’t last long. That’s probably a career right there.

    I’m a big fan of WR Lavelle Hawkins, so I’m pleased they kept him instead of Gage. That said, I wish Gage the best–except when playing Tennessee!
