The Titans bolstered their running back depth on Wednesday, signing former Chargers tailback Jackie Battle.

Battle (6-2, 240) will compete for a depth chart spot behind Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene. Veterans Jalen Parmele and Darius Reynaud are the Titans’ other backs.

The 29-year-old Battle rushed for 311 yards and three TDs on 72 carries for San Diego in 2012. He also caught a career-best 15 passes for 108 yards and a score. Before joining the Chargers a season ago, Battle spent five seasons with Kansas City.

The Titans also announced the singing of tight end DeMarco Cosby, who was on the Chiefs’ practice squad for a portion of last season. His addition gives the Titans seven tight ends on the roster.

With Battle and Cosby arriving, the Titans waived quarterback Nathan Enderle and running back Alvester Alexander.
