Titans add Kris Durham, Brandon Harris and six practice squadders

The Titans claimed wide receiver T.J. Graham off waivers on Sunday, but he won’t be the only wideout trying to pick up Tennessee’s offense on the fly.

The team announced that they have claimed Kris Durham in addition to Graham. The former Lion had 38 catches for 645 and three touchdowns while playing with college buddy Matthew Stafford and brings a big frame with him to Tennessee.

Wide receiver Michael Preston, who has a big frame of his own, was waived with the two new receivers coming on board. The Titans also waived offensive lineman Steve Vallos and defensive back Khalid Wooten.

Wooten was deemed expendable because the Titans claimed cornerback Brandon Harris off waivers from Houston. Harris, a 2011 second-round pick, will join a thin cornerback corps in Tennessee.

The Titans also added six players to their practice squad. Offensive lineman Justin McCray, tackle Will Poehls, defensive lineman Chigbo Anunoby, linebacker Brandon Copeland, running back Antonio Andrews and wide receiver Rico Richardson were all with the team this summer.

    Lions and Titans always seem to trade players.

    Players lions cut are now signing with other teams. It a good thing to see, you’ll like Durham in Tennessee, he’s a quality player and a force in the red zone

    “It going to be a long season in Nashville‚Ķ.”

    That’s a good thing right? The shorter the season, the worse the team? lol

    Go titans!

    Say what you will about Durham, he’s the best 6’6″ white receiver in the league. The Lions have a deep WR corp this year.

    Durham is a good pickup. He’s a solid backup/rotational WR who makes plays. I was surprised he was let go by the Lions, but Detroit is stacked at WR.

    If you come to the season opener at Arrowhead stop by and I’ll give you a beer. It may be the only game either one of us wins this year!

    Brandon Harris might be the worst CB in the league…not sure what could have possibly tempted the Titans to go in that direction.

    A lot of Lions fans liked to bash Duraham. I am not one of them. Big kid (6’6″), nice hands, good hops, serious end zone threat.

    Don’t get me wrong, Durham ain’t Megatron. But he is a nice pickup for the Titans.

    I’m certainly ok with adding Durham, especially when you literally gave up nothing for him.

    Durham is a decent receiver. He’s not gonna dominate a game, but you can’t teach size, and he’s 6’6″.

    Sorry Tennessee, Durham is not a special player. All the bandwagon Lions fans think hes awesome, and that hes a huge red zone threat and this and that. In reality, hes just not that good. At all. Poor route runner. Cannot get separation. The only thing hes improved upon this year is his blocking.

    Sorry Lions bandwagon fans, your favorite player just got cut.

    He’s a threat at decoy that opens up hunter

    Glad to see Brandon Harris in the AFC south.
    He will guarantee my Texans at least one W…
    The guy is absolutely horrible..

    Durham – terrible route runner, no separation, and lousy hands. Good riddance.
