Report: Ryan Succop could sign with Titans Monday


The Titans spent the summer pitting Travis Coons and Maikon Bonani against each other in a competition for the kicking job and Coons came out on top when Bonani was released over the weekend.

His prize may be short-lived, however. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that the team has a strong interest in former Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop and that they could sign him on Monday.

The Titans worked out several veteran kickers last week before Succop was available, so it is hardly a surprise to see that they are thinking about replacing Coons. Succop was 22-of-28 on field goals last season and had 47 touchbacks in 91 kickoffs. He lost out to rookie Cairo Santos in Kansas City, a decision that may have been influenced by Succop’s scheduled salary of $1.95 million against that of an undrafted rookie.

Coons, an undrafted free agent from Washington, hit 2-of-3 field goals during the preseason.

    Would love to see the Titans sign him. Ken Whisenhunt is putting together a very promising team. Can’t wait to see them turn around in 2014!

    Santos had the stronger leg too. by far.

    not to mention, Succop’s 2015 Salary of near 3 million. KC saved a lot of coin over a 3 year period by removing Succop.

    it is also very chiefs to face that kicker week 1 in what is likely a game decided by a field goal or two. go figure.

    I hear the Saints need a kicker too.

    Succop would be a great addition to Titans roster & would boost playoff hopes.

    He’s decent, but if you need a clutch kick, he’s a disaster.

    He has put together a pretty good career considering he was Mr. Irrelevant.

    If he brings the playbook with him, sign ’em!

    I’m not sure who dislikes this guy more, Chiefs fans or Steelers fans.

    Succop is easily the best kicker available at this point and the Titans are wise to snap him up.

    As a long time Chiefs fan, I thank him for the last 5 years and wish him nothing but the best with his new team, except for that week one game, of course…

    Succop may turn out to be a better choice, but I think Coons deserves the first few weeks, at least, to prove he can play. Give the rookie a chance. I mean, the one field goal he missed in the preseason was 60+ yarder.
