Titans keep just four wide receivers on 53-man roster


The Titans made their final batch of moves Saturday, but it’s clear they’re far from finished putting a roster together.

The team announced they released wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, receiver Tre McBride, tackle Byron Stingily, guard Josue Matias, guard Will Poehls, receiver Jacoby Ford, receiver Rico Richardson, quarterback Alex Tanney and running back David Fluellen. They also placed linebackers Zaviar Gooden, J.R. Tavai and Yawin Smallwood on injured reserve.

While Nicks is a name brand based on his time with the Giants, the Titans clearly aren’t too worried about their depth at that position.

They only kept four wide receivers on their 53-man roster at the moment along with five tight ends, so they’re going to have to run an unconventional offense with rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota at the helm.

Either that or they’re joining the teams scouring the waiver wire in the coming hours for better alternatives.
