Titans add another safety, bring Steven Terrell in

Apparently all those issues at the Nashville airport have been cleared up, so the Titans could sign another safety who isn’t Eric Reid.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Titans are signing veteran safety Steven Terrell.

The former Chiefs and Seahawks safety worked out for them recently, so they decided to bring them in.

The Chiefs had a cattle call for safeties last week after losing starter Jonathan Cyprien to a torn ACL. They signed Kenny Vaccaro out of that mix, and put him right into the starting lineup.

They were reportedly interested in bringing Reid in to be a part of it, but somehow or another, “multiple flight cancellations” led to him never making it there.

Reid has been out of work all offseason despite playing well (and occasionally out of position) for the 49ers last year. He visited with the Bengals, but when questions came up about his protests during the national anthem (not of the national anthem, for those who are still confused), the Bengals moved on without him.

  1. Why did the Chiefs have a cattle call for safeties last week when the Titans lost Jonathan Cyprien?

    Is that why Eric Reid was having flight issues?

  2. Their rookie safety Dane Cruikshank was hurt last night and it looked pretty painful. This signing could be to add some depth after that injury. I’m not sure why this post had to be all about Eric Reid. Mentioning Dane Cruikshank would’ve been smart, and maybe telling us more about the guy they signed.

  3. As a Titans fan, i wanted them to sign Reid. The guy never showed for the workout. Blame it on whatever you want to so that it fits the crap you’re trying to sell. The fact is, 4 safeties showed up. They have now signed 2 of the ones who did. Where is Reid? Sounds to me like the man doesnt want a job.

  4. Reid doesn’t have time to play football anyway. He and Kaep are to busy “raising awareness” that Blaine Gabbert proved to be a better QB than Kaep.

  5. Kaepernick and Reid are more concerned about getting a big payoff and raising their political profile through the court case than having to go out and sweat in the August sun with a bunch of dumb jocks.

  6. Reid was the one cancelling flights, and somehow the Titans are the bad guys for not signing him anyway…?
    LOL, whatever fits your agenda, I guess…

  7. “The Chiefs had a cattle call for safeties last week after losing starter Jonathan Cyprien to a torn ACL. They signed Kenny Vaccaro out of that mix, and put him right into the starting lineup.”

    No, sorry not the Chiefs. The Chiefs could however, use some Safety help after Dan Sorensen was injured.

    Eric Reid a candidate for the Chiefs? Well the player to be “that guy” on the Chiefs by sitting or raising a fist during the anthem was none other than Marcus Peters.

    Not saying that was the reason the volatile Peters was bid a goodbye, he had multiple issues, which finally made the Chiefs release such a talented player. Still I do think that Andy Reid, Brett Veach, and Clark Hunt are not fond of players whose focus is not football and team above all else.

    San Francisco is so far left that they think Bernie Sanders is a moderate. Kansas City is main stream America. The fans at Arrowhead don’t love players hijacking the game to subject them to personal political views.

    So no, the Chiefs are probably not a top prospect for Eric.
