Titans release Cairo Santos, David Quessenberry

After Cairo Santos missed three field goals and had another one blocked in Sunday’s 14-7 loss to the Bills, Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said that he still had confidence in the kicker.

That confidence didn’t help Santos keep his job. The Titans announced on Monday that they have released Santos along with offensive lineman David Quessenberry.

Santos signed with the Titans in early September when they placed Ryan Succop on injured reserve. He was 4-of-5 on field goals before Sunday’s disastrous outing. Santos has also played for the Buccaneers, Rams, Bears and Chiefs, so he’s no stranger to the kicking carousel that’s flung him back onto the open market.

“It was a very painful, extremely disappointing day,” Santos said on Sunday. “I don’t feel sorry for myself, I feel sorry for my teammates and coaches that work hard all week, including myself. I feel sorry for my teammates, my coaches and they deserve to win and I have just got to do a better job.”

Quessenberry was inactive on Sunday. He caught a touchdown pass in the opener and is best known for returning to the field after battling cancer during his time with the Texans.

  1. It has been found that an injury settlement for Santos has been reached for the atomic wedgie he received in the locker room about 4:05 on Sunday.

    If only the Bears had taken the same approach last year…

    You got to get past that. Don’t be like Nagy and let it eat at you.

  3. Maybe Vrabel can turn the off season into one big kicker tryout like the egg head in Chicago did. Probably not though. Vrabel isn’t an awful coach who thinks he’s smarter than everyone.

  4. It strikes me as odd as to why kickers from another league like the CFL don’t get a shot. I mean there are kickers that have really high percentages and its not like kicking is different. Just strange to me that NFL teams are just recycling other teams kicker garbage.

    He’s not the reason they lost but he sure as heck didn’t help.

  7. the odds of an NFL quality kicker performing that badly is .002%. santos was getting paid 800k per year to play and there were millions of dollars bet on that game. how much of a career did santos have left? before this game he made 83% of his field goals and the odds of this are almost impossible. also note that he was one out of two in the baltimore game which the titans also lost. i cannot prove anything here but it should be obvious to anyone but a complete idiot that if you are an NFL franchise you really do not want to rent a kicker who knows he will not be with the team as soon as the main guy gets back………get what i mean??? hint hint……wink wink>>>>
