S Daimoin Stafford, a seventh-round pick out of Nebraska, signed with the Titans. A former JUCO player, who had a solid season at Nebraska. Stafford will vie for a spot on special teams and if he sticks, could have a chance to contribute more in 2014 with Bernard Pollard and George Wilson being stop-gap measures.

G Andy Levitre is out until final week of OTAs following a January knee scope.

OT David Stewart is out until final week of OTAs as he recovers from a broken leg.

Earlier in the off-season, reports emerged that the Titans were shopping wide receiver Nate Washington. No trade came to pass, and Washington is back working with the Titans, even offering advice to younger receivers during practices.

WR Kenny Britt has teased, tantalized and flashed the vast potential the Titans saw in him when they selected him in the first-round out of Rutgers in 2009.

DE Lavar Edwards, a fifth-round pick out of LSU, signed with the Titans. His speed as a rusher is the big attraction, and the fact that he is strong enough to play the run will make him have a chance to contribute.

CB Khalid Wooten, a sixth-round pick out of Nevada, signed with Tennessee. Wooten figures to contribute first on special teams, but is another press corner who can play man coverage and offers decent size at the position.

C Brian Schwenke, a fourth-round pick out of Cal, signed with Tennessee. Not many fourth-rounders come in and have a chance to start as a rookie, but Schwenkie was the top-rated center on Tennessee's board and will compete immediately with holdover Fernando Velasco to start in the middle of the line. Plays with a nasty streak, something that has been missing since the departure of Kevin Mawae in 2009.
