Veteran defensive backs Eric Green and Roderick Hood were among the players in for visits with the Tennessee Titans, according to league sources.
The Titans had entertained Green during the off-season when he was making the rounds in free agency after leaving the Arizona Cardinals. Green eventually signed with the Miami Dolphins. He was later released by Miami and was with the San Francisco 49ers for a short time before being let go by them before the season started.
Hood was another player the Titans had interest in in the off-season, but he wound up signing with Cleveland. Hood was released right after the Titans defeated the Browns in preseason, and signed with the Chicago Bears, but was let go by them as well.
Also, a league source confirmed Tuesday that Mark Jones will take a physical for the team. Jones was in camp this summer and was used as a kick returner during the preseason. Jones was released by the Titans at the end of preseason in a surprise move, but troubles in the return game have given him potentially another chance in Tennessee.
According to a source, the Titans also planned to host two safeties on Tuesday as well.
The Titans also brought back cornerback Cary Williams to the practice squad, his agent Marc Lillibridge confirmed. Williams was released last week to make room on the 53-man roster for punter Reggie Hodges.
The Titans are short-handed in the defensive backfield, thanks to injuries to Vincent Fuller, out four-to-six weeks with a broken forearm, and Cortland Finnegan, who suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday’s 24-17 loss to the New York Jets.
