Reinfeldt: Titans will pass on receiver Horn

Tuesday, August 19, 2008 at 3:43pm

Tennessee Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt said the club doesn’t have any interest in bringing wide receiver Joe Horn in for a workout.

“At this point, I don’t think we would have any interest,” Reinfeldt said of Horn, who was released by the Atlanta Falcons.

The agent for recently released wide receiver contacted theTitans on Tuesday to gauge their potential interest in his client.

Ralph Vitolo told The City Paper on Tuesday that he has left messages with Reinfeldt and director of pro personnel Lake Dawson regarding the 36-year-old wide receiver.

The Titans and Falcons are scheduled to play Friday night in the Georgia Dome.

Vitolo said he spoke with Reinfeldt last week to ask if the Titans might have any interest in trading for Horn, who had been trying to leave the rebuilding Falcons.

According to Vitolo, Reinfeldt told him the Titans were not interested in Horn at that time. However, now that Horn is on the open market, Vitolo had hopes the Titans’ interest might pique.

Horn also has a friendship with Dawson, who was his teammate early in Horn’s career with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Horn has had issues with injuries the past few seasons, as he caught just 27 passes in 12 games. His best years came as a New Orleans Saint from 2000-04 where he caught between 78 and 94 passes every year and had four seasons of better than 1,000 yards receiving.

MILLER WAIVED: The Titans have signed defensive back Tuff Harris on Tuesday and waived punter Josh Miller.

Harris had tried out for the Titans last week in a workout.

MILLER WAIVED: The Titans waived veteran punter Josh Miller on Tuesday and signed defensive back Tuff Harris to the 80-man roster. Harris had worked out for the Titans last week.

Miller was brought to camp to help take some of the punting load off Craig Hentrich.
