The Tennessee Titans went to the waiver wire Sunday in an attempt to strengthen their special teams.
Linebackers Tim Shaw and Patrick Bailey both were awarded to the Titans. Subsequently Tennessee waived running back LeGarrette Blount and linebacker Stanford Keglar to make room on the roster.
Shaw is a three-year veteran who set a Chicago Bears’ single-season record with 30 special teams tackles in 2009. He originally was drafted by Carolina in the fifth round of the 2007 draft.
Bailey is a two-year veteran who has made 24 special teams tackles in 26 career games with Pittsburgh. He made the Steelers’ roster as an undrafted free agent in 2008.
The Titans also signed six players to their practice squad, five of whom were in training camp. Wide receiver Dominique Edison, cornerback Pete Ittersagen, center Kevin Matthews, safety Myron Rolle and linebacker Patrick Trahan all were brought back after being waived. Also signed to the practice squad was defensive lineman Hall Davis.
It is expected that Blount will be offered one of the two remaining spots on the practice squad.
