The Tennessee Titans made an offensive line change on Monday.
Green (6-foot-6, 320 pounds) went undrafted out of Texas A&M after three years as a starter and Second Team All-SEC honours as a senior. He spent the whole 2017 season on the Texans’ practice squad before re-signing with them in March.
Tennessee claimed Houston Texans offensive tackle Carson Green off waivers. Guard Derwin Gray was released in a comparable move.
The majority of Green’s playing time in college was at right tackle. The Titans, of course, are in search of a starter at that position but have two Day Two draft picks – Dillon Radunz (second round, 2021) and Nicholas Petit-Frere (third round, 2022) – as well as a veteran free agent – Jamarco Jones – already competing for that spot.
A seventh-round pick by Pittsburgh in 2019, Gray first joined the Titans when they claimed him off waivers from the Steelers late in the 2021 preseason. He was released in the final cuts before the regular season, brought back in mid-October as a member of the practice squad and remained there for the rest of the season.
Tennessee also needs a starter at left guard. Radunz and Jones figure to get a look at that spot as well.
In January, he was one of the first players Tennessee signed to a futures contract for 2022.
Gray (6-foot-4, 320 pounds) appeared in five games as a backup with the Steelers in 2020 after he spent all of his rookie year on their practice squad. He went to Jacksonville last December when the Jaguars claimed him after Pittsburgh waived him.
