Titans Release Byron Stingily

The Titans have continued their cutdown to 53 players by letting go of veteran offensive tackle Byron Stingily, according to Terry McCormick of 247Sports.com (Twitter link).

Stingily, who turns 27 next week, re-signed with the Titans back in March after spending the first four years of his NFL career with the team. The former sixth-round pick, who started five games for the club last season, appeared to have a chance to win a starting job this year, with tackles Michael Roos and Michael Oher no longer in the picture. However, third-round rookie Jeremiah Poutasi looks poised to start at right tackle, with Byron Bell as the club’s swing tackle.

Stingily’s new two-year contract with Tennessee featured a $250K signing bonus, so the team will be on the hook for a little bit of dead money in 2015 and 2016.

    Doesn’t make much sense to resign a veteran in Mar 2015 and then release him at the final hours of Sep 2015 which prevents him from joining another team due to deadlines to have rosters finalized. He’s a beast! I guess that’s why the Titans continue to lose…Good Luck!
