Titans Claim Nate Palmer

The Titans have claimed linebacker Nate Palmer, as Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com tweets. Palmer was waived by the Packers late last week. "<strong

Palmer, a sixth-round pick in 2013, saw a little playing time during his rookie season before spending the entire 2014 campaign on the injured reserve list. In 2015, he earned a starting job at inside linebacker, but ultimately ceded playing time to rookie Jake Ryan before the year was over. In 16 games (10 starts) last season, Palmer compiled 64 tackles, a sacks, and a pair of passes defended.

Palmer now joins Wesley Woodyard, Avery Williamson, and offseason pickup Sean Spence on the Titans’ depth chart at inside linebacker.

By cutting Palmer, Green Bay reduced his cap number from about $700K to just $25K in dead money. The Titans have now picked Palmer up for the final year of his low-scale rookie deal.
