Wednesday NFL Transactions: AFC South

Titans Reduce Roster To 53

The Titans have officially trimmed their roster to 53 players. Tennessee made the following moves:

Waived

A pair of wideouts headline this list of waived players. Fitzpatrick was a fourth-round pick by the organization in this past year’s draft. The 6-foot-2 receiver was a standout during his stint at Louisville, leading to the Titans trading three picks to move up and select him. The rookie could end up falling through to the practice squad, but considering his draft stock, there’s a chance another team will claim him.

Meanwhile, Kinsey was an unheralded acquisition, but he made a name for himself following a strong preseason. The wideout finished August with 14 receptions for 131 yards and one touchdown.

Titans Sign DB Briean Boddy-Calhoun

Briean Boddy-Calhoun has joined his sixth NFL team. The veteran defensive back is signing with the Titans, reports Aaron Wilson (via Twitter).

After appearing in 43 games through his first three seasons in the NFL, the cornerback has been limited to only four games over the past two seasons. He stayed unsigned for most of the 2020 campaign, but after joining San Francisco’s practice squad in December, he managed to get into one game for the 49ers, appearing exclusively on special teams.

While Boddy-Calhoun‘s recent inability to stick around the league is worrying, the former undrafted free agent showed enough to stick around the NFL during his stint with the Browns. In total, the 28-year-old has seen time in 47 games (22 starts), collecting 151 tackles, three interceptions, and three sacks. The cornerback has spent time with the Jaguars, Browns, Texans, Colts, and 49ers.

This transaction follows the Titans placement of defensive back Chris Jones on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Boddy-Calhoun‘s ability to play both cornerback and safety provides him a better opportunity at a roster spot, and he could provide some experience to a team that added three defensive backs in this year’s draft (Caleb Farley, Elijah Molden, and Brady Breeze).

49ers Cut CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun

After adding one defensive back earlier today, the 49ers are letting go of another. San Francisco has waived cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun, reports Cam Inman of The Mercury News (via Twitter).

Boddy-Calhoun joined the 49ers practice squad last December, and he ended up appearing on 16 special teams snaps in Week 14. He re-signed with the organization back in March, but the addition of Tony Jefferson (along with the selection of third-round rookie Ambry Thomas) made Boddy-Calhoun expendable.

The 28-year-old cornerback has spent time with five organizations during his five-year career, including the Jaguars, Browns, Texans, Colts, and 49ers. He appeared in 43 games (21 starts) for Cleveland between the 2016 and 2018 seasons, collecting 138 tackles, three interceptions, and 19 passes defended. He’s appeared in only four games since leaving the Browns in 2019.

With Boddy-Calhoun out of the picture, the likes of Ken Webster, Mark Fields II, and Tim Harris will have an increased chance of making the roster.

49ers Waive CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun

The 49ers moved on from a pair of defenders today. The team announced that they’ve waived cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun and defensive lineman Alex Barrett.

It was less than a week ago that Boddy-Calhoun joined the organization. He signed with the 49ers practice squad last week, and he was subsequently promoted to the active roster. He ended up getting on the field for San Francisco’s loss to Washington, collecting 16 special teams snaps.

The former undrafted free agent out of Minnesota had a solid rookie campaign for the Browns, compiling 43 tackles, 11 passes defended, and three interceptions (including one pick-six). He got into 29 games for Cleveland over the following two seasons before joining the Texans in 2019. His stint in Houston didn’t last long; he was released towards the end of the campaign and had a late-season cameo with the Colts. He remained a free agent for much of the 2020 season.

Barrett, a 2017 undrafted free agent out of San Diego State, has had previous stints with the Lions, Raiders, and the San Diego Fleet of the defunct Alliance of American Football. He saw time in five games for the 49ers this season, and he played a season-high 35 percent of his team’s defensive snaps during San Francisco’s Week 7 win over the Patriots.
