The Titans completed a handful of roster moves today, announcing (via Twitter) that they’ve signed offensive lineman Steve Vallos and linebacker Kendrick Adams, cutting linebacker David Gilbert and lineman Viondy Merisma to clear spots for the newcomers. The series of transactions leaves Tennessee with a full 90-man roster.
Of the four players, Vallos is the only one with regular-season NFL experience, having been active for 59 total contests for the Seahawks, Browns, Jaguars, Eagles, and Broncos. The 30-year-old, who worked out for the Dolphins and Colts this offseason, spent the 2013 campaign with Denver, providing veteran insurance on the interior offensive line after center Dan Koppen suffered a season-ending injury. For Tennessee, he figures to compete for a roster spot, but even if he earns one, he likely won’t see much playing time if the line stays relatively healthy.
As for Adams, since going undrafted out of LSU, he has seen time on multiple clubs’ practice squads, including the Bucs’, Lions’, and Giants’. However, he was cut earlier in the month by New York when the team signed Israel Idonije.
Gilbert and Merisma will have to pass through waivers before becoming free agents.
