Titans add veteran safeties Clayton Geathers and Bradley McDougald, release four others

Tennessee’s front office has been busy today, announcing a handful of roster adjustments.

The Titans signed eight-year veteran safety Bradley McDougald, a former Buccaneer, Seahawk, and most recently Jet. McDougald has played in 105 games, 82 of which were starts, in his NFL career. He has 459 total tackles, 10 interceptions, and 43 passes defended in his eight years. McDougald’s 2020 stint with the New York Jets was his worst since his rookie season, playing in only seven games.

Tennessee also agreed to terms with sixth-year veteran safety Clayton Geathers, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts. Playing in 56 total games, he opted out of the 2020 season coming off of a career-high 2019 campaign. Geathers has 244 tackles with an interception and two forced fumbles in his career.

Also on Monday, the Titans waived defensive back Reggie Floyd, punter James Smith, tight end Deon Yelder, and injured defensive back Maurice Smith.

Defensive back Kevin Peterson was placed on Injured Reserve.

All NFL teams must have their rosters cut down to 85 players by 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
