Titans to release QB Matt Cassel among 3 players being cut
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have told backup quarterback Matt Cassel, safety Da’Norris Searcy and receiver Eric Weems that they will be released.
The moves announced Friday come a day after the Titans said they will be cutting running back DeMarco Murray.
Cassel, 35, spent the past two years with the Titans, and he started two of his six games played. The 13-year veteran also played for New England, Kansas City, Minnesota, Buffalo and Dallas.
The Titans signed Searcy in 2015, and he started 33 of 45 games. He started six of 16 games last season with Kevin Byard an All Pro in his second season, and Johnathan Cyprien the other starter.
Weems caught only one pass last season after signing with Tennessee and was third with 12 tackles on special teams.
