Tennessee Titans roster cutdown open thread

Andrew just posted a final 53-man roster prediction, and the Titans have started cutting players. Here are the cuts that have been reported thus far:

WR Devin Aguilar
TE Brandon Barden
DT Zach Clayton
G Kyle DeVan
DT Lamar Divens
S Aaron Francisco
TE Cameron Graham
CB Chris Hawkins
OL Michael Jasper
WR James Kirkendoll
FB Collin Mooney
C Chris Morris
WR Michael Preston
DT Malcolm Sheppard
S Tracy Wilson
WR D.J. Woods

In addition to the cuts, defensive ends Dave Ball and Leger Douzable, guard Ryan Durand, and linebacker Kevin Malast, and cornerback Terrence Wheatley were placed on injured reserve and will be out for the year.

Terry McCormick reports seventh-round pick DE Scott Solomon has made the team, but had his knee scoped today. The release of Chris Hawkins is probably good news for Ryan Mouton’s job prospects. Zach Clayton is the first name that’s really surprised me, as the Titans kept him on the roster all last year and he was the 3rd DT in the lineup most of the time (Klug was more of a situational player).

With Kenny Britt moving to Reserve/Suspended and Markelle Martin on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform, the Titans are now at the 53-man roster limit. The only player I’m really surprised to see on the team is undrafted rookie free agent defensive tackle DaJohn Harris. Don’t be surprised, though, if the Titans do some roster shuffling the next few days. For one, the Chargers cut fullback Jacob Hester, and I like him a lot more than I like Quinn Johnson. More analysis of the roster as it stands later.
