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 today come a day after the Titans said they will be cutting running back DeMarco Murray.
The 35-year-old Cassel spent the past two years with the Titans and he started two of his six games played. The 13-year veteran has 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. Weems caught only one pass last season after signing with Tennessee and was third with 12 tackles on special teams.
