- Jim Wyatt reports that Succop receives a one-year contract from Tennessee.
- Terry McCormick mentions that Travis Coons will be released to make room for Succop.
- La Canfora previously reported that “several teams” are interested in Succop , but the Tennessee Titans have made the “most progress” thus far.
It appeared as though the Travis Coons won the team’s kicking job when they parted ways with Maikon Bonani, as they got their roster to 53 players. However, Succop was expected to generate plenty of interest in the coming days, so it looks like the Titans are moving quickly to get him under contract.
Tennessee has been trying to a replacement for long-time kick Rob Bironas since they released him back in March.
Succop, 27, was entering the fourth year of his six-year, $14.48 million contract before the Chiefs cut him loose on Saturday. Kansas City elected to go with the cheaper option in undrafted rookie Cairo Santos.
Last year, Succop converted 78.6 percent of his field goal opportunities, but made just one of four from 50 yards or more.
