Titans Cut 13 Players Including Veteran C Fernando Velasco


Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports that the team has waived DT Toby Johnson, S Josh Aubrey and TE Tevin Westbrook on Tuesday to get down to 75 players before today’s deadline.

  • Tennessee also placed WR Andrew Turzilli and LB Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil on season-ending injured reserve.

Aubrey, 24, originally signed on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Stephen F. Austin back in April of 2013. He briefly played for the Seahawks before signing to the Texans practice squad in September of last year.

Houston placed Aubrey on waivers shortly after this year’s draft, but he later caught on with the Titans in the first week of August.

In 2014, Aubrey appeared in two games, but didn’t record a single statistic.


The Tennessee Titans have parted ways with 1o players as they begin to trim their roster down 75 ahead of Tuesday’s deadline.

Here’s the list of players who have been either released or waived: C Fernando Velasco, LB Nate Askew, CB Will Brown, LB Dezmond Johnson, WR Tebucky Jones, WR Deon Long, DE Derrick Lott, OG Justin McCray, K Mike Meyer, and OLB Chaz Sutton.

Velasco, 30, originally signed on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia back in 2008. He spent four years in Tennessee before joining the Steelers during the 2013 season.

He had a brief stint with the Panthers before returning to the Titans back in June.

In 2014, Velasco appeared in 14 games for the Panthers and played a total of 407 snaps and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 44 guard out of 78 qualifying players.
