Titans Worked Out 6 Players Including LB Jayrone Elliott & DE Jacquies Smith

According to Howard Balzer, the Tennessee Titans brought in six players for tryouts this week including LB Jayrone Elliott and DE Jacquies Smith.

The full list of tryouts for the Titans includes:

  1. LB Tyrell Adams
  2. LB Jayrone Elliott
  3. WR Daniel Braverman
  4. WR Chris Matthews
  5. QB Jerod Evans
  6. DE Jacquies Smith

Elliott, 25, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out Toledo back in 2014. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1,535,000 rookie contract with the Packers but did not receive a restricted offer from the team, which is why he’s been testing the open market.

Elliott re-signed with the Packers this offseason but was traded to the Cowboys at the start of the regular season for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2018. Dallas elected to cut Elliott loose after a few weeks.

The 49ers, Colts, Buccaneers, Redskins and Seahawks have recently worked out Elliott but he did not receive an offer from any of these teams.

In 2016, Elliott appeared in 11 games for the Packers and recorded 19 tackles and sack.

Smith, 27, originally signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Missouri back in 2012. He had brief stints with the Jets and Bills before he was waived at the start of the 2014 season and later claimed by the Buccaneers.

Tampa Bay brought Smith back on a one-year exclusive rights contract last year and he returned to the Bucs on a one-year, original-round tender worth $1.797 million for the 2017 season this past May. However, he was cut loose earlier this month.

Smith has been on and off of the Lions’ roster this season.

In 2017, Smith has appeared in one game this season but has yet to record a statistic.
