Titans part ways
with veteran DT

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have released veteran defensive tackle Shaun Smith a year after signing him to boost their defense.

But Smith started only six of 15 games last season with 44 tackles and one sack.
The Titans have picked four tackles in the past two drafts.
