Fasano leaves Titans to return to Dolphins

Veteran tight end Anthony Fasano is leaving the Tennessee Titans and returning to the Miami Dolphins, where he spent five of his 11 NFL seasons, a source with knowledge of the situation told TitanInsider.com.
Fasano, the Titans primary blocking tight end last season, agreed to a one-year deal. He helped Tennessee’s offense finished third in the NFL in rushing. Fasano caught just eight passes last season, but had two touchdowns among those receptions.
The Titans had wanted to keep him, but several teams voiced an interest in the veteran tight end after he stepped in to fill the blocking tight end role vacated when Craig Stevens suddenly retired at the end of the preseason.
The loss of Fasano suddenly makes the tight end position thin for the Titans, who currently have only Pro Bowl pick Delanie Walker, Jace Amaro and street free agent Tim Semitch under contract.
The Titans opted not to tender tight end Phillip Supernaw, but talks remain on-going about the possibility of him signing a friendlier offer than the $1.797 million tender.
Fasano, originally drafted by the Dallas Cowboys out of Notre Dame, came to the Titans as a free agent in 2015 after he had spent two seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Additionally, former Titans first-round pick Chance Warmack, who missed most of last season after undergoing hand surgery, has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. Warmack was the 10th overall pick in the 2013 draft by the Titans.
