The Tennessee Titans made a trade Friday as roster cuts began taking place around the NFL.
Tennessee acquired defensive lineman David King from the Kansas City Chiefs, the team the Titans faced in the preseason finale Thursday evening.
King was acquired by the Titans in exchange for a conditional seventh-round draft choice in 2018. He had two tackles in the Chiefs’ 30-6 win over the Titans.
King (6-4, 281) was originally a seventh-round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles out of the University of Oklahoma in 2013. He has also spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals and Seattle Seahawks as well.
King joins the Titans at a position where they are already deep with ends Jurrell Casey, DaQuan Jones, Angelo Blackson, Austin Johnson, Karl Klug, nose tackles Sylvester Williams, Antuan Woods, and DeAngelo Brown. The Titans released ends Jimmy Staten and Cameron Robbins on Friday.
The Titans have to be down to 53 players by Saturday at 3 p.m.
