Titans add LB Nate Palmer off waivers from Packers

The Tennessee Titans have added another inside linebacker, claiming Nate Palmer off waivers from the Green Bay Packers on Monday.

Palmer started 10 games for Green Bay in 2015 and had 68 tackles, including 47 solo stops. Palmer also had one sack.

Palmer was a sixth-round pick of the Packers in 2013 from Illinois State. He missed all of the 2014 season with a knee injury. Palmer had 17 total tackles as a rookie with Green Bay three years ago.

The Titans have been working to replenish depth at the inside linebacker position behind starters Avery Williamson and Wesley Woodyard. Tennessee signed former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Sean Spence as a free agent to a one-year contract, and then added Curtis Grant as a street free agent.

The Titans lost a pair of backup inside linebackers in free agency as Zach Brown signed with the Buffalo Bills and Steven Johnson joined the Steelers.

In claiming Palmer, the Titans exercised their first priority on all waiver claims, which they will continue to have throughout the remainder of the off-season, through final cuts and then up through three regular season games.
