Titans add veteran CB Johnathan Joseph

Titans add veteran CB Johnathan Joseph

The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a deal with veteran NFL cornerback Johnathan Joseph, a league source confirms.
Joseph, 36, was a first-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals out of South Carolina back in 2006. He joined the Houston Texans in 2011 and had played there up through last season.
Joseph should provide additional depth and could challenge rookie Kristian Fulton for the No. 3 cornerback spot. Fulton was the Titans’ second-round pick from LSU, chosen in last weekend’s NFL Draft.
Joseph last season had one interception in 14 games with 11 starts. For his career, he has 31 interceptions, including seven returned for touchdowns.
Joseph is also quite familiar with Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, who was formerly an assistant coach and defensive coordinator for the Texans prior to becoming the Titans head coach in 2018.
The signing of Joseph also would seem to completely close the door on Logan Ryan returning to Tennessee. Ryan remains an unsigned free agent following a strong season in 2019 where he was part of the Titans team that reached the AFC Championship Game. Ryan picked off Tom Brady’s final pass as a New England Patriot and returned it for a score in the Titans’ 21-13 upset in Foxboro in the AFC Wild-Card Game.
