Nose tackle Sylvester Williams played just one season in Tennessee before being informed of his release by the club on Saturday.
Williams signed a three-year deal with the Titans before last season worth $16.5 million. By releasing Williams now, the Titans save his $5 million base salary. Tennessee will absorb dead money of $1.33 million for the prorated portion of Williams’ signing bonus that will accelerate onto the cap this year from 2019.
Williams, a first-round pick of the Denver Broncos in 2013, was a disappointment in his only season with the Titans with only 20 tackles and no sacks for Tennessee in 2017.
His release marks the second straight day the Titans have released a defensive lineman, as they let go of Karl Klug on Friday.
The Titans are reportedly set to host Ndamukong Suh, who played for Tennessee defensive line coach Terrell Williams in Miami, in the coming days. Suh was released by the Dolphins earlier this week.
