Titans add kicker Greg Joseph, put Ryan Succop on IR

Titans add kicker Greg Joseph, put Ryan Succop on IR

The Tennessee Titans are giving the kicker turnstile another spin, as they signed kicker Greg Joseph and placed veteran kicker Ryan Succop back on injured reserve Wednesday morning.

The Titans waived kicker Ryan Santoso, who had handled kickoffs the past few weeks, on Tuesday.

The Titans have struggled with field goals this season, as Succop was injured last off-season, had knee surgery and spent the first half of 2019 on injured reserve. Since returning, Succop, who has not regained the leg strength needed to be fully effective, hit just 1 of 6 field goal tries. A 45-yard kick Sunday in a 24-21 loss to Houston was blocked.

According to Joseph’s agent, Brett Tessler, his client agreed to a three-year contract with the Titans, which also sets up an interesting situation in the off-season. Succop’s deal has three more years to run with the Titans as well, as he signed an extension last year.

Joseph was on the Carolina Panthers practice squad and spent last season as the Cleveland Browns kicker, hitting 17 of 20 field goals.

Tennessee has also employed Cairo Santos and Cody Parkey this season with mixed results. The Titans are just 8 of 18 on field goal tries this season.

As part of Wednesday’s moves, the Titans also promoted linebacker Nigel Harris to the active roster and signed receiver Trevian Thompson to the practice squad.
