Titans sign veteran safety Kendrick Lewis

The Tennessee Titans signed veteran safety Kendrick Lewis on Wednesday and waived safety Denzel Johnson.

Lewis, a seven-year NFL veteran, was out of the league last year, but previously played for the Kansas City Chiefs, Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens, where new Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees was familiar with him from his time there.

Lewis has 81 career starts, 228 tackles and nine interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns in his career. He also has seven forced fumbles and a pair of fumble recoveries.

Lewis was limited to just six games in his final season in Baltimore as he was placed on injured reserve.

He figures to compete with rookie fifth-round draft pick Dane Cruikshank for the top reserve role at safety behind starters Kevin Byard and Johnathan Cyprien.

Johnson spent all of last season on the Titans practice squad.
