Titans trade for Packers’ Reggie Gilbert

The Tennessee Titans acquired some needed depth at outside linebacker, trading for Reggie Gilbert of the Green Bay Packers.
The Titans are shipping a seventh-round pick to the Packers for the 26-year-old Gilbert, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who first reported news.
Per a league source, Gilbert will report to the Titans on Friday.
Gilbert, who was an undrafted rookie from the University of Arizona in 2016, is recovering from a knee injury, but could be ready for the regular season. He played in all 16 games last season for Green Bay and had 2.5 sacks and four tackles for loss.
Gilbert adds depth for the Titans at a position where the club was thin. Tennessee has second-year pros Harold Landry and Sharif Finch, along with veteran Cameron Wake, who is expected to be a situational player, an Kamalei Correa. Fifth-round pick D’Andre Walker, who was expected to provide depth, landed on injured reserve early in training camp.
The Titans also made two other roster moves, waiving tight end Cole Wick and waiving injured linebacker Josh Smith.
The Titans are scheduled to finish the preseason at Chicago on Thursday night, and then cuts for the regular season roster will be made beginning Friday.
