DT Antonio Johnson returns to Titans on a one-year deal

New, comments

The former Colt will have to fight for a roster spot.

Jim Wyatt reported earlier today that the Titans have agreed to one-year deal with defensive tackle Antonio Johnson. "Mookie" started 13 games and made 30 tackles last year with the Colts. Through his career, he has played 67 games including 46 starts, and has 121 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Of course, he started his NFL career with the Titans, who drafted him in 2007 but released him the next season with the intention of putting him on the practice squad, but the Colts picked him up.

With the addition of Johnson, the DT field is very crowded, with DaJohn Harris, Stefan Charles, Jurrell Casey, Mike Martin, Karl Klug, Zach Clayton, Ropati Pitoitua and Sammie Hill also all on the roster. Mookie will have to battle in training camp for a spot on the final roster, which could be very difficult.

The Titans also cut UDFA linebacker Tom Wort, who failed his physical. This is the 14th free agent the Titans have signed this offseason. 14. Fourteen.
