Rob Bironas cut by the Tennessee Titans

New, comments

The Titans have released long-time kicker Rob Bironas today.

Justin K. Aller

Jim Wyatt is reporting that the Titans are moving on from Rob Bironas.  He was due a $250,000 roster bonus this week.  That is why the move is being made now.

Bironas was very good for this team at times throughout his career.  He won a lot of games and gave us GUNFINGAZ!!!, but there is no doubt that his leg was starting to fade.  The Titans have decided to cut him before his production really falls off.  It is hard to fault them for that.

With all of that being said, it will be really weird to see someone besides Bironas running out there to kick for the Titans.
