Titans Claim Josh Kline; Waive Cody Riggs

The Titans made a roster move today.

The Titans have claimed former Patriots guard Josh Kline off of waivers. Kline was set to be traded to the Eagles for Eric Rowe, but was released after the deal fell through. Jon Robinson didn't let him sit on the market for too long.

Kline started 13 games for the Patriots last season at both guard positions. He grew into that role after making the team as an undrafted free agent in 2013 out of Kent State. The fourth year man has 18 career starts to this point.

He will come in and immediately offer more depth up front for the Titans. Sebastian Tretola and Brian Schwenke were slated behind Warmack and Spain on the depth chart before today. Kline's addition means that the Titans will carry nine offensive lineman on the roster.

To make room for Kline, cornerback Cody Riggs was waived. It's a bad situation for Riggs, who battled his way onto the 53 man roster through camp, but that's life on the bubble. We'll see if the Titans have Kline active on Sunday against the Vikings.
