Titans Sign DB Maurice Smith to Futures Contract

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans continue to tinker with their roster with the signing of defensive back Maurice Smith to a futures contract.

Smith spent time on the team’s practice squad during the 2020 season. Both the front office and coaching staff are very familiar with him. Perhaps they saw something worth developing.

Smith has spent time with the Miami Dolphins and Washington Football Team since entering the NFL in 2017. He’s played in 15 career games, and has six career tackles. After transferring from Alabama to Georgia, Smith recorded 50 tackles, three passes defended, two interceptions and two forced fumbles in his final season of college football.
