The Tennessee Titans will move wide receiver Kevin Walter to the regular season PUP list in order to have him count as one of the move to get to 75 players before Tuesday’s deadline.
Walter, in his 11th NFL season, has been on training camp physically unable to perform list since the start camp opened on July 24 due to having disc surgery on his back.
By transferring him to the regular-season PUP list, the Titans not only create a roster space as they cut to 75 players, it also puts Walters on the shelf for at least six weeks while he continues his rehab.
After six weeks, the Titans will have a three-week window to allow Walters to return to practice and then decide if they want to activate him onto the 53-man roster or put him on injured reserve for the season.
In other moves the Titans have released 13 players today. Those include veteran tackle Barry Richardson, safety Tracy Wilson and linebacker Greg Jones, who was waived/injured with an ankle injury.
Richardson has played for both the Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Rams, and Wilson spent some time on the Titans active roster in 2012 after being promoted from the practice squad.
Also released were kicker Maikon Bonani, receivers Justin Hilton, guard Oscar Johnson, Roberto Wallace and Diondre Borel, cornerback George Baker, linebacker Kadarron Anderson, center Eloy Atkinson and tight ends Martell Webb and DeMarco Cosby.
