Titans Add Cornerback, Linebacker to Roster


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans have made some adjustments to the roster heading into this week's minicamp.

The team has signed outside linebacker Victor Ochi and cornerback Manny Abad to the roster, and released a pair of players – defensive back Trevon Hartfield and defensive end Caushaud Lyons.

Ochi, who played collegiately at Stony Brook, has spent time with the Chiefs, Jets and Ravens in the NFL. The 6-foot-1, 242-pounder played in two games with the Jets in 2016. He finished his college career with 32.5 sacks, including 13 in his final season.

Abad (5-11, 184), who played at Florida Tech, took part in the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. Abad earned both All-American and Academic All-American honors during his four-year college career, and he totaled seven interceptions and was named all-conference (Gulf South) in each of his four years.

The Titans kick off a three-day minicamp on Tuesday at Saint Thomas Sports Park.
