Titans Add DB Deante Burton, TE David Wells While Waiving Two Others


NASHVILLE – The Titans have done some roster shuffling following the team's first preseason game.

On Saturday, the Titans agreed to terms with defensive back Deante Burton and tight end David Wells.

Burton, who played at Kansas State, initially signed with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft. He's since spent time with the Packers, Texans, Colts and most recently the Cowboys.

A 6-foot-2, 205-pounder, Burton has been credited with eight tackles and a forced fumble in 11 career games.

After entering the league as a wide receiver, he transitioned to cornerback in the NFL. At Kansas State, Burton played in 48 games (35 starts) and tallied 84 career receptions, 1,085 yards and five touchdowns.

Wells, who played at San Diego State, has spent time with the Cowboys, Chiefs, Patriots, Falcons, Colts and Cardinals after entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2018. Wells (6-6, 260) played in three games, including one start, with the Cardinals in 2021.

Wells played in 52 games with 24 starts and registered 38 receptions for 449 yards and six touchdowns at San Diego State.

Also on Saturday, the team waived former TSU defensive back Terrell Bonds and receiver Brandon Lewis.

The Titans hit the practice field at 1:30 on Saturday at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park.
