Titans Add LB/Special Teams Ace in Ola Adeniyi, Formerly of the Steelers


NASHVILLE – The Titans have added depth at outside linebacker – and a key player on special teams – in Ola Adeniyi, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The team and Adeniyi agreed to terms on a contract on Monday.

Adeniyi (6-1, 248) has played in 32 games over the past three seasons with the Steelers, with one start.

He was signed by Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent following the 2018 NFL Draft. Adeniyi spent most of 2018 on the injured reserve list with a hamstring injury and then suffered a torn meniscus in 2019.

Adeniyi, 23, has been credited with 10 tackles, 14 special teams stops and three forced fumbles during his career.

Adeniyi has spent the vast majority of his career playing on special teams. In 2020, Adeniyi was credited with seven tackles and a forced fumble on special teams.

At Toledo, Adeniyi racked up 118 total tackles and 12.5 sacks over 29 career games with the Rockets. His best collegiate season came in 2017, when he notched 66 tackles (20 for loss) and 8.5 sacks.

Last week, the Titans agreed to terms with another former Steeler – edge rusher Bud Dupree.
