NASHVILLE – The Titans have added three players to the team's practice squad, including a kicker.
Former Raiders and Falcons kicker Giorgio Tavecchio has joined the practice squad, less than a week after the team placed kicker Tucker McCann on the practice squad/injured list. Tavecchio, born in Milan, Italy, has also spent time with the 49ers (2012), Packers (2013) and Lions (2013–2014) either as a practice squad player or during the offseason.
Tavecchio had a short stint with the Falcons in 2018, and he went 5-of-5 in three games, and a perfect 8-of-8 on extra points. Tavecchio played in 16 games with the Oakland Raiders in 2017, when he made 16 of his 21 field goal attempts, including three from 50-plus yards, and 33 of his 34 extra point attempts. He's played in 19 career games in the NFL.
Tavecchio is the player Titans return man Adoree' Jackson famously hurdled in a game against the Raiders during the 2017 season. As a college player at Cal, Tavecchio made 48 of 64 attempts in 46 career games.
Tennessee's kicker this season, Stephen Gostkowski, is 10-of-17 on his field goals, and 20-of-22 on his extra points.
Also signed to the team's practice squad: Offensive lineman Daniel Munyer and defensive lineman Miles Brown.
Munyer, who played collegiately at Colorado, returns after being waived from Tennessee's roster on Saturday.
Brown (6-2, 320) entered the NFL as an undrafted college free agent with the Arizona Cardinals in 2019. As a rookie, Brown played nine games for the Cardinals, posting four tackles and one tackle for loss. As a college player, he started 49 games and was a three-time All-Southern Conference selection at Wofford. Brown totaled 174 tackles, 38 tackles for loss and 13.5 sacks for the Terriers in four seasons.
The Titans face the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night at Nissan Stadium.
