A 5-foot-9, 198-pounder, Blake started 16 games for the Steelers in 2015, his first year in that role. He recorded a career-high 76 tackles, one sack and two interceptions during the regular season, including one he returned 70 yards for a touchdown. Blake also recorded an interception, returning it 35 yards, in the team's playoff win over the Bengals.
He has experience under Titans defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, having played under him in Pittsburgh. On Wednesday, the Titans signed former Steelers linebacker Sean Spence.
Blake, 25, entered the NFL in 2012 as an undrafted free agent with the Jaguars out of Texas El-Paso. He's played in 62 games in his first four NFL seasons.
In addition to a cornerback, he's been a valuable special teams contributor for the Steelers.
Earlier this month, the Titans signed former Dolphins cornerback Brice McCain. The team also returns cornerbacks Jason McCourty, Perrish Cox, Cody Riggs and B.W. Webb, among others.
