NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans have agreed to terms with cornerback Demontre Hurst, and he'll add to the competition in the secondary.

Hurst spent the past three seasons with the Chicago Bears, where he played in 32 games over the past three seasons. The 5-foot-10, 191-pound Hurst played in 10 games last season, with one start. He's started four games in his NFL career.

"Demontre has been a competitive player for Chicago the last few years, having played outside corner, nickel and been a contributor in the kicking game," Titans General Manager Jon Robinson said. "He has good toughness, is a willing tackler and has shown quickness to match as a coverage player. He has been a durable and dependable player in his time in the league and he'll add competition to that position group defensively and work on special teams as well."

In three NFL seasons, Hurst has totaled 58 tackles and a pair of interceptions, including one in 2016. Hurst's most productive season came in 2014 when he played in 15 games totaling 39 tackles and one interception.

Hurst was signed by the Bears as an undrafted free agent in 2013 after playing in college at Oklahoma.

The Titans signed former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan last month in free agency.

So far, the Titans have added eight new players to the roster since the start of the free agency period.

In addition to Ryan and Hurst, the team has also signed safety Johnathan Cyprien, defensive lineman Sylvester Williams, offensive lineman Tim Lelito, safety Brynden Trawick, linebacker Daren Bates and returner Eric Weems.
