NASHVILLE – The Titans are hoping pass rusher Wyatt Ray will be a hit in Nashville.
On Thursday, the Titans agreed to terms with the linebacker/defensive end, who played collegiately at Boston College and spent some time on the practice squads with the Texans, Bills and Jets last season.
Ray is the grandson of the late legendary musician Nat King Cole, and he's the nephew of the late Natalie Cole. Ray's mother Casey and aunt Timolin are twin younger sisters of Natalie Cole.
His full name is Wyatt Cole Ray.
A 6-foot-3, 255-pound pass rusher, Ray was signed by the Browns as an undrafted free agent in May 2019. After being waived by the Browns, he was signed by the Texans, and spent time on their practice squad as well.
He joined the Jets roster for the 2020 offseason and was released last week.
At Boston College, where he was teammates with Titans linebacker Harold Landry, Ray had 17 career sacks, including nine sacks in 12 games in 2018, including four sacks in a game against Wake Forest and three sacks in contest against Louisville.
In his final season at Boston College, Ray tallied career highs in tackles (44), tackles for loss (11.5) and passes defensed (2). He was voted to the all-ACC third-team, but went undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Ray played 50 games over a four-year career at BC. His career totals include 114 tackles, 17 sacks, one forced fumble and one interception as a defensive end for the Eagles
