NASHVILLE, TN, March 26, 2008 –** The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with linebacker Josh Stamer, an unrestricted free agent from the Buffalo Bills.

"Josh has been highly productive on special teams during his time with the Bills," said Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt. "He's an experienced player that will add competition to our linebacking corps."

Stamer (6-2, 236) has spent the past five seasons in Buffalo, where he played in a total of 70 games. His career totals include 15 tackles, one interception and two passes defensed. Additionally, he has 90 career tackles on special teams. In three of his five seasons, he finished in Buffalo's top three in special teams tackles, including 2004, when he set a career high with 29 special teams stops.

In 2007, he played in all 16 games for the fourth time in his career and ranked second on the squad with 15 special teams tackles.

Stamer originally was signed by the New York Giants as a rookie free agent on April 27, 2001. He was waived by the Giants at the end of his first training camp and was re-signed for a portion of the 2002 offseason. He then spent 2002 training camp with the Seattle Seahawks and finally was signed by the Bills on January 21, 2003.

A native of Sutherland, Iowa, Stamer collected 152 tackles, 15.5 sacks, three interceptions and three fumble recoveries during his career at the University of South Dakota.
