NASHVILLE, Tenn. —Defensive back Brice McCain has experience on the inside and outside in a defensive secondary.
He's a veteran, having played seven NFL seasons.
And now, he's a Titan. On Wednesday, the Titans agreed to terms with the nickel cornerback, who was released by Miami last month.
He'll add depth – and competition – in the secondary, and he'll fight for a significant role with the team this fall.
McCain (5-9, 190) has played 100 games during his NFL career with Houston (2009-13), Pittsburgh (2014) and Miami (2015). He has nine career interceptions.
McCain played in Dick LeBeau's defense at Pittsburgh in 2014, when he registered three interceptions and 25 tackles in 14 games, including nine starts. LeBeau joined the Titans in 2015, and he'll serve as assistant head coach/defensive coordinator in 2016 under coach Mike Mularkey.
With the Dolphins, McCain played in 14 games with 11 starts in 2015. He totaled 39 tackles, eight passes defensed and one interception. Prior to joining the Dolphins, McCain spent five seasons with the Houston Texans after being drafted by the franchise in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He was a three-year starter at the University of Utah.
The Titans are thin at the cornerback position.
Jason McCourty played in just four games last season before being placed on Injured Reserve. He's scheduled to return this fall, and he'll be healthy for offseason workouts.
Veteran Perrish Cox, who joined the Titans last season, also returns, along with Blidi Wreh-Wilson, who played in 10 games a year ago in his third NFL season. Cody Riggs, an undrafted free agent from a year ago, will also compete in training camp.
Coty Sensabaugh is a pending free agent.
