NASHVILLE – The Titans placed second-round tenders on restricted free agents Teair Tart and Aaron Brewer on Wednesday.
The tenders enable the Titans to match any offer sheet Tart or Brewer might sign with another team, if they choose to do so. If the Titans decline to match, they'd get a second-round pick.
Also today, the team placed a tender on exclusive rights free agent Naquan Jones.
In the NFL, ERFAs are players with fewer than three accrued seasons and an expiring contract. They are eligible for a one-year contract.
Tart, who initially joined the Titans as an undrafted free agent from Florida International, started 16 games for the Titans last season at nose tackle and registered 34 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 22 quarterback pressures, five tackles for a loss and one interception.
Brewer, who initially joined the Titans as an undrafted free agent from Texas State, started all 17 games for the Titans in 2022, with 15 starts at left guard and two at center. He's expected to compete for the starting spot at center in 2023 following the release of Ben Jones.
Jones, who initially joined the Titans as an undrafted free agent from Michigan State, has played in 24 games, with six starts, over the past two seasons and registered 45 tackles, 3.5 sacks, seven quarterback pressures and six tackles for a loss.
