NASHVILLE – Offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo stepped up when the Titans needed him in 2020, and he earned a return.
The Titans and Sambrailo have agreed to terms on a new contract.
Sambrailo played in 10 games for the Titans in 2020, with five starts, before suffering a knee injury in the team's game at Baltimore in November. Sambrailo finished the season on Injured Reserve.
Following an injury to left tackle Taylor Lewan last season, Sambrailo started five games at left tackle.
He'll join the competition heading into 2021.
The Titans signed former Browns tackle Kendall Lamm last Thursday, just a few days after releasing right tackle Dennis Kelly.
Sambrailo, a 6-foot-5, 311-pounder, has six years of NFL experience, with the Titans, Falcons and Broncos.
He's played in 67 career games, with 18 starts.
Over his six year NFL career, he has logged starts at LT (8), RT (9) and LG (1).
Sambrailo, who played collegiately at Colorado State, joined the Titans last March.
Sambrailo has worked at left tackle and right tackle during his career, and he's also lined up at guard.
Sambrailo spent his first two seasons with the Denver Broncos, where he played in 28 games, including nine starts. Sambrailo then spent three seasons with the Falcons, where he played in 44 games with six starts.
While with the Falcons in 2019, Sambrailo scored on a 35-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter of the team's game against the Buccaneers, and he set some NFL records in the process.
The touchdown catch was the longest touchdown reception by an offensive lineman since 1950, per Pro Football Reference. The previous record holder for longest touchdown catch by an offensive lineman was Hall of Famer Lou Groza, who scored a 23-yard touchdown in 1950. Groza was also a kicker. On the Fox broadcast of last year's game, it was reported that Sambrailo became the heaviest player to ever score a touchdown of 35 yards.
Sambrailo was drafted by the Broncos in the second round, (59th overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Sambrailo was a four-year starter at Colorado State, while earning starts at all five position along the offensive line during his college career
