NASHVILLE – The Titans have signed defensive back Breon Borders back to the team's roster.
Initially signed by the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Duke, Borders played in six games for the Titans in 2020, with five starts. Borders spent the early portion of the season on the team's practice squad before getting promoted to the 53-man roster.
Borders finished last season with 27 tackles, an interception, six passes defensed and a tackle for a loss.
Borders was waived last week as a result of NFL rules pertaining to the injured reserve list he was placed on in December.
The 6-foot, 189-pounder, Borders originally signed with the Oakland Raiders as a rookie free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft and he has also spent time with the Buffalo Bills, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Football Team, Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins. In 2019 while playing with Jacksonville and Washington, Borders appeared in a career-best 12 games and made his first NFL start. He recorded career-highs with seven tackles and one fumble recovery.
Prior to joining the Titans, Borders appeared in 13 career games with one start and recorded seven tackles and one fumble recovery.
He'll add competition and depth heading into the 2021 season.
