NASHVILLE – The Titans have signed long snapper Matt Orzech from Miami's practice squad.
The team has been granted a roster exemption for Orzech until he completes the COVID-testing protocol on Monday.
Last month, the Titans signed long snapper Matt Overton to the team's practice squad, and he's been practicing this week following the release of long-time long snapper Beau Brinkley on Tuesday.
The Titans face the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
Orzech, who played collegiately at Azusa Pacific, handled the long snapping duties for the Jaguars in 2019,
appearing in all 16 games. He was originally signed by Baltimore as an undrafted rookie in 2019, but after being waived he was claimed by the Jaguars.
Orzech was signed to Miami's practice squad in September.
In 16 games with the Jaguars in 2019, Orzech handled the team's long snapping duties, and he aided in kicker Josh
Lambo's franchise record for the most field goals in a single season (33). He also snapped to punter Logan Cooke, and he helped Cooke and Lambo become the first teammates to lead the league in net punting avg. (44.5, min. 10 punts) and field goal percentage (97.1, min. 10 attempts) since net punting average first began being tracked in 2000.
At Azusa Pacific, Orzech appeared in 45 games (eight starts) as a tight end and special teams player for the Cougars.
Overton, meanwhile, joined the Titans with 100 games of NFL experience with the Colts (2012-16) and Jaguars (2017-19). Following the 2013 season he was selected as the long snapper for the AFC's Pro Bowl team.
