PRO: The Titans signed Kalif Raymond to the practice squad during Week 17 of the 2018 season to add speed to the receiving corps as well as return ability. In 2019, he was on the practice squad for six games before being elevated to the 53-man roster. He appeared in a total of eight games during the regular season as a reserve receiver and returner. In the postseason, he played in two games with one start. The 5-foot-8-inch, 182-pounder was originally signed by the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent following the 2016 NFL Draft and appeared in four games as a rookie. The Lawrenceville, Ga., native also spent Weeks 4-5 of the 2018 season on the Titans practice squad, and has spent time with the New York Jets and New York Giants.
• In 2019, Raymond saw action in eight games during the regular season and produced nine receptions for 170 yards and one touchdown, four punt returns for 45 yards (11.3 avg.) and 18 kickoff returns for 403 yards (22.4 avg.). Additionally, he appeared in two playoff games and recorded a 45-yard touchdown catch.
