The Tennessee Titans have released Tyler Wilson, the team announced Wednesday. Wilson had been competing for a backup quarterback spot.

The Titans signed Wilson toward the end of last season after the Oakland Raiders released him when he failed to beat out undrafted rookie Matt McGloin for a roster spot.

Wilson, a fourth-round pick of the Raiders in the 2013 NFL Draft, had been splitting training camp reps with rookie Zach Mettenberger.

The Titans also signed tight end Chase Coffman and defensive tackle Lanier Coleman on Wednesday. Coleman has spent time with the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers, while Coffman has played for the Atlanta Falcons, Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Additionally, the team placed tight end Dorin Dickerson on injured reserve. Dickerson was injured in practice last week.
