Kalif Raymond added to practice squad
In a move that was a surprise to no one, the Tennessee Titans added wide receiver/return man Kalif Raymond to their practice squad Monday afternoon.
Raymond made the 53-man roster out of training camp but was released Saturday when management had to address injuries along the offensive line. Guard Aaron Stinnie was promoted from the practice squad and took Raymond’s spot.
The practice squad once again is at its 10-man limit. Nine of the 10 took part in training camp and the preseason with Tennesseee.
The 5-foot-8, 182-pounder was one of the Titans’ most notable preseason performers. He led the team with 14 receptions for 204 yards (15.7 yards per reception) and his 45-yard reception in the finale at Chicago was Tennessee’s longest play of the preseason. He also averaged 11.2 yards on six punt returns and 17.5 yards on four kickoff returns.
Undrafted out of Holy Cross in 2016, Raymond has played in 12 regular season games with the New York Giants (six in 2017), Denver (four in 2016) and the New York Jets (2017).
He served two stints on the Titans’ practice squad last season (he also spent two days on the Giants’ practice squad) but did not see action in the regular season.
It is doubtful that he will remain on the practice squad for the duration of this season.
